Resort collections, or cruise collections as they are otherwise known, are the style aficionado's interseason treat. The sartorial version of a pick-me-up, a well-crafted resort show delivers holiday vibes, a nonchalant, out-of-office attitude, and an influx of outfit inspiration.

According to The Business of Fashion, they were originally intended to cater for the client "who needed a wardrobe for their mid-season travels to climates different to their own". Chance would be a fine thing…

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton's show had a fantastical aquatic element at its core

Presented at Isola Bella, one of the Borromean Islands situated on Northern Italy's Lake Maggiore, the Louis Vuitton show fused historic and contemporary aquatic motifs.

Carolina Herrera captured the spirit of Rio, presenting a show that was directly inspired by the vivacious city's "exuberant joy and sensuality". The brand's creative director Wes Gordon enlisted the help of an entirely Brazilian cast to help him bring his colourful vision to life.

Dior paid tribute to Mexico City

Maria Grazia Chiuri paid homage to Mexico City with Dior's resort show, championing billowy tunics, flowy wide-circle skirts and carefully ornamented nipped-in waists. Flora and fauna as well as delicate lacework served in the way of decoration.

Staged in Seoul's former palace, Gucci's cruise show marked Alessandro Michele's final contribution before Sabato De Sarno takes over. The collection had a distinctly sporty streetwear feel about it, featuring stiff neoprene turtlenecks, slouchy, low-slung waistbands and poppy tinted shades.
