“Spreading colour, print and happiness” is Oasis’ plan of action this spring/summer. Their multi-faceted collection, which will be gradually arriving in stores from now until the summer, is a wonderful mix of florals, embroidery, and lots and lots of stripes! Cold-shoulder, ruffles and tiered hemlines were some of the main features in the collection, as well as this season’s It piece the slip dress, which Oasis styles over simple tees and with lace up Ghillie shoes. Tailoring is big with the collection offering modernised matching jackets and trousers in pastel colours. Sleeveless detailing, cinched in paper-bag waists and wrap belts add a feminine feel to these looks. Oasis Design Director Clive Reeve spent several months in the South of France, honing in on all things nautical and French, this has definitely transpired in the ss16 collection, with nautical stripes in abundance throughout.
The most show-stopping features of the collection is the collaboration with London’s Victoria & Albert museum. “From hand-painted 18th century prints, to wardrobe works of art.” This collection of dresses created by Oasis’ design team is based on hand-picked prints chosen from artwork housed in the V&A. This stunning collection of dresses will arrive in stores in April and is priced from 50 to 100 euro. Oasis have also collaborated with Keds to create the ultimate stylish yet comfortable summer shoe. This collaboration sees a use of metallics, animal print, pretty crochet and of course, breton stripes.
A spring/summer collection that will leave you longing for long summer evenings, the bluest of skies and scorching sunny weather. The collection is available in stores now, with further lines being added weekly over the next few months.
