The temperature is rising, finally, which means only one thing: it’s time for a reshuffle! And no, it’s not only UK PM’s duty to make a reshuffle, it’s up to us to do our stylish version, no?!
Since that the S/S 2015 fashion weeks were months ago (yes, it seems a lightyear ago since that A/W 2015-2016 is still pretty fresh), we could use a little fashion update to be efficiently prepped for this beautiful sunny days. Oh it was all so structurally colourful, denim, floral, stripy and white!
One thing that is just purely impossible to forget and neglect were those tulle skirts Christopher Bailey created for Burberry. The colours, the designs and the accessories just screamed freedom everywhere! And not only Bailey proved he can surprise us a bit, he also proved he knows how to juice up old-school immortal Burberry designs, with trench coats. Bailey used a lot of variations of lavender, and he wasn’t the only one. We’ve seen lots of violet/lilac tones in Balenciaga, Missoni and even DSquared.
Ah, the unforgettable denim, the “never gets out of style” denim… Yes, it surely doesn’t, but I doubt anyone expected this wave! From the classic cuts, to dresses, skirts, tops and jumpsuits, we are all going head-to-toe in jeans apparently. Many designers played with denim and other materials. There were crystals at Dolce & Gabbana, shearling at Burberry, leather at Michael Kors and decoratively-extended denim at Alberta Ferretti.
There are always floral motifs on catwalks, so this year was no different. They were everywhere: Prada, Valentino (no news there), Carven, House of Holland and Miu Miu. The finest examples, I will scarily dare to say, were beautiful simplicity at Michael Kors and the colours and complexity of Chanel Ready-to-Wear pieces. However, without a doubt, the peak was hit on Chanel Haute Couture S/S 2015. It’s haunting!
Summer and stripes – nothing new in that area you might think. Maybe it is just the case how far would you be willing to go with it. Some more classical examples can be found at Emporio Armani, DKNY, Vivienne Westwood and Tommy Hilfiger. Some more inspiring items came through Givenchy and Louis Vuitton.
And last (but surely not the least) trend to reminisce from the catwalk and abuse in presence is “all white”. Pure, slick and effective (and probably the easiest one to follow) white trend can change your whole look. There were some beautiful pieces on the S/S 2015 catwalk, from Roberto Cavalli, Erdem and Nina Ricci, to Oscar de la Renta. Oh yes, I will be lusting over those Valentino pants.
Ok, now you’re all prepped. Mish-mash as much as possible. Off you go shopping!
