Blue is all around. Forget hyacinths – the promise of spring manifests itself most compellingly in a freshly laundered dress. Sweet florals and languorous silk lingerie styles abounded on the catwalks, set against a profusion of dazzling sequinned and ruffled options for wild summer nights, but don’t get carried away just yet: ease yourself into the season with true blue. Wear with longline blazers now to ward off lingering chills; switch up with espadrilles as summer temperatures rise.
THE fashion landscape right now is full of street styles, urban edge and sports accents. We dress down, we feel comfortable and then of course there is the opposite end of the spectrum: dressing for the red carpet. But who really does that?
For those somewhere in the middle of all of this comes salvation in Vera Wang, who designs for adults, riffs on classics and keeps within her own parameters to surprisingly stand out. Masculine shirting, wide-leg, loose trousers and straight-down dresses that gave no hint of feminine curve, jackets and coats of off-kilter proportions – it was full of subtle segues.
