Chilly mornings and lingering winds seem to not have coordinated well with the calendar's seasonal changes. Thankfully the Spring 2017 collections of Burberry, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Céline and Stella McCartney have given us inspiration and hope for these cooler days.
Take Advantage of Sweater Weather: Designer Christopher Bailey of Burberry reimagined the traditional cable knit sweater by transforming it into a layered one-shoulder shawl. Bailey’s vision translated into a flattering silhouette despite the unconventional lines of this architectural look.
Love the Jumper: One of many essentials for early Spring weather, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of Oscar de la Renta share their love for cocktail tunics and day-to-night jumpers in their Spring 2017 collection.
Layer Up: There's no ignoring the low evening temperatures and blowing winds. The Valentino Spring 2017 collection featured a variety of floor-length trench coats to play on designer Pierpaolo Piccioli's romantic vision of complimenting lengthy gowns and flowing skirts.
Embrace a Lighter Color Palette: The Spring 2017 Céline runway was filled with earth-toned hues of white, blue, black, and brown. A soundtrack of city traffic and children’s voices played through the venue to emphasize the collection's transparency of a day in the wearer's life.
Relax in Looser Fits: Designer Stella McCartney took to light fabrics and relaxed fits with oversized jumpers, tops and trousers. A combination of full-coverage in light fabrics helps our Spring mentality embrace the last of this Winter weather.
