Spring summer 2015 trends: a word from the designers
Monica Feudi, Miu-Miu, Valentino are just a small part of the clothing designers who have emphasized, in their collections, the inspiration of the style of the 70s. Charleston pants, a leather or suede jacket, round sunglasses. The 1970s were a defining time for the fashion, music and youth culture scene. This is the funk era, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson. The revolution of May 68 set the tone for fashion and culture. The women put on trousers, oriental prints and shiny materials. The fashion of the 70s was also the explosion of blue jeans: high waist, sometimes ripped, very wide cut.

Suede, or even suede, is a type of leather with a softer finish that makes it suitable for creating lighter garments: dresses, blouses, skirts. Made, in principle, on the basis of cowhide, currently we can of course find several ecological alternatives. At its origin, suede was mainly used for the creation of gloves.

The apron, an accessory usually reserved for cooks, finds its place on the haute couture scene. Altuzarra, Ostwald Helgason and Giambattista Valli reinvent it to create very designer ready-to-wear. It comes in many different shapes and colors. Its originality is essential. In black, green or blue, it becomes an elegant accessory.
