A wardrobe fit for “the effortlessly chic French woman” was what Vuitton women’s creative director Julie de Libran imagined for resort. Falling well within Vuitton’s vocabulary, the broad theme allowed her to work the collection in several directions, with looks suited to both warm and cold climates; bohemian and tailored; maritime and citified. De Libran chose the ease of a tailored chambray shirt and flared, fringed midlength denim skirt to introduce a classic blue-and-white nautical range. In it were terrific tweeds, a drop-waist chambray sundress with low-cut sides and a mink Breton-stripe top. Next came Gallic nonchalance, an eclectic mix that included a faded floral dress paired with an incredible yellow double-faced cashmere coat that tied like a robe. There were micro floral jacquards on boxy tops and miniskirts — a casual alternative to the traditional suit — and a floor-length dress in a patchwork dress that referenced the shoe of the season: a luxe clog in a pastiche of exotic skins. Each group was beautifully designed via a sophisticated eye, while, according to de Libran, serving resort’s big-picture purpose of “dressing women all over the world and keeping everybody happy.”
