Roksanda Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Serbian-born Roksanda Ilinčić is finally aware of her strength and refined tailoring skills, and she is not afraid to show it. Voluminous, colorful and with clear abstract references, the Roksanda pre-fall 2016 collection is, in fact, complex in craftsmanship and refined in style, as it features an array of outfits with the aim to give us something to wear from sunset till dawn.

Roksanda Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Experimental and wearable at the same time, each one of Roksanda’s proposals for pre-fall is elegant in mind and quirky in spirit, and is just what any working girl has always been waiting for: some daily outfits with unique details and one-of-a-kind design. Besides two classic sheath dresses in blue and black accordingly, the lineup is all about volumes, as it plays with wavy cuts, puffed and butterfly sleeves and balloon frocks, which ultimately give the transitional season an unexpected cheerfully romantic touch (after all, who doesn’t need a fresh flouncy short duchesse satin dress?) that is, moreover, mother and daughter-approved.

“We have a lot of mothers and daughters shopping together. “So there’s something the girls might like to wear, too,” she declared.

Of course, bell-bottom and palazzo pants are one of the collection’s must-haves too, as they got blissfully combined with tunics, classic shirts and collarless jackets. To prove her willingness to create a non-elitist collection that suits for all, Ilinčić spiced up the many bell-bottomed, as well as cropped palazzo pant outfits with high-waisted cuts and wide leathery belts, which can balance all the petite figures that are just so impatient to wear one of Roksanda’s proposals.

To further prove her collection’s versatility, Ilinčić also played with design patterns, spanning her color palette as an inevitable consequence too. Although mainly featuring pastel colors, where a darker Rose Quartz appears to be a proud protagonist, the lineup includes earthy and dark tones too, as they unite their forces in creating abstract patterns and lavish motifs.

Besides wavy motifs, most of the looks feature interesting floral patterns and botanical appliqués, as well as retro patchworks that just get along so well with the patent leather and silk fabrics. Buttons, belts and scarves work as unconventional accessories here, helping the color-blocking motif to enhance the fanciful lines of the silhouettes.

While leather, silk and cotton are the main materials used for the daily outfits, lace fabrics and organza adorn the evening proposals, creating some of the most haute couture pieces Roksanda Ilinčić has ever showcased. The collection’s jewel on the crown is the dreamy dress in floating pale blue organza (which Roksanda created in a limited edition of 20 pieces), the lace butterfly sleeves and bubbly appliqués of which definitely are red carpet worthy.

“I suppose it’s the nearest we’ve ever come to couture,” said Rokasanda regarding one of her greatest masterpiece, and we couldn’t agree more.
