#BeSummerReadyFor2017 DOWNLOAD PDF

With the unveiling of Greenery as the colour of the year for 2017, the mood for spring/summer hints towards more healthy, outdoorsy and natural trends. Designers are moving beyond the clichéd florals to create earthy looks to offer the rekindle-with-nature vibe. Usher into 2017 with fluid fabrics and oversized chic silhouettes to sway in style. Hiral Oza spoke to prominent designers to find out trends that will take over spring/summer 2017.

Madhu Jain, Ragini Ahuja, Samant Chauhan, Sanchita, Shikha Ghalsasi, Sonam & Paras Modi


Madhu Jain: In the natural fibres segment – in which my work is rooted – I’d say that ivory and indigo will reign supreme. Naturally-derived colours are best suited for Indian climates, and who can deny the winnability of these two uber sophisticated shades!

Ragini Ahuja: Ivory and indigo. We have worked out a beautiful bohemian punk collection for SS17 with ivory, navy and shades of mushroom along with Ox-blood. Tan sheep nappa leather is an add-on in the collection.

Samant Chauhan: The colours in vogue for spring summer 2017 are olive green, sage green, ivory, off whites and subtle pastel shades.

Sanchita: Eggshell, nude, coral, yellow, blush pink, petrol, lavender, ash purple, navy and black are the shades that will trend in SS’17.

Shikha Ghalsasi: Natural nudes – beige, ecru, milk, nudes, dusty pink and light lilac will be the colours for SS’17.

Sonam & Paras Modi: Earthy colours along with monochromatic tones will be in fashion this season. Hues of burnt rose, shadow grey, lint, green tea and burl wood form the colour palette of our collection this season.
