Change was in the air for the Loris Diran Spring/Summer 2017 collection. In the past few seasons, Diran presented his designs on the runway. While always an enjoyable show, this time he opted for a presentation. It was a great opportunity to get a closer look at his clothes. As a result, this was a wise choice.
Casual yet elegant was the theme behind this Loris Diran Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Diran featured suiting in a variety of silhouettes in muted summer colors. The color palette was reminiscent of the beautiful dimming colors at dusk. The structure was much more relaxed then when compared with collections from Suit Supply or the Hart x Hart collection. Softer shoulders and non-traditional shapes was the theme, offering a change from the traditional suit. Thus providing a nice alternative for the upcoming season.
Along side these pieces where the more casual elements. Oversized jackets, shirts and sweaters were shown over joggers and other slim fit slacks creating athleisure looks. However these looks seemed a little more refined than what is regularly seen on the streets today. Despite this softening, the collection seemed to take on a more masculine feel than previous ones.
Favorite looks included the two toned blazer, the oversized zip cardigan with matching jogger pants and the blazer with light embelishment around the collar and pockets. The latter looked like a masculine interpretation of a ladies Chanel blazer. And just like Chanel, it will be highly coveted.
