COLOUR was all over the catwalk this season. Bright vibrant head to toe hues, colour blocking in bold primary colours and painted prints in a rainbow of technicolor most memorable at Chanel.
SHEER fabrics dominated the shows. Featherlight fabrics were used to conceal and reveal in all colours of the spectrum; at Burberry Prorsum in candy cane lace, at Giambattista black tulle and Christopher Kane neon and lace.
The METALLIC trend stays with us from fall. But not just the classic silver and gold as seen at Altuzarra and Saint Laurent but Quality Street colours of purple, green and pink, see Lanvin for Alber Elbaz’s molten moment.
FLORAL was ever present for the summer season. Not just the pretty florals which were very pretty at Nina Ricci and Alberta Ferretti but the embroidered florals at Dolce & Gabbana, the techno florals at Mark Katrantzou and the photosynthesis florals at Christopher Kane.
The GLOBAL TRAVELLER was a big trend for this season. Think tribal not boho, heavy textures and a lot of fringing. See Valentino for the collection that did it best.
EMBELLISHMENT was all over the catwalk for both day and night. Casual sporty separates were heavily embellished at Marni, at Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs sequins were the choice for evening wear.
