Spring is here and for the occasion, I selected all the cool trends from the S/S 2017 runways. All of them which will be unavoidable in the upcoming months. Pick one or more if you want, luckily one of them don’t really exclude the other and enjoy! 🙂
1, The ’80s
Power suits and broad shoulders but with a more minimalistic way with less details and less vivid colours. It’s about empowering women these times when seemingly(?) we got into shunt.
Louis Vuitton, Celine, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Mulberry, Jil Sander
2, Statement sleeves and shoulders
Speaking about the 80s and empowering women. The most characteristic part is the sleeves and shoulders. It can be puffer sleeves or big shoulder pads, or even off the shoulders, the emphasis is on the upper part of the body.
Ellery, Stella McCartney, Erdem, Jacquemus, JW Anderson, Balenciaga
3, Feminine dresses
This is how women like it. Not overly sexy, short and tight or tacky, but refined, comfy, with a lot of space to breath, and with a lot of fabrics, ruffles and asymmetric hemlines to play with.
Valentino, Marni, Mulberry, Tibi, Proenza Schouler, Erdem
4, Ruched details
Well, this the continuation of the previous one, but it was so over-presented on the runways, it deserved it’s on category. Plus it can be presented on shirts, trousers or anything what you prefer. And don’t forget about drawstrings either, the longer and more exposed is the better.
Ellery, Stella McCartney, Loewe, Marni, Jacquemus, JW Anderson
The colour of the season is undoubtedly red as it represents everything we need to see; love, passion, power, danger. Don’t be afraid of wearing it head to toe, but a pop of red is a winning detail too.
Ellery, Off-White, Creatures of Comfort, Celine, Christian Dior, Mulberry
The girlier, more innocent and playful side of feminine.
Gucci, Rosie Assoulin, Valentino, JW Anderson, Ellery, Balenciaga
7, Neutral naturals
Or if red is not your colour, then opt for something neutral. It can be beige, khaki, cream, it doesn’t matter until it’s lightweight and something organic. Cotton and linen are the best.
Stella McCartney, Loewe, Marni, Jil Sander, Hellessy, Creatures of Comfort
Actually stripes are never not trendy, but they are trendier now than usual. I guess. Checks are reserved to fall/winter anyway.
Off-White, Jacquemus, Jil Sander, Mulberry, Rosie Assoulin, Victoria Beckham
9, Wallpaper florals
Because if it’s S/S then flowers, groundbreaking I know, but I don’t make the rules, and dark, wallpaper floral print feels kinda fresh, doesn’t it?
Balenciaga, Chloe, Marni, Erdem, Tibi, Rag & Bones
10, Corsets, bustiers, bralets
There is a debate, whether a corset could be feminist or on the contrary. I think there is a difference between corsets and bustiers. The goal is not to force all breath out or having a waist size which is converge to our neck circumference. Plus ain’t man could force me in no suffocating, deforming corsets. No way, the idea is to have an armour and to be a modern warrior, an amazon if you will. Who could be more feminist than an amazon?
Celine, Christian Dior, Tome, Loewe, Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth & James
Which one is your favourite?
