In its skirt collection for Spring/Summer 2016 Atelier GARDEUR will be presenting a variety of summery styles always aimed at giving wearers the best figure: here stripes are juxtaposed with floral prints and Paisleys. Loose widths and maxi skirts from 70 cm in length shift into the foreground and are sportily transposed with drawstrings, cord band or stretch waistbands. Colour is featured in wide-ranging blue nuances and blue and white combinations accentuated with yellow. This is countered by pastel and neutral tones like blush, aqua, stone and taupe. Strong colours like marsala and papaya round off the summery colour scheme.
Blue Notes: In “Blue Notes” Atelier GARDEUR lays the focus on stripes in the most diverse variations. Different blue nuances in combination with white make for summery maritime contrasts. Yellow tones add fresh accents. Stripes come as horizontals, verticals and irregular stripes, in a material mix or patched within a print. In Summer 2016 long and loose skirts will be key. Maxi skirts with stretch waistbands and stripes on flowing fabrics gain ground while summery jogging skirts look trendy with drawstrings and cord band. Denim looks in a flowing Tencel fabric are new here.
Soft Florals: In Summer 2016 paisleys and soft pastels stand for a casual overall look and feature as long hippy skirts or A-line styles. Linen-viscose gives a flowing drape to loose styles. Prints are still a key theme. Whether floral prints with Paisley touches, pastel blossom prints on satin pencil skirts, foliage prints on linen or photographic floral prints on a cream background – prints show their soft and feminine side. Hippie skirts and swingy styles with inlaid pleats in flowing fabrics add summery lightness to the collection. In terms of colour, pastel tones like blush and aqua dominate in this theme alongside neutral tones like stone and taupe.
Summer Love: Inca, colours and prints. Inspired by that ethno style the Summer Love theme features fresh colours like marsala, papaya, apricot alongside more subdued nuances such as off-white and tartufo. Linen-like textures and Tencel blends in both slim and wide silhouettes form the focal point here. Repeat prints in a mix with inca and paisley patterns, graphic motifs, multi-coloured prints in a pixelated look on a pale background or shadow print looks with a contrasting papaya tone come into their own particularly well in summer.
