Spring/Summer Trends: Heavy Embellishments

From Prada bejeweled dresses to Louis Vuitton black embellishments, we have seen a lot of chunky beads at spring/summer shows. Marni collection features some heavily embellished sportswear and Christopher Bailey’s collection for Burberry included some incredible pieces studded with chunky jewels. This season’s novelty are big sparkly rocks, even though some designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Marc Jacobs and Jenny Packham decided to stick to more subtle embellishments. Simone Rocha used big white pearls and stitched them to collars, handbags, shoes and even socks, while Dolce & Gabbana covered their dresses in golden coins and yellow jewels.

Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2014

For this collection Roksanda Ilincic used warm and colorful blanket-like fabrics. They are mixed together in unexpected ways creating a wonderfully vivid winter color palette which includes blue, turquoise, orange, fuchsia, red, orange, purple and brown. Clothes are impeccably tailored and color contrasts are very appealing. She used a lot of patchwork technique to stitch together pieces of fabric in different colors.

Coats and dresses have loose, asymmetric silhouettes that look very comfortable and yet elegant. Even some of the evening dresses are done in wooly fabrics, and they sometimes look like the body is wrapped in a very pretty blanket. The others are made from satin which is embellished with chunky beads.

The collection also features fabulous clutches made out of two-colored wool and flat shoes as well as heels with vintage herring-bone pattern, which she also used for dresses and coats.
