The hottest trends for Spring /Summer 2016 have been incorporated into a wide range of designers’ collections; we’ve got backless tops with Céline, lace with Givenchy, vintage florals with Gucci and bold colours with Chloé.
One trend however that I think is truly eye-cathing is Emporio Armani’s array of masculine suits mixed with warm colours and delicate details – looks that will flatter so many different female shapes. Whilst keeping the general look simple and fresh, the sharp cuts and intricate designs make the pieces really stand out.
What is great about this collection is that although there is so much attention to detail, all of the pieces can be so effortlessly paired together. This is something that not all designers manage to pull off when creating their new lines.
Here are some of my favourites from the collection:
Runway Canvas Gilet – an absolutely stunning colour and yet you can see it working with so many other hues.
Runway Chevron Trousers – the basketweave pattern makes for an impressive statement. They look comfortable and elegant.
Runway Silk Scarf in black and white – a perfect accompaniment with any of the above pieces.
Tulle Gilet – a beautiful, soft and feminine colour with exquisite detail.
Leather Belt– works well with trousers, skirts and dresses.
Trousers in Glossy Flannel – another flattering pair that would look modern with trainers or graceful with heels.
I think there is quite a strong message behind the collection – that women are strong. We can wear suits and look powerful and in charge. We can also wear feminine dresses and warm colours and look sensual, sexy and confident.
This striking assembly of clothing has set the bar high for the next season’s collection and I can’t wait to see it on the catwalk.
