Escada Spring/Summer ’16

Escada might be turning 40 soon, but it seems as if it’s dressing a much older woman.  The Spring/Summer 2016 collection seems to miss the trends- had this been presented a few seasons ago with the 50’s trend, I’d say it was on-point, but most of the looks seem to miss the mark of the 70’s and 90’s trends we’re expecting to see on the runways.  The silhouette of the 70’s became freer than that of the 50’s.  What does seem on-trend is the fringe of the black and white look, perhaps the double breasted suits, and the jumpsuits.  The color palette and prints also seem to target a demure granny.  The black and white dress is pretty, but it is immediately overshadowed by the light blue atrocity.  Two glove-covered wrinkled thumbs down.
