Spring-Summer 2015 Fashion
8 fashion trends to expect next season
From London to New York to Bangkok, we’ve seen some fabulous designs for Spring and Summer 2015, and – better yet – we’ve found clothes that aren’t just stunning on the catwalk, but perfect for the streets as well. Here’s our top 8:
1. Sassy Suede
Two favorite fabrics had a big presence in the fashion shows – denim and suede. Of the two, the less-common suede was met with bigger fanfare. And, this time, suede isn’t just for accents; various designers crafted full-body garments made from this lovely, soft material.
2. Power Denim
We’ll probably never get rid of denims, nor would we ever get tired. For next season, designers like Gucci took their inspiration from the 70s, while Burberry Prorsum updated the denim jacket by adding peplums.
3. Kickin’ Kimono
A surprising trend, kimono-inspired designs were a-plenty the latest fashion shows. The designs are divided between those made for ease of wear and those meant to stun, either of which is marvelous
4. Gingham Evolution
The gingham dresses we’ve seen weren’t designed for picnics or meeting your SO’s family for the first time. No, these dresses are hot and chic and most suited for a night in town with your girl friends.
5. Back to the 70s
Prada spurred the fever for 70s fashion, and now designers like Tommy Hilfiger, Emilio Pucci, House of Holland, and Tom Ford have all added their own creations to the trend.
6. Pop Art
Continuing the trend for vintage style, we can also expect pop art to, well, pop on the streets come spring and summer. Revitalized by last year’s Chanel carton bags, other designers who have tried their hands on this trend include Anya Handmarch and Moschino.
Some designs traded high heels for flats and sneakers, delicate fabrics for the more durable mesh, nylon and neoprene. However, the cuts are as cutting edge, just as you’d expect from designers like Sacai, Alexander Wang, Gucci, and DKNY. Come spring, expect to see lots of short shorts and bra tops.
8. Cool Vest
A bit late for the season, but as stylish as ever, vests are expected to maintain a presence throughout the middle of next year. With designs from Reed Krakoff and Rag & Bone, among others, some vests can be worn as stand-alone tops or as layers.
