Color on Trend: Aquamarine

By Alicia Nieto

Though it may not quite feel like it yet, the spring season is upon us which means flowers blooming, grass growing and of course putting together a new wardrobe! The perfect Spring/Summer 2017 line to examine first is Elisabetta Franchi. The line announces itself with golds, creams and a pop of red here and there. What makes this collection stand out is the show stopping introduction to a bright shade of aquamarine. The color is a beautiful compliment to the designer’s palette.

Besides the peppy color, the pieces distinguish themselves with a powerful femininity. This was accomplished with embellishments such as ruffled edges and asymmetrical sleeves. The combination of color choice embodies a fresh start to a new season, with a statement that is sure to become the new trend. Elisabetta Franchi’s complete Lookbook can be viewed on her website, along with video of the Spring/Summer 2017 Runway Show. I’ve included some of my favorites from the line and hope you enjoy them below.
