Spring 2017 Trends: Rainbow

To be perfectly honest, embracing all of ROY G. BIV come springtime isn’t that much of a trend–we all know things get lighter and brighter as the sun returns with full force. So here are some rainbow outfits just for fun!

Spring 2017 Trend Report: Purple

Purple can be tough. While it’s a playful colour, it is not typically considered very professional. Finding colours to go with it can be a challenge at first, so it was surprising to see purples from lavender to rich plum shades all over the Spring 2017 runways! As always, all these looks are pulled from design houses helmed by women!

Bibliostyle: “The Bohemian Girl” by Willa Cather


Above: Orla Kiely Resort 2016

Mrs. Olaf Ericson–Clara Vavrika, as many people still called her-was moving restlessly about her big bare house that morning. Her husband left for the country town before his wife was out of bed–her lateness in rising was one of the many things the Ericson family had against her. Clara seldom came downstairs before eight o’clock, and this morning she was even later, for she had dressed with unusual care. She put on, however, only a tight-fitting black dress, which people thereabouts thought very plain. She was a tall, dark woman of thirty, with a rather sallow complexion and a touch of dull salmon red in her cheeks, where the blood seemed to burn under her brown skin. Her hair, parted evenly above her low forehead, was so black that there were distinctly blue lights in it. Her black eyebrows were delicate half-moons and her lashes were long and heavy. Her eyes slanted a little, as if she had a strain of Tartar or gypsy blood, and were sometimes full of fiery determination and sometimes dull and opaque. Her expression was never altogether amiable; was often, indeed, distinctly sullen, or, when she was animated, sarcastic. She was most attractive in profile, for then one saw to advantage her small, well-shaped head and delicate ears, and felt at once that here was a very positive, if not an altogether pleasing, personality.

– from “The Bohemian Girl” of the eponymous collection of stories by Willa Cather

Warm Weather Suiting: Spring/Summer 2015

Something that caught my eye when looking at all the Spring/Summer 2015 collections was all the lighter, warmer-weather outfits inspired by business attire. Collars, crisply-folded fabric, button-up details all contributed to the ‘work/play’ feel that comes with collections meant for sunnier months.

Here are my fave warm weather suit looks by female designers.

Temperley London, designed by Alice Temperley is always a favourite of mine, regardless of season. I really, really liked the casual, tomboy suit separates she sent down the runway. The choice to use white and light pink for these separates made this collection especially notable.

Sacai is designed by Chitose Abe. Her Spring/Summer 2015 collection had lots of military details, but the slightly-undone uniform elements are all there. I especially loved the cheeky pinstripe ensembles.

Wayne is designed by Wayne Lee, and yes, how cool is it that her name is Wayne? I first heard of Lee when reading Lucky’s style guide book, as she was one of the stylish people profiled. Her Spring/Summer collection is all pared-down cool–I feel like I could wear any of these collared ensembles and be the best-dressed person in the room while not look like I’m trying too hard.

Rei Kawakubo is the boss lady behind Comme des Garçons and this, its sister line  (albeit with a confusing name–you’re not seeing double) Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons. I liked these childish, androgynous takes on elements of suits. Formal but frumpy, cool but possessing an unexpected innocence.
