Plenty to look at when it comes to fashion for Spring
Editors are sharing the wealth when it comes to giving us the scope on spring fashion. Just two weeks ago Vancouver welcomed Lisa Tant for her spring talk on trends and this week it was Joy Pecknold’s turn from Fashion Magazine. True to form, Pecknold was fashionable in a in a white blazer over a blue button down with a patchwork denim pocket and dark green pants with matching patchwork in leather. Plenty in Kitsilano housed the event and showcased some of the store’s spring trends.
The breakdown for spring trends really is all about mix and matching. Pecknold hosted the event by introducing four local fashion bloggers from style common to better illustrate the trends. Florals and bright colors are here to stay for spring but an infusion of rich and dark colors are used for contrast to complete the look.
After Pecknold decoded what to look forward to as we start to see sunnier days, it was time to shop. Check out my favorites items for Spring from Plenty from the event in the gallery.
Partying with Skirts
The Armstrong sisters Mariel and Lauren is starting to make an impact on the Vancouver fashion scene with their fun and flirty line Partyskirts. A story of happenstance, the sisters created Partyskirts when their mom sewed two skirts together to fill a hole. The skirts began to garner so much attention from others that the sisters decided to create a collection that celebrates a youthful feminity.
The event to view their spring line launched at the Blubird store at the heart of downtown Vancouver. Supporters of the line showed up in a wide range of rainbow hued Partyskirts. The line mirrored designers Alice and Olivia’s whimsical garden feel for their collection. It’s not a surprise since the sisters settled in Los Angeles and New York for a few years while studying abroad before back to Vancouver.
The skirts were infused with luxury when it comes to its construction using 100% Dupioni silk. It’s always a great feeling to see a made in Vancouver label attached to a local line pushing Vancouver toward establishing itself within luxury fashion.
