Although the summer weather is only just approaching, for the fashion world, Autumn/Winter is well under way. Here is your mini guide to the trends you’ll see this coming Autmn/Winter 2015.
Last year, the faux fur coat was massive- expect it to make an even wilder comeback for AW15 as Louis Vuitton’s yeti creations and Stella McCartney’s leopard print prowled the catwalk. Thick, over-sized and effortlessly chic, update your winter coat with something more fashionably fuzzy.
The conventional teaming of a cardigan and tee won’t work this season as a new, more exciting layering rears it’s head this season. Re-think your wardrobe, clash a bright teal polo neck with a camel coat, grab your favourite slip dress and pair it with a band t-shirt. Hermes and DKNY demonstrated this perfectly.
Adding a touch of elegance this fall, many designers decided to emulate the grandeur of an era steeped in romantic clothing. High, ruffled collars, delicate lace and ankle-skimming skirts were all seen on the catwalks from Givenchy to Victoria Beckham.
Beginning in Spring/Summer 2015 with paisley prints, crochet tops, fabulous flairs and elasticated tops, the 70’s trend seeps into fall with rich reds, fringed accessories and big hair- expect to see pieces by designers like Burberry, Anna Sui and Jonathon Saunders.
All About the 80’s
Return to retro this AW15 with a high fashion selection of flamboyant, fearless and unforgiving creations. Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton adopted that same attitude of ‘glam good times’ with sparkling cocktail dresses and puffed shoulders.
Complimenting the ever-popular 70’s trend, patchworking comes into it’s own this season, with the likes of Chloé, Valentino and Moschino all giving their take on patching things up.
Just like this year’s Met Gala theme, we are looking to the East next season- from dragons on silk and unlimited gold, the oriental-inspired influences shone through with Tom Ford, Oscar de la Renta and Valentino all embracing the trend.
Winter might be a little darker, but it needn’t be duller as designers like Dior, Saint Laurent and Gucci demonstrated. Be bold with clashing hues and pops of primary colour this AW15!
The White Blouse
There really is something idyllic about the white blouse. On the surface, it’s refined, simple and easily teamable. Yet look beyond that and you will see a classic top filled with endless charm. Dior, Chanel and Michael Kors all embraced the crisp white piece.
Gucci embraced geek chic this season with Margot Tenenbaum, one of legendary director Wes Anderson’s most prim characters. Berets, glasses, twee tweed and cute pussy bows all gave a delicate nod to the ultimate good girl.
