We saw Studio 54’s influence in styles ranging from flared jumpsuits at Versace to pure bohemian vibes at Valentino and Christian Dior. 70s style has made a huge impact on the catwalks. The hard-edged aesthetics of the 70s have gained traction in the shows last fall and the spring shows this past month.
The cultural impact of globalization is showing on the runways. Armani took inspiration from China and Japan, using iconic bamboo as his central theme. Chanel’s tropical island pulled us into the fantasy of a natural state with less technology. Major designers seemed to have safari in mind with less roughing it and more upscale, adventurous spirit.
This season, hair is very natural and loose. The lob is still very strong and everyone is playing with different lengths. Think disconnected and a little edgy for brave fashionistas. The A-line recycled into very free-flowing, natural movement with some current edge. Layers create volume and movement. Blonde is hot and gold-violet tones are favorite shades. Ombres are much more blended, and bright blonde blocks are trending.
