In 2014, Christopher Kane presented his collection at the New York Fashion Week — it was all about creativity and artfulness. As usual, Kane made a provocative statement playing with nylon while creating new forms. The pink dress located in the right part of the image belonged to that collection. The sleeve is a long wave that surrounds the arm completely, and it had never been seen by anyone before.
Three years later, we see that this form has evolved into a tulip. More than that, the tulip shape is now a trend.
During the 2016 New York Fashion Week a lot of designers have presented their collections with this specific characteristic.
The Venezuelan designer, Carolina Herrera, incorporated this shape to her collection. She presented a series of strapless long dresses and skirts with floral prints that had the tulip form from waist down. The innovative thing? She also played with blue jeans — another clear statement of today’s fashion.
Moreover, Kaftan Usman was another designer who took possession of the petal trend. His collection displayed a variety of long skirts and pants with horizontal stripes in pastel colors. He also incorporated a vibrant orange to one of his sets. All of the pieces included the tulip form — no exception.
Moreover, here are a few trends that I’m sure you will like to incorporate into your spring wardrobe.
As it can be seen, spring 2017 is synonymous with light blue, stripes and waistlines. Recently, fashion has gone to the 80’s and came back; now everything is about waist training and asymmetrical outfits. Once again we can see how trends change and evolve — always keeping their essence.
Next week, I will share a couple of outfits ideas using these trends!
