Posted by: Verónica Maya

We have been loving this trend for a while now and it looks like it won’t be going anywhere fast. Coming back with a splash, ladies and gents, we are happy to announce the return of TRANSPARENCY! This was a trend that we saw a ton of on the SS13 runways and we’re so excited because we absolutely love its sex appeal qualities. Designers gave us pieces with bold and discrete transparent cuts placed ingeniously across a woman’s body, providing us with the yearning for those perfectly romantic candle lit summer nights. Read on to see a sprinkle of what’s in store for you this summer…

Louis Vuitton is pioneering this trend in his latest collection with subtle hints of TRANSPARENCY as well as completely TRANSPARENT pieces.
