greet the spring season with colorful, fanciful garments that beckon warm weather
and tropical breezes. Styles ranged from halter-top pant ensembles to dresses
with one shoulder or spaghetti straps. Also popular on the runways were corset-tops
and variations of the bra-top. French designers seemed to prefer lace, chiffon
and silk prints with tropical designs, and they embellished fabrics with beads,
embroidery and ruffles. Throughout the various collections were brilliant colors
such as bold red, bright yellow and vibrant purple and fuchsia. Whether your destination
is a spring gala or a tropical island, the spring fashions from Paris will inspire
you to infuse your wardrobe with pretty, breezy and colorful attire.
For spring and summer 2004, designers
offered fashions that show off the feminine form while providing a whimsical flair.
As is fitting for the warm-weather season, plenty of skin was bared by halter
tops, off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder garments, which often were bright and
colorful. Chiffon continued to be a favorite as it was shown as halters, over
blouses, and as underlays and overlays for pants and skirts. Sequins, beads, fringe
and feathers effectively embellished tops and skirts that varied in length from
thigh-high to the knee. Also seen on the runways for spring and summer were flattering
abstract patterns that added pizzazz to evening gowns, short dresses and short-shorts
colorful spring flowers accented many dresses and ensembles, solid blues and greens
were muted with gray, which gives a colorful haze to many spring fabrics. Some
of this might sound a little color bland, but there was an intrigue that whetted
the fashion appetite with freshness.
