Key colours:

BOLD BLUES: Bold blues are back for spring and we love the vibrant injection of colour! This season we are seeing bright synthetic shades give denim a high-end feel with saturated azures and solid sky blue tones adding a contemporary direction. You can wear your denim together as an on-trend coordinated look if you’re ready to make a statement!

COSMETIC TONES: We love these feminine cosmetic tones and they are ideal to let your inner girlie girl show! Cosmetic tones evolve for S/S 16 and are seen in light, powdery, slightly pink-tinged hues while being worked into silks, sheer georgettes and lightweight knits.

CORAL: Turn heads this spring with vibrant hues of red-orange and coral. These colours look great in casual tanks, blouses and dresses, especially when paired with a faux tan and nude accessories.

KHAKI: Continuing on from autumn and winter, Khaki has emerged in a variety of shades for the new warmer season. Golden olive and dark avocado tones are key for spring 2016 and look great when clashed with classic whites, greys and pinks.

Key styles: 

OFF-SHOULDER: Off-the-shoulder styles are just what you need to show off a little skin and still look sophisticated! This style is back again this season and is shown in loose boho-style tops and dresses.

SHIRT DRESS: For a style you can just slip on any time of the day and night, look to the shirt dress. This season the key look is straight shirt dresses with oversized shapes and buttoned collars for a masculine take. Denim and chambray are a popular choice and lend a versatile and casual appeal while crisp cottons are great for a more timeless look.

COORDINATING SEPARATES: This look is re-vamped for spring with the introduction of a matching top and pant set. Pant styles are relaxed and carefree, creating a somewhat sporty and more casual style than we are used to, not that we are complaining! Style variations include girlie brushed silk or satin fabrics, matching chambray separates or more sporty style two-pieces.

SUMMER TRENCH: In order to layer in style this season, you have to choose a stylish summer trench. This ageless style has been re-vamped with double buckle belts, oversized patched pockets and unstructured silhouettes. Pair your summer trench with with jumpsuits, mini dresses or matching top and pant combinations.

CRAFTED MESH CROCHET AND KNIT MESH TECHNIQUES:  These bohemian styles are a staple during the summer season and are seen in everything from long column dresses and tanks to fresh, open and light knitwear styles.

THE MINI SKIRT: If you want to show a little leg this spring, this is the style you need. Hemlines are continuing to rise for S/S 16, with designers around the world focusing on short and sexy silhouettes with a party-girl attitude. Designers use exaggerated splits and splicing for a sensual appearance, while leather and suede add a tough-femme edge to these youthful silhouettes.

ROMANTIC BLOUSE: One of our all-time wardrobe staples is a romantic blouse and this season they are back. The trend for this season is all about delicate and gentle silhouettes, driven by historical references and a sense of romantic nostalgia. For spring, the romantic blouse features high-cut necklines, sheer lace trims and light fabrications resulting in a beautifully feminine look
