JUMPSUITS

The jumpsuit has never looked this good. The flight-suit-inspired one-piece has a sleek new iteration — a polished, tailored silhouette with luxe suit fabrication, the perfect throw on- and-go outfit for the urban guy on the move. Salvatore Ferragamo and Valentino present belted, slim-fit trousers, combined with the perfect shirt in one package. This utilitarian trend is pragmatic style at its best.

CHECKMATE

Check prints will never go out of style. This season’s classic check, windowpane, herringbone, and Glen plaid check clash and complement each other in colour and pattern — all in a single outfit. It’s a season of graphic squares at Lacoste, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci, so expect to wear these motifs from head to toe.

STONE-WASHED

Cream, clay-inspired hues are the quintessential cool shades for summer. Crisp linens and effortless layering will keep you cool — in every sense of the word. Tonal combinations of white, cream, and sandy hues may lack in colour, but as Giorgio Armani, Valentino, and Dries van Noten prove, the stone-washed look is the most understated sartorial trend of the season.

CAMOUFLAGE

Camo is back — and this time Valentino, Dries van Noten, and Givenchy make a case for a traditional army print that kicks it up a notch with outerwear emblazoned with graffiti and embroidered detailing.

WALK THE LINE

Walk the line this spring by mixing and matching varying stripes. Vertical stripes in tonal hues prove a strong favourite, with Fendi showcasing a delectable combination of olive, aubergine, and cream stripes worn from head to toe, bag included. For a go-to look, take a hint from Salvatore Ferragamo with a cream-and-khaki-striped pairing.

LUXE UTILITY

The great outdoors meets luxury in a big way this season. Take the road less travelled and wear graphic-printed windbreakers, nylon shorts, and walking sandals, because, according to the likes of Prada, Moncler Gamme Bleu, and Lanvin, the hiking aesthetic is more of a necessity than ever.

NEW SHIRTING

Gone are the days of a simple, button-down shirt. In 2017, the perennial white shirt defies tradition with seasonal iterations, offering a breath of fresh air to a wardrobe staple. Designers at Victoria Beckham, Off-white, and Alexander Wang show off their sartorial finesse by making the shirt more of a statement than ever before.

PEEK-A-BOO

Flirty meets feminine in this season’s sheer dresses, with layers of chiffon, mesh, and fine lace fabrics cleverly constructed to simultaneously reveal and conceal, hinting at depths of endless allure. Play hide-and-seek in floor-sweeping dresses in see-through midnight fabrics, layered, embroidered, and embellished in just the right places, as seen at Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Valentino, and Dolce & Gabbana.

IN BLOOM

Spring’s cardinal botanical print has a cool new attitude to match the mood of the season. Enter the garden of bold blossoming bouquets — attention-grabbing, large, red poppies on the coats at Gucci and feminine rose-covered dresses at Dolce & Gabbana.
