This is fashion as abstract art. Think about simple silhouettes as a base, embellished with a contrast of geometric cuts or even origami.
2015 SPACE ODYSEY
Talk of space travel to Mars, technological advances from Silicon Valley, a return to solar power as a source of "green energy".... silver makes a brief appearance. Think about foiling a portion of a garment, or fashioning a metallic top to be worn over white or perhaps a simple dress made from a texturized silver fabric.
Again we see a theme explored during New York Fashion Week...frayed edges. In addition, the Julien MacDonald garments are made from a combination drawn thread work and lattice trim. The general idea is to create texture by manipulating the fabric itself. Hint: Instead of using denim for this, consider chambray or silk! Also, the open work is lined with a flesh tone fabric.
SHAPE OF PANTS TO COME
Pants come is all sizes and shapes. What we like best are looks borrowed from the 1960's: bra top over hip hugger stovepipe pants, the tunic pantsuit and pants with a built in cummerbund.
Here's a perfect example of how the designer's environment is translated into clothes. With all the talk of immigrants--from the Syrians fleeing their country to the problems in the Ukraine, designers have gone behind the scene into the folkloric backgrounds of Easterners and emerged with an interpretation of ethnic patterns and prints used in contemporary silhouettes.
At the end of the day, we can take a pause and slip into gear that's easy on the eyes and comfortable to wear. This means body skimming ankle length jersey dresses, wide trousers and jumpsuits or a sexy jersey dress that slithers off one shoulder!
