Summer 18 Collection

Summer 18 Collection

DVF Summer 18 collection is a range of day-focused clothes with an air of romance and nostalgia.

The inspiration is from the color palette – combine and surround bright prints and textile designs with neutral earthy colors. Imagining hazy summer days; interiors of wicker and tapestries; bias cut ribbons of silk draped over the body, and the eccentricity and the free spirit of a musician on the road.

She is a woman with purpose; sensual and free-spirited, yet strong and with intention.

COACH X DISNEY :: PRE-FALL 2018 CAPSULE COLLECTION

Two American visionaries and global originals join forces for Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale. The special-edition collection subverts classic Disney Princess tales with a dark and romantic twist on Coach ready-to-wear and leather goods. Found and styled within the brand’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection, the pieces play with spooky undertones and the tension of nostalgic Disney animations to create a halo collection for the season inspired by an American gothic fairy tale of New York.

This collaboration recontextualizes unexpected motifs from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty—think dark and dreamy castles, poisoned apples and wide-eyed woodland creatures—for a play to the edgier, darker side. Retro t-shirts with rock-and-roll fonts and a nostalgic color palette are styled with tough moto jackets, while Coach’s recognizable signature print is enhanced with darker graphics and bold leather detailing for an unexpected juxtaposition. The collection also showcases authentic Coach American sportswear – jersey hoodies, sneakers and fanny packs with Disney inspired patches and embellishments. In a nod to the storytellers of Disney and the craftsmanship synonymous with Coach, a special storypatch was made to commemorate the collection.

Mixing the irreverent with the iconic, Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale has launched in Coach stores. Select stores will house the collaboration in a uniquely designed Disney-inspired castle, re-imagined with a darker feel with corrugated metal and bright purple detailing.

Ports 1961 – Spring/Summer 2018 Womenswear

Blending the masculine with elegance – an homage to travel

This season, Ports 1961 sets its focus on footwear that is inspired by the joys and excitement of travel. The collection is a perfect example of bringing together the designs of what we typically think of as menswear and womenswear. Pointed slip-on sneakers are realized with hues of vibrant colours, including tomato red, ocean blue, bright yellow and lush green; meanwhile, traditional gentlemen’s shoes are transformed into gender-neutral checked sandals, which are surprisingly fun but give a sense of tranquility. The low-heeled design also exudes a feeling of levity and freedom that is the motto of every modern-day traveler.

ZARA SS’18 COLLECTION

Zara’s Spring Summer ’18 collection presents an exotic adventure this season. The relaxed silhouettes with the playful use of patterns and hues reflected in the pieces capture the mood of spring and summer by the Pacifics. 2018 marks the second year in collaboration with renowned American fashion photographer Steven Meisel and his creative team. Zara worked closely with his team to create an astonishing womenswear campaign to deliver the essence of the collection.

The Women’s Collection redefines vacation wear, from the geometric patterns reminiscent of summer in the 60’s coexisting with African inspired vibrant colours, to the use of natural materials like linen combined with various soft patterned fabrics to create a more relaxed look. Knitted garments in bright colours and scarves knotted at the head are one of the collection’s game changers. The designs are reflected in the garments with voluminous shoulders and wrap-around dresses. This season, Zara’s new women’s collection will take you through a daring journey from Africa to Tahiti.

 

The Zara Men’s Collection puts together a minimal but versatile wardrobe, unleashing sophisticated, styled men on the streets. The mono-colour looks of satin garments, and soft and light fabrics will be appropriate throughout the season. We will also see an array of colours ranging from vibrant yellow to pastel shades that will accentuate the seasonal trend with different quality prints.

The application of both women and men collections uses subversive and unexpected combinations of vibrant/pastel colours matched with unique prints. Seen in its playful rendition with different materials and style, it makes an audacious statement for the commercial season ahead.
