With flowers blooming and temperatures getting warmer, it can only mean one thing. The Spring/Summer runway collections we’ve been waiting for since the October runways are now ready to shop for in Bangkok. Among other trends, we’ve been spotting a lot of sorbet colours, feathers-before-five, and extreme tie-dye. And we really, really approve. It’s set to be a bright and colourful season, sure to put a real spring in your step. So whether you’re planning a refreshing spring break or looking to give your wardrobe a good spring clean, here’s your guide to what’s trending and where to find the best picks of the bunch.
There’s nothing better than a fresh and light sorbet on a hot day. Luckily, the clothes this season are just as fruity and delicious. Designers are loving sorbet colours, and they’re having a particular craving for flavours like tart raspberry and scrumptiously sweet mango. Just have a lick (um, we meant look) at these…
Under the Feather
Waiting until sundown to wear feathers is so last season; get ready to embrace plumes before noon. Flying away for spring break? Let these pieces give you wings…
Do or Tie-dye
To the joy of all our inner surfer chicks and hippie alter-egos, the beachy 60s essential is back in business. For a 2019 twist, Proenza Schouler puts it on denim while Prada tries it out on feminine A-line dresses. Even Chloé is dipping into tie-dye with some head-to-toe acid wash.
The Big Short
Shorts will always be in fashion for the warmer seasons (cue: collective sigh of relief from all Bangkokians). But gone are the days of hot pants and frayed hems. This season, sensible is the new sexy. Boy-length with actual pockets – these mum-and-dad-approved shorts are the ones to shop.
All about Utility
Boiler suits, cargo pants, and lots of belt straps filled the Spring 2019 runways. Fashion has never looked more handy. These strong utility looks are not only perfect for a quick all-in-one outfit, they’ll also help you get your hands dirty for a big spring clean.
On the spot
Has the polka dot ever been out of fashion? The all-time favourite print is quintessentially spring and forever associated with picnics. Dolce & Gabbana and Celine keep the timeless black-and-white theme strong while Moschino play spot the difference with a zingy twist on the familiar pattern.
Looks to Frill
Fringe, ruffles, and lots of layers – this trend is all about frill seeking. Like new growth and new life, movement is a key theme for spring. This trend will have you swaying, swishing, twirling, and bouncing around to embrace this truly dynamic season.
