Trends ss2010: slim silhouettes
Although models usually have a slim silhouette already, for ss2010 a few designers made their models look even taller and thinner than they normally are.
At Missoni’s fashion show the clothes with maximum lengths accentuated the models’ slim figures. The girls were wrapped in lots of layers as well. They wore long cardigans on top of long dresses, that only left a small part of their legs uncovered. The fact that Angela Missoni mostly used one shade per outfit added the feeling of the girls looking slimmer than ever.
Besides Missoni, many other brands had long slim pieces in their collections. Etro, Calvin Klein, Blumarine, Roberto Cavalli, Alberta Ferretti and Oscar de la Renta showed some great examples. Most of these were long feminine dresses, made of ultra-light and airy fabrics to make the outfit look less stiff.
Flowers or sequins were the finishing touch on many of these silhouette-accentuating outfits.
