Probably the second one, right? 😀
Northern Europe is a firm favourite for travellers right now and the Mediterranean basin is also tempting for those who wish to simply relax in the sun.
In Africa, Tanzania with the stunning landscapes of its National Parks and accompanying wildlife are waiting to astound you at the end of the rainy season.
It’s a great time too to visit Brazil, especially Rio where temperatures stay around 25°C at the moment and the rains are fairly rare at the present.
Since it first hit the runway over 40 years ago, khaki has become a fashion classic, returning this season with a bang. Appearing in varying styles for a number of fashion houses, we saw suede khaki pieces at Chanel’s feminist protest, while Marc Jacobs offered sexy, military silhouettes and Ralph Lauren opted for Out of Africa, Safari-style glamour.
Stepping straight out of 1970s Marrakech, these long, light and flowing dresses will billow in the breeze this summer as you take on the elements in style. This season, the luxury bohemian trend, inspired by Talitha Getty’s iconic hippie-chic look, took to the runway in powder pink silhouettes for Alberta Ferretti, kaleidoscope motifs at Etro while Claire Waight Keller toyed with lace and pleat effects at Chloé.
From fighter pilots to technicians, this season, designers took inspiration from the world of industry, to create fashion-forward utilitarian looks. At Dior, Pucci and Ralph Lauren all-in-ones and jumpsuits were given a couture edge with accessories such as leather belts, scarves and statement jewelry, as well as extra long zips and straps with oversized buttons. Swapping the warehouse for an art gallery the jumpsuit is set to be the uniform for the chic and sophisticated next season.
Next season denim makes its return to the runway, reinvented in faded blues and a range of textured effects, to take on a persona that shifts between good-girl bourgeois and sex siren on her day off. From more conventional end of the spectrum, first prize goes to the little Gucci dress for the carefully pulled-together cowgirl look, the Burberry trench that awakens the codes of British style with its contrasting suede panels, while Tommy Hilfiger’s patchwork ensemble spans the denim color palette, with stitched-together square jean pieces.
Like the Romantic heroines, the girls at Valentino, Chloé and Louis Vuitton were dressed in delicate fabrics that played on the transparency of ethereal white lace. The intricately worked fabric delicately unveils bare skin, lifting a veil of desire on the runway.
With long silhouettes tied at the waist, the Kimono proved to be an inspiration for a number of fashion houses this season. From Marni’s cream outfit accentuated with an oversized black belt, to the delicate floral design inspired by a Hokusai drawing at Gucci and Céline’s sleek black silhouette with exposed seams and a deep blue belt mirroring the look of a martial arts champion.
Fashion Week took to the coast for next season, as a sea breeze swept over the runways in Milan, New York and Paris. From the oversized coat at Lanvin, a yachting-inspired dress at Chloé and Marc Jacob’s nod to the sailor’s uniform, the designers set sail in search of new horizons for Spring/Summer 2015.
From the shiny leopard dress by Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent to the ultra-short, lurex effect one-shouldered dress seen at Isabel Marant and head-to-toe shine at the Tom Ford show, from Paris to New York the runway geared up for an all-night party this Fashion Week. These 1970s metallics are a sure-fire way feel sexy under the disco ball.
Whether it was the lasting impact of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan or the revival of classical dance which influenced the designers this season, undoubtedly the long tutu skirts seen gracing the runways were inspired by ballerinas. With Giorgio Armani, Valentino and Alberta Ferretti all offering silhouettes evoking a look part-way between a prima ballerina and a vestal virgin, the elegant tulle dresses were classic red carpet designs, perfect for the red carpets of the Oscars awards ceremony. To deliver a glammed-up twist, the designers swapped the ballet shoe for pumps, heels or gladiator sandals laced up to the knee.
Mix & Match
With pieces in silk, cottons, patchwork prints and materials as wells as an array of different colors, the runway resonated with modernity as eclectic looks and conceptual silhouettes took centre stage.
