2020 Vision: a look at Brown Thomas' Spring Summer presentation

Got the new season in your sights? We've got the lowdown on the must-have trends at Brown Thomas' Spring-Summer 2020 presentation, where Fashion Director Shelly Corkery outlined her vision of effortless, modern dressing for the season ahead.

A clean slate:

Modern minimalism returns with ‘Clean Future’, celebrating the purity of clean lines, neutral tone and utilitarian essentials. Belted shirt by Bottega Veneta, €780.

Skin deep:

Choose red leather, yellow leather, or any leather you like so long as the colour is bold, bright and anything but neutral. Manu leather trousers by Remain, €330.

Step back in time:

Not for the first time, fashion revisits the ‘80s. With bold silhouettes and bright tones, ‘Exuberant 80s’ is for girls who want to have fun. Dress by Rotate, €330.

Ruffle up:

If minimalism leaves you cold, 'Neo Victoriana' offers room to play with florals and ruffles and enchantingly maximalist silhouettes. Blouse by Isabel Marant, €240.

Urban safari:

Exemplified at Sportmax, the 'Modern Utility' trend fuses utilitarian styling with luxurious hardware details, oversized pockets, and an unexpected fluidity for ease of wear. Dress by Sportmax.

All in the details:

Drag your look into the new season now, with some on-point accessories. Micro and mini bags return, trainers go streamlined, and a patterned neckerchief or fringed scarf adds instant '70s chic. Bag by Marc Jacobs, €390, trainers by Nike, €100, scarf by Boss, €99.

Consider this:

From the traditional Irish lacework used at Alexander McQueen to fringed trims and crocheted embellishment, there’s an haute hippy feel to the ‘Considered Craft’ trend. Blouse and skirt by Zimmermann.
