What to wear?
The fashion show will feature fall and winter looks for 2015; it is likely that many guests will wear new favorites from spring 2015. This spring, Saks Fifth Avenue finds inspiration in the past; select spring themes include a ‘70s revival, a leisure sport-meets-fashion movement and an emergence of opulent fantasy fabrics. Key items for spring 2015, according to Saks Fifth Avenue:
DECORATIVE FABRICS — Rich and exuberantly detailed fabrics including intricate brocades, jacquards, patchwork and collage effects will bring regal dimension to ready-to-wear.
OPULENT EMBELLISHMENT — Luxurious ornamentation using artisanal techniques transform the everyday into the extraordinary with beads and crystals, feathers and fringe and elements of shine.
LACE — Lace re-emerges for spring in different iterations ranging from romantic to bohemian; whether re-embroidered and layered, or sheer and transparent.
FRINGE — The season’s embellishment of choice: fringe. Statement pieces are reimagined in suede, beading and even evening wear.
CHECKS — A play on graphics and scale comes through in a series of charmingly fresh checks. From smaller gingham to larger buffalo patterns, checks are the new graphic option.
ACTIVEWEAR — Classic and contemporary designers alike embrace sporty, athletic styles like mesh-accented dresses, micro-fiber tops and lightweight, relaxed track pants.
MIDI AND MAXI LENGTHS –Midi and maxi dresses and skirts are dominant lengths for spring. From skinny tube skirts to more voluptuous versions, the midi skirt was seen in collections in all the major fashion weeks. The maxi length took over the runways with its dramatic, yet bohemian spirit. Designers elevated the maxi with vibrant, yet glamorous prints and fabrications.
MICRO AND MINI BAGS — Designers get playful with scale, creating key shapes in shrunken proportions for arm candy that is as decorative as it is diminutive.
GLADIATORS — A new generation of gladiators emerges with ferocious fringe, gilded finishes and bohemian flair. From flats to heels, the thigh’s the limit for the formidable gladiator.
