Season of florals, polka dots and water-coloured blooms

United Colors of Benetton is out with its Spring-Summer 2018 collection at all its stores across the country. As the summer winds billow, SS’18 collection promises to evoke the spirit of the warmer season with its Spring Summer ’18 collection. Effortlessly transitioning from the glitter and shimmer of the Autumn-Winter’17 collection to the chic, contemporary and playful sillhoettes of Spring-Summer, the collection brings the sense of style and celebrates the history of Italian craftmanship once again. Womenswear is all about femininity meets modernity, with playful stripes ranging from classic nautical to variegated stripes,floral, flowy summer dresses and much more, inspired by nautical elements. This season mixes and matches the contemporary prints; polka, clear linear florals, water-coloured blooms, colour blocking with quirky tees and distressed denims; all bathed in summer colours with pops of red and fresh yellow. Each piece brings an unexpected strong feminine touch to a contemporary silhouette. Menswear this season embraces classic and contemporary prints in many ways throughout the collection; from checkered shirts, stripes or bold floral shorts to the iconic colour block polos and the spiffy military green printed shorts. These easy to style pieces truly translate that sophistication lies in simplicity. Some of the key inspirations apart from prints and checks include textured fabrics in tie & dye and denims with pocket detailing to add the right amount of panache to your wardrobe. The colour palate has shades of bordeaux reds and oxide yellows moving through to tonal inky blues and pops of water-colour blues hues as the months warm up. Summer white and pastels take a new approach to occasion-wear mid-season, while buttercup yellow, tropical blue and neon shades dominate high summer.
