Seen on the Runway

Ranging from thin patterns to mixing colours the collection is the epiphany of a mesmerising trip. Of course, they weren’t sole in zooming in on the trend. Valentino took a new turn under the direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli, designing a collection that captivated a whole new and broader public. The first piece he sent up the runway during the SS17 show was a long striped dress in pink hues that directly set the tone. Philip Lim added a touch of rock ’n roll to the traditional pattern with a short-suited silhouette in white, yellow and blue tones. Overall, designers uncovered a modern manner of enforcing the striped power in their ensembles.
