PODIUM ITALIA. SPRING – SUMMER 2017
The Spring-Summer 2017 season can be considered open. What to expect from high couture and what trends are worth paying attention too? We will show and tell you.
Lingerie inspired style, despite criticism, not only stays trendy but has also became a major element in many collections. Silk tops, shorts, and shirts with superfine lace trim appear in the collections of Alexander Wang, Celine, Pinko, Tresophie, and Wolford.
Transparency is the key seduction for the spring-summer fashion season. There are a lot of semi translucent dresses and tops that delicately reveal through transparent fabrics such as lace and mesh in the collections of Valentino, Milly, and other fashion houses.
Lace became an independent trend, appearing in Valentino, Self-Portrait, Tresophie, Emporio Armani, Ermanno Scervino, and other collections. Moreover, despite transparency, lace represents aristocratic femininity. Lace patterns look particularly attractive on dresses and tops.
Black becomes one of the obvious favorites of the season, despite the usual lavishness of the colors of spring and summer. Dresses and suits designed by St. John, Alexander Wang, Elie Saab, Ermanno, and Ermanno Scervino show black differently, a bit somber.
Leopard prints, frequently used in the new collection, look like “Greetings” from the 90s. Red Valentino, Alexander Wang, and other fashion houses designed a total-look in leopard print.
The big hit of Spring-Summer 2017 is multi-layering – this time mixed with asymmetry and uneven cuts. The designers of the Celine and Rick Owens fashion houses played with contrast this season.
Grunge returns in the collections of Alexander Wang and Dsquared2: shabby and distressed denim jeans and vests.
Emporio Armani, Roberto Cavalli, and Theory Resort present two and three –piece suits as well as trouser sets. Despite the exaggerated volumes, these suits make every woman look very feminine.
There is not enough shine, especially during the spring-summer season. The sparkle appears on trousers, bombers and tops. Tory Burch, Moncler Gamme Rouge joined the group of gloss fans.
Maxi length is not synonymous with boring. Roberto Cavalli, the fan of femininity, offers dresses, jumpsuits, and even trouser suits of exaggerated length.
Shirts are the basic item for both business women and all who follow trends. The new season dictates a trend by transforming shirts into jumpsuits and dresses. The designers of Self-Portrait, Theory, Steve J & Yoni P, Milly, Alexander Wang, and Theory Resort experiment with shirts this season.
Sports chic has secured its place among the leading trends. Bombers and sports pants and a scuba diving theme are in focus. Salvatore Ferragamo, Alexander Wang, Philipp Plein, and many other designers demonstrate this style successfully
Ethnic ideas migrated from the chest to the runway. Inca, Peruvian and Gypsy motifs appeared in the collections of Valentino, BCBG Max Azria, Elie Saab, Ermanno by Ermanno Scervino, and Roberto Cavalli.
Bigger doesn’t mean better. Miniature reticules occupied a noticeable place on the runway. Valentino pays special attention to this piquant accessory in the spring-summer collection.
Color blocking appeared at catwalk three seasons ago and continues to remain significant. A good example of this trend is Milly Spring-Summer 17 collection.
Military styles are revealed through epaulets, gilded buttons and shoulder straps. The collections of Ermanno Scervino, Fay, Ingie Paris and Moncler Gamme Rouge give women the opportunity to feel more powerful and brutal.
Overseas remains the main trend, despite the criticism of the fan of feminity. The new collections of Rick Owens, Celine, Emporio Armani, and other fashion houses are full of fanciful volumes and “far-fetched” shapes.
Pastel shades are predictable for the Spring Summer 2017 season. Elie Saab demonstrates this trend gracefully in its collection.
There is nothing more appropriate for spring than light shades. Cappelini and Ermanno by Ermanno Scervino made white the main color in their collections: white suits and dresses, decorated with finest lace, embroidery, and mesh.
It sounds like a paradox, but this summer knitting is trendy. Cappelini and Milly focused on sweaters and dresses made of textured knitted thread.
Lush ballerina skirts appear in the season’s advertising campaigns. Flowing chiffon of different lengths and shapes create feminine images in many collections, such as Cappelini.
The new game for designers is variations on different linings. The Rick Owens collection shows this trend most evidently, even to the point of slight exaggeration. In contrast to the dense mini, “frivolous” and translucent lining looks both bold and extraordinary.
The 80s is on stage again. In the new season flare jeans and platform shoes as well as hippies and disco are look like a greeting from the past. Patrizia Pepe, Valentino Red, Self-Portrait, and Up Jeans are the fans of this trend.
Red is as classic as black. Tory Burch, Valentino, Elie Saab, Ermanno Scervino, Moncler Gamme Rouge, and many other designers created their total look and many accessories in a rich red color.
Metallic shine, a look into the future, is represented in the new collections of Patrizia Pepe, Pinko, Up Jeans, and Dsquared2. Many controversial shapes and bright solutions. Spring and summer is the best time to wear shinning outfits. Especially popular this season is outerwear made of eco-leather and other smooth textures
Jumpsuits and suits took special place in this season’s collections of Valentino Red, Emporio Armani, and Ermanno Scervino. Ethnic motives and geometric prints are very popular in the warm season.
The patches and badges that many of you used to collect in childhood are going to be very fashionable this season. Big flowers, stars, and pop art are shown in the collections of Up Jeans and Dsquared2.
Designers offer to show as much of the body as possible; high slits, perforations and off the shoulder tops and dresses. BCBG Max Azria and Milly do it very delicately and innocently.
Floral print rules fashion this spring and summer. There are three main themes: a futuristic mosaic of flowers, tapestries, and flowers themselves. A lot of variations on textures and fabrics are presented in the collections of Salvatore Ferragamo, Steve J & Yoni P, Tory Burch, and Ermanno Scervino.
Another hit of the season is khaki. Inspired by military style, Salvatore Ferragamo, Emporio Armani, and Fay offer outfits in different shades of Khaki.
Volume appears not only in the usual oversize shapes but also in ruffles on trousers, jumpsuits, and dresses. Elie Saab, Rick Owens, Ingie Paris, and other fashion houses offer collections with soft ruffles and flutters.
