Spring is here!
Four trends make up our responsive Protest Spring Summer 16 collection; Rebel Pack, Caravansary, Marooned and Jungle.
It’s time to get tough, as fashion collides with the outsiders to create Rebel Pack. Inspired by the classic skate and café racer motorcycle cultures, this predominantly black and white range is symbolic and saturated with attitude from the city streets of downtown LA.
It’s a little more relaxed with vibrant, boho, hippy and gypsy flavours as they are invited to travel the ancient Silk Road with our Caravansary theme – inspired by the large gatherings of traveling traders who gathered to rest and exchange cultures as they made their way along the trade routes. With Moroccan and Asian influences – and a strong Ibiza flavour – it’s the perfect collection for those relaxed summer days and nights full of fun, stories and laughter.
Beautiful deep lagoon blues, shells and tropical birds – the paradise of a desert island – Marooned brings a shipwrecked element to the collection with inspiring graphics and prints.
And in tribute to the ever popular floral trend, which appears across every type of garment this season, Jungle injects a vintage Hawaiian feel, full of stunning greens and photographic prints of exotic plants, leaves and flowers.
This season’s swimwear range offers more choice with the best-selling bandeau style as well as a larger selection of underwired, halter and triangle in inspiring all-over prints, and crochet and knotted embellishments. There’s the ever popular animal prints in black and white as well as colourblock and denim, providing endless possibilities.
Tan lines are no more with our new wrap-around bikini tops, which allow you to wear it as a halter or over the shoulder. And we have some super-trendy, active styles – inspired from sports bras and crop tops – perfect for active beach fun or just looking cool.
This season’s Mix & Match comes in striking monochrome with poppy red highlights and a bohemian floral stripe in super summery colours. They’re the true essence of freedom – make your own combination of the twelve tops and nine bottoms including halter neck, triangle and bandeau style as well as a special two-way tie top. It’s your choice! A beautiful selection of sarongs, sandals and bags tie in with the mix and match prints.
Continuing with our style stories, which appear through the whole collection, the bikini prints lead the way and translate across t-shirts, dresses and tunics – including new kimono and off the shoulder styles. Skirts are back and so are flowing, feminine shorts in bohemian, festival prints and retro, snow wash skinny jeans.
Accessorise with new, ultra lightweight flip flops, hippyish sling bags and funky, printed trilbies that tie into both the collection and the suitcase collaboration.
And ladies, whether you’re a gym junkie or not, you’ll soon be dressing like one as the trend for active wear worn as day and weekend wear grows. Following the success of Protest Fit we’ve created an extended collection of fashionable fitness gear, including a new, cross-over yoga and leisurewear range full of burnout sweats, layered tops and stylish jersey short pants with a wider, lower crotch. Perfect for whatever you love to do.
