SOON THE SEASON WILL CHANGE, AND IN ANTICIPATION OF WARMER WEATHER, WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER OUR FAVOURITE TRENDS FROM THE SPRING/SUMMER CATWALKS, WITH STYLES STOCKED BY HARVEY NICHOLS. THEY HAVE DONE THEIR HOMEWORK…
This trend was seen across the catwalks. It has been beautifully translated into knitwear, but is also evident in many other product categories using differing tones for easy styling.
Armani Collezioni knitted jumper, £250, Givenchy printed T-shirt, £450, Lanvin wayfarer-style sunglasses, £229, all available online, Grenson brushed suede brogues, £200, available instore and online
The inclination to dress down continues, with emphasis on silhouette and fabrics to lift the style. A key player in the menswear trend for hi-low dressing.
Norse Projects rubberised raincoat, £170, Acne Studios wool and mohair blend trousers, £200, both available online, Jena linen blend jumper, £215, available instore and online
Rick Owens T-shirt, £225, Acne Studios T-shirt, £70 & Dior Homme aviator-style sunglasses, £300, all available instore and online, Garment Projects leather trainers, £115, available online
70s is one of the season’s most evident trends. Harvey Nichols have picked up on key elements of the trend, concerntrating on fabrics and shapes, as opposed to a literal interpretation.

With a focus on the décolletage, we saw an array of styles highlighting the one shoulder at Spring/Summer fashion week. This silhouette appeared in many different guises, from structured pieces to feminine evening offerings.

Designers have gone back to basics this season, with barely-there dresses taking centre stage. On the runway, we saw variations of the trend: lingerie dressing to mid-century undertones to a more hardened, punk-rock look.

Noir Sachin & Babi embroidered organza top , £395 & DKNY leather tote, £216, both available instore and online, Giambattista Valli floral-print skirt, £855, available online
There is a new perception of lace for SS16, it’s no longer refined and traditional in it’s mannerisms.
Paule KA lace coat, £750, La Perla lace-panelled slip, £475 & Paule KA lace dress, £515, all available instore and online
