Hermes was the latest to have announced that it will no longer be putting on its Resort 2021 show in London on April 28. This follows decisions by other fashion houses to do the same.
Max Mara cancelled its show planned for May 25 in Saint Petersburg. Prada, Gucci, Giorgio Armani and Versace have also done the same for their events, originally scheduled to take place at various locations across the globe.
Others like Dior and Chanel however, have not made any announcements regarding their runway shows for the season. Chanel’s is slotted for May 7 in Capri, while Dior’s is set to take place in Lecce on May 9 – both in Italy.
The Resort (also know as Cruise) collection straddles the fashion seasons of Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer. It is aimed at at customers who have finished buying their cold weather wardrobes and are looking ahead to vacations in warmer climes.
During the recent Autumn/Winter 2020 fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris, which took place in February and this month, many shows went on as scheduled.
Some of the local fashion weeks have taken the steps to cancel though. Tokyo Fashion Week, which was scheduled to run from March 16 through 21, will now no longer go ahead.
