Ralph Lauren Spring Summer 2016



“My Women’s Collection for Spring 2016 is a modern expression of the glamorous spirit of the French Riviera. It has a romantic rusticity, as well as a sleek and luxurious sportiness that represents to me both the cool insouciance and understated style of the women who inspire me.” - Ralph Lauren.

Classically beautiful, Ralph Lauren’s sleek and sporty spring summer 2016 collection is fresh and luxurious. Nautically inspired, yet still glamorous - this collection was centered on life on and by the sea. Key trends included wide legged trousers and classically tailored silhouettes. Here are a few key looks.

Tory Burch Spring Summer 2016



Fringe, metallic, and flair were key trends at the Tory Burch Spring Summer 2016 presentation. The “strangling” trees at Angkor Wat, the 12th Century temple complex in Cambodia inspired Tory Burch’s latest collection. Light and airy tweed was a key part of her collection as well. And, of course, her signature mix of ethnic and preppy was still prevalent with blue and white stripes and classic tunics.

“I’m in my rose period,” Carolina Herrera told Vogue.  Herrera presented her Spring Summer 2016 collection at a rose-themed show staged at the Frick Collection on the Upper East Side. The Frick Collection has never before opened its doors for a fashion show - this was its first.  This collection represents “tranquility, not stillness but calm elegance – where transparency and illusion evoke sensuality.”  It was void of prints as Herrera has done so many in the past. Spring Summer 2016 was all about working modern fabrics into her classic aesthetic. Key trends were shades of rose and modern pleats. Here are a few standout looks.
