Versace Jeans Couture. They started their adventure at the Milan fashion week, reigning supreme in the debut collection of Sabato De Sarno for Gucci and Peter Hawkings for Tom Ford before making their way to the fashion capital – Paris. They were celebrated there by Alexander McQueen, Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney and Chloé. Shorts were presented as nonchalant, showing off the legs of elegantly dressed models, but they were also a more casual, even sporty, outfit element.
I am a woman
Lace, bows, organza, silk and romantic colours. The fashion industry is not giving up on the balletcore aesthetic, and it is testing its limits in this year’s spring/summer collections. This time, the unique combination of delicacy and romance is taken to a new level with designs meant not only for evening outings, but also... for everyday wear.
Blumarine, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana and Balmain Top with butterfly motif. The first two brands showed the beauty of romance with openwork, lace, frills and transparent fabrics, the Italian fashion house focused on some aspects of femininity – sex appeal and coquettishness, while Olivier Rousteing presented elegant pleats and a charming rose motif. The trend was also adopted by Matthew Williams and even... Demna Gvasalia.

See where to find inspiration for looks that combine sporty comfort with effortless elegance, and incorporate the vision of leading designers into your wardrobe right now.
The most appealing interpretations of this trend were presented by Italian brands Dries Van Noten, Y/Project and Dsquared2. They juxtaposed the rather formal attire with tops that were confusingly reminiscent of rugby jerseys. The catwalks, however, didn't lack sweatshirts which are characteristic of this aesthetic. Gucci Micro shorts appeared in the collections of many brands, Ferragamo paired them with capri trousers, which until recently were considered a fashion faux pas, and JW Anderson transformed the relaxed-fitting styles into the perfect everyday.... mini dresses. As you might expect, silhouettes in the spirit of sporty chic have also appeared at Wales Bonner. The designer who is known for this style, dazzled us with an unconventional combination of a blazer and casual shorts and a navy blue ensemble featuring a well-fitted sporty sweatshirt in the main role.
high, higher, highest
This season, high-waisted styles, especially trousers, will make a significant comeback. This is because designers decided to have a little fun with proportions and instead of continuing the history of these classic constructions found in every wardrobe, they offered something extremely… fresh.
If you've been following the recent fashion shows at all, you won't probably be surprised to learn that when it comes to this trend, our hearts were especially stolen by Jonathan Anderson's models for Loewe. The Irishman showcased on the catwalk his 13 variations on the trousers’ theme, which ended not at the waist, but just below the bust. The same height appeared at Alaïa, Issey Miyake and Balmain, while a slightly lower but equally striking rendition was seen at Rick Owens. We wouldn't be ourselves if we didn't also mention Saint Laurent designs here. Last year’s much-talked-about presentation of Anthony Vaccarello referencing the founder's iconic Safari collection consisted of unique trousers featuring a high-rise waist, skirts and jumpsuits.
