Trends To Expect For Spring/Summer 2015

You may have read my previous predictions on what the trends will be for spring/summer 2015 (spring-summer-2015-trend-report), but now that the fashion season is over I can give you a more accurate heads up on next years trends…

  • COLOURS

White
White is one of, the major colours for next year SS15 and was all over the catwalks from Armani to Chloe.
Designers: Salvatore Ferragamo, Roberto Cavalli, Giorgio Armani, Simone Rocha, Valentin Yudashkin, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Elie Saab, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney, Akaris, Chloe, Kenzo, Mugler, Isabel Marant, Issey Miyake, Lowe

Blue
The dominant blue next year looks to be a darker inky blue, but if you are after a more summery colour then you will be pleased to know that brighter turquoise and powder blues made an appearance.

Orange
Orange was one of my predictions in my previous blog, and having spotted it in various catwalk shows it seems this bold statement colour will make a welcome change to the pastels we have been seeing.

Dusky pastels,
Slightly different to the pastels we saw this year, for SS15 it seems that dusky pastels, or baby pinks & blues mixed with calmer creams and beige’s will be popular, giving a much softer and more zen like appearance.
Designers: Missoni, Marco de Vincenzo, Hermes, Paul & Joe, Stella McCartney, Haider Ackermann, Julien David, Nina Ricci, Balencia, Alexis Mabille

Summer Black
I think everyone loves black so you will be please to know that black was a strong colour contender on the catwalks for SS15.

  • STYLES

Bermuda Shorts
Whether they are baggy or more straight leg, the bermuda is the trend for next year’s shorts. My tip – keep hold of your old work trousers & take them to a tailor to be shortened!
Designers: Dries Van Noten, Jil Sander, Bottega Veneta,Emilio de la Morena, Louis Vuitton, Vanessa Bruno, Kenzo, Christian Dior

Wide leg trousers
I hate to say it, but skinnies for next year were nowhere in sight on the catwalks! Its all about wide leg trousers, either full length or cropped.
Designers: Dries Van Noten, Trussardi, Marni, Georgio Armani, Fashion East, Hermes, Valentin Yudashkin, Chanel, Celine, Kenzo, Issey Miyake, Sonia Rykiel

Fringing & raw edging
Again, I mentioned this in my previous blog, but it appeared more on the catwalks than I was expecting and ranged from fringed jumpers to fringed hemlines and handbags.
Designers: Dries Van Noten, Cedric Charlier, Gareth Pugh, Salvatore Ferragamo, Emilio Pucci, Giorgio Armani. Etro, Alberta Ferretti, Marques Almeida, Paule Ka, Sonia Rykiel, Giambattista Valli, Avelon, John Galliano, Celine, Esteban Cortazar, Isabel Marant

Denim
We’ve started to see patchwork denim and ripped boyfriend jeans for AW, so its only natural that denim will continue for Spring Summer. The ripped denim seems to be a favorite. 
Designers: Au Jour Le Jour, Roberto Cavalli, DSquared2, Ashish, Burberry,  Gucci, Kenzo, Jean Paul Gaultier, Damir Doma, Chloe

Denim


Long length waistcoats & dusters
Balencia’s collection is a good example of this trend as it covered not only the longer length duster coats but also the longer length waist coats as well. Think the masculine trend we know of, but with a more feminine edge.
Designers: Cedric Charlier, Christophe Lemaire, Gabriele Colangelo, Bottega Veneta, Acne, Christian Dior, Lanvin, Balmain, Blaencia

Eatherial long length dresses & skirts
It seems that next year is split between really long or very short skirts and dresses. The longer length skirts are soft, floaty fabrics giving a truly feminine look . Also skirts with pleats seemed to be popular.
Designers: Luisa Baccari, Blumarine, Ports 1961, Just Cavalli, Alberta Ferretti, Hermes, Paul & Joe, Valentin Yudashkin, Leonard, Stella McCartney, John Galliano, Chloe, Antonio Berardi

Mini Skirts
These mini’s came in lengths you could wear, to lengths you should definitely avoid unless you are a model!
Designers: Guy Laroche, Anthony Vaccarello, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Valentin Yudashkin, Chanel, St Laurent, Sonia Rykiel, Carven

Statement Belts
In a similar way that we’ve seen celebrities wearing scarves around their necks and them belted round the waist, it seems a longer length belt tied and left to dangle will be next years trend.
Designers: No.21, Hermes, St Laurent, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Haider Ackermann, Christian Dior

So that’s my round-up. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the report!
