Full of mystery and free expression in GUESS jeans, the season begins as a ‘Travelling Fair’, turning into a ‘Wild Romance’ for the woman, while the man takes the role of a ‘Victorian Nomad’. Adventurous and fantastical, the collection emphasises a somewhat seductive aesthetic, putting a modern twist on traditional style. ‘Travelling Fair’ prioritises stylish comfort, using stripes as a prevalent pattern for both him and her. Womenswear consists of figure-hugging jeans and frayed waistcoats with intricate detail through sequins and diamante, turning simplicity into glamour. Menswear enhances a tougher look, favouring used denim and classic tees. The soft colour palette includes a multitude of greens, tinted pinks and chalk blue, contrasting with deep shades of grey, jet black and charcoal blue.
Dreams become reality in ‘Wild Romance’ with flirty clothing and accessories, adding adornments of lace and candy accessories. Floral prints are first and foremost, appearing on simple and ruffled dresses and bags. Colours range from beige, khaki, with flashes of light corals, purples, blues and pinks making a girly feel.
