Michael Kors SS15 brings the vibrant colours, feminine silhouettes and floral prints we crave in these dreary months. This collection also sees dips into nautical stripes for the sophisticated traveller.
Flowers, nonetheless, take the forefront even in accessories whether on belts, shoes or appliqués. Meanwhile, hidden behind the blooms of spring is season staples like Kors' crisp shirt dresses and capped-sleeve t-shirts.
Michael Kors said, “These are clothes that can go anywhere in the world, from the city to the country to the desert to the seaside.”

At the Burberry SS15 show there was as much discussion about who was in the front row as who was on the catwalk. Though, the latter is nothing to scoff at with romanticism galore.
Tulle is in abundance but denim jackets and faux fur make a welcome appearance. Ombre dresses and sheer, knife-pleat skirts also defined the show.
The final parade, however, was all about hand painted trench coats giving a twist on the fashion house's iconic staple. All in all: relaxed, colourful and cool.

Fyodor Golan SS15 continue on their futuristic path with added notes of 90s rave culture. Their daring ‘Digital Romanticism’ paraded warped images and unusual shapes, for the audacious fashionista.
Alongside space age dance-wear there's the wearable. The pair are bang on trend too with their use of faux fur, proving they're not too ahead of their time and are ones to watch.

The languid silhouettes and the addition of fringing in Salvatore Ferragamo SS15 subtly nod to the 1970s. The neutral tones and flowing fabrics are destined for hot climates in far flung reaches of the globe. We hope they take us with them.

Alexander McQueen SS15 sees Eastern influences mix femininity, power and sexuality. Key pieces juxtapose cherry blossom embroidery and organza flower skirts with harness straps on the top.
Likewise, the traditional garb feels authoritative and dominant with stiffer, rigid fabrics rather than denoting the delicate flowers which decorated both the garments and the venue.
Once again a powerful, memorable showing which you can get a haunting glimpse of.

This year sees Lanvin's 125th anniversary and to celebrate their SS15 show kicked off with the likes of iconic French model Violetta Sanchez. She was followed by actress Amber Valletta among other well-known faces.
Whilst a range of ages were showcased, Alber Elbaz is also known for aspiring to cater to every woman in his line and we dare-say he succeeded. There were full-length flowing gowns; shorter, sparkling feminine dresses and tailored blazers to fit every mood and style.
This is a brand for grown women with tastes to match.

Louis Vuitton SS15 is all about a mix of 60s and 70s inspiration but with updates in texture, prints and hues. There’s velvet flares but they’re paired with a matching yet quilted bra top. More than that, high necks and the ample use of leather are so now.
This is Nicolas Ghesquière’s second ready-to-wear collection for the fashion house. He proves that he can encapsulate the brand’s fashion savvy consumer who gravitates towards the outspoken yet timeless.

Roland Mouret SS15 appeals to the modern woman with its sporty pastiche, bold block colours, contrasting pastels and playful mix of textures. Roland Mouret dedicated this line, 'The Desire', to his upcoming Madison Avenue store, his first in the States.
He poetically said, “I feel I am now at the point where I am the closest with my customer – a sort of synchronicity, and I wanted to create a collection just for her.
“I want to reinvent the silhouettes she requires, the wardrobe that inspires, and give her the confidence she desires.”
