The world we live in today is continuously moving faster and faster at a pace that is, well, rapid. News is absorbed in 140 characters or less, credit cards are contactless, and coffee is pre-ordered to avoid those ~unbearable~ cafe lines. Even the once-mind-boggling Amazon Two Day Delivery is being challenged by online luxury shops like Farfetch, which now offers same-day delivery in several major cities.
Following this ethos, it might seem like the luxury fashion industry is lagging behind. The vast majority of fashion houses have not experimented with, let alone converted to, the “See Now, Buy Now” practice for runway collections. Having to wait six months for what’s à la mode seems a little…outmoded.
Luckily, if you’re both of this school of thought and were an avid follower of this summer’s Cruise and Resort shows, we can be of particular use. Our team here at Modafirma has taken some of the best Vogue-approved trends from Cruise and Resort 2019 and combed through our site to find pieces that emulate them, that you can buy now. Our designers are dedicated to producing sustainably/ethically made clothing, making slow fashion you can get fast.
According to Vogue, full coverage is in. However, modesty absolutely does not have to be boring, and designers like Max Mara, Gabriela Hearst, and Thornton Bregazzi have made sure of it. Make a statement from head-to-toe with any of our all over looks like this draped floral maxi dress, muted checked co-ord set, and geometric print jumpsuit (which also exists as a dress, blouse, and pants!)
Highs and Lows
Much like the weather, Vogue’s second trend for Resort ’19 exhibits some dramatic contrasts. Whether you’re opting for bold colours and prints like Rochas or cozy monochrome neutrals like Jil Sander, Modafirma’s wide selection of coats and shorts will create the perfectly dramatic silhouette.
Suited For Romance
As the age-old saying goes, opposites attract. So much is true of Vogue’s third Resort ’19 trend “Soft Suiting”. As exhibited here by Chloé, Bottega Veneta, and Chalayan, there are no rules. Virtually any shape blazer and dress can find harmony in each other. Toss out your styling preconceptions with this trend and choose your favourites from our pages and pages of jackets and dresses!
My Little Surfer Girl
🎵Do you love me, do you, Surfer Girl?🎵 Take a cue from The Beach Boys with Vogue trend #4, surfer chic. As seen here by Prabal, Koché. and Paco Rabanne, this trend is not your typical relaxed summer fashion. What is usually denoted by muted colours, knits, and crochets has been replaced with sporty separates in playful hues. Achieve effortless cool and fun with pieces like our emerald silk short shorts or leopard print mock neck top.
Spring Into The Sixties
An absolutely quintessential era of fashion history, Mod is back. This area is usually populated by designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Emilio Pucci, so seeing it on the three pictured here says it’s spreading and sure to be all over the place in the next year. Accent your look with Modafirma blouses, options 2 and 3, or go for a full look like dresses 1, 4, and 5. Will we be seeing painted-on Twiggy lashes in the near future, too? Only time will tell!
