This isn’t new but white still dominates next summer. countless silhouettes in white total looks were spotted on the catwalks of the 4 fashion capitals. three essentials to obtain. firstly the shirt that grows and turns into a dress that’s light and comfortable to wear.
next, trousers remain a basic but are now worked with a matched element of the same colour. the snowy white suit becomes very trendy and perfectly illuminates a tanned complexion. finally, the cocktail dress. in pristine white, it makes a statement. the designers play with volumes, pleats and slits to emphasize the skin with this neutral tone. it’s no longer solely associated with bridal gowns even in its long version. moreover, to reduce the brightness, another trick is to choose transparent textures for more lightness.
in opposition to white, colours persist. they’re a source of positivity and good humor. once again, three tones emerge. pink is presented in its chic version from the big couturiers, for evening dresses, skirt or trouser suits sometimes veering towards purple and red. in addition to pink, believe it or not orange is also a colour that will dominate. its bright appearance perfectly represents the summer desire. just like yellow which made its debut last summer and which is permanently established this season.

rabih kayrouz : i love white shirts and i think white shirts make people look very elegant.
peter dundas : this time i wanted something that was lighter and more sober. i started with last winter and continued with transparent parts to show the skin.
derek lam : i wanted to do a spring summer collection where you break the expectation of pastels or whites to introduce a new palette, a warm palette.
