Guess Launches Spring/Summer 2016 Collection
I was recently invited to preview Guess Spring/Summer 2016 collection which took place at Al Qasar Hotel, Dubai. The crowd witnessed fashionable trends, exquisite designs and luxurious silhouettes in bright colours across Womenswear and Menswear. The show also showcased fashion-forward accessories to serve the spring summer wardrobe.
The spring women’s GUESS collection is a denim-focused assortment injected with unique, light-weight pieces that deliver an instant trend-focused look. Denim and chambray are seen in many silhouettes featuring fresh new takes on detailing including a classic denim jacket reimagined using three-tone patchwork detailing, a 70’s inspired chambray dress with wide-bell sleeves with a thick braided belt to accentuate the waistline. Spring’s color palette goes for a tonal approach using clean whites and shades of tan and beige. White distressed denim and island-ready delicate lace dresses and off-the-shoulder tops in crisp white are complemented by the rich earthy neutral tones in the form of tops, shorts and a buttery leather jacket. A standout print from the spring collection is a beautiful white and blue floral print reminiscent of the bold color palette seen throughout Greece. Iconic gingham printed peplum dresses and long-sleeve button-down tops knotted at the waist are styles reminiscent of vintage GUESS and serve as timeless garments for any GUESS girl’s wardrobe.
This season, modern slim-fit button-down shirts in white, chambray and eye-catching patterns dominate the men’s GUESS spring collection and serve as a seasonal staple that’s never going out of style. Moving away from the more distressed and structured styles from colder seasons, the GUESS Guy opts for a more effortless cool vibe wearing laid-back blue and white jeans and shorts paired with unbuttoned shirts with rolled up sleeves.
The Marciano Spring ’16 collection include wide-legged striped knit pants with subtle sparkle detailing, sexy and sheer lace flares as well as a chic black body suit with a luxe, lace-up neck that reveals just the right amount of skin. Effervescent florals in peach, fuchsia, coral and teal in light-weight maxi dresses and romantic tops cater to Spring’s brighter color palette and add a touch of femininity to your look. Sophisticated fit and flare dresses and two-piece pencil skirts paired with matching crop tops are transitional garments that remain fashionable when the warmer months fade away.
Look for this new spring summer 2016 collection at GUESS, Marciano and Accessories stores in UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, KSA, Qatar, Egypt and Lebanon.
