Women’s spring 2015 fashion. The themes in fashion this spring. ’70s mood We’ve sensed them slowly working towards taking over the fashion trends this season, but it’s in spring 2015 when the ’70s influences are expected to bloom in all of their nostalgic-infused beauty. Although subtle, the hippie motifs meet the more modern accents in perfect harmony: 1970s fashion at Paul & Joe, Gucci and Prada, SS ’15 Romantic bohemian. We’re no strangers to the charms exuded by the modern bohemian, yet we can’t help but to look forward for spring 2015, when the bohemian sentiments are reimagined to carry an ultra-romantic aura. Expect an avalanche of flowy, dreamy, irresistible silhouettes: Romantic bohemian fashion at Alberta Ferretti, Emilio Pucci and Etro, SS ’15 Denim luxe. Denim becomes a thing of pure luxury for spring 2015, when aside form its rising versatility the fabric gains quite the unique spectrum of interpretations. Embellished, washed out, molded into ladylike silhouettes, or playing out its comfortable core, there’s no doubt that denim goes high-fashion for spring: Luxe denim at Giamba, Sonia Rykiel and Bottega Veneta, SS ’15 Androgynous tailoring. As if to set some balance to plethora of silhouettes awash with femininity trending for spring 2015, the androgynous tailoring arises strong and sleek-looking. Never have the masculine influences appeared so incredibly sophisticated and polished as they’re about to present themselves for spring: Luxe denim at Paul Smith, Prabal Gurung and Sonia Rykiel, SS ’15 Asymmetrical hems. Sex-appeal took on a whole new shape for spring 2015, in the guise of the unapologetically sensual asymmetrical hems. In either of their super-hot, casual-cool or rather flirty renditions, the asymmetrical hems are ready to spell out the sexy for spring: Asymmetrical hems at Anthony Vaccarello, Maison Martin Margiela and Costume National, SS ’15 Fringing. Picking up where it left of in 2014, expect the fringing trend to only gain in magnitude during the upcoming spring / summer season. Dressing up mini silhouettes, adding movement to the richest of fabrics, or breathing new life into the most laid-back of styles, the fringes are here to stay: Fringing at Giambattista Valli, Sonya Rykiel and Proenza Schouler, SS ’15 Gingham patterns. Seeing how every season needs its own individual hallmark, the gingham pattern acts as the perfect one for spring 2015. Dipped in the softest pastel tones, the tiny checks do a brilliant job in dressing down feather-weight fabrics that scream of summer nonchalance: Gingham patterns at Michael Kors, Altuzarra and Boettega Veneta, SS ’15 Luxurious suede. Next season, suede makes its return to the runway, reimagined to take on a luxurious character and an even richer range of silhouettes. In between daytime dresses, hippie-chic coats and utilitarian jumpsuits, suede has been given a new edge on the runway: Luxurious suede at Derek Lam, Gucci and Trussardi, SS ’15 Sporty chic. The athletic-inspired silhouettes are far from meeting the tail end of what has been their beautiful process of evolution. For spring 2015, the sports luxe is ready to indulge in a serious dose femininity, as the sporty silhouettes become more subtle and way chicer: Sporty chic fashion at Balenciaga, Yigal Azrouel and Lacoste, SS ’15 Skirt layering. With skirts of all lengths and shapes, wrapping up mini, midi and maxi dresses of all kinds, spring 2015 is about to give us a new lesson in layering. With plenty of exciting possibilities lying in expectation, get ready to see your favorite skirt do double duty come spring: Skirt layering at Peter Som, TOME and DKNY, SS ’15 Khaki tones. Popping up everywhere on the runways, khaki in all of its wonderful nuances, is the shade expected to add the needed amount of freshness to the upcoming spring season. From military, to modern safari takes, expect khaki to take on many characters come spring: Khaki tones at Acne, Yigal Azrouel and No. 21, SS ’15 Heavenly lace. If it’s spring, it’s lace. But do expect to be fully blown away by it in 2015, as the heavenly renderings that took on the runways look like nothing you have seen before. White, sublime and playing the uniqueness card, lace for spring puts a new twist on femininity: Heavenly lace at Chloe, Valentino and Givenchy, SS ’15 Sultry transparency. Worn all over, and barely shielded by a divine print, gorgeous ruffles or a sleek blazer, sultry transparency becomes spring 2015’s answer to blending a timeless sophistication with the art of suggestion. And as expected, the results are breathtaking: Sultry transparency at Valentino, Chloe and Michael Kors, SS ’15 Flare pants. With the ’70s signing for such a major comeback in 2015, it was bound for at least some of its signature silhouettes to end up revamping the mood for spring. Consequently, the flare pants became ubiquitous on the runway, dressed in prints and dipped in vivid colours: Flare pants at Derek Lam, Victoria Beckham and Emilio Pucci, SS ’15 Ruffles & frills. More of the romantic strings waiting to put a hold on the spring 2015 season, take the shape of dainty ruffles and delicate frills gently adorning both daytime and evening wear silhouettes. Complete with floral prints and exquisite embroideries, the ruffles and frills are to become spring’s next big thing: Ruffles and frills at Prabal Gurung, Burberry Prorsum and Marchesa, SS ’15 Japanese motifs. From the Far East comes the influence responsible for bringing to life one of the most cinematic fashion trends for spring 2015. Kimono cuts, wide belts and rounded shoulders complement the exotic feel of the Japanese motifs: Japanese motifs at Herve Leger, Maison Martin Margiela and Marni, SS ’15 High shine metallics. Spring 2015 saw the metallic silhouettes go from sporty, to slouchy and to perfectly tailored without ever letting go of their emblematic high-shine. Coming in many precious tones and with various finishes, the metallics appear to be stronger than ever: High-shine metallics at DKNY, Giles and Genny, SS ’15 More trend reports for spring 2015.
