Summer 2016: Playful Patterns

June 30, 2016

Milan’s sophistication and Barcelona’s whimsical mystique are this season’s most desirable characteristics. The casual atmosphere and the luscious ambience resonate with high fashion’s lust for fun and extravagance. Items with patterns against exquisite fabrics are the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe. Polka dots, stripes, and florals align to formulate a striking personal narrative for the wearer.


Dresses sway with the breeze and illuminate surroundings. This Sacai Sleeveless Dress with Lace in White is as versatile as your life. The cinched waist accentuates your figure, while the lilies are beautiful adornments that showcase your serenity. A pair of sneakers or sandals can go a long way with this idyllic dress.


Polka dots are no longer an old woman’s game. This Comme Comme Polka Dot Jacket is simple and charming at once. The cropped jacket makes it the ideal piece for loose pants or even a midi skirt with platform sandals. Espadrilles and statement rings should make an exclusive appearance to enliven your entire ensemble.


Colourful splashes never do any harm. Issey Miyake’s Pleats Please collection includes all the colours of the rainbow and billowy fabrics that will sweep you away. The Printed Cropped Pants‘ bold colours speak for themselves. A nice minimalist white v-neck is the perfect partner in this dance for two.


Dauntless floral prints against succulent fabrics is Dries van Noten‘s signature approach. The Printed Paola Pants will brighten up any room or any lace top nearby. The Picabo Embroidered Shorts offer a sharp contrast between red and black. Flamenco dancers come to mind for these sharp and enchanting garments.
