As one fashion week door closes, another opens *hint LFW hint*… But before we eagerly venture into yet another fashion week (which I’m rather excited about) let’s recap from the past week’s events that have flooded our Instagram with catwalk after catwalk.
For S/S16 we’ll be expecting shop windows filled with blossoming gowns, peachy tones and clean-cut tailoring. To give you more of an idea what I’m babbling on about, here are a few of my favourite lines…
Clean-cut, long bell sleeves and simple nautical and nude shades.
2. Hervé Léger
Gone are the days of the iconic banage dress, say hello to boot leg jump suits and two-pieces cut for your curves. All about bell sleeves, geometric patterns and a few cut outs round the waist, chest and shoulders.
3. Idan Cohen
According to Idan, this spring/summer is time to flaunt those gazelle-like legs, with shades of peach and turquoise that perfectly match your, fake or real, bronze tan. If you wanna stand out a next years pool party or drinks at a roof top, Cohen is the way.
My eyes are on that pink metallic biker jacket. For the more casual side of things, pick anything from her collection and you’ll be looking chic on the streets in comfort AND style.
5. Lela Rose
Lela mixes elegance from a wedding dress with a modern twist, along with origami flowers smothering the floor-length growns. A shirt collar for a ball gown? It works and gives structure.
6. Mara Hoffman
Imagine a hippy’s dream when it comes to more modern and classy clothing, no harem pants but still loose pieces with a smart twist, keeping it cool, classy and comfortable.
I believe Lhuiller thinks of a long flowing dress as a blank canvas, she subtely plays with different ways of expressing detailing, but always keeps colour dominating the whole piece.
Fresh colours and flowing material matched with the layering of sheer make for perfect wear during the more chilly spring months.
Stepping out of his comfort zone, when summer 2016 comes around, watchout for those crochet, boldly coloured bikinis and one pieces. Rastafarian theme is on.
Hope this gave you a peak into next spring/summer’s trends, which will hopefully come round some time soon…
