Designers Susanne Ostwald + Ingvar Helgason took to celebrating spring as the season of rebirth with punches of color, pattern, texture + whimsy. For their Ostwald Helgason Spring 2014 collection, they created a floral pattern (row 1, pic 1) + one with balloon animals (row 1, pic 2), which at times were in a very, ahem, compromising position (row 2, pics 1 + 3).
For texture, the designers created textured organza with an ombré effect of opaque to sheer (pic 1 + 4) that simply gave you a layered look without the weight of too many layers (my favorite looks). As for color, besides that of the actual clothes, their accessories of bags + shoes, in collaboration with Aldo, were as colorful, graphic + fun.
