Spring/Summer 2017 is just around the corner and the one trend that I believe connects to and excites me the most is, Pause.

Pause focuses on minimalism, luxury, quality, and comfort.

The main silhouette is the A-line, a narrowed top half followed by a flared hemline.

What makes it exquisite refinement?

Methods such as caging (a modern approach to lace) works well with lingerie, grid patterns are deconstructed and takes on a subtle form on fine woven bases.

What makes the cone shape?

As previously mentioned the primary silhouette is an A-line, and the cone shape helps emphasize this with its extreme form while going for a minimalistic approach.

Velvet and suede are made lighter and enhanced through the addition of metallic fibers for high luster(shine) and crease effects.
