Thanks to the exploding popularity of Gucci, eccentric mix-and-match dressing is bigger than ever. Gingham with snake print? Sure! Ripped denim with over-the-top embellishment? Why not? A patent trench with a brocade dress? Absolutely! For S/S 17, many designers are ripping up all of the established rules on what you should pair with what, proving truly anything goes.
From Left to Right: Gucci, Altuzarra, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel in our S/S 17 fashion trends report.
Layering prints and textures might sound incredibly daunting, but this trend is more wearable than you might think. Dolce & Gabbana made it approachable by pairing jeans with bejeweled accessories, a trophy jacket and a motif tee, while at Miu Miu, it was all about accessorizing to the max with lilac platforms and a printed wrap.
