From hero pieces to showstoppers, the spring/summer 2024 collections are a celebration of craft, sensuality, and the many facets of female power.

The Scarlet Letter

The spring/summer seasons often showcase pastels and softer shades. However, this time around, designers are making a case for bold reds—a hue that lends itself to many interpretations. Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton presented a collection highlighting feminine power, with one standout look featuring a red leather bustier molded onto the body like armor, paired with a silky pencil skirt. Red is also a signature color for Valentino, as Pierpaolo Piccioli demonstrated by making a t-shirt dress look as glamorous as a gown. Schiaparelli closed their show with a striking lipstick-red shift dress.

Pump Up the Volume

This season, designers are urging us not to be afraid to take up space. Some of the most arresting looks feature exaggerated, larger-than-life silhouettes. Rick Owens continues his exploration of form with pleated pastels, sculpting the fabric into doughnut shapes. Nicolas Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton embraces Eighties eclecticism with billowing skirts and balloon sleeves. Marni and JW Anderson take a more whimsical approach, with Francesco Risso sending out 2D doll-like dresses and Jonathan Anderson molding plasticine into clothes.

Sheer Ecstasy

In contrast to the sexed-up looks of recent seasons, the spring/summer 2024 way of baring skin feels softer and more romantic. Think sheer, gauzy dresses that exude sensuality. Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons presented gossamer-light frocks with delicate wisps that floated behind the models as they walked. Givenchy played with the dichotomies of hard and soft, sheer and opaque, creating a serene and sophisticated collection. Alaïa mixed ladylike looks with thong-baring kink.

All the Feels

Amidst the dominance of AI and technology, designers are championing the artistry of craftsmanship. Rich embroideries, embellishments, and textures took center stage on the runways. Leading the charge was Matthieu Blazy at Bottega Veneta, who showcased pom-pom-embellished crochet dresses. Dries Van Noten elevated minimal silhouettes with lush surface textures, while Francesco Risso's decoupage flower dresses at Marni exuded a charming sense of naiveté.

Vent It Out

Graphic cut-outs are making a bold statement on the spring/summer 2024 runways. Helmut Lang's radical work in the '90s, known for minimalism laced with a subversive edge, inspires this trend. Contemporary designers like Peter Do at Helmut Lang and Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski at Hermès embrace asymmetrical sections and slice them out of knitwear and leather dresses, creating sensuous yet sophisticated looks.

One Piece Wonder

Say goodbye to the catsuit and make way for the jumpsuit. This season, designers are rediscovering and reinventing this classic piece. Anthony Vaccarello at Saint Laurent drew inspiration from YSL's 1967 safari suit, creating workwear-inspired jumpsuits in khaki, tan, and cream. Victoria Beckham, Elie Saab, and Max Mara also showcased jumpsuits rooted in the utilitarianism of military fashion.

New Jeans

Denim remains a wardrobe staple, and designers continue to find new ways to innovate with this versatile fabric. Glenn Martens, known for his work at Diesel and Y/Project, has created dazzling denim designs by wire-twisting and tinting it red. Mugler, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, and Dries Van Noten have all reimagined denim, shaping it into alluring hourglass figures or cutting it with fine tailoring precision.

Legs for Days

Move over, miniskirts—it's time for hot pants to shine! Designers continue to embrace the trend of baring legs, but this season, they are opting for the shortest shorts possible. Miuccia Prada's latest Miu Miu collection transforms ordinary pieces through remixing proportions and layers. Meanwhile, Sabato De Sarno's debut Gucci collection features hot pants that lend a sleek, hyper-modern vibe to the brand.
