The show, as expected, was on the mark: relaxed (note: prominent) feminine detailing took the helm and went alongside tailored garments that spoke of rakish easiness rather than classical stiffness. The occasional folio and handbag made its way onto the runway, while gowns of diaphanous aspect set the pace for an air of unexpected elegance. For the "boho-broads" among us, this collection gave a (slight) nod in that direction by way of oversized bangles. Although aesthetically pleasing, I often wondered if the looks would have benefited better if the models wore 1 for each arm. In any case, a few ensembles in lace and semi-transparent garments were definitely on-trend elements to take note of as well. Ready for a dose of more floral dominance? Below is one such look that illustrates this nicely:
This very much reminds me of that s/s Jil Sander collection in 2011 (where I first got a taste of those boisterous floral prints). Fun stuff!
The selection of footwear, too, proved solid and was a defining element that kept the show cohesive. It's definitely a good refresher when you consider all the girls I see with nude pumps and structured jackets. While I like that look, its ultimately becoming way too hackneyed to keep its appeal. Considering how wildly refined these heels look, however, they may become the next mainstay and I'm almost certain that they'll find a home in the closets of many girls.

Have a great day!
