AFTER TAKING A CLOSE LOOK AT ALL THE EARLY FALL COLLECTIONS AS WELL AS THE FALL/WINTER RUNWAY SHOWS, THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT SHEARLING IS SET TO BE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR TRENDS THROUGHOUT THE SEASON.
No matter where we look, shearling enjoys a strong presence on everything from clothing to accessories and literally keeps things cosy. For early Fall, designers have us craving warmth. Chloé increases our anticipation by showing an outstanding patchwork cape made out of Mongolian fur and Fendi comes up with an innovative treatment for its backpack. J.W. Anderson decides for an exceptionally gorgeous shearling dress whereas Altuzarra rather keeps it understated.
Fall/Winter isn’t much different. From Kenzo to Rochas we covet luxurious shearling. Acne Studios flight jacket reminds us of the early Alain Delon and is proof that men can also be an inspiration for women’s style. Gianvito Rossi introduces a full-blown furry peeptoe bootie for the colder days whereas Gucci still holds on to summery vibes with wooden flats. Shearling is a major thing to keep an eye on this season and it would not be surprising if designers tried to also infuse this trend into the next summer season.
