Some of the trends for next season, make us think of a much more comfortable, light and colourful fashion, a fashion that manages to give us back that freedom and “lightness” that we have been fighting to achieve in recent times!
And here, on the catwalks of New York, London, Milan and Paris, clothes inspired by lingerie, satin petticoats and the minutes associated with baby dolls, remind us of the intimate and relaxed atmosphere of boudoirs.

Bras and bralettes in sight, for a free and unusual summer, worn over very wide skirts or snooty as tops under jackets, coming out of a dress or glimpsed under subtle shirts!

White lace, traditional or futuristic (the laser cut), with large or embossed designs and very openwork. Purity and brilliance are the sensations that inspire us!

A bit of lightness with the trimmed pieces that leave the navel exposed. 90’s cotton tops and micro blouses with scenic sleeves to give next season, a dose of freshness and delicate femininity that we like so much.

The same goes for the hot pants, which are comfortable, fast and sensual. From the classic high-waisted garments of the 50’, to the straight or lapel balloon shapes for day and night wear.

Eccentric, fun and colourful patchwork art, which immediately makes you think about creative reuse. A mosaic with the right balance of aesthetics in the most refined, with fragments of animal prints combined with floral patterns, micro and macro dots combined with geometric designs in a lively and animated mix & match.

Focus on shoulders and sleeves that are wide, mini, maxi or even extra large balloon shaped.

The flounces and frills, which give movement and lightness, embody today more than ever the desire to start over and live a more carefree life. And here the designers have placed them, from neck to hem, in long pastel-coloured dresses.

And for the evening, temptations in black and white with two-tone dresses; always a fascinating contrast, a chromatic antithesis that attracts by its sophisticated elegance, a game of empty and full that never ceases to please.
