As 2016 comes to an end , the year 2017 has some ‘Head turning’ trends awaiting with the worlds most renowned designers showing their Ready-to-Wear collection by getting inspired from the different Eras in fashion there was a sense of nostalgia that managed to leave everyone in Awe.
Have a look at the seasons line up and get inspired. We have picked Alexander Wang, Paul Smith, Gucci, Elie Saab, Michael kors Balmain , Issey Miyake and more who have been in step with the zeitgeist.
Getting inspired by Urban London, the Alexander McQueen show was absolutely stunning extracted from elements such as prints of English wild fowers, punk, thistle prints on the very so loved fabric for summers i.e. Cotton. This show was one of the most beautiful and stood out amongst the many for models that looked like mermaids or sea dwellers wraped in cropped kick flares relentlesly striving to up live the McQueen heritage.
A tribute to the 70’s nightclub and the very elite pick up joints, Gucci did bring back a lot of glitter, elevated patterns , gigantically platformed footwear like the dressing of prostitutes in Renaissance Venice. The floral print did give a delicate touch to the garments. Every garment had a unique story to be told.
‘GET HAPPY’ was the theme for the season at Michael Kors. The collection was feminine yet had a Masculine touch to it, Getting in a sense of drama with a mix of 40’s and 80’s. The garments were provocative and flirtatious. Colors such as grapefruit pink and lime green were a favorite. Everything about this show felt just right.
It’s all about Dancing, Nightlife and the Seventies. A riot of bold star prints, Multi-coloured fit and flare silk minidresses teamed with swooch cloak jackets. The show looked glitzy, fun and light. What we would term “Effectively Alive”
Blue and white gridded traingular dresses, a free-spirited Issey Miyake described it as “cut & stick” fabrication by sticking two different materials. He showcased a lot of colour blocking with jersey fluid fabrics along with with a stiff one, with irregular trapezoid shapes on plain backgrounds. It left hearts breathing faster when the models changed colour on thier handbags during the show powered by Sony.
Visiting the 60’s and the 80’s thats what it felt like watching Balmains show.The garments were really chic and French. One couldnt trace embroideries. Color did the talking along with a visit to the jungle; with cargo greens, mismatched snakeskin print, Graphic stripes teamed with a lot of knits. One saw multicolored long slash dresses with multicolor crystals in Art Deco motifs. In all lines worked magic.
Tapping into his California roots, we got to see bikini top made from button-down fabric, Bathing suits and silk evening gowns. The show was trendy,cool and perfect for the 2017 Summers.
