Say the word “lace” and most would immediately think of items from the bridal and lingerie territory. However, Spring/Summer 2020 has a fresher take on this perennial of feminine dressing with its casual and less precious approach as seen on the lace accents on the leather trenchcoats and jackets at Alexander McQueen or the fluoro skirts and cut-and-sew dresses at Christopher Kane and Koche respectively. Meanwhile, at Givenchy, a guipure lace top embroidered with appliques come in the most eye-popping colour combination of nude, electric blue, purple and bright orange, and paired with a gorgeous leather drawstring skirt. Here, we show some of our favourite buys for this trend and inspiration you can take from the runways.
