SS15 Trend Report

So with Christmas over, Summer holidays being too far away and the grim reality of going back to work hanging over our heads, it's only fair we give ourselves something to look forward to in-between!
With the Spring/Summer collections for 2015 already starting to hit the rails, we're getting ready to inject a healthy boost of colour & pattern into our dull Winter wardrobes. Get inspired by our 5 favourite upcoming trends for the season ahead.

Burberry – Dreamy Denim

From classic skinny jeans to boyfriend styles and dungarees – there’s so many ways we can wear our favourite wardrobe staple. For the season ahead, Burberry take jeans out of the spotlight & give denim a new lease of life by focussing on layering chic tulle separates with one key denim piece.

Tip: Invest in a premium denim jacket you can wear now and it’ll last all season.

Marc by Marc Jacobs – Polka Dots

Whilst focussing mainly on the iconic polka dot print, the hit SS15 Marc by Marc Jacobs collection showcased some sweet wearable pieces including full skirted minis, baggy t-shirt dresses, cropped tees and bandeau tops.

Tip: Layering is key - mix and match polka dot prints with jersey tops & high shine leggings.

Saint Laurent – 70s Showdown

Feeling nostalgic? Lucky for you the 70s are making a come-back in a big way this Spring/Summer! From bursts of psychedelic floral print, patchwork suede and Ziggy Stardust worthy platforms, Saint Laurent revived all that was groovy in their SS15 catwalk show.

Tip: With festival season in mind, work retro prints & distressed denim for effortless boho style.

Giorgio Armani - Sand

Rippled chiffon, loose tailoring and crystal embellished organza are the stars of the Giorgio Armani SS15 collection. Inspired by the lapping waves of the ocean & desert sand, Armani have created a range of loose, easy to wear shapes in a versatile muted palette for the upcoming season.

Tip: Shimmering eye make-up & a sleek up-do are the perfect accompaniments for the trend.

Valentino - Printworks

Get inspired by Valentino’s vibrant explosion of prints & dyes when planning your new season wardrobe. With bold geometric patterns, tropical florals and a fearless approach to the colour wheel, the Pre Spring & SS15 collections showcase everything you need to liven up your looks.

Tip: Don’t be afraid to clash! Work multiple prints in bright shades this season.
