S/S ’16 Trend Round Up – Part 1

trendtop1

Phew, what an exhausting month. Granted I only sat on my couch and stared at countless numbers of images and hundreds of videos and waited patiently for live streams to start, but it still was exhausting. Now that we have an idea of what we’re going to see in stores come spring, I can tell you some of the trends that you’re going to want to keep an eye out for.

The Slip Dress

Givenchy, Calvin Klein Collection, & Chloe

Right off the back there was no escaping this one. It was one of those trends that makes you curious to know if every major fashion designer in the world is in a giant group text going ‘Lets all do slip dresses this season!’. While I’m 99% sure that’s not the case, I can’t help but wonder. Be prepared to see this dress everywhere. Don’t try to avoid it because you’re not going too. Instead, embrace its versatility and buy it in every color.

A New Take on Tie Dye

Chloe, Louis Vuitton, & Altuzarra

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a huge fan of tie dye. However, these reinterpretations of the DIY classic are pretty enough to make me think twice. The Chloe dress is absolutely dreamy and I’m half tempted to go out a buy a thrift leather jacket and spray paint it Louis Vuitton style.

Ruffles

Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, & Gucci

They’re fun, they’re frilly, they’re all together super girly, and we can’t get enough of them. You’ll find them on the hems of skirts and dresses, and even wrapped around your neck on a chintzy little collar. Go ahead, go crazy.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of the Spring Summer Trends!

Versace SS16

The Versace woman is off to war. She’s an animal, a primal monster of sorts. She’s full of confidence, on both the inside and out. Donatella Versace made that very clear on her runway today. The opening look featured a leggy Raquel Zimmermann in an olive green coat dress kept shut with a striped webbed belt, balancing atop military-esque platform booties. The look was rough and hard and the impeccable tailoring was nothing short of fierce and sexy.

The rest of the collection wasn’t shy of that caliber either. There were boxy uniform style coats and jackets overtop barely there bandeau tops and short shorts. Wide legged pants made an appearance, made out of camo-jaguar silks with matching jackets and pullovers. The collection even had flat slide shoes and sandals (who knew Donatella even knew such a shoe existed!). For those who still seek out the over-the-top sexy Versace we’re so accustomed too, there were barely there silk and lace dresses, with slits well above the thigh to fulfill your need.

I’ll admit it though, I’m not a huge fan of camouflage prints on clothing, especially of such a high fashion show, but what I saw today was almost refreshing to see them used in such a way. They played with the color pallet, playing with bright neon purples, lime greens, and muted yellows. This collection should help sales as well, as many of the pieces of the collection seemed appropriate for every day use. I love a super sexy body hugging dress as much as the next person, but you find your true customer base with the wide-legged pants and blazers. Whatever the inspiration was that brought Donatella to this collection (probably one of the best of her career), we applaud her.
