Denim takes on an elegant finish in skinny-fit jean form at Iceberg, while neoprene bikers are styled with supple leather handbags at Gucci and textured dresses express springtime chic at Christian Dior.

Prabal Gurung experiments with sheer/textured contrasts for a modern look. Meanwhile, utility jackets express newness at DKNY and Marc by Marc Jacobs applies the shade to a chunky pair of buckled shoes for a Springtime Seventies statement.
