The new Veronika Maine collection explores the dynamic between aesthetics and wearability, introducing fluid shapes, sensual tactility and expressive print and colour for Summer 2016.
Subdued shades of blush and ivory are offset by khaki, terracotta and ink with monochromatic accents of black and white to ground the palette. Artistic, overblown florals elevate understated silhouettes, as do lace-up and top-stitching details against fabrications of bonded satin and drapey triple crepe.
Minimalism is made modern by way of a newfound femininity. Cut-out styles elegantly expose the shoulders, asymmetric ruffles create new proportions and highly textural finishes – knife pleats, rib knits and crinkled georgette – ground the look firmly in the now.
Fabrics and shapes have been studied and developed: a new spin on the slip dress in dull satin, lace embedded discreetly on camisoles, culottes in textured jacquard and hardware highlights of metal rings, oval buckles and eyelets. Trousers are reinvented in languid materials and tunics are finished with uncomplicated embellishment. Updates on Veronika Maine signatures —pieces that celebrate the art of fashion, are cast in luxury fabrics and move effortlessly —will earn their keep in any wardrobe. Consider it pared-back dressing at its best.
