COLORS OF SPRING 2016

By Madeline Poole, Spring 2016

Negative space is at the forefront again seen in both clear and sheer shades. Baby blues, periwinkle, mints, rose blush tones, and chrome accents mingle with sporty 90's flavor and a disco infusion.

Clothing came in many shades of robin's egg blue, mint, and pale aqua. There were shades of sheer dusty blue chiffon at Gucci, pale aqua at JW Andersen, bright turquoise and baby blue silk at Oscar De La Renta, denim blue tweed at Chanel, and minty patent leather at Rochas. In addition to shades of silk, we also saw tons of blue eyes on the runway from DVF to Phillip Lim and Karen Walker.

Usage of different width stripes is a nod to the 90's and athletic inspired clothing.

Chrome

Chrome made its way onto the runway at Vetements, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, big time at Isabel Marant, Jeremy Scott, and Vionnet. We saw chrome sequins at Lanvin, shattered mirrored pants at Loewe and Margiela, chrome striped raincoats at Prada, epic gold chrome encrusting at Rochas, sequin disco dresses at Saint Laurent, sequin silver collars at Sonia Rykiel, and full length mirrored slip dresses at Temperly London.

Rose & Blush

Beige and dusty pink is a commonly trending nail color as it is so easy to wear and so neutral. It can be paired well with so many different patterns, shades, and sheens. We saw colors of this kind at JW Anderson, Gucci, Delpozo, Dries Von Noten and Vionnet. The soft pink shade balanced pattern on pattern play, chromes, and complicated meshes and lace. This color has a feeling of late 70's disco and early 80’s fashion.
