Sugar, spice, and everything nice - these were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girls - and the perfect spring collections! Spring 2015, in a figurative sense, could be likened to what Carrie Bradshaw once said: "There's a brief moment when you first wake up, where you have no memories. A blissful blank slate, a happy emptiness". Spring 2015 designers strove for innovation, unlike the previous seasons. They once again reminded us of the enthusiasm of firsts, and the innocence and optimism that comes along with it. This stand was carried by giving nods to the unspoken feelings, the unnoticed spectacles, and the extraordinary nestled within the very character of the ordinary.
Traces of the minimalist approach were still quite visible although the very debatable fashion phenomenon normcore was quite questionably portrayed in a number of collections. Has the recent popularity of normcore destroyed that 'cool', 'chill', 'I don't give a damn what other people say' aura that it is known for in exchange for that deliberate effort to create an effortless look? Probably so. But nonetheless, have these designers satisfied our ever increasing appetite for more sumptuous visual delights? INDEED!
Christopher Kane oh Christopher Kane, you never fail to excite us all! This spring collection is perfect for the artsy farsty glamour gal in you. The blend of sheer, flowy, and structured silhouettes are quite exquisite and indicative of Kane's superb talents. We're just so excited to dive into his magical creations. Overall, this collection is not only a prominent collection this season, but a staple set of creations of Kane himself.
Clover Canyon's collection was inspired by pan-asian and it was an ingenious creation of carefully assigned prints and colors. Looking into the future, i say this will be a sure hit to all street style enthusiasts.
Milly's collection was one big "wow" moment - in the chicest sense. Its first look was this casual ensemble composed of this sheer coat, white top, and hotpants. At first sight, You would think that this collection would be of the usual, monochromatic variant, but surprise! Milly was smart enough to get past this and draw up really exciting designs. I especially liked the 25th look (as sequenced on style.com) because it has this unexplained, dynamic nature, that evokes the idea of cool effortlessly. I also think it's an outfit that can still speak the language of chic even in ten, twenty years from now
Pop art was used in a refined and elegant way as Issa presented her equine theme to express femininity by means of loose silhouettes. Also, this is another sure hit for street style enthusiasts.
