Spring Collections 2017

Spring is here, so we can finally pack away our throws, coats and boots to make way for shorts, spaghetti-strap tops and dresses. And we’re happy to report that this year’s Spring / Summer 17 collections aren’t just bright colours and florals. We sat front row at Mercedes- Benz Fashion Week and rounded up our favourite collections we saw on the runway. Check them out! 

Marianne Fassler

One of the biggest names in the South African fashion industry is Marianne Fassler. Being the doyenne of SA fashion meant her show was packed and as it began, we all knew things were about to get significantly interesting… From silk fabrics to vibrant colours and patterns – not excluding the the plain, simple and minimalistic items – her collection has it all. Best still, her designs are so unique with a highly refreshing take on fashion, style and creative.

Quiteria & George 

It’s one thing to love something on the runway, but the true question is: can you wear it off the runway? It was a touch-and-go situation with the phenomenal Quiteria & George spring collection. Although we can all agree that they created some fabulous designs, unless you are as fierce as they are, it might be a challenge to wear them out. However, their collection still had some stunning pieces we should all have in our wardrobes. To top it off, their spring night wear was absolutely to die for. Yes, florals were included but it’s done in such a mod way that even Miranda Priestly would have no choice but to smile.

Narok NYC

Narok NYC’s spring collections definitely had a lot of the ladies in the audience very excited. What’s better than a good-looking model in a well-fitted suit or garment? Not many things in life, we’ll tell you. For the gentleman, rocking a suit this spring has been made all the more possible with these Norak designs and versatile colours. We particularly loved the navy blues and white, not to mention the head wraps – nice touch! And in case you didn’t notice, this spring we are tossing the formal shoes out and pairing our garments with neutral-coloured sandals. It’s all very exciting really.

If there’s anything we didn’t anticipate, it’s how hot navy blue is for spring. Who would’ve known, right? We all love denims, but you haven’t seen jeans and navy blue done like this before… Vizuvlgvds’s S/S 17 collection had a ready-to-wear look and feel – if the garments could’ve been on sale after the show, they would’ve been sold out. The attention to detail made each item sheer perfection, strolling down the runway.


The Intern by David Tlale

If you love fashion, then you most definitely know about the show, The Intern by David Tlale. The intern designers have come a long way and should be proud they made it to MBFWJ17. True to the fierce yet super stylish and wearable clothing we know and love David Tlale for were the interns’ own unique looks and styles. We absolutely loved the pieces below – notice how blues are definitely making a stance this spring…


Beach Cult By Joanna Hedley

What’s spring without swimwear? Beach Cult by Joanna Hedley mesmerised the audience with its beautiful swimwear pieces. Screaming all things spring and summer, the colours are absolutely stunning and vibrant – you would definitely feel like a goddess in any one of these pieces. There’s also a mix of one and two pieces, giving us plenty of options to pick from and cause a scene at any poolside or beach. Who wouldn’t want at least one of these in their swimwear collection?
