Cruise 2016: Rainbow Stripes

Resort’s punched-up hues in colour blocks will make you smile today


We suspect that Rainbow Brite was on the secret Pinterest boards of designers this Cruise 2016 season. Stripes in every shade of the rainbow popped up in the collections of Chanel to J.W. Anderson, and they were literally sewn on in the form of a rainbow at Red Valentino. One of the loveliest results turned out on Sonia Rykiel’s techni-colour jacket and a shift dress — that would have made Joseph’s dreamcoat jealous — while Bottega Veneta’s cover-up looked like it was inspired by a Mondrian painting.
