INTO THE WILD!
Designers indulged their primal instincts far beyond fall’s basic leopard prints.
Animal shapes, jungle themes, and feathered skirts proved that fashion’s animal magnetism is still going strong.
Traditional Eastern influences abounded this spring. Runways from Haider Ackermann to Dries Van Noten to
Reed Krakoff showed elongated tunics and vests paired with loose, cropped pants, Chinese and Japanese prints, and kimono-style wrapping.
BE SEEN IN BLUE JEAN!
Chambray, denim’s lighter cousin, had a strong showing on spring runways. Designers from Celine to Thakoon showed this relaxed,
true-blue fabric, usually reserved for California cool girls, in tailored suits, dresses, or scrublike silhouettes
BOLD COLOR BLOCKING:
Patterns took a cue from Rubik’s Cube this season, with strong strokes of bubble-gum brights and
rich jewel tones creating bold color blocking on shifts, dresses, and tunics.
THE GRACE OF LACE!
Lace was everywhere, but the message was more daring than “doily.” Full-body lace in sophisticated,
feminine silhouettes is fresher than anything you’d find in Grandma’s trousseau.
Designers played peekaboo this spring by layering transparent separates over solid underpinnings, with varying levels of modesty.
DOWN TO BUSINESS
Modern, monochromatic takes on men’s suiting were very visible this season,
but classic proportions were abandoned in favor of futuristic cuts at Gareth Pugh, dress suits at Margiela, and fluid satin shapes at Bottega Veneta.
