Womenswear spring 15.


Denim has become the focus of attention after featuring in Burberry Prorsum’s spring 15 collection in London, and was worked into several Milan collections. Everyday jeans were roughed up with rips or elevated with luxe embellishment and appliqué, while denim dresses, cropped jackets and even denim tailoring featured at luxury houses including Gucci and Fendi.

Famous for its sexed-up glamour, Milan toned things down this season with many designers embracing lower hemlines and covered-up looks. The key idea here is the midi-length skirt, falling
on or below the knee in full A-line shapes or loose columnar silhouettes. It’s been around for a few seasons but for spring it will hit the mainstream.

Having already emerged on the catwalks of New York and London (see Tommy Hilfiger, Matthew Williamson and House of Holland), the 1970s trend was confidently confirmed in Milan and is guaranteed to influence the high street next season. The most common look was a boho, hippy girl style straight from Woodstock’s heyday. Key items include wide or flared trousers, waistcoats, cropped jackets, ponchos, silky blouses and floaty floor-skimming maxi dresses in denim, suede and trippy prints, trimmed with fringing.
