SPRING/SUMMER 2018 TREND REPORT
All the trends to know for the upcoming season
Pantone may have chosen Ultra Violet as the colour of the year, but an array of pastel hues will also be vying for your attention come spring. There’s a good reason why we’re seeing this parade of soothing tones turn up on runways from Alexander McQueen to Michael Kors Collection: With the world shrouded in an air of uncertainty, designers are telling us to step out in the sweetest shades to lift our spirits. So go ahead and take your pick, whether it’s the layers of delicate pinks on an unconventional ensemble at Miu Miu, or the sensual sheen of icy mint on a flashy fringed number at Diane von Furstenberg.
From ensembles that prove life in plastic is fantastic, to high-impact fringe boots that recall hedonistic nights, designers stepped up to the task and dreamt up fashion teeming with unbridled positivity. By Gerald Tan
