Political statement pieces, trips down memory lane, and red as the new black. Here’s a look at the trends that are sure to dominate this coming season.
Ready for Red?
So long pink, this Fall it’s all about a much more dominate colour. Red was seen all over the F/W’17-18 runways from the monochromatic tribute looks at Givenchy to the youthful verve at Oscar de la Renta. Whether it be on the lip, covering accessories or worn in a full outfit, we’ll be seeing a lot of this primary colour in the coming six months.
Say it loud, say it proud. Fashion has a lot to say about the world’s most current affairs. Whether you’re pro nasty woman, a la Ashish or co-sign with Christian Siriano’s “People are People” statement, let the world know where you stand with style.
All That Glitters…
Crystals, chainmail and sequin are sure to light up many wardrobes this coming season. The idea of standing out during nightfall was all the rage on Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant and Balmain runways. Whether it be a short and sassy cocktail dress or a pair of slouchy boots, sparkly evening wear is most certainly in.
Belts + Fur = Fabulous!
Belted coats are a major trend this Fall/Winter but belted fur coats are an even bigger trend than that trend. Fur has obviously become a mainstay within fashion with the trendy outerwear taking many forms from vintage to funky prints. This coming season, luxury labels such as Miu Miu, Rochas, Sacai and more, encourage us to up our fur coat styling by adding a belt.
That’s So ‘70s Plaid
As seen on the runways, designers went mad for plaid. However, instead of the 90s plaid we’ve seen on runways past, this season is all about the bright and bold plaid that took over the 1970s. Whether it be on the skirts and dresses at Jenny Peckham or full pattern-blocked looks at Marni, 70s plaid is the print of the season.
Luxe Leisure Suit
Athleisure isn’t going anywhere and designers have proven just that. This season, the cozy off-duty look is given a lush upgrade from designers such as Ashish, Chloé, Lacoste and even newcomer Rihanna. Whether the tracksuit is coated in sequins or styled with pumps, next fall is making a case for comfy chic.
Suited and Booted
Suits are all the rage with the wardrobe classic taking on many new forms. Pronounced shoulders, pressed slacks and double-breasted silhouettes make quite the statement at fashion houses like Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang and The Row.
Leather is often associated with grunge and toughness but this season it’s given a softer feel. Nappa leather was seen from Hermès to Valentino giving the timeless material a more feminine appeal.
