Until a month ago the fashion world dazzled us with the rock & roll grudge looks. It drew its inspiration from the 80’s , bold , maximalist and tough, studded urban looks.
Ripped stockings, over the knee, thigh-high boots, biker jackets, plus leather clothing, coming in all shapes and forms, formed the wardrobe of every tough, chic, high street fashionista.
For S/S ‘10, designers went from bold to doll. The fashion universe decides to give you the chance to indulge in your softer side once again with spectacle lines of tulle miniskirts in a watercolor palette of lilac, mint, rose, lime, beige and baby blue.
Every dress combines layers of cashmere, silk, crepe, chiffon and lamé with pastel tones. Further on, one will find a fusion of digital prints in intense coloring and tribal elements on short and long dresses as well as t-shirts.
This season we see a romantic yet sexy theme coming from all fashion houses, such as Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Chloé, Celine, Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi. Delicate fabrics and profound knits make for this season’s best designs.
However, the geometrical, thick, urban concept is still standing strong in every runway despite what fashion houses portray as trends. Just take a look at labels such as Balmain, Balenciaga, Gucci and Martin Margiela.
Finally, we see and find lace everywhere from boudoir pieces, peek-a-booing last fall (i.e. Balenciaga bras) proudly presented and ready to be walked down every corner of every street. You will find dresses made strictly and only from lace like those shown at Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Nina Ricci, Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton. Nonetheless, designers didn’t stop there. Lace is used in jeans, shorts, t-shirts, blazers, bodysuits and even shoes and accessories. Inspiration came from the late 80’s Parisian looks.
