Sparkles, sequins and high-shine fabrics are having a major moment this season. While Marc Jacobs and Sonia Rykiel went with maxi dresses covered in sequins, Marni and Lanvin kept things rather edgy with much shorter hemlines and colour-pop accessories. If you’re feeling brave, turn to Prada’s latest incarnation of a metallic-detailed skirt, finished with a fully embellished oversized jacket and shiny lips.
What’s that? You haven’t heard the bomber is the new blazer? From Anthony Vaccarello’s military-esque style to André Courrèges bright neon version, it’s the jacket to buy now. If you fancy going slightly traditional then be sure to keep Rag & Bone and Emilio Pucci high on the agenda.
Looks like designers had their own pyjama party on the SS16 runway. From Thakoon's pale blue robe to Calvin Klein's all-white look, there's nothing sleepy about this trend. We also can't seem to get enough of the printed luxe versions, courtesy Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and the enviably romantic Etro.
Take a bevy of languid styles from the bedroom on to the streets as the '90s slip dresses are back; and no, you don’t have to be as skinny as Kate Moss to wear them! Go daring this season with Celine’s scalloped lingerie lace or Rochas' see-through adaptation. Or indulge in desirable fabrics with much simpler versions—think Calvin Klein, Victoria Beckham and Alexander Wang.
When it comes to this summer’s easiest trend, there’s only one rule: The brighter the better. Welcome the happy sunset tones and make orange the juiciest option for your sartorial choices. If designers including Prabal Gurung, Ralph Lauren, Adam Selman and Altuzarra amongst others can do it, so can you!
