For Spring, Designers Are Taking Stripes In a Whole New Direction
One way to stay ahead of the fashion curve right now: Don some stripes. The graphic motif, which never really goes out of style, showed up in full force on the spring 2017 runways, seeming fresh and new. That’s because this time around, the look is less seaside laissez-faire and more urban-gal-on-the-go—darting down velvet pants at Nina Ricci, shooting across silk blouses at Balenciaga, and racing in all directions in Jonathan Saunder’s debut collection for Diane von Furstenberg. In other words, just run with it.
