#1 Cinched Waists
Belted or nipped, the feminine form was front and centre in nearly every collection.
#2 Graphic Designs
For a week of Spring season shows there were surprisingly few florals as designers gravitated instead toward graphic prints.
#3 LBDs and LWDs
The week was filled with lots of little black and little white dresses for soirée-filled springs, from the classic cuts at Muse to the saucy little textured number at Barilà.
#4 Playing Peekaboo
Get maximum exposure with single layers of lace, sheer sleeveless blouses and strategically placed cutouts as seen at Ève Gravel, Paria Lambina, Barilà and Coccolily.
#5 Colour blocking
Bright, broken up sections of fabric looked fresh at Marie Saint Pierre, while Valerie Dumaine’s dark, sculptural versions offered a more subdued take on the trend.
#6 Short Cuts
If Coccolily’s bold-hued bloomers and Second’s hot pants are any indication of what’s to come, we’d better start hitting up the StairMaster now.
Whether finely fluted or in the form of wide folds, pleating popped up on everything from jacket pockets to flouncy and structured skirts.
Cascading frills added a feminine touch not just to necklines and sleeves but all over as well, as seen at Lovas Wesley Badanjak.
#9. Rouge Allure
Love for the fiery hue burned bright with David Dixon’s gorgeous evening gowns, Second’s scorching skinny jeans and Barilà’s red-hot romper.
#10. Sailor Stripes
Whether straightforward, as seen at Ève Gravel, or reinterpreted at Valérie Dumaine, it seems the popular seafaring style is sticking around for another season.
