Review: 2016 Runway Preview

Posted on June 04 2015

This year’s 2016 Runway preview was a brilliant affair with the layered patterns and chic textures that one would expect. However, I was kind of disappointed with the overall colour palette that was popular for the upcoming season. I found it lacked it’s usual jaw-dropping and lustful response.

These were my favourite pieces that “popped” for me throughout the show:

*note: all photos are NOT mine, and are from other parties such as Vogue, ect.*

Oscar de la Renta:

Gorgeously elegant outfits, but what’s up with the granny belt that was so prominent throughout the whole line? Is this 2005?

Chanel:

Chanel never ceases to pull out top-of-the-chart layered textures that scream, “I’m hella stylish, but I’m hella classic.” Adore. Just adore.

But honestly, what is up with this terrible pattern?

Diesel:

But seriously, Diesel is doing it right with edgy/gothic monochromatics. I mean, white, black, studs? What more could one ask for.

Thronton Bregazzi:

Great pieces, but missed the mark on really standing out from the rest of the recognizable brands that hit the runway last week. Most of these outfits are incredibly wearable for the average professional, but what we want is inspirational pieces that inspire us to spruce up our wardrobe, not just “meh” it.

Fendi:

I don’t know if I want to live in these pieces, die in these pieces or sell off my first-born child for these pieces. Absolutely amazing with spot-on layering that radiates elegance and #lifegoals at the same time. *sigh*

Burberry:

Yaaaaas Burberry, Yas. I can just hear Forever 21 starting up the printing press to recreate these to-die-for textures. Amazing layering, textures, just, bravo.

Max Mara:

Mediocre. But you know they’re making a statement about that belt.

Hugo Boss:

Boss=blah, at least in pattern. But seriously, they know how to cut a lady suit, so they win.

Christian Dior:

It’ll be interesting to see if skirt-topped pants become a thing, because Christian Dior is making me hope that they do.

Louis Vuitton:

Wins first place for most bad-ass patterns this season on the runway. I’m done.
