MESH

By Madeline Poole, Spring 2016

 

Mesh was one of the biggest trends of the season which is another reason while negative space in nails was highly popular. This diagonal striping of color was meant to represent the various cut outs and mesh ensembles found throughout SS16.

We saw mesh overlays at Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, Versace, and Acne Studios, bright poncho like mesh pieces at Prada, Alexander Wang, and Proenza Schoeler, and colorful mesh sweaters at Sonia Rykiel and Valentino. There were also wide weave fishnet tights on the legs at Ashley Williams and Margiela and knee high cross hatched leather boots at Kenzo. Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Grey Matters, Greyfitti, Smartease, and “Sugar Fix." This nail features both negative space and a diagonal woven or mesh like pattern in a spring palette.
