Spring Summer 2016 Trends

From the sketch books, runways and boutiques... 

Summer style is inspired by a rich world of romance and a bohemian spirit this season. With 'day to night' boudoir allure in high supply across all ladies collections, little hints of lingerie and evening glamour are making their way into our everyday wardrobe rotation. With strong striped and printed patterns adding to the mix, a bohemian chic aesthetic takes on different styles: exotic hedonism, romantic military and boho cool.

 

For both men and women alike, denim will always be a mainstay throughout the seasons. Recreated in a light blue hue, an exotic spirited style resonates through all of our favourite designs; like a warm Saharan breeze, desert designs are re-purposed in an array of detailed embroidery, ethnic beading, leopard print panelling, safari bandanas and traditional African prints. Finally, the urban city chic look is back for another season, offering a unique take on biker-cool with romantic, graphic and graffiti inspired style cues.

 

Stripes 

An iconic design for men, women and kids, the classic Breton stripe is back for another season. Revisited with a new edge for summer '16, classic designs are updated with original twists, glitter, sequins, lace and peek-a-boo panelling, in a rainbow of colours and fresh shapes – A style essential for the season ahead.

 

 

Boho Chic

Dainty dresses take on a free-spirited style with long, relaxed and light fabrics, lace, pleating and panelling – the ideal fashion contrast to pair with military louche mid-layers.
