Designers lifted chino out of the trenches for Spring 2015 and gave it a chic twist. Long a staple of military uniforms and safari looks, the utility fabric was given a posh makeover at Ralph Lauren. The designer reimagined the safari suit in a streamlined metallic organza, and the cargo jacket in orange gazar. Marc Jacobs played with the idea of prettifying uniforms, adding couture touches like peekaboo eyelet, cabochons and silk duchess. Sparkly oversized buttons embellish oversize pockets and epaulets. The message is clear, khaki sheds its dusty connotations in favour of feminine flourishes this season.
