LACE IS HAVING A MOMENT AND WE’VE SPOTTED THE SEASON-CROSSED SIGHT. SHAPE SHIFTING IS THE SPECIAL MARK UNDER WHICH A LACY PIECE TAKES THE SEE-THROUGH LOOK WELL BEYOND A GUISE.
Fall lace goes see-through with a lengthy Victorian walk. Valentino and Alexander McQueen take on the tale with lace cuts and collars that rise to the dark side of romance while Dolce & Gabbana pretty-up their lacy voice with a scalloped hemline and rounded school girl collar. She walks demure at Alexandre Vauthier, Altuzarra and Rochas with an equal spirit of this season’s femme fatale. Sheer white premonitions at Marc Jacobs and Rodarte keep lace light in form and for all bodysuit lovers; Balmain swoops in a racy set of layered lines for a see-through Monday.
Resort 2016 keeps up the lace with amped wearability and ease. Tailoring shows subtle-strong variations as in Balenciaga’s lacy pencil skirt paired with a double breasted wool coat while a see-through lace shirt dress at Moschino can go as uncovered or covered-up as you wish. Gucci and Blumarine keep a subtle slant with a girly sense of innocence. It’s hard to resist bohemian chic among the lacy talk as the lengthy layers call in Alberta Ferreti, Chloé and Burberry. Pastels at Calvin Klein and Vionnet take lace into causal separates and the sheer lace legs are already calling out a million and one options for resort season’s city-to-beach switch.
We’re feeling spring 2016 go free and cropped. A tinge of prep catches Michael Kors Collection and Burberry while off-the-shoulder urban hippies ease out at Chloé, Erdem and Emilio Pucci. The laced technicolor mood keeps up at Christopher Kane, while glam rock at Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton goes optic in black and while. A complete body wrapped look at J.W. Anderson takes a lacy diffusion into a new territory altogether as the see-through spectrum crosses new corners, lace gets unwound.
