Last week, Saks Fifth Avenue welcomed Colleen Sherin, Vice President and Fashion Director of Saks Fifth Avenue, to their Palm Beach Gardens location at The Gardens Mall. She joined the store for its annual fashion show and luncheon at Frenchman’s Creek Country Club to feature the Spring 2015 fashion trends. Colleen travels the world discovering the latest styles, inspiration and fresh new designers, so when we heard she was coming here, we had to get the latest fashion scoop straight from her! Read below for our fun Q+A with pictures from the fashion show and swing by your local Saks to see these fab looks in person!

What new fashion trends for Spring 2015 are you most excited to see in Saks?
Colleen: I always love a Bohemian 1970’s moment, so I am happy to see this decade inspiring many designer collections for Spring 2015. Look for free-spirited maxi dresses, hip-hugging flared trousers, suede, and fringe galore!

What is currently influencing fashion?
Colleen: The increasingly casual lifestyle that women are leading is having a major influence on fashion. Athletic references appear throughout the collections for Spring 2015, from athletic mesh to designer sneakers. This trend of Athleisure is here to stay.

What new designers should shoppers look for in Saks?
Colleen: We are excited to have the exclusive launch of Giamba, the second collection from designer Giambattista Valli, for Spring 2015. For Fall 2015, we will be adding Tomas Maier’s (the designer of Bottega Veneta) casual lifestyle collection to our new brand mix.
Can you give us a sneak peak into Fall 2015?
Colleen: For Fall 2015, we will be seeing Extreme Texture, with long-haired furs, including fabulous faux options, lofty knitwear, and nubby boucles & tweeds. The 1970’s trend continues; however, the 1960’s emerge as the newest decade of choice, with items such as A-Line dresses and mod boots.
Many thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach Gardens and Colleen Sherin for sharing the latest trends with us today! xo
