Forget the basics and bring on the glamour is the spring motto of casual lifestyle designers. They’re determined to beat the tough economy with vibrant collections that give consumers a reason to buy, featuring looks reminiscent of vintage Hollywood, with touches of metallics, sequins, satin and looped French terry cloth robes and tunics that channel poolside divas of yesteryear. The forecast also calls for a rainbow of colors and shades including soft pastels, jewel-tone brights, colorblocking and a panoply of prints. A common current among many collections: details, from sequins and beads to touches of lace and embroidery.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
