Zara ’ s Spring Summer Collection 2015 Brings Back the 70s
When it comes to setting trends, Zara never disappoints. The Spanish fashion retailer has just released its spring/summer 2015 collection – and we think it will make waves in the fashion scene.
Zara always had a thing for classic cuts and styles, and everyone loves whatever the brand puts on the table, but nothing could have prepared us for its nostalgic reinvention of styles from the 70s.
For the SS15 collection, the brand embraced a more tailored, feminine aesthetic with tons of stripes, ruffles and tassels. The pieces are familiar yet fresh. They are not something you can easily dig out from your mother’s closet.
If there is one word to describe the entire collection, it would only be eclectic, with pieces varying in style, colour and texture.
This includes long, billowy monochrome dresses among embroidered waistcoats, structured tees and summer shorts. To complement the feminine cuts, the line includes androgynous pieces teamed with statement vinyl skirts, loose faux leather dresses, animal-print tops, tie-waist trousers, jacquard straight dresses, long denim skirts, midi heels and strappy sandals.
Even the shoes and accessories are highly varied, from tasseled bucket bags and metallic sheen clutches to shiny Oxfords and suede cowboy boots. There are fabulous pieces you can wear to work as well, with the collection including straight-cut trousers and suits.
Zara’s collection also includes kids, with the perfect balance of vibrant and subdued. The colours and textiles are soft with edgy patterns of pinstripes, polka dots and chevrons prevalent in the designs.
The men’s range brings back the vision of gentlemen clad in grey suits but modernised with casual tees and shirts. Colourful trench coats, knitted sweaters, slim-fit blazers and cropped pants seem to be the key pieces in the collection.
As always, Zara’s new collection is totally pocket friendly and no doubt you will find great bargain buys from this range.
The Zara spring/summer 2015 items are available online and in-store. Check out the pieces at Zara’s Westfield flagship store at the Pitt Street Mall. “You gotta have summer!”
