While sipping on peppermint tea and divulging in greasy pizza, I knew I had to take a break to talk about the latest Preen Spring 2015 Collection, by Thornton Bregazzi at London Fashion Week. I mean, sometimes even greasy pizza has to be put on hold when clothes are so crisp, energetic and fun such as those presented on Sunday’s runway. And in still photography, it’s hard to imagine the movement of these clothes – but trust me when I say, on the live-show they moved beautifully!
We’ve seen sportswear all over the Spring runways, but Bregazzi’s version of a floral flowing dress, accented with athletic hemlines somehow kicks things to another level. It’s like when Prada introduced bejeweled athletic socks last season. That perfect integration of sporty into downright feminine.
Color plays a big roll in this collection -more specifically, the primary colors we learned about in elementary art classes. And why not? The primary colors are sharp and to the point, same as these designs. In terms of shape, we play with bandage, fringe and asymmetrical hemlines. Everything comes together like a sharp geometry lesson and it leaves me feeling a bit excited for spring.
I mean, I always love a good contemporary collection but this one seems especially awesome. And, duh! The use of orange. A Spring 2014 trend that I’m definitely not mad to see creep back into Spring 2015.
Now let’s turn the conversation to you: do you like this? Would you wear this to skirt around town? Think about how far you could go in those comfortable, sporty sandals!
