Spring has sprung, the catwalks have spoken, the trends that we’ll be coveting for the new season are in and you can shop them all here at The Luxury Closet…
This season, set sail in red, white, blue and stripes – it’s that easy! The nautical theme and cruise collections seem to go hand-in-hand with one another, so it comes as no surprise that sailor-esque ensembles were carried over to the spring shows. Spotted left, right and centre, some took a very literal approach to the trend, with the likes of Preen and Topshop Unique introducing sailor stripes into their garments, whereas Fendi and Jonathon Saunders took a more subtle route, showcasing fisherman and toggle separates, as well as ocean blue and mesh net detailing into their collections.
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
Safari, jungle, travel, utility chic – whatever you want to call it, this season, the SS15 catwalks transported us to a tropical paradise. Khaki green and sandy tan shades, bold leafy prints and the brightest of accessories are enjoying the spotlight at the moment. Offering us crisp sun dresses John Galliano and Erdem style, or casual spring jackets adorned with nipped in waists for a feminine touch, a la Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs, this is one sartorial trek we can definitely get on board with!
“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking!” – we hear you, Miranda Priestly! Whilst the famed catty quote from fashion film fave, The Devil Wears Prada, may just be getting at something, this trend simply makes the catwalks a prettier place. Every year designers reimagine the inevitable trend, and this season Altuzarra, Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors teach us to make them big, bold and beautiful. And for the demure? Alexander McQueen and Matthew William are your port of call.
If the SS15 catwalks are anything to go by, it seems white is the new black! From elegant wisps of floaty fabrics to power dressing in a cool suit, it’s time to embrace the colour – or lack there of – of the season. Whether it’s romantic lace work, as seen at Valentino, or Alexander Wang, Jill Stuart-style sports luxe separates, adopt this seasons hottest trend for the ultimate in sartorial success.
Dust off your lava lamps, folks, for the 70’s redux is in full psychedelic swing. The fashion industry has the unique capability of looking backwards whilst looking forwards at the same time, with the likes of Emilio Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo and Henry Holland going retro for spring. Whether you’re channeling your inner flower child, or opting for disco inferno, this season think modern revivals of over-sized sunnies, suede, platforms, flares, fringing and fluid maxi dresses.
