It's Resort season again!! It´s incredible how fast time goes by. For those who are not familiar with the words "Resort" or "Cruise", I´ll explain it to you. This "season" is targeted to the holidays. They usually go on sale around December, just in time for the trips people take after New Year. With that being said, you will understand why shows are located outside the Big 4 Fashion Cities. For example, last year Chanel presented in Cuba (quite revolutionary, but it´s understandable because politics were very involved) or Louis Vuitton showed in Brazil. This year we are are transported to Greece with Chanel (even though the show took place in Paris), to the desert with Dior and to Japan with Louis Vuitton. See bellow and decide where to travel next!
