Trend Report: Mod World

patterns mod by sparklesfade featuring printed skirts

The 60s had a tremendous impression on designers galore that ranged from the ultra chic and edgy Chanel walkways to Moschino's intricately flamboyant apparel. The 60's evoked a prominent presence of simple shapes and silhouettes that featured glimmers of colorblocking. Color was most featured on the bodice with strong hues such as red, royal, and oranges. For a minimalist look, designers such as Marc Jacobs and D&G opted for jailbird or beetlejuice stripes that were ironically clean and refined with explosive pops of color. 

Trompe-l'oeil looks played with textures and were harmonious with colorblocking while stripes were a key conversation throughout the spring runways. Optical illusions tricked the eye with a juxtaposition of positives and negatives, serving as a fresh take on the simple colors. Boxy tops and mod coats were synonymous with this period along with A-line shift dresses and mini skirts serving as key players. Think doe-eyed Twiggy or It Girl Edie Sedgwick! Most pieces were cropped (ie.cropped pants, cropped jackets..) and utterly perfect for the warmer climates.  

As for colors, royal continues to be persevere throughout the seasons. Shades of pink ranging from blush to grapefruit add a flirty retro twist that's perfect for the overall ambiance of the season.  
Accessories featured nude calfskin, metallic finishes, and perforated leather with a beautiful arrangement of prints. (Leather is here to stay!) Studs were featured in all shapes, particularly in the conventional pyramid shape. Geometric heels as well as gladiator sandals with cutouts and straps were showcased. Dual-tone of colors such as black and white were also presented.

I'm planning on featuring another trend next time! Hope you enjoyed it (:
