What’s The Key Word In Fashion Come Spring 2017?

If you are not yet acquainted with ‘Greenery’ in fashion terms, then you are about to be.

Pantone Colour of the Year is a representational colour selection; a preview of what we see occurring in our global culture that serves as a statement of a mood or an attitude.

The perennial paint purveyor is advocating “a lively and fresh yellow-green shade that evokes feelings of the initial days of spring, when everything comes to life” as the characterizing tone of 2017. This was certainly one of the significant themes of the SS17 shows, where all things botanical reigned supreme. Designers like Sies Marjan, Balenciaga, Emilio Pucci, Gucci, Michael Kors, Kenzo, Zac Posen and Cynthia Rowley created garments in what Pantone calls “nature’s neutral”.

Balenciaga worked the shade into a horticultural-themed jumpsuit, and at Michael Kors it formed the premise of a ruffled dress with modern accents. Cynthia Rowley worked it into beautiful embroidered silhouettes for a bohemian aesthetic, and Gucci utilized it unapologetically for monochrome structured trousers and coats. Several brands chose a more intense slant on the colour, for instance Moschino showcased an emerald dress with exaggerated ruffles. A darker, bottle green also appeared in collections for Sonia Rykiel, Balmain and Rochas.

Consider updating your wardrobe by bringing the freshness of the outdoors inside. Leading fashion houses styled their greenery in a variety of ways, wearing it monochrome for additional effect or as a mishmash of dynamic hues for a summery vibe. However you may decide how to wear yours, remember that this is the season to indulge your inner monster.
