Color continues as a standout trend for spring. We saw a variety of bright hues—surf colors like orange and aqua—along with a refreshing new palette of pastels. Mint green in particular took the spotlight in both ready-to-wear pieces and accessories.

3. COUTURE INSPIRATION
Classic couture, particularly the designs of Cristóbal Balenciaga, was another big inspiration this season, where it took on a contemporary form. We saw a variety of capes, voluminous shoulder sleeves and peplums on tops, dresses and pants. The designs still managed to look modern, and many of them were paired with sporty accessories.
4. ARTISAN DETAILS
Designers added an artisan touch to clothing for spring. The looks felt truly unique and handcrafted whether through eyelet, embroidery, mixed embellishment, guipure lace, crochet, collage or patchwork.
5. SINGLE-SOLE SHOES
Designers paid homage to Manolo Blahnik this season and his classic single-sole pointy-toe pump. The 90s-inspired silhouette feels very feminine and new after seasons of sky-high platforms.
