Arriving at the end of our Spring 2015 fashion weeks, let’s see how this season fared as a whole. There were a lot of trends that I’m not into like loud patterns, a lot of dull earth tones, boring silhouettes, It was a weak season for a lot of the big labels, Chanel and Louis Vuitton both presenting pieces that were too boring to even talk about. But there were also solid collections from Dior and Rodarte, two houses I have had issues with for a while now. Overall, this wasn’t a strong season, yet there were still some outstanding collections that made it worth our attention. Here are the final four that I enjoyed this week – see you here again for Fall 2015!
Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2015
Vintage-y dresses in bright primary colours! Bold make up! Futuristic headpieces with veils! This is a whole lot of springtime pretty.
Elie Saab Spring 2015
Out of all the red carpet mainstays, Elie Saab is by far the most talented. These are beautiful, intricately detailed gowns with enough uniqueness to make them stand out from the herd of flowly dresses that appear during Award Season.
Iris van Herpen Spring 2015
This is definitely one of my favorite collections of the season. This 3D printer was made for artists like Iris van Herpen. The shoes look like an frozen explosion, the dresses are protective structures, the detailing is tiny thorns. The delicateness of these pieces is in it’s innate defensiveness, and the contradiction is a perfect metaphor for what it means to be a woman in today’s culture.
Valentino Spring 2015
As of late Valentino has delievered some beautiful, delicate dresses, with gorgeous prints on gauzy fabrics. This season this house went with the bold, earth toned patterns trend but remained true to these past collections with laser cut lace white dresses perfect for the Spring.
