Interview with Adélaïde Dubucq

Adélaïde Dubucq

What are the major fashion trends for the spring and summer seasons in 2015?
Some of last year’s trends are still valid this year, for example the more bourgeois style: which means that you combine different kinds of materials with, say, romantic lace in a beige or skin colour. Blue and white stripes are still hip, whether it be in form of a sailor sweater, dress or t-shirt. These can be beautifully combined with a denim jacket or a bomber jacket. Shine and glamour still exists in 2015 ….sequines, sometimes in silver, sometimes in gold, and with all sorts of embroidery to accentuate both plain and printed materials. In addition, the fashion world will be characterised by contrasts: on one hand one experiments with prints and colours, on the other hand very simple monochrome and graphic looks.

Which material will be mostly prominent this summer?
Without a doubt, denim! As a shirt, blouse, dress, short vest….and much, much more.

And which colour is the trendy colour this season?
Kaki is back. And also black and white. Either on their own or combined. Very chic!

Accessories shouldn’t be forgotten. Which must one wear?
For those that like the gypsy style, it has to be a suede handbag with tassels. In shoes, white sneakers are an absolute must such as the “Stan Smith” sneakers from Adidas.

And which outfit would you choose for the upcoming season?
I am a total fan of Overalls or “Jumpsuits”. These usually belong to male fashion, but this season they’re seeing a huge female comeback from most designers. I love those in the style of skinny 70’s flairs. They remind me of my childhood and of course the atmosphere in the Formula 1 pits. These trousers can also be worn in a wide cut and made out of airy materials. Wear them with or without a belt,. And some high heels and jewelry wouldn’t hurt… that way you emphasize the female side of this rather manly trousers!
