Spring 15 Trend Report

by Lisa Lyford
Spring 15 Trend Report

We’ve been observing the key trends in the northern hemisphere for the past six months, and prior when they were modelled on the international stage, but now it’s our turn Downunder. Here’s the style wrap for Spring ’15 as it’s being rolled into stores now.

 

 

 

1. 70’s influence

 

Oh yeah baby! Think flares, mustards & browns, head scarves and tassles. Suede is big business and corduroy too.

Gladiators, as pictured above, were big for spring/summer in the northern hemisphere. We haven't seen any here yet, just mini versions. Strappy flats and heels were also big, a toned down version of the Gladiator.
