TRENDS – SPRING/SUMMER 2017

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…

Shocking Pink

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.

Oversized Shoulders

Square shoulders were particularly present this season, an exercise in style seen on strict, exaggerated suit jackets in a quest to create new forms of elegance and movement.

Sports Parkas

Urban sports silhouettes were prevalent at Versace, Joseph and Stella McCartney, with dynamic lines and big volume on nylon parkas and parachute pleats, with street accents and plenty of movement.

Flower Power

Florals are no suprise for spring, but next season brings blossom prints up to date in all-over Seventies style, flirting a little with the kitsch.

Arty Pop 

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.

Jumpsuits All Day 

Much more than a trend, the jumpsuit is now a seasonal staple that tops editors’ wishlists as an easy piece for summer every year. Uptown girl or fashion boilersuit, choose from evening glamour and daytime cool.

Leggings Are Back

Fashion reinvented sportwear basics as ready-to-wear, this season more than ever. Leggings made for super slim silhouettes on teh runway, in spandex with integrated shoes at Balenciaga, or velvet at Y/Project and ‘caviar’ lace at Louis Vuitton.

The 1970s Sleeveless Sweater

The revival of a key 1970s piece, that patterned sleeveless sweater your grandpa once had is back, tapping into the ugly-beautiful trend and trending a delicate line between good and bad taste. How to elevate the kitsch to the ranks of the cool.
