With autumn on our doorstep, a new season as usual means a wind of change in the design world. You are looking out for something fresh, opening another chapter in the fashion cycle. What will mark your step into a new season this time? See the answers from world leading fashion designers.
We can see a strong trend in coming back in thoughts to the best of the XX century, especially 50’s and 60’s, to bring back nostalgic shapes and colours. This also means incorporating original vintage pieces into the newest creations, giving a new life to what appeared to be long lost.
Colours: Grey, Navy Blue, Camel, Black and Khaki are the colours to look out for. We have already seen a few hints starting from this summer – khaki shirts and jackets with a distinctive military look, bold determined lines of Balmain and Chanel, which in Yves Saint Laurent can be see softened with a more feminine feel . These colours are represented internationally at fashion shows and advertising campaigns from Kinder Aggugini and Tommy Hilfiger to Amanda Wakeley and Chloe.
Satchels: These epitomize vintage and go great teamed with a blazer and some jazzy shoes. Excellent ones can be found in Vivienne Westwood, Burberry but our hears are really captured by dazzling Mulberry collection of beautiful satchels coming in many shapes and colours. as Mulberry’s satchels for men have been seen to be the favourite of many fashionistas such as Britain’s own Alexa Chung.
Brogues: A very special favourite of mine, you can truly never have too much brogues I alone and have four. These little gems and turn any outfit into a classic vintage set. Coming in different designs and colours these are definite favourite with indie men and women as well as being featured on the runways of Marcus Constable and on starlets like Emma Watson and Fern Cotton.
Jackets: More specifically jackets with fur can also be referred to as the new ‘it’ flying magazine. These are going to be great and have already been seen around the catwalks by Burberry but also in shops such as River Island. The combination of faux leather and faux fur has been around for years and is now making a spectacular comeback just in time for the new season, as this can also be seen with leather boots with fur showcased by and sold at a cheaper priced by our favourite high street shop new look.
Wedges: Wedges provide a platform without being difficult to walk in. these are a favourite of mine especially the wedges made by ACNE and Jeffrey Campbell, and are sure to be seen all over the season and provide many with trusty support.
With all these new trends already entering the catwalks and stores, it is now safely time to start shopping for the new season, but we need to remember to wrap up warm but keep some money left over for those important January sales.
