The jacket skirt pairing seems to be the leitmotif at Resort 2017 seen at Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Sonia Rykiel and Bottega Veneta. Designers across the board presented them in mismatched tweed and luscious jacquard. Here’s the lowdown on some key trends which emerged…

Focus: Che Guevara
Highlight: The iconic Che Guevara beret was the talking point which was given a luxed-up shiummery treatment complete with camellias – the Chanel insignia. Models walked in flip-flops, brogues and slides wearing black jackets with wide-legged cuffed trousers. ’50s car prints were revived seen on skirts, swimsuits and off-shoulder tops.

Focus: Outerwear and tailoring  
Highlight: Bold solid colours – yellow, red and green gained focus appearing on skirt suit combs, trench coats and top coats. The line stood out thanks to stripes, pastel colour blocking, long silk jersey dresses and creamy lambskin coats. Most of the looks were completed by tortoise shell wayfarers and sling bags.
