by Amanda ZeiglerThe Show: Whit
The Theme: Scandinavian simplicity with natural splendor and style.
The Color Palette: Focusing primarily on a natural palette of rich browns and neutral whites and creams, Whit infused pops of teal, blue and metallic in some of its looks.
The Collection’s Signature Look: Models, with hair braided into perfect Scandinavian updos and simple makeup of petal colored lips gave the impression of fresh-faced maidens. Paired with Whit’s easy silhouettes and natural appeal, there was hardly a look that one wouldn’t want to wear. Standouts styles included a teal long-sleeved silk jumpsuit with pleated waist details and skinny tapered legs, as well as a simple black wool shirt matched up with brown print tapered leg silk pants.
The Show: Desigual
The Theme: Spread the love- of life, of style and of mixing graphic patterns with rich textures.
The Color Palette: Graphic prints of black and white were easily complimented by deep shades of red, burgundy, orange and blues. In a variety of textures- lace, mohair, wool and silk, these rich hues were a perfect match for each other.
The Collection’s Signature Look: As models danced, skipped and blew kisses down the runway, love was certainly in the air. True love of the collection came in amazing maxi-dresses in a mix of prints and colors- especially an asymmetrical cap-sleeved silk maxi, with a cartoon caricature of a Twiggy-like face. Beautiful and bold, my heart was stolen by Desigual.
