Spring/Summer 2015 Trend

 What’s in for this Spring/Summer?

 

70’s
The groovy and retro style of the 70’s are back more than ever this Spring. From Studio 54’s jumpsuits, to the hippie chic artsy vibe of boho glam, to yes even bell bottoms, the 1970’s nostalgia dominated most runways.

Picnic Plaid
The print for this Spring is the “grown-up” gingham, with a fresh spin to the classic picnic pattern. From Altuzarra’s sweet baby blue, to Oscar De La Renta’s oversize prints, designers stayed in check.

Kimono literally means “thing to wear”. The Japanese inspired dress is as comfy as it is chic. Dresses, jackets, tops, the built-in judo belt is everywhere this season.

Behind The Scenes of Viv Magazine Volume 9

For Viv Magazine’s February-March 2015 edition, we decided to shoot with Wild and Free Baby Wear for the fashion editorial.

Wild and Free Baby Wear
Wild and Free Baby Wear is a classic bohemian line of outfits for little girls (and now little boys) ages newborn to 12. The brand stirs from the traditional pink dresses and embraces the freedom and wilderness that children often carry and reflect. Created and designed by Haitian-Canadian mother Melanie Brierre in 2014, the garments  are designed and handcrafted in Haiti. The pieces are “envisioned in a rain forest, on a beach, or on a lazy barefoot setting” explains Melanie, “I want my daughter A’Sya to get her hands dirty, to dance in the rain, to fall and pick herself back up. That is the ‘wild and free’ I want to celebrate and nurture”.

Wild and Free Baby Wear is available for sale at Abako store in Petion-Ville.

 

The shoot
To complete and emphasize the wild and free theme, we opted for Wahoo Bay Beach Resort as our location on a sunny Saturday morning. Unlike most shoots, this one was a particular challenge since it was our first time working with kids. As you can imagine, our “young models” preferred running around playing with each others instead of standing still under the beating sun. However the super moms who were present along with the Viv team did an awesome job and the outcome of the shoot came out beyond incredible.

Check out some pictures of the shoot:

Crop tops, maxi skirts, cut offs, and head pieces pretty much sum up Coachella style. This indie-rock festival however is one for all kinds of style and fashion. Here are some ideas and inspirations.

Hippie/Boho Chic
This is the traditional Coachella style. There is no such thing as “too hippie” so go ahead and embrace your inner boho glam.
