It’s springtime already and we cannot wait to channel some of the latest trends, among which bomber jackets are definitely our favorites. An incredible number of labels relentlessly brought bombers back for spring 2016, and Spanish retailer Stradivarius is one of them celebrating this trend in its latest spring 2016 collection.
Along with Stradivarius, fast fashion retailers such as Zara, H&M and Mango, as well as haute couture labels such as Gucci, Saint Laurent, Dries van Noten, and Acne, chose to explore the territory of bomber jackets, opting for satin variations, mesh options and floral patterns used on silky fabrics. While some even dared with quirky embroideries and furry inserts, Stradivarius enjoyed focusing more on simple lines and ethereal spring-ready hues, adding a touch of simplicity to this quite eccentric warm season.
It is also worth noticing that, while bringing in bombers, Stradivarius also made sure each one of its spring 2016 proposals could be in tune with most of the seasonal trends, among which pastel colors, peplum cuts, athleisure motifs and even girly backpacks surely stand out of the crowd. All of Stradivaius proposals are designed under the sign of youth, without sacrificing style and comfort.
Alternating motivational captions such as ‘remember to find beauty in simplicity’ and ‘start fresh’, the latest Stradivarius line-up is perfectly embodied by the label’s spring 2016 lookbook as well, which wisely combines each one of the proposals with both a delicate white setting and cherry blossom trees. The cherry flowers make a recurring theme within the collection, with the bomber jackets frequently featuring small floral patches or botanical-inspired motifs. Not for nothing, the collection’s main hue is pink, as proven by the athleisure pants and single-breasted jackets as well. Peacocks and italic captions reminding us to be ‘just like honey’ adorn most of the jackets too, reinforcing the overall springtime freshness present in the collection.
As for the fabrics, Stradivarius opted for both silky materials and more low-profile denim, also using contrasting collars and cuffs to make a big impact. Perfect to wear with a striped t-shirts or a pair of plaid trousers, the versatility of the bomber jackets will make it extremely easy to wear them both with super-casual outfits and slightly more polished looks. At the end of the day, these spring 2016 style essentials could be regarded as go-to ensembles, as they can effortlessly become the perfect staples one needs to wear while wandering around the city on a daily basis.
