22 February, 2015: For Spring Summer ‘15 at Wallis, there is a re-emergence of key trends that underpin the brand’s handwriting, with Safari and Utility as well as the 70’s being the coherent influences, reinterpreted for the new season.
Moroccan Modern is a confident statement of striking pieces characterised by languid, relaxed styling for a fluid and sophisticated trend. Minimal pieces are brought to life with key stripe statements, cut-outs and Moroccan patchworks. The monochrome palette creates impactful dressing solutions in simple shapes such as luxe joggers, cold shoulder styles and column t-shirt dresses. Culottes mark a move on for summer tailoring shapes and statement knitted kaftans are key.
Dusted pastels with accents of citrus tones lend themselves to the 70s inspired trend ‘Hazy Days’. Crepe jumpsuits add a modern, minimal take on this trend, whilst romantic florals create a softer edge, and digital print floral maxi dresses make an ultra-feminine statement. A melange of textures from metallic to lace and burnout features add interest to this pretty collection, offering real modern romanticism for the new season.
The safari trend is updated by mixing with Asian influences for our Frida collection. A neutral palette of rich earthy tones accented with bold orange and sun-bleached terracotta is inspired by nature, but designed for summer in the city. Safari jackets, utility jumpsuits and maxi shirt dresses in key prints offer a dressed up take on these trends. Asian inspirations come through in halter and wrapped styles where we see bright colour blocking with deep exotic florals to give these influences a very modern and individual twist
