In a move away from minimalism, designers have decided that more is more for SS14. Mary Katrantzou worked with the French atelier Lesage on OTT embroidered florals, bright color hit back at Miu Miu, and Marc Jacobs announced head-to-toe embellishment. Consider this a dressing-up box for grown-ups.
The rule is simple this season: any colour goes, so long as it shines. Designers must have been dipping into the candy box, as discarded wrappers surely inspired Altuzarra, Saint Laurent and Simone Rocha, and their golden (and silver) moments.
