The 2014 summer is full of pleated designs, that’s for sure! From Hermès to Christian Dior and Lanvin, most of the brands have incorporated this versatile element into their pieces for this year’s spring season. Being one of the most known forms of expression in clothing, the pleat is a veteran in the world of fashion. Therefore, it’s always interesting to see how it is approached by designers.
Chloè has come with ethereal over-pleated dresses while Proenza Schouler and Zimmerman explored a more classic territory and opted for mid-length skirts. Zac Posen and Jenny Packham, two exponents of elegance and femininity in fashion, have completed their collections with heveanly pleated dresses as well.
The award shows keep coming this weekend as we are approaching the very much awaited Academy Awards! Last night, it was time for the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards and many household names of the film industry attended the event. For me, best dressed were without a doubt Chinese actresses, Ni Ni, and Kerry Washington, both in Giambattista Valli outfits. Check out more outfits below:
