Warehouse Unveils Spring Summer 2017
Spring Summer 2017 offers an elevated vision of high summer for the stylish woman who lives and breathes the city.
Early 70s Halston encapsulates the mood of the collection and influences the relaxed silhouettes whilst the 90s British rave culture is representative of her care-free attitude toward fashion. Inspired by Op art and the Technicolour of late 60s American sitcoms, colour plays a prominent role in Emma Cook’s second collection for Warehouse.
Cook’s signature prints reappear for Spring Summer 2017, focussed primarily on three key patterns; a bold peony floral print adorned onto oversized parkas, a 60s psychedelic ‘Op art’ printed onto shear chiffon maxi dresses and degrede dip dye in hallucinogenic tones that bleed up bandeau dresses and into the hems of wide leg trousers.
A kaleidoscope of colour and pattern reigns over the collection; from Zoom lolly colourblock dresses in scarlet red, acid yellow, apple green and parma violet lilac to tangerine orange and navytie dye trousers.
Elegant evening wear is given a relaxed feel with oversized easy silhouettes. Bandeau dresses are layered over wide leg trousers and elongated halter tops over column skirts, meanwhile asymmetric tops, cold shoulders and exposed midriffs offer a hint of sensuality.
Texture is explored through crushed velvet column dresses, printed crinkle satin pyjama suits, ruched drawstring trousers and silk chiffon maxi dresses. Raw edges are exposed on seams, whilst pleating and gathering offer depth to a selection of jumpsuits and wrap around skirts. The collection revisits the 90s with coordinating T-shirts and skirts in hypercolour that change colour from lilac to pink when heat is applied.
Spring Summer 2017 accessories also receive the Cook treatment and compliment the collection; suede slides in bright colours are paired with lux leather bum bags, semi-transparent XXL beach bags and the medium sized luxury plastic shoppers. Swimwear gets a glamorous 70soverhaul withbikinis in psychedelic prints and relaxed sheer chiffon maxi dresses that can be thrown over the top.
