This spring is equipped for any eventuality: at times colourful, at times geometric, at times monotone, but never boring! Here are our five most important trends for this stunning season.
- 70s’ Revival
The 70s are back. With geometric patterns at Prada and Miu Miu that you used to find on blouses and wallpaper alike, in full-out hippy style at Roberto Cavalli, and in a nomadic ensemble at Etro.
- Yellow Fever
In addition to this year’s on-trend colour – pink – yellow fever is spreading like wildfire. From golden shades to toxic yellow at Valentino, plain at Mulberry, or as a glossy trench coat at Kiton: yellow is THE colour of the summer – and it puts you in a good mood, too.
Whether asymmetric at Louis Vuitton, jaunty at Saint Laurent, belly tops at Alexander McQueen or laissez-faire with jeans full of holes and short T-shirts at 7 for all mankind: this year we’ll be showing off a whole lot of skin that we normally keep well hidden.
- Oversized Office
Trouser suits never go out of style, but there have never been as many styles to choose from as there are this year. Oversized shoulders and man-sized jackets or close-fitting blazers with cut-outs are combined with knickerbockers, culottes, 7/8 trousers as at Brunello Cucinelli or drainpipes. One thing’s for sure: your work outfit will never be dreary again!
A wonderful alternative to a dress. Made of soft, high-end fabrics, it couldn’t be further removed from mechanic’s or parachutist’s overalls: it has become socially presentable and sexy. The trouser dresses by Bottega Veneta are eye-catching by day and night. And if you find a onesie too awkward, Emporio Armani has given you permission to cheat with their two-piece that masquerades as a jumpsuit.
