Texture at Play

By Camilla Basse, Style Editor

It’s no secret that color and floral typically rule the runways for the Spring collections. That most certainly rings true again this year, but there are some new elements at play. Designers such as Chloe, Diane Von Furstenberg, Gucci, Tory Burch, Fendi and Carolina Herrera, among others, up the ante this spring with loads of texture. The runways were dripping with the likes of lace, floral appliqués, mesh, jacquard and fringe. The additions of textured pieces translate so easily into the everyday wardrobe, which makes this movement all the more exciting. Hello, color and floral, there’s some new kids in town this spring.
