SS15: PREVIEW

SS15: PREVIEW

It is quite a something to recap all the shows and list all the new trends (or if I may say variations since this season didn’t offer major shifts). But there are still things that I want to point out. One of them is this recurring theme “soft lines vs hard lines” seen everywhere between...
