Fashion is having fun juxtaposing shades to arresting affect. Try Simon Miller’s jade and cobalt blue; Rosetta Getty’s rainbow patterned off the shoulder top and Calvin Klein’s large green and black block graphic effects. The vivid combinations give clothes a new energy.
Just when it felt like denim was done, it bounces back in a new guise looking as fresh as a debutante. This Spring, it’s about head to toe denim fashioned with asymmetric cuts and decorated with artisan effects. Go to Monse for love worn denim cuts into swishy hem skirts and bateau neckline tops and check out Stella McCartney for paper bag waist trousers and trucker shirts in real indigo.
Make Mine A Milkshake
Call it chromatic karma - there’s a healthy new obsession with milkshake colour that is casting a whole new light on Spring. The way to wear it is head to toe in gradating shades of the same tone. Find sugar pink tones at Cédric Charlier, macaron yellows at Calvin Klein and sherbet orange at Marni. Both eyes and taste buds will be delighted without having to open the fridge.
Back on Track
Track pants are proving an evergreen in style. Why? They can be slouchy, cool and smart and that chameleon quality feels so appealing right now. Alexander McQueen, P.E. Nation and 3.1 Phillip Lim are just a few of the brands that are playing ball with the trend with styles spanning slim to wide and flared. Pair them with just about everything from matching track tops or slipped under floral tea dresses, with pool slides or sharp heels.
Think of plaids and stripes as the new uniform; you can join Altuzarra’s team in bold red and black diagonals, sign up to Balenciaga’s tribe in lumberjack checks or become part of the Tibi posse in mismatched horizontal stripes. There are also a whole variety of rainbows and mini checks in between. In these bold graphics, you can be sure to find like-minded friends.
