More will most definitely be more, every detail magnified and every fabric richer than the last. At the same time, a certain singularity is coming to the fore, with attention-grabbing minimalism, lightweight silhouettes and mono-chromes. We look at a concentration of top trends, from emerging to established looks, as we fast forward to spring 2017 Haute couture.
From Dior to Schiaparelli, pleated fabrics were spotted in maxi dresses, skirts, jackets and even on necklines. The feminine folds were airy, modern and minimal in fabrics that dance to the movement of the body.
They are really everywhere. On the extremities of dresses, on outerwear — especially in the cases of Chanel and Valentino— or on textiles, giving them a fluid quality, as Atelier Versace did. Are feathers the new fur coats?
The androgynous trend is back in couturiers versions of vintage-y looking embellished suits in lush fabrics, giving Spring’s lightweight silhouettes a hefty makeover. On the plus side, you can ditch the jewellery and only let your outfit shine!
Like last year, designers still subscribe to the idea that the more ornate the better—and double points for gilded accents. We’re particularly loving Georges Hobeika’s pastel hued glistening fabrics turned into tailored dresses!
Clashing colours has always been big but single chromatic outfits are bigger and better this season. Couturiers pay tribute to summer in cheery shades of the rainbow, adapted to all kinds of separates and accessories!
