Band of Outsiders Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

A time of romance, fine wine and exotic tropical landscapes is how designer, Scott Sternberg, idealized Band of Outsiders’ Spring 2015 collection. Inspired by images of the 1960’s Brazilian jazz records during the Tropicália movement, the collection creates silhouettes in ultra-short pleated dresses, tailored sheaths, micro ponchos and high-waisted bathing suit-like bottoms. Cross grosgrain straps are seen on belts of dresses, shirts and skirts, while the classic Toile de Jouy pattern can be seen on light dresses and shirts embedded with the face of the Brazilian album “Nara.”

Another inspiration that emerges through the collection is the ladybug. It takes form on silk crepe prints, beading on cardigans and sweater dresses and applied on Mackintosh raincoats. Accessories include, floppy straw sun hats woven with black, white and clear PCV pieces.

Mulberry Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Mulberry introduces their latest looks in the Spring/Summer 2015 Collection. Inspired by the sincere joy and pleasure of an English country garden blooming on a summer’s day, the collection embodies the ‘can do, can dig’ gardeners’ attire and utilizes its practicality while still creating luxury garments.

Practical pockets and utilitarian shapes are combined with laser-cut leather and substantial sandals to contradict the delicacy of the intricate prints. It’s not just about being cute and pretty. The Mulberry Girl may be wearing the finest silk, but when the time comes for her to enjoy herself, she is ready to take on whatever weather the English spring has to offer in cool and contemporary wear.
