Spring 2017 runways were showered with retro beach-inspired designs. Miu Miu featured retro swim caps, while Altuzarra showcased lemon-printed frocks.

Another variation featuring the intoxicating scent of roses was Garden Rose by Aerin which featured blends of various roses and geranium. In continuance of the floral theme, Nest Fragrances presented Black Tulip in a floral bottle filled with scents of amber plum, pink pepper, patchouli, and Japanese violet.
