SS14- The Dark Side

When you think of the Spring/Summer months I bet you think of bright whites and colorful hues, and, of course, you wouldn’t be wrong, but for some designers their shows for SS14 took on a much darker take on dressing for the warmer months.

Lanvin, for example, with it’s dimly lit stage saw a sea of darker, metallic hues mixed with only a few pops of colour (think burnt orange, mustard and violet), and of course, classic black. This collection may not have been as light and bright as other collections, but the glistening fabrics and metallic hues were a refreshing take on SS14, representing glamour, confidence and luxury in a surprisingly easy to wear manner!

And what about at Louis Vuitton? Marc Jacobs claimed that while incorporating white into the collection was an option, the truth is that everybody does still love to wear black or navy, whatever the season, and so a very dark collection emerged (not forgetting a hint of blue denim). And with a collection like this, I think I’m convinced that  bejeweled lace black frock over Spring/Summer is a definite must have!

I’m the biggest advocate for wearing bright colours , but these bejewelled beauties and glittering hues may have just convinced me that black is back for SS14…but whose to say I won’t add a bright chunky necklace to bring even more life into the once boring black?
