Spring’s Riotously Colorful Dresseson February 17, 2020 at 4:00 pm

Posted on February 20, 2020 By In Uncategorized With disabled comments

While some designers have lately adopted rigid sculptural silhouettes in their collections, others have taken that same penchant for volume and turned it toward looser, easier pieces. Take, for example, Valentino’s spring 2020 collection, in which a series of crisp white looks with wide skirts and exaggerated puff sleeves gave way to billowy floor-grazing tiered dresses in vibrant fuchsia, orange and chartreuse. Jil Sander’s Luke and Lucie Meier and Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri, by contrast, created drama with multidimensional textiles adorned with fringe or straw. To capture these collections, and some of the season’s other most kinetic looks, the photographer Johnny Dufort and stylist Jane How chose fittingly spectacular settings: the fantastical rooms of the Italian art hotel Atelier Sul Mare and Sicily’s northern coast. There, the waves, the flash of the camera and the dresses (as well as a few separates) came together to create images that are constantly in motion.
