Start the year off well! Be passionate, go bananas! That or something similar appears to be the motto for 2017. Passionately immerse yourself in life, combat gloom with gaudy colours and simply give things a go. Those are the pearls of wisdom coming from the experimental designers who have devoted their talents to reviving the carefree essence of the ’80s and ’90s.
Unconventional, colourful and surprising combinations along with materials and cuts torn from their context are the order of the day – no, the year: beach and seaside fashion is no longer restricted to coastal resorts. Miu Miu, Brunello Cucinelli and 7 for all mankind lead the way.
They are bright, they clash, and they are most popular in candy colours. Thick or thin soled, embellished with rhinestones or embroidered with roses, it doesn’t matter – as long as they are eye-catching and made of offbeat materials like denim, satin or nappa leather. A work of design art for your feet, a statement for eternity: these shoes are guaranteed never to be out of fashion.
Ruches and stripes
Instead of stars and stripes. This summer, proof that ruches, stripes and fringes are an ideal match comes from Louis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli and Mulberry. Asymmetrical cut-outs, eighties romance and exaggerated shoulders take the girly out of romance and transform it into a declaration of real girl power.
