MEMORIES FROM THE TRENCHES
Created at the beginning of the 20th century as a military coat - and popularized in the 50s - the trench coat seems to never go out of style. This time brands like Céline and Balenciaga reinterpret it: light, waterproof and with a contemporary and updated silhouette.

90s
Rewind back to an era where natural beauty and photographs without retouching reigned supreme. Salvatore Ferragamo is cool again, while Calvin Klein gave us 90s nostalgia through their advertising campaigns. Say hello again to chokers, denim and bell-shaped trousers.

PRINTS
Less is not always more: An ideology that designers like Dolce & Gabbana, and the master of heavy patterns, Alessandro Michele, make clear. The key to styling your outlandish prints is to complement the boldness with blocks of color.

STRIPES
Both horizontal and vertical lines are still a staple in fashion, as seen on both the Haute Couture and ready-to-wear runways. 

SPORTSWEAR
Yes, fashion is still remaining comfortable, however this season, we saw more elegant takes on athletic wear. 

PASTELS
If there has been a constant at fashion shows this season, it is pastel colors. We saw the several ice cream colored pieces in the form of dresses, pants, and accessories. 

NECKLINE
With the summer heat on the horizon, there's never been a better time to bring excitement to your wardrobe. Start with the neck, which highlights the horizontal lines and natural angles of the body.

 

FLORALS
What would spring be without flowers? This season, fashion houses were inspired by flora, escaping typical clichés by subverting the print into new and exciting silhouettes.

LINGERIE
Underwear has become outerwear! Go for a bralette with seductive detail, a bodysuit tucked into trousers or for a slip dress that carries the same elegance as an evening gown.

DENIM
Each season, designers discover new ways to use denim. This time, they departed from formalities and focused on color.
