1. SLEEPING BEAUTY
The versatility of bedroom attire was explored this spring at Alexander Wang with pajama shirts thrown cavalierly over work wear pants, at Calvin Klein with their deconstructed slip dress and yet again at Givenchy where suits were paired with decadent camisoles. And for the most part pulled together just-rolled out-of-bed look, Thakoon has you (un)covered with their robe coats and sac shorts.
2. SHOULDER RESPONSIBILITY
From dainty straps at Prabal Gurung, to shoulder cutouts at Peter Pilotto, then halter necklines at Proenza Schouler and off the shoulders at Chloé, it’s safe to say that bare shoulders are a big thing this season. Summer is about showing some skin and this trend certainly does not compromise that. Closing the chapter on backless dresses and high slit skirts may not be so hard after all.
3. VICTORIAN SECRET
Victorian inspired fashion was everywhere this season. Erdem took a trip to the prairies with their floral chiffon gowns and Emilia Wickstead reminded us of a simpler time with her pale colors and puffed sleeves. Sarah Burton showed us her softer side with the prettiest tiered micro ruffles and high neck dresses at Alexander McQueen and Zimmerman takes the 1800’s into modern day with their lattice skirts and lace sleeves. This trend is just too romantic not to romp around in.
4. SILVER WEAR
Every summer we see a return to high shine fabrics but this season, designers got a little more innovative with the trend. At Loewe, clothing was covered in shards of mirror for the ultimate reflectiveness. Louis Vuitton celebrated the digital age with ruched foil mini-dresses and metal embroidered skirts. Isabel Marant incorporated sequins and Lurex throughout her collection and that Mylar-like jumpsuit at Lacoste? Out of this world.
