Brilliant colors of fiery red, royal blue and sunflower yellow are balanced by more subdued tones of beige, cream, black, white and tan, and reflect the quite yet arresting splendor of a desert horizon
Alice & Olivia’s SS 2016 collection is a happy romantic romp through the sunlit desert at dusk. With a feminine and lady like silhouette of long flowing maxi dresses, generous peasant skirts, wide leg trousers and ruffle dresses this collection is sultry and slightly androgynous. Brilliant colors of fiery red, royal blue and sunflower yellow are balanced by more subdued tones of beige, cream, black, white and tan, and reflect the quite yet arresting splendor of a desert horizon. With the fleeting Frida Kahlo moments found in the fringed edged skirt and layered maxi dress covered in an aztec like embroidery, and the demure yet sexy shorts suit in the floral sunburst print, the pieces in the spring summer line up are exquisitely bohemian and free spirited. The line also nods at the ever popular seventies trend so dominate in fashion, but brings to it a refined yet playful approach which can be seen in the delicate floral poncho, the fitted high waisted suede skirt, the crochet dress where we see a repeat performance of the sun burst pattern, to the striped pants suit, to the flowing floral patterned two-piece trouser set, to the sateen rainbow palazzo pants. And it is all paired with ultra sexy gladiator boot pumps in subtle shades of gold and taupe. Add a boho bag in a soft beige, or a striking black and white clutch, or a two toned tote in red and tan and you have a collection that is a dreamy celebration of femininity, strength and beauty.
