Spring Awakening

The countdown to SS16 is on and with that in mind we select just four of our favourite common denominators on the runway – the shapes, the colours and the patterns that we feel are worthy of an early intro…

Shoulder Display

Probably one of our favourite looks for SS16, the big shoulder reveal is the height of sophistication. Its ability to nod to the 80s while exuding some Bardot class rocks our world and makes this a great daytime-to-evening staple.

Sporting the look was: Hugo Boss, Gabriela Cadena and Prabal Gurung

Denim Devotion

We know denim never fades but the couture designers are head over heels for all the jeans and it’s really having a moment. We have to admit that the skinny looks like it may bid us farewell soon in favour of a more generously shaped variety.

Sporting the look was: Dries Van Noten, Chloé, Chanel

The underworld

We don’t even think you need to veer out of the lingerie department to get this right. Who’s gonna know? Showing your intimates is on trend and you can wear it now with a contrasting luxe knit.

Sporting the look was: Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Céline

Draw the line

Ahh, stripes, how we love you. The quintessential transitional print is now a fully fledged seasonal essential this spring. Think all the stripes; from asymmetrical to our favourite, Breton.

Sporting the look was: Dolce and Gabbana, Ralph Lauren, Prada
