“Gwyneth” by Beatrice Brandini

The stripes are one of the ultimate fantasies/pattern, seasonally cyclical, in reality every spring / summer they will return, uninhibited, elegant, cheeky, challenging, colorful and summer. Within a few seasons, however, have become more valuable and “bizarre”, you can dare combining them together or mixing them with other fantasies, in the end everything is permitted because this “is the fashion baby”.

The stripes have a long history, Vionnet and Chanel have used them for beautiful creations, Claire McCardell, American designer, important figure as a precursor of the Lifestyle, already in the 45 used for her collections. Then in the 60s the striped skirts or Capri pants, the first bikini with the reasons baiadera, stolen chairs right at the summer bathing.

But in more recent times, Sonia Rykiel, in rows that made her trademark; Jean Paul Gaultier who was originally used, and he himself, with his striped t-shirt, become unmistakable uniform. Or Christina Lacroix haute couture stripes and very beautiful stripes.

I love them always, often in its most eccentric versions, but in reality a simple striped t-shirt with a pair of jeans or white pants, is already in itself the quintessence of elegance, simple, very Parisian, terribly chic.

I have collected some pictures of the subject stripes, from fashion shows of Spring / Summer 2014, it is very interesting to see how the designers have interpreted the staff and above all very different from each other. Alberta Ferretti: lines folk, poetic and refined. Missoni: tribal and ethnic lines, a modern traveler and citizen of the world. Burberry Prorsum: bizarre, mixed with polka dots and precious as inlays or embroidered Dévoré. Dior: unexpected, almost high fashion, very conceptual.

As always, the catwalks are wonderful, but sometimes not everyone can afford these beautiful creations, even for the same use, is not always suitable for these dresses would go to the office or to accompany our children at school … But we need to dream and especially for a cue, example, driving … then women to treasure these trends and adapt to their own pockets and the life of every day. Examples low cost.
