SS15 arrived to Brown Thomas and arrived with it exciting new colours, prints, silhouettes and trends to draw inspiration from.
The SS15 runwayÂ also seen the introduction of new labels to Brown Thomas including Oscar de la Renta, Roksanda Ilincic, David Koma and Grace MMXII to mention a few.
KickingÂ things off with David Koma… to praise the recent addition asÂ a new label to Brown Thomas. His Sports Glam influence bringsÂ a contemporary and fresh mix of feminine flirtatious silhouettes mixed with streetstyle.
Roksanda‘s pieces were also spiked with bright and conflicting pales and the use of lightweight, fluid material gave a softer more feminine edge to theÂ interpretation of Sports Glam in her collection.
Designers also looked to the mid-century for inspiration and combined flirty full skirts with crop tops. This beautiful number by Preen encapsulates the notion of mid-century modern in a flirtatious and elegant way, with emphasis on the waist.
Florals in all their variations were blooming on the runway but lightweight dresses in floating layers were my favourite incorporation of the concept. This Erdem number really stole the show for me.
Mary Katrantzou‘s prints were as big and bold as ever…
Designers like Gucci and Valentino celebrated a 1970’s Renaissance. Both designers revisited 70’s silhouettes, prints and motifs yet kept the mood sexy, relaxed and playful. Valentino embraced the trend with graceful tunics…
This belted Gucci Guna resembles 70’sÂ retro-style..
Whilst thisÂ delicate chiffon Chloe number infuses 70’s festival with hippy chic.
Celine’s rich bohemian nod revelled under the fashion spotlight with 70’s inspired flares mixed with raw frayed edges and chunky platforms.
Victoria Beckham opted for a Monastic Zen in her SS15 collection. The understated neutrals exuded the message of purity and timelessness in an elongated silhouette.
And finally.. The best for last. The Showstoppers. Dark romanticism made a lasting impression in the Givenchy SS15 collection and these over-the-knee, leather, lace up boots caused a stir of whispers among the fashion elite at the show. Supposedly a sample pair, there is only a few floating around the globe and these were sent straight back to the designer after the show. A pair of these, made to order, would set you back about â¬2,000!
