I absolutely loved the touch of disco glitz in the playful Spring Summer 2017 collection by Gabriel Vielma.
The looks were inspired by the kitsch glamour of the beauty salons in the 70’s and 80’s and is bright and colourful, while maintaining an air of the relaxed. Standout block colours such as pink, sky blues and sunny yellows, are complemented by Gabriel’s trademark prints, which for this season included cool stripes blended with hand-drawn flowers. And then there were the odd bits of metallic sequin, glittering silver lurex which brought the element of disco to the collection.
Vielma shows off his wonderful eye for texture and shape, with delicate trills and ruches, embroidery, beading and woven jacquards.
