Felipe Oliveira Baptista Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – Paris Fashion Week

If you’re a fan of the caftan but can’t wear clothes of that type in pubic because of their extremely different design and cultural background, than the Felipe Oliveira Baptista spring/summer 2014 collection, recently presented at Paris Fashion Week has a wonderful surprise for you presenting a perfect solution to be able to combine the widely accepted, common shapes with such Morocco motives. This collection is one big and unique concept of unification of the classic European trends with an Islamic-African motives, where the color palette remains calm and monochrome, while the shapes change drastically.

The views concerning the Felipe Oliveira Baptista spring/summer 2014 collection vary, however, individuality and fresh ideas, which are the most important factors that any new collection should possess, are certainly found here. And that’s worth congratulating on. The main background shapes chosen for this collection are the shirtdresses, coats, at times jumpsuits and top-skirt combos. Still, each of these garments has a specific characteristic and distinguishing trait, formed by the main influential themes of the outer inspiration. Thus this tendency turns a classic shirtdress of knee length into a real caftan due to some additional and floor length extra details put at the back. Otherwise, it may just turn up as a cute knee length outfit with slightly oversized pockets and a monochrome belt.
The cuffed sleeves are other minor key elements of the overall Felipe Oliveira Baptista spring/summer 2014 collection. The cropped top and cropped pants pairs are truly beautiful and equally comfortable. The navy blue shades, which tend to become one of the main key colors of the upcoming season, are also present in the Felipe Oliveira Baptista collection, coming out on jumpsuits, mini length shirtdresses and floor length garments with the typical caftan motives.

The main silhouettes of the Felipe Oliveira Baptista spring/summer 2014 collection, taking as a whole, are quite sharp, at times even reaching kimono-cuts at the sleeves. Generally speaking, we can say that the softness in this line was reduced to minimum, at the same time resourcefully avoiding the danger of losing the chic of the garments.
