One thing is for sure LINEN is going to be BIG this summer and it’s clear fashion is in a relaxed mood!

Designer: Salvatore Ferragamo

The overall “wrinkles are welcome” attitude and relaxed cuts will make it simple to pack for next years summer holiday. The destination – anywhere exotic!

What’s up with color? A pallid palette of putty, grey, green, blue and natural ecru of some of the collections contrasts comfortably with spicier and more vibrant shades of cobalt blue, ochre, burnt orange and red.

The espadrille, yes the shoe of yesteryear’s Spanish fishermen makes a comeback and has never looked this good before. But don’t panic – there is nothing Miami Vice about it: not a Hawaiian shirt in sight! Leather brogues and rope-soled loafers are also options finishing the “linen look” with wearable ease.

The general feel is a mix of ethnic influences from all over the world with classic European styles creating a look that conjures the romance of the Riviera with a sense of a bohemian journey. Start planning your wardrobe and your destination now.
