Leather, fishnet and latex are the key fabrics for this trend.

Leather

The garments are designed in a way so that these materials are wearable for the spring / summer seasons. Gladiator sandals, armour like jewelry and accessories, along with chain and metal garments (featured on opposite page) are all key pieces for this trend. Through the collaboration of the fabrics and cuts, not only is ultimate protection being provided, but an edgy style that is exactly on trend.

Animal prints and textures, polka dots, stripes, bright colours and tie-dye are only some of the key elements to anything goes. To name every material and colour would be simply impossibly as it would include pretty much everything!



   

The key pieces display some crazy items from which inspiration to be different should be taken. For colours; the brighter the better, and for materials; the more different they are, the more desirable! Use everything as inspiration and rule out nothing!

Organic cotton is a key material for this trend as it is an eco-friendly material, contributing to saving our planet.

Organic cotton

Silk and chiffon both resemble elements of nature. They are weightless materials for the summer seasons, which look and feel luxurious. Key pieces include wooden wedges, long chiffon gowns in floral colours, plant imitating jewelry and accessories, and simple garments with structure that is obviously influenced by nature, like the tulip shaped skirt.
