Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain army was equipped with power stripes for SS15, with a mostly monochrome palette brought to life by Mondrian-inspired primary colours. Served up on tailored blazers, body-skimming skirts, jumpsuits and thigh-skimming mini dresses, take your pick and prepare to feel fierce.
A true fashion perennial, no wardrobe is complete without a classic Breton top. While it’s a weekend go-to that works perfectly with off-duty denim, we love the ladylike appeal of Emma Stone’s Michael Kors pairing. Do try this at home.
Summer-ready in every sense, Alberta Ferretti’s pre-SS15 collection provided a burst of colour that proved irresistible to this style maven. Showcasing tie-dye stripes in pink, poppy red and sunshine yellow, this is a stripe best served with an air of nonchalance.
Unveiling a collection fit for a Givenchy warrior, Riccardo Tisci’s bold humbug stripes added contemporary energy to the line-up of latticed jackets, second-skin leggings and corseted bodices. With Monochrome another major trend for SS15, black and white stripes are the ultimate way to kill two sartorial birds with one stone.
The summer season calls for an injection of fun so we’ll be following blogger Helena Bordon’s lead and turning to Valentino's multi-coloured stripes to add instant zing to our wardrobe. The Italian fashion house has given everything from its classic Rockstud 100 1973 Pump to Chevron Intarsia Shorts the multi-coloured makeover.
