Get inspired by these fresh-off-the-catwalk trends and our favourite pieces that bring the looks home for spring.
With the buzz of the world’s premier fashion weeks still making headlines and Vancouver Fashion Week fresh in our minds, we’re turning to the runway for our next hit of interior design inspiration. To help, Lisa Tant, authority on all things fashion and VP of Executive Services at Holt Renfrew, recently gave us the scoop on her top trends for Spring 2015. Ahead, the season’s best design picks—hot off the runway—and how to recreate the look at home.’70s FunkBell-bottoms, fringe and acid hues dominated this season’s catwalk, setting the stage for a timely—and surprisingly stylish—‘70s revival. Forget the shag and all-over linoleum and opt for one of these throwback pieces that take the decade’s grooviest trends from kitsch to chic.Sleek MinimalismClassic silhouettes and no-fuss fabrics never go out of style and this season’s collections embraced exactly that, with structured pieces that transition seamlessly from the office to cocktail hour to weekend brunch—all dressed in white. Get the look at home with multifunctional, streamlined pieces that nod to the original masters of minimalism themselves: Scandinavia.Flower PowerWe’ve made our love for floral quite clear, so we were more than thrilled to see the spring-ready print covering everything from fitted trousers to carry-all totes. Keep the trend looking fresh at home with a more abstract interpretation or make like the runway and infuse a vibrant mishmash of colour and pattern in a single space.
