WHAT WE LOVED FROM EACH OF THE MAJOR SS15 WEEKS
NEW YORK – LAYERS OF LACE
Monique Lhuillier during the Mercedes-Benz Spring Fashion Week in New York on Sept. 5, 2014.
New York Fashion week started with a blast of eye-catching laces and whimsical silhouettes patterns and cinched-waist dresses took center stage. We loved the use of lace and layering prevalent in many of the shows including another favorite Marchesa. Marchesa took our love for lace to the next level by adding fringe on patterned lace.
LONDON – RETRO YOUTH
Topshop Unique Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – London Fashion Week
Wearable faded glamor seems to be the inspiration behind the collection presented at London Fashion Week. Its retro meets comfort an the motto behind Emma Farrow and Kate Phelan’s design is simply living for the weekend. We love the overlayed fabrics ad metalic deisgns that kept the line fun and yourthful.
MILAN – BOLD CULTURAL INSPIRATION
Dolce & Gabbana Milan Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 Womenswear
Dolce & Gabbana brilliantly closed out their show with a stampede of models evervecent of a stampede of bulls. There collection inspired by Spain’s influence on Sicily featured heavy embroidery and crisp white shirts. We love the simplistic hair and the dark lips.
PARIS – LUSH COLORS AND POWERFUL FABRICS
Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – Paris Fashion Week
Colors, textures, layers. Dries Van Noten used lush royal colors in bold ways to capture wearable chic style. Layering – again prevalent. What we loved was his use of sating in bot skirts and pants. The shine played of the eccentric fabric designs to give a boho whimsical vibe. Van Noten’s overall show was really pulled together with his eclectic grass inspired runway carpet and lighting option.
