As seen in womens’ fashion, the major change observed this year was the introduction of wintery items and fabrics in the Spring/Summer 14 (SS14) collections. This indicates a clear mind-shift in the collection product mix and the will of designers to take into consideration customers’ needs. This new assortment strategy will undoubtedly be adopted by retailers as they always face a challenge to sell their SS collections from December onwards.
Common elements were visible in both women- and menswear clothing this season, namely the Luxury Sportwear trend, the ‘hot white’ colour, the bomber jacket as a must-have item, the omnipresent floral patterns and the cocooning sleeves. However, as stated by Sarah Harris, Fashion features director at British Vogue, “What most designers are doing is creating an on-going dialogue, so it’s a continued story that threads through menswear and womenswear – there are definite parallels between the two and why wouldn’t there be? It’s the same hand”.
