Spanish premium fast-fashion brand (Sfera), known for being able to stay on-trend every season while maintaining its good quality of clothing and affordable prices, recently launched its F/W 2016 collection for both men and women.
The collections, ranging from decadent romanticism to bohemian grunge, showcases exquisite pieces that are perfect additions to your holiday wardrobe, or – who knows? Something to look forward to unwrapping from underneath the Christmas tree.
The spontaneous mix-and-match of various prints and colors of fashion pieces in the Women’s Collection is once again brought back this season, after making a short cameo in the past Spring/Summer Collection. Exquisite tailoring, extravagant embroidery and leather straps are essential for an ostentatious bohemian look from decadent romanticism.
This trend is achieved in the mash-up of strong, tailored trousers & blazers, and the feminine floral shirts and crisp blouses with bell sleeves and ruffle details. The retro feel of the collection is emblazoned on each piece, giving it a worn-in, lived-in look in order to add a touch of glamour and quality.
Upholstery fabrics, large tweeds, floral prints with dark backgrounds, geometric patterns, and tiny print patches play a leading role in this trend. The leopard print cannot be forgotten in this collection, as it appears both boldly – in billowy trapeze dresses – and with subtlety –in pleated skirts and long coats.
Casual meets sporty is the most popular trend of the season, giving the entire collection a more modern look and feel. The fashionable but sporty aesthetic is evident in floral bomber jackets with sateen finish, knitted A- line skirts, formal trousers with a white stripe down the side, and various other technical garments.
The après-ski look, the usual street style look for mountainside sport activities, include funnel-neck tops and wide- ribbed jumpers. Black and white compose most of the collection’s color palette, but hints of cognac, burgundy, and navy are injected here and there among the pieces.
Bits of rock ‘n’ roll are inserted into several garments, such as tweed pants and metallic finishes that give off a more youthful look.
Four trends inspire the Casual department of the Women’s Collection:
Bohemian grunge. The grunge look is back with the essentials, such as skinny trousers, the Biker jacket, plaid shirts, ripped denim jeans, subtle lingerie, and combat boots. These pieces can be customized with embellishments, patches, or pop rock-style pins, giving them a more fun and relaxed touch.
Canal Saint-Martin. A relaxed, sporty style, with comfy fabrics and garments like the bomber jackets, varsity jackets, and cotton skirts and t-shirts are combined with floral prints and Breton stripes that are reminiscent of the young Parisian hangout, the Canal Saint-Martin.
Khaki. The khaki color adds to a twist to more feminine garments and elements like lace, embroidery and pleats. Combined with the subdued color are military accessories like army buttons, skinny jeans that resemble cargo pants, and structured jackets.
Masculinity. Somber colors and textures such as tweed, stripes, and the Prince of Wales checker breathe life into maxi garments combined with mini skirts. The pantsuit ensemble is made more feminine in this collection as tulle, lace, and ruffles serve as subtle embellishments.
(Sfera) Men releases two new collections for the Fall/Winter 2016 Season.
City sunset. The newest color for Fall is the subdued tone of Camel, which is supported by khaki, renewed greens, ink blues, and mid-greys. Burnt orange highlights certain pieces from the collection. Outerwear, accompanied by overcoats and wool-blend fabric, present new shapes that drop into a structured, tailored fit that is ready for colder weather. Thick shirts and knitwear also make up the collection, in time for temperature drops on holiday travels.
Fall forest. Forest green and deep blue are the two main colors that make up this trend, mixed in with a light burgundy. Wool and cotton blend with technical fabrics for outerwear. New styles on outerwear emphasize collars and certain details, specifically on jumpers and jackets.
Smart Sfera Men. In its most elegant line, the dominant colors are shades of blue and grey, which we find on shirts, sport coats, trousers, and knitwear. In terms of shape, the new trend is the knitted jacket with sport coat lapels and the band collar in shirts.
