When evanescence flirts with substance
Transparency takes on new body. Organza’s natural firmness is accentuated for silky transparencies.
For spring summer 17, transparencies show off a strong character, firm hands and resolutely fancy visuals;
voiles are enlivened with yarn effects, irregular stripes or cut-yarn jacquard motifs.
Suitings are finer, and grow subtly translucent; wools are airier, for summer jackets with an elegant freshness.
A transparency to be worn on outer-layers is also emerging in active sports, with wind-proof or waterproof/breathable tracing-paper aspects.
A season calling for a partnership between lightness and substance.
