TAKING A LOOK BACK TO THE FALL WINTER 2015 SHOWS, IT APPEARS DESIGNERS HAVE DELVED DEEPER SCOURING THE WORLD FOR THE CURIOUS OR EXOTIC. THIS FALL WINTER SURPRISES WITH OLD FRIENDS IN NEW PLACES.
Alessandro Michele of Gucci overwhelmed with by-gone traditions of another generation, Dries Van Noten took us away on exorbitant safari trips, Alberta Feretti created Regal Gypsies and Dolce and Gabbana used their local knowledge on Italian families. Lanvin tells a Nomadic story, Victoria Beckham studies deconstruction and the modern Goth girl is reborn at Alexander Wang. This Fall Winter we are spoiled for choice with a treasure trove of trends.
Eclectic patterns and beautifully layered clothing meet rich colours that pave the way for this season’s nomadic atmosphere. From Alberta Ferretti to Lanvin, bohemian never felt so regal.
The body con silhouettes, as we know them, dissolve for fall. Instead we are introduced to volume and exaggerated shapes. Misplaced, deconstructed and modified, this season’s clothing will add new life to your wardrobe. We suggest the reduction of accessories as these silhouettes speak for themselves.
From Alexander Wang to Gareth Pugh to Haider Ackermann, designers are inviting us over to the dark side this season. A generous use of black, intensified makeup and dramatic accessories are the news. Top-to-toe black may frighten Mrs Wintour, but lets face it: A little game changer never hurt anyone.
A new Safari will hit the stores for Fall Winter and this time it adds a fashion forward twist to an adventurous classic.
The new old-fashioned
This fall season, designers from Gucci to Chloé are focusing their attention on your grandmother’s wardrobe. Woolen hats, tweeds and checked fabrics set the tone. Complementing accessories for this trend include good manners and a sensible pair of shoes.
Girly Style Code
A youthful innocence finds a big presence during fall season. Carefree and easy-going, this trend blazes its way into our wardrobes. From Dolce & Gabbana to Mary Katrantzou to Chanel, designers discover their younger side.
Contradicting to all the opulent trends, fashion needs a base. Sharply tailored and mostly monochrome they are next level basic with fashion forward cutting guides. Classic and well proportioned, flattering it seems, will never go out of fashion.
