Resort collections have been going from strength to strength in recent years. The presentation of resort ranges from fashion houses like Dior, Louis Vuitton and Gucci in fabulously exotic locales have become some of the biggest dates in the fashion calendar, and the collections themselves, designed to "fill in the gaps" between seasons, are now in store longer, more wearable and more accessible.

Get excited for the warmer months as we round up the top trends from resort, starting with the Dior's incredible showing at the French Riviera's Bubble Palace (the seaside residence of Pierre Cardin), which was a key inspiration.

Think texture, signature patterns and prints, and above all, bold colour! While hothouse blooms took centre stage at Stella McCartney and Erdem, pink was the colour of the season, ranging from pretty and delicate blush hues to the vivid hot pink shades that featured on standout rainbow-bright dresses from J.W. Anderson. Accessible and summer-ready, there's something for everyone in our best of Resort roundup!
