SS15 trend report: The Simple Life
Bye bye normcore. Hello sex! After some seasons of over-sized being the standard, this Spring it’s all about feminity. One of the most extravagant trends seen on the runways is the Barbie look. Or if I like to call it: The Simple Life. Moschino had a complete show in the theme of Barbie. Hot pink, leather, belly shirts and cropped denim jeans jackets are an important part of this look. The smaller the top the better, combined with a boyfriend jeans a perfect festival look. I could imagine that for a trend like this, which is pretty extreme, you won’t invest in an expensive Louis Vuitton top. However the high-street brands have good alternatives for a trend like this as well. Take for example the top from Topshop above, for €26,-.
One thing is for sure with this trend: Sex is back. You can also tell on the red-carpets lately. Thanks to designers as Versace there has been more nudity during the big red carpet events than in many years. Sex sells, so curious how you are going to sell this trend on the street.
