The Sfera Woman line is inspired by four major trends this Spring–Summer 2017:
The a-temporal focus plays a bigger role
Items based on a concept, on a story to tell or on a function seduce without needing to be tied to a specific trend or encapsulated in a month, year or day. The non-trend concept – without needing to refer to the same basics as ever – and the slow philosophy are more present than ever in this collection.
The popularity of historic references. The past to create the future
Artistic movements like the Renaissance, the Baroque era and the Victorian age lay the foundations for creating a very romantic and feminine theme. It incorporates boudoir items in long dresses, made of silk chiffon and sheer lace and Tudor-style details are added in sleeves and ruffles. New this season is the use of pinks and beige to create a dramatic contrast, floral upholstery prints, oversize garden flowers and paisley prints.
The sporty and relaxed style leads to leisure looks combined with feminine items
Still dominant are the practical and relaxed items that formed the new sporty style but this season they merge with modern items that give the look a futuristic attraction. We will see mixtures of bright colours, energetic shades of purple, blue and yellow and the use of sheer and light materials cut in generous proportions. Items like cords, zips an classic stripe prints stand out.
Significant emphasis on the structure
The minimalist trend evolves towards sombre shapes that emphasis the structure. Pale colours and white and items made with light materials are worn from head to toe to create Zen-inspired, elegant, discreet and sensual looks. The modern aesthetic is achieved with minimalist polka dot, shaded check and very thin Oxford stripe.
A new trend that stands out is other structures inspired by the 80s. Structured lines and excessive volume that accentuate the shoulders and that are renewed in the focus on the waist and hips. Tailoring, cutouts and asymmetry emphasize a solid feminine shape, while corseting, cutouts and shoulder pads support a firm attitude.
