There’s a retro-cool trend showing up in the latest designer collections and it’s all about being spot on. Carine Roitfeld (former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris), has long been a champion of the polka dot. Here she is exuding quality and class with a discreet nod to the dot. She looks timeless and sassy and totally cool.
Marni’s designs for H&M cross the dotted line to incorporate colour and shape in unique ways. How good is this? Clever Marni – they would of course!
Spots and dots come in all colours and sizes with a huge variety of combinations. Bold and attention seeking, tiny and elegant, the effect can vary. Even spots equal old school class, sheer fabric prints are whimsical. Not all spots are evenly placed – just ask any leopard. Givenchy SS17 collection showed what can be done. Teaming print and colour equals dazzling synergy.
Balenciaga’s flirty shirt pairs up well with a skinny pant and tailored jacket showing a discreet degree of on-trend attitude.
If you’re looking to be spot on with a low key approach, there are some signals you can send without going completely dotty. Check out this Comme des Garçons wallet.
Or, you can keep it your little secret with a lingerie indulgence.
Skilfully applied in the right measure, a soft spot will bring a modern edge to your look and mood this season.
