Pieces from Joe Fresh s/s 2017 collection

2. French-inspired casuals

From the fragrant flower fields of Grasse to the birthplace of denim in Nimes, the relaxed spirit of the French countryside imbues Joe Fresh’s spring collection with an easy sense of style. Dresses, blouses and scarves are the fluid canvas for painterly floral prints, signaling the bloom of springtime romance. The mood is heightened by flourishes of feminine ruffles and soft flounces on shoulder-baring silhouettes.

Wear-to-work essentials are part of the everyday mix in pencil skirts, tailored pants and office-friendly dresses.

With its modern mix of soft silhouettes, bold pattern and delicate details, the spring season channels poetic French style at its best.

Inspired by the spirit of France, a cool joie de vivre imbues summer 2017 with bold color, playful pattern and inspired detail. Vibrant market stripes and painterly tropical prints bring the warmth of the Mediterranean coastline alive in linen, lace-up shirts and lightweight jersey. The season starts with a nod to the port of Marseilles, where bandana prints, tiered sundresses and contrast embroidery elements are the essence of effortless style.

The journey continues to the surfside resort of Biarritz and a story told in cabana stripes and warm weather essentials, from roll-up shorts to lightweight cardigans. Throughout the season, understated details like crinkle pleats, open-stitch knits and hints of shimmer bring a simple elegance to fabrics, helping make every summer day a stylish escape from ordinary.

The oversized perspective of the set reinforces the extraordinarily mesmerising power of nature,” said Sandra Choi, Creative Director.

Photographed by Peter Lindebergh and starring models Lily Aldridge, Andres Velencoso and McKenna Hellam, the vibrant portfolio was lensed on location in Taormina, Sicily. And it is in this spectacular resort town perched on the Mediterranean where a series of vignettes unfold.

Conveying the kind of affinity and confidence only friends could possess, the trio is spotted along Taormina’s dramatic coast or meandering down its bougainvillea-lined paths. These stolen moments capture the modern yet refined mood of the Women’s and Men’s Spring 2017 collections, the former being the first designed by Fulvio Rigoni, the new head of women’s ready-to-wear.

In one image, Lily, wearing one of the collection’s feminine fluted hem dresses, and McKenna, in a sporty navy shirt with matching slouchy trousers, make their way through a lush garden.

In the Philippines, Salvatore Ferragamo is located at Greenbelt 4, Newport Mall, Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La, and Solaire Resort & Casino.

7. Eyelets, pompoms, appliqué roses

Marking the launch of its spring 2017 collection, Kate Spade New York wowed its loyal patrons with mysterious visions of the dusky desert, sweet Moroccan mint tea by TWG Tea, and sultry belly dancers who set the tone and spirited rhythm for the evening’s festivities. The night was a fitting homage to the historic cultural capital, as the romantic ambience transported guests to an oasis of calm in the Majorelle Gardens.

Held last March, Kate Spade New York offered guests – including Miss World 2013 Megan Young –an exotic escape where they could relax, sit back, and revel at the new luxe pieces from the latest collection.

Moving away from trends of the past, Kate Spade New York playfully explored the philosophy “more is more” in design. The pieces–in an extravagant display of color and print–boasted a meticulous eye for detail with textured fabrics and a flourish of eyelets, pompoms, appliqué roses and ruffles that sat softly on flowing, feminine silhouettes. It was a celebration of femininity, as well as a reflection of the universality of Kate Spade New York.

8. New York style

If you’ve been to New York, you’ve felt it. It’s the unmistakable vibrancy and kinetic energy of our city’sstreets—the place where hierarchies fade and together we stride fearlessly to and from. Our campaigndepicts a contemporary DKNY heroine, Bella Hadid, darting through midtown Manhattan on a vividspring day. Pensive yet confident, powerful yet ever-shifting, she is like her city an icon of strength and resilience. To the unknowing, she might be just a girl on the street. But to us, she rises like a New York star ascendant.

Lounging with classic American vintage cars amid a field of wildflowers in Liberty State Park, Chloë Grace Moretz appears in the new Coach New York Spring 2017 campaign with the city skyline behind her. Shot by long-time Coach collaborator Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer, Moretz embodies the brand’s love of Americana style. 

With her hair blowing in the wind, Moretz personifies American cool, the spirit of independence and a distinctly New York attitude. Draping a leather jacket over her soft prairie floral dress, she mixes romantic Southwestern fringing with the toughness of biker leather. This season’s Swagger and Edie bags come in muted shades of pink while the Drifter appears in a chalk white. Inspired by the eclectic craft of Santa Fe, bags are embellished with custom-made rivets and studs, a rich mix of semiprecious stones and genuine snakeskin details—a nod to the American West. Sheer printed dresses are accessorized with stacked printed silk scarves and heavy off-duty creepers made for exploring the city by foot. 

Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers says, “Chloë has a sense of optimism that is the perfect juxtaposition to the New York City backdrop, Coach’s home city. Chloë’s ease and effortlessness of style feels relevant and very Coach.”

9. '80s pop

This season, Diesel takes a trip to the city of Miami, where there’s enough fun and sunshine for everyone.

“Miami is a place I've always admired for its art culture, art déco architecture and beach lifestyle,” reveals Artistic Director Nicola Formichetti. “We have the Pelican Hotel here too so it’s a part of our history.”

 I’m inspired by the uplifting, 80s pop colors every time I visit. I wish the entire world was like Miami during summer.” 

Spring-summer is all about a high-energy cocktail of pastel tones, Memphis styling and pool party atmosphere. Flamingos appear as dramatic 3D knitwear and a statement plush toy stole. Polka dots and love-hearts decorate 50s-silhouette skirts and shirts, with 80s-inspired cartoon speech bubbles printed on pajamas and dresses.

A collaboration with graphic designer Yoko Honda also draws on the 80s, including swimwear in nostalgic palm tree prints and good-time beach graphics.

Oversized rivets are this season’s punchy hardware story, in pure metal or a mix of metallic colors. The cut-outs stamp everything from sweatshirts to t-shirt dresses, women’s high-heeled sandals to this season’s collectible bags.

For the first time in Diesel’s history, pink shirts, jackets and pants are offered for men, whilst the classic '90s rainbow stripe is revived on navy or black bomber jackets. Beyond color-pop jeans and woven and treated zip-round sneakers, this denim story is bleached-out, reflecting a relaxed summer vibe and easy party spirit.

10. ‘Techpacks’

For spring/summer 2017, Gucci launches a series of bag designs that includes several brand new models and fresh versions of three classic styles. All feature the type of decorative treatment that the house has made its own – an eclectic mix of motifs, materials and graphics.

In keeping with creative director Alessandro Michele’s fascination with animals, the key bag design for the season, the Broche, features a shiny brass fox head, with eyes of Swarovski crystal, or pearls. All versions have a distinctive, rich, shiny gold-finished metal chain shoulder strap. A top handle model in shiny, smooth calf leather has a Gucci bamboo handle, referencing a historical feature of the house, and a reptile-skin detail on the flap. Brass studs outline the entire shape. Another top handle version is characterised by a bi-colour petal design on the flap and comes in both snakeskin and GG Supreme material. In addition, lobsters and helm French wire embroidered patches stand out on the surface of this style creating an unexpected complement to the fox heads. Finally, there is a smaller, white shoulder bag with a chain strap and a flap decorated with the petal design, which is here enriched with details in snakeskin. This style features an additional torchon strap.

Undoubtedly, backpacks are enjoying a renaissance at the moment. Gucci launches the techpack – a backpack in the purple Rinascimento brocade featuring a feline head and the House web. Additional models include a small flat drawstring backpack with torchon shoulder strap and frontal pocket in green glazed Rinascimento brocade, embellished with a rich bow covered with yellow Swarovski crystals, and, in a larger size, backpacks that combine different brocades and the application of text reading ‘modern future’. All drawstring backpacks are provided with leather top handles.

As well as new styles, Gucci continues to evolve its classics: the Dionysus comes as a chain bag trimmed with exotic snakeskin and a top handle with bamboo handle and floral motif in stripes; the Sylvie top handle comes in a surprising green jacquard brocade with multi-coloured flowers, and a mini version in white leather with an extra blue-red-white torchon shoulder strap; the GG Marmont now comes as a large briefcase and medium-sized shoulder bag in quilted jacquard brocade, and, in the briefcase style, a quilted leather featuring a trompe l’oeil print.
