Fashion Trend Report Spring & Summer 2015: Retro Style
Ready-to-Wear fashion shows SS 2015 saw so many outfits with a vintage flare – well-constructed dresses, flared skits and so on – that I just cannot get it round.
Retro style dresses were spotted in collections of Maticevski, Christian Dior SS 2015 (which is no surprise), Bally, Co, Michael Kors and others.
Why do vogue designers constantly lean on fashion of the past? Perhaps the point is that women of 1960-s dressed elegant and looked more feminine. I wonder is it really possible for designer to try to reinvent the wheel in this sense and make something absolutely new taking into consideration the fact that one of their main tasks of style is to perfect a female figure and smooth imbalances as much as possible by means of clothing? What skirt but a flare one can round hips better? And when did they started wearing it? That’s right, in the ’60s. Retro as it is.
Commenting on the new collection for spring 2015, Barbara Tfank said: I was inspired by women’s connection to nature and their feminine energy.
Short skirts accompanied by chignons were trendy in the early 1970’s. My mom used to stuff her hair with stockings so that hairdo looked high. Sure, now we enjoy more modern technics & technologies to achieve same result.
If you had doubts that Jeremy Scott’s Moschino is cute, the last show couldn’t but killed them when live Barbies dressed like they used to in the 1960s’ crowded the showroom.
You could see there all – from a huge comb made of plastic, a gigantic platinum blond wig, a fuchsia leather jacket combined with an unbelievably short skirt to a pool-floaty Chanel bag and roller skates.
It was a cool Barbie’s birthday party – the doll was invented 55 years ago. Since then she’s worn almost every outfit and has had every job in the world.
The same txt you see in the right photo was on Jeremy Scott’s T-shirt:

In addition to the checks, which, in fact, is a variation of pattern, print design will embrace floral, geometric and ethno ones. Highly popular over the last three or four seasons leopard print has gone from the fashion catwalks this spring.
Veronica Etro’s new collection is about making things by hand on your own – sewing, cutting, braiding and embellishing. It was also about a Bohemian ease. If a sense the collection reflected the style of life she prefers. Commenting on the show Etro said that she was not that interested in festivals and gatherings. Instead, as she put it, “I am inspired by the energy that arises from being close to nature in its wildest state”.
Beautiful flowers bloomed on the Blumarine dresses. In spring and summer 2015 if you will be talking about Blumarine, you’ll surely mean flowers, and if you will be talking about flowers, you’ll mean Blumarine. We certainly do not believe that a translucent dress on the left is wearable, but it is so beautiful that we show it to you anyway:
The Dsquared2 team – twins Dean and Dan Caten – added geometric and abstract prints on slouchy pants, skirts and sweatshirts.
Despite being a newcomer in the business, lots of jet setters call Italian-Haitian designer Stella Jean a rising star with a recognizable and nonstandard approach to fashion. For spring and summer 2015 Stella made prints that reflect brightly colored Haitian scenes and put them on dresses and skirts:
There were so many marvelous prints on the spring 2015 catwalks that it is absolutely impossible to show them all. In addition to aforesaid patterns I saw stripes, polka dot and fruit prints.
So buy the summer dresses of any length with any pattern you like. The only thing you should bear in mind is that prints visually expand expands horizontal dimensions even more than white color does. So buying such clothes opt for a printed top if you have a pear-shaped body and choose a printed skirt or pants if your body type is inverted triangle.
And that’s will be it.
