Make room in your closet – there’s a whole lot to love this season!
Shades of White
If you’re planning to get married this year, or simply love the look of a crisp summer whites, you’re in luck. White dresses abound! From Erdem’s whimsical ruffles and Prabal Gurung’s thick poplins to Rodarte’s lace-trimmed slips and Molly Goddard’s gauzy confections, there’s a LWD (little white dress) to fall for in every silhouette.
Arts & Crafts
Celebrating the movement towards slower, more artisanal-driven fashion, designers are showing pieces highlighting homespun techniques. Cue the quilting, embroidery and tassels. Need proof? Look no further than Chloe’s collection, where designer Gabriella Hearst makes vacation dressing stylish for exotic locales and city dwellers alike.
Skin Is In
Seductive silhouettes revealing snippets of skin were rampant on the runways. Bra tops beneath blazers, triangle tops teamed with high-waisted skirts, creative cutouts and midriff baring mini skirts all offered the option to play peekaboo.
Columns of Colour
It’s impossible to ignore the Bottega Veneta effect on fashion. Case in point: the return to megawatt doses of near-neon colours. The brand’s love affair with Kermit-green continues to make waves, as do hot pink, juicy orange and anything-but-mellow yellow. Try dipping a toe in the trend with a brightly coloured bag or shoe.
The most exciting part about following fashion is that there is always something new to try.
