Designers get very extra with their luxury fashion during the cruise collections, throwing giant extravaganzas in far-flung locations around the globe. Cruise, a.k.a. Resort, the season between spring and fall whose clothes land in stores around November/December, has all the big designer names participating in these luxury fashion spectacles.

From Virginie Viard’s first collection for Chanel in the Grand Palais that was transformed into a train station to Dior infiltrating Morocco and Prada coming to NYC, see below for all of the best looks from the luxury fashion built for fabulous vacations.

Gucci

Alessandro Michele made a political statement and showed Gucci’s resort collection at the oldest museum in the world, the Musei Capitolini, in Rome last night. Models walked among statues, lit by torches, perhaps as a nod to the idea that we might be returning to the dark ages. Women in the US are under attack, with politicians voting to severely limit their reproductive rights, and Michele took the runway as an opportunity for activism.

A pretty white dress was embroidered with an image of a uterus on the front, the date 22.05.1978, the day the Italian law protecting legal abortion took effect, popped up on other pieces. There were also beautifully draped gowns, overtly feminine and pretty—a clear message that Michele isn’t here just to make women feel beautiful, he’ll do his part to get the message out that their rights need to be protected as well.

For Ricardo Tisci’s Burberry it’s all about the balance—streetwear, complete with leopard print bucket hats, suiting for the corporate ladies, those English tropes that the luxury fashion brand owns so well and a little glitz for an evening out. Lifestyle Brand is an overused term, but this season proves Burberry wants to be in your closet for every need and occasion.

Tory Burch

For Resort, Tory Burch skipped her past references on the Mediterranean and went a little closer to home—farm country in PA, where she spent summers growing up. A little bit of patchwork, a little embroidery, a fair isle sweater, wildflower florals, and a great shearling plaid coat were just some of the high notes to come out of the inspiration.

The luxury fashion collection celebrates New York City in ways both overt and subtle, with glimmering jackets that looked like the Art Deco Chrysler building, and others with graffiti-inspired New York City written out in the back. Pinstriped suits gave a nod to Wall Street from the era that was decidedly the heyday of that famed money strip—the 1980s. Bermuda shorts and corsets provided an unexpected silhouette, and peplum skirts are making a comeback. Trousers are belted, high waisted and slim at the ankle, paired with sequined black and silver cropped capes and velvet corset hybrid tops.

Chanel

Virginie Viard came out of the gate for her first luxury fashion collection with a bang. The looks honour the aesthetic of Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld while putting Viard’s stamp subtly throughout. We’re still getting to know her, but this Chanel girl has something very cool and bit mysterious about her—those all-over logos, those big bows, the mini skirts. There were the iconic black and white combo, but there was also plenty of colour; pink, green, blue, fuchsia, mauve and sky contrasted with brown, cobalt, and navy.

Prada came to NYC for the second year in a row and took on the classics through the lens of Miuccia Prada. Men’s shirting is transformed into dresses and shorts. Plaid blazers are oversized, socks are ankle length, and there’s a tennis sweater worth swooning over.

Christian Dior

For its Resort 2020 collection, the French luxury fashion house travelled to one of its most stunning locations yet: Marrakech. The Moroccan city not only served as host to Dior’s latest runway; its artists and culture helped inspire and create the luxury fashion collection. The theme was “Common Ground,” which it sought to achieve through a series of collaborations with several African artists, offering a fresh point-of-view from the storied French luxury fashion house. At a time when the fashion industry is increasingly being called out for cultural appropriation, it was a risky move—but Maria Grazia Chiuri aimed for appreciation, not appropriation.
