After this cold winter, spring season is here! Days are longer and it’s not necessary to wear these coats that makes us sweat. We can stay on terraces without get freeze and be in front of the sea with an appetizing cold beer. It’s the perfect time to start with our summer clothes and for this reason we have to change our wardrobe. In this post we will make a review of what has been a must in the past Spring/Summer Collection 2016 and we’re going to compare each clothes with its characteristics, with more affordable clothes to our pockets. We hope you like it!
Firstly; we will start with the colour of the season; QUARTZ. This pale pink carries a fresh and calm sensation really suitable with spring. We can look it in all type of clothes. But for summer there is another colour that will be the new trend; WHITE. Wearing a total white look will be a must; it’s the perfect colour that joints with summer. We have seen it in Calvin Klein Collection, Balenciaga, Chanel or even Carolina Herrera and Dior catwalks. Almost each brand has its personal total white look; from the glasses to the shoes.
SILVER has been the new innovation; it can be wear in all type of clothes and materials. Shoes, trousers, skirts, and much more items. It’s a special colour that seems to be difficult to combine but it is not at all. Moschino, Isabel Marant and Loewe bets for it. Rainbow colours in clothes are another alternative.
Secondly; we have seen that night clothes have been inverted. Draper Dresses and pyjamas are the new daily clothes; we can wear them in all type of events and in all the possible hours. Balenciaga, Saint Laurentand Alexander Wang has made this possible. Mango and Zara have followed this new trend.
On the other hand, we can find that Field Poppies is the flower of the season. Dolce & Gabbana, Lela Rose and Oscar de la Renta have position for this alternative. There is also Tie Dye, a [new] dye technique used by Louis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli and Valentino. Photo Print and Print Mix are going to be suitable for this season. Moreover; vertical lines will be used to stylize our bodies. It has been used by Tommy Hilfilger or Salvatore Ferragamo.
Talking about the style of the clothes we have the Window effect; an alternative of the known cleavage established on the back. Saint Laurent, Valentino, Gucci or Alexander McQueen has replaced garments with transparencies to garments that lets us see the nipple; it’s called free nipple. It’s a different way to reclaim women liberty. Fashion without restrictions.
Trapezium collar is another type of clothes to let show the shoulders of women; a new erogenous part of the body.Givenchy, Jason Wu and Valentino are the promoters. Volume sleeves showed in Balmain and Fendi catwalks and deconstruct garments by Emilio Pucci or Louis Vuitton give a surrealist style to fashion.
Garments with nets, waves and bows are going to be a must. It’s impressible to wear clothes with this overlays to be on fashion. We can look it in all type of clothes; with all type of size in every material.
It will be also a must to join dresses with trousers or jeans; it gives a casual touch to the outfit. Isabel Marant, Giambatista Valli or Alexander McQueen has their look.
Finally, we have suede, jasper stitch, denim and organza. The most used textures in the catwalks from the brands. Suede was trendy on the past autumn/winter collection and will follow this spring/summer collection; denim articles (as we said in our past article) are going to be in all type of clothes and with all the possible modifications. Jasper stitch is the perfect material for periods between seasons; and organza gives a romantic style typical from Fendi, Alberta Ferreti or Erdem.
We can’t omit that in the past Autumn/Winter 2016 Fashion Week we have seen bloggers with some of the dresses of the Spring/Summer 2016 Collection. In the following presentation you will be able to watch it.
