UPDATING S/S 2020: a dressy vibe

UPDATING S/S 2020: a dressy vibe



Première Vision's recent Updating survey brought into focus the leading trends for Spring-Summer 2020. 


The Athleisure trend, underway for a few seasons already, continues, and now moves to a more pared-down and holistic approach. Casual wear is given a refresh, emerging in a more elegant version and concentrating on supple and fluid materials such as viscose or softened linen blends.


Yet at the same time we also see the emergence of a dressy trend. Although this direction is more segmented, it is nevertheless clearly identifiable as one of the coming season's leading trends in the Updating survey.


Here, a selection of fabrics and leathers to update your SS 2020 collection in line with the dressy trend.



A trend marked by bold, fully assumed creative choices



This trend is addressed to a strong and committed woman who dares high-impact colours such as the flamboyant brights - *red and *howling orange - which proved particularly popular in the colour survey for the coming season. Among the trend's key silhouettes: fluid viscose pants with a full-bodied fall paired with a draped top in a sheathing stretch knit - two fabrics that rank amongst the key textiles in the survey.

Plays on draping and knotting



The dressy trend markedly re-appropriates its familiar codes. Yet while silhouettes tend to be slender and body skimming - as for example in a long draped dress - comfort is emphasised thanks to supple, flowing materials.

or barely iridescent 90's-style heel-strap pumps, reflecting a move to more subtle and evanescent shine.

Graphic and structured dressy looks



Along with this strikingly flowing and fluid silhouette, we also see the emergence of a more structured and graphic dressy approach. Here, the silhouette proudly embraces a head-to-toe look in strong, full colours, as in the new jacket-pant suits, one of the key outfits for the upcoming season. Cuts here tend to be sharpened, as in a long blazer with pronounced shoulders worn with straight pants or, for the truly daring, biker shorts.

These pieces can be worn with a delicate lingerie top in silk satin to play on lightness, a fluid draped top in silk jersey, or a transparent lace top played like a delicate see-through layer.

Bright colour combinations ideal for monochrome or colorblocked looks, to offset with chic accessories in rich full colour. Here, for example, we can envision pumps with chunky cubic heels in matt leather.

A dressy direction is clearly shaping up as a key emerging trend. This direction will also be interesting to test over the next autumn winter season, to assess the seasonal impact of this offer.
