Trendstop: Key Fashion Theme Trend SS 2015
Engineers of Elegance
Pale mint green is infused with a pearlescent cast to create the essential Spring/Summer shade Eucalyptus. Lightweight fabrics lend themselves to baggy pants or sheer layers for a laidback modern feel. Textural qualities add depth to sportive handbags, while clean white contrasts enhance the forward feel on decorative sweaters. Pair this colour with neutral casts of grey, black and white for a directional yet wearable look.
Materials: Crisp Cotton
Woven cottons are treated with crisp qualities, resulting in a stiff fabric that holds its shape in garment form. Architectural silhouettes are key, from wrap dresses resembling origami constructions to casual staples like T-shirts that take on a contemporary must-have appeal. Layering Crisp Cotton garments makes for a striking S/S15 look.
Styling: Sculpted Layering
Layering is inspired by sculpture and Oriental design, offering intriguing ways to approach shape and styling this spring. Masculine tailoring teams deconstructed coats with voluminous bottoms, while tactile waistcoats appear alongside crisp embossed pieces. More feminine looks emerge with a focus on dresses, including draped asymmetric lengths or chic shifts with overlapping sheer panels.
