The Bustle SS 2015 collection is ready to meet and greet the warm summer heat with cool tropical hues! The show was set against the backdrop of a Mediterranean getaway, complete with café-style tables, Grecian-blue umbrellas, and sculpted greenery at the head of the runway. Models donned slouchy duffle bags, clunky earphones, sunglasses, or carried runners and even cameras to up the ante on the getaway aura!
Teals and blues in varying shades from bright to navy and denim dominated the collection with pops of muted reds and subdued peaches and corals. Crisp whites was the main neutral, followed by warm greys and navy blue to compliment the bright colour palette.Big broad stripes and Mediterranean tile-inspired prints were the patterns of choice.
Men were dressed in relaxed-fit blazers, which were often featured rolled up at the sleeves or worn unbuttoned, and sporty colour-blocked zip-ups over button-down dress shirts or rugby shirts with accented collars, or lightweight long-sleeve v-necks. Trousers and shorts were cuffed at the hem, or slouched casually around the ankles. The ladies wore the feminine equivalent with pencil skirts and single-button blazers cinched at the waist. Button-down tops were tied at the mid-drift. And, like their male counterparts, occasionally outerwear was showcased with no top at all!
The overall feel of the show was light, relaxed, confident, and of course, flirtatious!
