Jill Stuart Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Pretty vintage style particularly with a reference to the Seventies has always influenced Jill Stuart’s feminine style, who has tried to dress women in comfortable, wearable and uber-girly clothing pieces throughout her career, catering to their style needs rather than following mainstream trends. Consequently, her collections always come imbued with a particular youthful twist merged with an effortless bohemian vibe, making Kate Bosworth, Hilary Swank and other big names devoted fans of the brand. The Jill Stuart spring/summer 2016 collection is all about embracing the brand’s style ideology offering pretty youthful and sexy clothing pieces with hints of the ‘70s. After an entire year of experimenting with boho-chic clothing pieces from this particular fashion era, we still haven’t had enough of it and rejoice at the new Jill Stuart designs.

She had a buoyant and dance-y party girl in mind when designing the Jill Stuart spring 2016 ready-to-wear lineup, playing with flowing silhouettes and fine silks, but also midriff-exposing cropped designs and lovely floral prints that give such a big dose of playfulness and innocence to the entire collection. Diverse and cool are the clothing pieces unveiled just like the rich color range combining two contradicting palettes – one concentrating on girly muted pastels, while another one featuring rich autumnal tones, including burgundies, deep navy blues, dark lilacs and burnt oranges. The show kicked off with the range of pastel looks, among which we saw lots of pale cream, pink and blue pieces that put the focus on the movement and lightness of the fabrics. The opening look might be slightly difficult to take to the streets, as the high-rise floor-length culottes with a satin lining and front slits paired with the super-tiny bandeau top might require a model’s body to create a winning outfit. This is one look you may not know too well where to sport – to a family gathering, a weekend outing or a romantic night out with your beloved one.

Next to the slightly difficult looks, the Jill Stuart spring 2016 show unveiled timeless bohemian staples as well that will definitely appeal to the brand’s loyal customers, including the languid maxi dresses adorned with muted floral patterns, the feminine blouses teamed with the flared trousers, the high-neck blouse that’s been very successful recently, and the suede skirt available in a rich orange color. She also experimented with lingerie motifs bringing forth the satin tops and flowing dresses that looked so sensual and romantic. Black see-through lace-y fabrics have also been used to create those feminine dresses available both with a mini and maxi length and making a perfect cocktail party look.

Satin was used in abundance in this line-up, but it did look especially amazing when made into the slip-dresses and the skirt and vintage blouse duos that gave that party girl look to the models. In addition to all those lightweight pieces, Stuart also offered a couple of edgy and structured dark leather outerwear options for the cooler days of spring, as well as textured skirts, blouses and robe-dresses that radiated a certain rock star allure.

The same party mood was preserved beauty wise as well: makeup artist Aaron de Mey for MAC managed to create an innocent look ditching the foundation and instead putting the focus on the peepers that were highlighted with highly saturated pastel eyeshadows. The hair was polished with center parts and loose, low ponytails styled by James Pecis.
