Calvin Klein Spring/Summer 2016

The slip dress is set to become one of spring’s hottest trends, thanks to a nod to the nineties on the runways at Céline, Calvin Klein and Saint Laurent, among others.

Calvin Klein is the spiritual home of the slip dress – its eponymous designer was responsible for launching the style onto the catwalk and into our wardrobes back in 1994.  However, it’s not the return of underwear as outerwear that caught my eye at current creative director Francisco Costa’s show – I love those chains!

And it seems that others love them too.  Sarah Burton adorned both her male and female models in beautiful body chains at Alexander McQueen…
