Stripes, argyles, contrast pop and animal prints for Resort 2020 work with contemporary popular colors. Traditional handmade embellishments and classic patterns are deconstructed and re-created. This report introduces three brands: Victor Glemaud, Michael Kors and The Elder Statesman.
Glemaud drew inspiration from Grace Jones for Resort 2020. Glemaud’s clear and precise prints improve form. The newly released pen skirt with ruffles and white diagonal lines accentuate feminine form. The rhythmic black long dress with argyles on the front features knitwear looks. The knitted piece with leopard print and zebra print adds interest.
Glemaud is good at using bright colors and classic elements to form impressive patterns. Horizontal and vertical stripes in different color livens up styles. Evolved from stripes, argyles are as impressive.
Saturated colors, delicate arrangements, amplified color block-style argyles, and argyle lines for dissecting are all creative and novel.
Colors and deconstructed and redesigned patterns are key for Resort 2020. Animal prints were seen in A/W 19/20, and they stood out particularly in ready-to-wear garments.
With the modern urban vibe and vacation inspiration, MICHAEL KORS is famous for its Manhattan aesthetic. Minimalism and cosy fabrics are key. Lots of argyles are featured in S/S 2020 knitwear, and hot fix is also employed.
Argyles, stripes and checks in bright colors make a breakthrough. Metallic rhinestones decorating argyles are handsome and neat.
We can see hot fix in knitwear, suits, overcoats and even dresses.
Michael Kors uses lots of ruffles on overcoats. The overcoat with a feminist silhouette is decorated with delicate ruffles. Ruffles can be expanded to knitwear.
Greg Chait founded The Elder Statesman in 2007. Soft and skin-friendly garments accentuate liberalism. Its sweaters, cardigans and small accessories are modern and natural-looking.
Melange yarns feel folkloric. The Elder Statesman’s application of melange yarns is youthful, vibrant and modern. In Trend column, the reports about melange yarns analyze the applications of melange yarns.
Patterns are key for The Elder Statesman’s knitwear. The interesting sun, animals and bright colors are combined to show youthfulness and vibrancy.
Review: In S/S 2019, The Elder Statesman released a series of tie-dyed knitted pieces. Tie-dye is the essential technique for A/W 19/20, which was a direction on ready-to-wear garments. Tie-dye still plays an important role for S/S 2020.
