A little bit of imagination…
For a second, imagine you were rich. Really rich, so rich you didn’t have to work. (Stick with it… I know youre probably at your desk now, wishing you didn’t have to be). Now think what you’d be doing in the summertime. Travelling of course! There would probably be a yacht involved, late night parties with your celebrity friends, plus the obligatory sand and sea… in fact you’d probably cruise all around the Mediterranean party islands P.Diddy style.
Now I know what you’re thinking… what would I wear? Well, no need to worry, those designers have got you all covered. You’d be wearing Cruise 2010 silly! For those of you whose reality does not include yachting and partying around the Mediterranean, Cruise (or Resort as our friends over the pond like to call it) is what comes in between the Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter collections. Traditionally, it was meant for the more wealthy customer who needed a wardrobe suitable for vacationing around the world. These days, designers are taking Cruise much more seriously these days as they get that the real fashionistas use these pieces to transition from Summer to Autumn whilst still being bang on trend. Enter Erin Fetherston Cruise 2010.
Erin’s Cruise collection reads like the perfect capsule summer wardrobe. Subtle nudes, shocking reds and a mix of girly dresses and structured tailoring that might make you consider taking a cruise around the Mediterranean to justify purchasing.
