“Trends from this year’s runway shows were consistent with what we anticipated,” said Lizzy Bowring, Fashion Director at Stylesight. “The updated take on prints, silhouettes, and use of fabrics we saw across the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris confirmed our forecast leading into Spring/Summer 2014 fashion week.”
Stylesight identified the following key themes from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections:
Mathematical Precision: Sharp, geometric lines and asymmetric shapes by way of clean tailoring through tucking, folding and pleating created new dimensions in a color scheme dominated by white, black, porcelain neutrals and metallics.
Aquatic Inspired Style: An oceanic theme emerged by way of flowing, ethereal silhouettes across a blue color scheme from pale blue to cobalt to indigo inclusive of greens and yellows.
Safari Luxe: A comprehensive interpretation of soft safari, desert and tribal looks inspired by exotic travel in the form of scenic landscapes and updated animal prints in blues, bright pinks, reds, greens and turquoise arose on the runways.
Key Materials: An ode to couture appeared through the use of duchess satins, fluid georgettes, exquisite brocades, lace and an abundance of sparkling embellishment; technical fabrics like neoprene and jersey; cottons and linen blends; laser cut and perforated leather; metallics in shimmering shades of gold and tinted hues and dark indigo denim were among the most prominent materials and combination of textures in the collections.
Must-haves: The key-ticket items that dominated the collections include: midriff baring tops; wide-leg shorts and trousers – both cropped and full length; pleated tea-length skirts; mid-calf pencil skirts; sweater dressing; tee-shaped blouses; collarless coats; and biker jackets.
