Riga, Latvia – For the Spring/Summer 2017 season, the Latvian fashion house Deeply Personal presents an opus that is nothing less than solid. And though it is far from what one would consider as being revolutionary in its construction or in it aesthetics, it remains nonetheless an attractive body of work.
There are bits of bold red, taupe and even a singular black. However the whites and the many tones and shades of blue are the colors that really matter most. They are transposed onto natural fibers, which are dominated by cottons and denims. The white is used as the base, while blue is used as complimenting stripes or as the entire color of the denims.
In this writer’s opinion, the ruffles are extremely untimely. They look as though Deeply Personal took note of the ruffles trend and just decided to add them in order to be considered as part of the movement. Unfortunately, they do not add anything of pertinence or of significant consequence to the collection. Their addition seems so “forced” and “last minute”. That said the collection can honestly do without them. However, they ruffles are there (for better or worse).
The trousers are straight and amply cut. The belts that accentuate the waist are a little more than spaghetti strings. Their simplicity is very welcomed. But here is the situation with this collection. This is one that is more suited for a showroom presentation or a jazzed up happening. Due to the extremely high commercial nature of the collection, there truly is no need to show this particular type of work on the catwalk. However, this writer insists upon noting that even though it is not really work made for the catwalk, it still remains one that is extremely strong !!!
