Fashion is all about shifting ideas and changing moods and with each season the desire to add the most covetable trends or the must have pieces to the wardrobes is a necessity. This Spring Summer 2014, Splash interprets the trends that were the fashion world’s talk and launches them with a high street perspective.
From aqua inspired florals to bold geometric patterns, head-to-toe white to bespoke sports the Splash collection is an interesting mix of dramatic atmosphere and varied styles.
Highlighting the very pulse of high-street fashion , the Splash SS’14 collection picks on key trends like ‘Eden’, ‘Nostalgia’ and ‘Rational’, ‘Creed’ for women and ‘Nautical Play’, ‘Earthy paradise’, ‘Sports Goth’ and ‘California Surf’ are key for men.
The ‘Eden’ trend is best represented by Acapulco-inspired florals growing alongside Aztec stripes in alluring colours. Feminine dressing will be the flavor of the season best represented with fit and flare dresses, crop tops and long maxi dresses with a lot of usage of ruffles and frills. This trend will be spotted in a variety of mix and match print patterns like surreal Tropicana prints, Naïve florals, hand drawn prints and jungle camouflage.
70’s is here to stay and this season it takes its cues from the seventies-inspired safari and ditsy vintage. Termed as ‘Nostalgia’ the trend encapsulates bold geometric patterns of vintage upholstery and romantic fusion of paisley inspired floral arabesques which make a grand and stylish come-back.
Soft tailoring is the highlight of this trend giving key pieces like maxi skirts, blouson and off shoulder tops and dresses a fun flouncy feel adding to the carefree yet eclectic attitude of the era. A strong look that emerges as part of this trend is the Western shirt to give oneself look a cowgirl kick which can be teamed with shorts and minis in groovy patterns and scarf inspired prints.
Silhouettes have been getting more interesting for a while now and structured is the route to take this season if one want to add a new dimension to wardrobe. Follow the ‘Rational’ trend which is a flurry of origami-like fabric folds and laser cut patterns with mathematical precision. With a touch of femininity and the influx of luxurious fabrics this trend brings together the bold and the gentle. Available in maxis and oversize tops and dresses the collection uses geometrical patterns and clean mesh like structures to create a mystifying illusion.
