Popular Spanish brand (Sfera)’s Fall/Winter 2016 Collection for women channels decadent romanticism, minimal athleisure and ‘80s rock, bringing the spontaneous mix-and-match of various prints and colors of fashion pieces, that made a short cameo in the past Spring/Summer Collection.
Exquisite tailoring, extravagant embroidery and leather straps highlight decadent romanticism with a boho edge. This trend is achieved in the mash-up of strong, tailored trousers and blazers, and the feminine floral shirts and crisp blouses with bell sleeves and ruffle details. The retro feel of the collection is emblazoned on each piece, giving it a worn-in, lived-in look in order to add a touch of glamour and quality.
The spotlight is on everything floral, embroidered and embellished with pink, brown, beige and olive green as its color palette. Upholstery fabrics, large tweeds, floral prints with dark backgrounds, geometric patterns and tiny print patches play a leading role in this trend.
Minimal athleisure channels casual meets sporty with the après-ski look—zipper details and a stripe on the side of a black pant leg. The look has a masculine feel with a feminine touch—tailored pants, long vests, and a classic black, grey, white and navy blue palette with a hint of cognac and burgundy injected here and there. The fashionable but sporty aesthetic is evident in the floral bomber jackets with sateen finish, knitted A-line skirts and various other technical garments.
(Sfera) also takes a trip down memory lane with pieces inspired by ‘80s rock, mélange of grunge, gothic and punk. Bohemian grunge is back with casual but gothic elements: lace, see-through materials and sheer. Black and red, plaid and tweed rock in this collection. (Sfera) offers a range of Grunge essentials such as skinny trousers, Biker jacket, plaid shirts, ripped denim jeans, subtle lingerie and combat boots that you can customized with embellishments, patches, or pop rock style pins, giving them a more fun and relaxed touch.
