PURE - Looking at Trends for Spring/Summer 2015

Twice a year Pure is held at Olympia in London as a buying mecca for the independent shops and boutiques.  There are fashion shows and trend talks on how the statement fashion pieces are evolving from one season to the next.

Here is a glimpse of what we will find in the shops next Spring/Summer.

Shifting from geometric prints to brush strokes and bold paintings, bold stripes and spots.

Bare shoulders and high waisted skirts and shorts.

Shoes - flat and pointed, chunky flat sandels with thick straps and solid soles and graphic printed flats and court shoes.


Oversized jackets with soft gathered skirts.

Top to toe jumpsuits in silky fabrics.
