This AW17 the Bruuns Bazaar woman celebrates the beauty of contrasts by looking to the men’s wardrobe for inspiration.
Classic menswear is redesigned and reworked with feminine details to create a refined look where the essence is strong yet the styling relaxed.
Contrasts are visible in the form of shiny versus dull, textured against plain and soft meets sharp. The silhouette is bold; subtle tributes are paid to powerful 80s shapes via the use of exaggerated proportions such as the statement shoulder and elongated sleeves, whilst romantic flouncy dresses and drapey fabrics bring a welcome element of womanly opulence. Ultra-elegant and soft silks blouses are given a nonchalant yet chic look when met with the woollen man pant while floaty pleated fabrics are given a new life when paired with classic suiting and sportswear pieces.
The colour palette is burned and decadent. A deep brownish red alongside a warm yellowish green act as enticing tones. These deeper shades are delicately offset by a crispy light purple and white, while the classic staples of navy, black and a range of grey mélange shades are present throughout. Luxurious textures alongside a fusion of minimal and romantic pieces results in a collection of cool, where the modern woman embraces her femininity with personality and verve.
