Byblos Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

Byblos absolutely dazzled us as they threw their audience into a completely new world with the latest Byblos Milano spring/summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection. From opulent blue prints to the incorporation of this season’s androgynous trend, the design house found inspiration in the waves and rolled with it. With a variety of tropical colors based on the waters, sunsets, and the deep colors of the sky, the show presented a variety of fun, youthful clothes for the modern woman. They knew just how to work with patterns, and gave the perfect balance between color and black-and-white.

There were completely unique patterns as well as old favorites showcased, so the creative director of the house – Manuel Facchini – really let their audience reminisce in past trends while also showing what the future of fashion may hold. Showing off a range of stunning short and long dresses, Byblos has a clear “muse” in mind. The common trend between these clothes is the wardrobe they belong to. A younger woman, living in a big city with a refined style. She’s not afraid to play around with patterns or color, but also enjoys the concept of a black dress.

The first dress really showed the key themes the show would hold. There was a vibrant pattern in a mash up of blues and greens (on the bottom) with a slightly more basic pattern of black, grey, and white on top. The tea-length dress alluded to the beach, while still being intentioned for city-living.

The next look showed the other side of the collection, so the viewer could get a gist of the line in the first two ensembles alone. This look featured a textured masculine vest and a pair of crisp white pants. This look is one of the simplest ones in the entire Byblos spring 2016 collection, and it shows that Byblos is striving to use this season’s trend.

Overall, it was easy to find favorite pieces from the show. The problem was the difficulty in choosing one single look as a highlight without second-guessing the decision. Each piece is gorgeous in its own way, and being geared toward younger women, this collection really hits its mark. Not all pieces are exclusively for that age range, but any one of these pieces could be worn with the utmost confidence.

A true standout of the evening was a short, feminine, A-line dress that celebrated the modern image of women. The dress was white with pretty pink and green pieces over the skirt and part of the top. With a cutout bodice over a same-colored bandeau, this dress used trends from the past seasons, which was still a hit on the runway for the 2016 season.
