And the 5 biggest Spring Summer 2014 trends are:

Black & white

Black is the new black. White is the new white. After several color explosions last couple of Summer seasons, it’s time to tone down a little. Go head-to-toe for a maximum effect!

Feminine applications and embroideries on literally everything, from dresses and tops to accessories.

Midriff chic

Ladies, you better start working on your abs! Next Summer season is all about showing of your midriff. Bra lets, cropped tops and all are mixed to palazzo pants, skirts or even an attempt at tailoring.

Perforation

With lace and see-through fabrics being a constant last seasons and a commercial success across the globe, fashion takes it to another level. Perforated patterns are more precious and detailed.

Another show I saw during my mini Paris Fashion Week trip last weekend was Leonard Paris, a brand très connu for its prints, but I actually didn’t know very well. Raffaele Borriello brings the Leonard woman into a new era with a younger, more urban attitude. Inspired by the archives of the fashion house and prints going back to the early Eighties, the designer gives his own twist to the Spring Summer 2014 collection. Elegance at its best! The perfect collection for women who want a sophisticated sexy look.

Last Sunday in Paris. After posing my way to the entrance of the Grand Palais I attended the latest Akris show. The brand, as Swiss as Emmentaler cheese, was in top form yet again, offering an elegant Spring Summer 2014 collection. ‘It’s a dream of fabrics and nature, moved forward through technology.’ Albert Kriemler explained backstage. He produced nature images in large scale on cotton voile, plissé chiffon… and even leather. The designer has become known for his photoprints, but they were more abstracted and more exuberant than ever. Good job!
