Spring/ Summer 2016 is one of the brightest and most exciting seasons we've seen in a very long time (in fashion terms, approx. 3-4 seasons). We've been inundated with minimalist 'normcore' trends since 2013 and SS16 was the designers' chance to embrace the new and incorporate a sense of humour into their collections. (See Alessandro Michele's "Gucci Girl" for a perfect example).
The 'new' includes everything from unusual bright colours and a range of futuristic textures. It's not relying on one specific era or reference this time round; SS16 is taking a nod from an array of them. Whether it's 1970's suede and florals, 1990's Girl Power stompers or futuristic mesh and metallics, it's a season for everyone of all aesthetics - a season to experiment and a season to have fun with.
