Is This Gucci? No, It’s Uterque Fall/Winter 2016-2017 Collection!
Spanish brand Uterque’s fall/winter 2016-2017 collection is finally available, and it gives those who fell in love with Gucci’s FW 2016-17 collection something similarly gorgeous to get smitten by! The Uterque fall 2016 campaign undeniably exudes Gucci’s Seventies-inspired vibes, with geek-chic garments and pleated skirts dominating the entire line-up.
As quoted in Uterque’s lookbook, “the line will offer a collection with a clear vintage feel, symbolist minimalism, diverse materials and expressivity with gold, silver, stones, charms and semi-precious stones,” which is indeed good news for those who, among the many fall/winter 2016-17 trends, are specifically waiting to showcase all of the most Seventies-infused outfits they (will) possibly own.
With a color palette that mainly sticks to browns, dark purples and blues, this Uterque fall/winter 2016-17 collection is also extremely versatile yet always elegant, with staples ready to get mixed and matched with one another depending on the occasion/date you are going to attend. Although what the lookbook displays is a line-up that is undeniably strong on matching colors and on suits, all of the proposals can be worn either with more casual staples, such as plain denims, or even with more elaborate garments, such as evening frocks or gowns.
Culottes, elegant shirts with jabot collars, and oversized, furry coats are just some of those Uterque must-haves that will go along pretty well with anything we already own in our wardrobe, whether it’s a mostly casual closet or a more urban-chic one. As for the culottes, a.k.a. the ultimate 2016 essentials, they also serve as good outfit ideas for the transitional seasons, both for the pre-fall and the upcoming pre-spring seasons.
Sweatshirts with contrasting collars and delicate V-necklines, mid-calf pleated skirts and ultra-formal double-breasted jackets treat us to the most sophisticated side of the mid-Seventies, wherein the ‘matching shirt and cropped bell-bottom trousers’ combination was the key to success at any kind of party.
Elegant and urban blouses with Nehru collars and subtle vertical stripes, along with Oriental-inspired floral shirts, sum up the entire ‘vintage meets modern minimalism’ concept, providing us with single go-to staples to wear for the years to come, or whenever we feel like adding a little vintage touch to our otherwise fully contemporary outfits is the best option.
Lastly, the Uterque fall 2016 collection is worth mentioning for the astounding amount of must-have accessories that it has overwhelmed us with. From tres chic bluchers and loafers with low chunky heels to platform ankle boots, from floral envelope bags to detachable furry snoods, the collection is overloaded with some of the most covetable accessories of the season, and we already love it!
