The trench coat, like a motorcycle jacket or a pair of jeans, is one of those basics that can be endlessly reinvented while still maintaining its design integrity. For next Resort, newness comes from sleeveless versions, color or fabric-blocking, cape-like slits for arms or puff-shouldered sleeves with channel-elastic cuffs. Fabrics include rustic linens, smooth cottons, lightweight corduroy and flat-quilted nylon. Novel touches can be as splashy as floral-appliquéd shoulders or as subtle as a single red button.

Last fall was all about blue velvet, but for next season the plush, lustrous fabric warms up in sumptuous shades of peach, berry, deep ochre, lush olive and creamy ecru. The velvet itself can be woven or knit, smooth or crushed. Day-glo drawstrings or contrast piping give head-to-toe velvet ensembles a sporty edge.


Statement coats rule the runways this season. In both Pre-Fall and Fall collections, the roomy outerwear piece emerges as a key item for both men and women. Long, almost-ankle lengths emphasize X-large proportions, but there are also knee-skimming versions in boxy silhouettes. Bright colors, abstract prints or chunky corduroys give it a novel, contemporary feel; dark neutrals or menswear tweeds make it a timeless classic. A chunky scarf, sturdy belt and low-heeled or flat footwear finish the look.

Activewear meets city chic in the Pre-Fall collections. Sporty styles mix with skirts and sleek footwear to create a work-or-weekend ensemble. Comfort is no longer at the heart of the activewear movement. Now, it’s about adding bomber jackets to a romantic look or replacing track bottoms with a pencil skirt. The unexpected combination of the two styles produces a versatile balance of casual and polished.
