Bare shoulders

The woman 2016 shows enough skin, but without exaggeration. Although the sleeves back with force, short or long, the shoulders are on display _ whether in a game of asymmetry sexy (Rosie Assoulin, Altuzarra, Tibi and Andrea Jiapei Li) or structured in featured in small tops, dresses or suits (Givenchy, Jill Stuart, Wes Gordon, Yigal Azrouel, Betsey Johnson, Lacoste, Prabal Gurung, Creatures of Comfort, Kempner, Idan Cohen, Cushine et Ochs). This is so far one of the strongest trends of the season.


If we believe in fashion designers in, the frills will be everywhere next summer, to animate a silhouette light and fluid. Came hard on BCBG Max Azria, but also on the catwalk of Jason Wu, to give femininity to a Bustier or a short dress, a silk blouse of Zimmermann, or a top in Thakoon or Jill Stuart. Among other small romantic details, income remains very present in Givenchy, in addition to thin or wide, fringing trend that lingers for several seasons (Jason Wu, Dion Lee).

The extra-large also promises to be one of the Favorites this season, favoring the sculptural silhouettes. A very trend presented on the runway in the form of blazers or jackets without sleeves that fall slightly until the ankles or the heel on a miniskirt or pants very broad, as in Public School. The trend also appears on the catwalk of DVF, Thakoon and Jenny Packham.

Beach chic

A mild sea air blows this week shows in New York: at Altuzarra, which revisits his Basque roots this season and retrieves the sneakers, in linen, crinkled tissues, like out of a beach bag; on Victoria Beckham, with images of surfboards printed on top, on the side of a skirt and on the catwalk of Rosie Assoulin, which showed a sweater emblazoned with green bikini strips long. Mara Hoffman imagined style hippie chic ‘ on the beach and Tommy Hilfiger took the Caribbean to New York, complete with artificial lake, sand, Palm trees and a hut with thatched roof. His collection has reinvented with joy his classics, like the stripes, and brought the crochet for a woman “young, friendly, that loves life.”

Natural beauty

The wife of the spring-summer 2016 highlights your natural beauty and opts for a discreet makeup, even minimalist, focused mainly on tom to show a radiant skin and well hydrated (Alexander Wang, Thakoon). Nothing or little mascara, as in Derek Lam, with small details like a yellow shadow under the eyes, eyebrows highlighted in Prabal Gurung and Alexander Wang, highlighted with bright red lips at Jason Wu and Victoria Beckham, or face adorned with jewels on the catwalks of Givenchy.
