Bring back the old fashion drawing board.
Welcome back to the times where the monotone fashion lines left the designers minds to give place to something new and fresh. The exaggerated lines, the neon spreading colour lights everywhere together with the metallic effects. Never forgetting the 1970s fevers coming out from the box.
It’s a revive of earlier styles and some forgotten trends that took a great place in their time and once again taking a big major place on fashion industory this Spring and Summer.
Take a look…

At the top of the list, the trend of the season is pink, as candypink, baby pink, deep cherry and raspberry provide a sweet new way to see fashion through rose-tinted glasses.

From criss-stripes to in-your-face colour, fashion has gone graphic for summer 2017. Think vibrant, geometric prints, as spotted on the knitwear at Proenza Shouler, teh poppy pleats at Chloé and the Sonia Rykiel poncho.
