The Summer 2020 trends you will absolutely love

The Spring Summer 2020 runways were filled with incredibly wearable fashion that can stay and be re-worn over and over again for years to come. The biggest keywords of 2020 are sustainability, versatility, and wearability rather than showcasing strictly artistic collections. More and more consumers are interested in practical fashion pieces that can be saved in their capsule wardrobe for future uses, the designers definitely listened. In comparison to previous years, the word "impractical" wasn't how the new collections were described.

Bermuda shorts, Leather patterns, clean lines relaxed tailored suits, and bras were only a few of the main trends presented in the shows. The lines between the seasons are getting blurrier than ever. While you were able to admire the beautiful swimwear, party dresses and coats were also presented. Many spring summer 2020 collections can be worn 12 months a year which furthermore proves the consumer's decision to avoid "one season" items. Let's not forget the great efforts of Victoria Beckham, Ancuta Sarca, Mariah Esa, and Duran Lantink to create eco-conscious fashion shows.

“I was 7 the day I cut a skirt for my mum out of a linen curtain. Here is the collection L’annĂ©e 97,” is how Simon Porte Jacquemus sums up his breathtaking S/S 20 collection, a celebration of colors and clean lines, hosted amongst a field of lavender flowers in the South of France and quickly went viral. No Jacquemus show would have been completed without a handbag moment. Many new bag silhouettes were presented with cross bodies, belt bags, and a different version of " Le Chiquito" mini bags amongst others. 2020 is a celebration of sustainability. Jacquemus, after 10 years of working with the same fabric manufacturer, decided to make some drastic changes. “They didn’t have a sustainable fabric that we wanted. Now, they do — because of the size of the order, I can make,” Vogue wrote back in January.

Stella Macartney presented the most ethical collection ever created by the brand. Loose blazers and a journey back to the '70s, lace dresses, and military looks took over the runway of the Opera Garnier. "The world is crying out for change and it is our responsibility to act now. The younger generation is standing up and telling us that our house is on fire and that we need to respond like we are in a crisis because in fact, it is a crisis" was the welcome note on the seat of every attendee.
