This was VB’s most free-spirited collection, which had more emphasis on an attitude rather than a silhouette. The print used reminds me of a Californian surf-scene, with a smart-sporty vibe. A well edited and polished collection.

Key take-home message: For a smart-casual carefree look, opt for fun and uplifting prints, with some class to them

Lounge-wear, casual, orientated collection with lovely floral patterns and boxy white jackets.

Key take-home message: For an urban, casual look, which is somewhat representative of a NYC summer, try wearing a long “robe-like” coat with a wispy floral dress underneath.

Diane von Furstenberg

Furstenberg said the collection was about “celebrating truth, nature and freedom” and I think that’s exactly what she does.

Key take-home message: Paint the town red, fuchsia, and orange in Grecian style dresses.

Jonathan Simkhai

This collection displays very interesting shapes creating unique and flattering body movements. A conservative colour palette countered by edgy shapes.

Key take-home message: If you don’t like to be adventurous with colour, trying do it with shapes and cut-outs

A collection filled with fun patterns and finishes. The use of fringe in these outfits are very creative and don’t steal the attention from the woman wearing the clothes.

Key take-home message: Keep wearing fringe next season, and again, like I’ve mentioned multiple times before, keep wearing flattering patterns.

  1. Hi Mimi! I see you take the time to go through every show! Which, by the way, means we can already be friends!!
    I like how you wrote litte conclusions as footnotes. Spot on about the tie dye but I’m going to have to pass on the same level platforms!
    With love,
