I guess its time to face facts and accept that summer will soon be a distant memory, but the autumn is upon us now doubt and we will soon be reaching for those leather boots and, cosy coats and hats fluffier than your pet cat! Rest assured, thanks to Fashion Week 2018 we have some top tips for you to be looking your best yet! Check out some of the highlights.
Whatever look you’re going for, mummy, daddy, brother, sister, auntie and uncle of all autumn/winter 2018 fashion trends here. Animal print prowled over an astonishing amount of runways across NYC, London, Milan and Paris, like a Noah’s ark for only the chicest passengers. Leopard-print coats and leopard-print shoes will undoubtedly be the two most prevalent ways this trend presents itself on the high street, but there’s an abundance of snake and python patterns, zebra, cheetah, faux-croc—some of which come in classic, neutral tones, but there are more wild and wonderful multicoloured versions out there too. Take a look at Tom Ford’s racy red leopard print! Not forgetting Victoria Beckhams chic number!
Christopher Kane, Simone Rocha and Fendi all opted for a high shine finish for autumn/winter 2018, with trousers, jackets and skirts all squeaking down the runway. At Christopher Kane, black patent leather was teamed with a muted colour palette of beige tones, while at Simone Rocha it was all about the one patent piece – namely an olive-green mac, with balloon sleeves and embroidery detail. Fendi also favoured a glossy finish for its raincoats and puffa jackets, as well as knee-high boots, miniskirts and bags, all in the classic Fendi check.
Designers including Marc Jacobs and Francesco Risso at Marni brought all the joy by showing off their skills as colourists – beautiful, unusual palettes were everywhere, reminding us of some of our favourite artists. Full-on Keith Haring neon at Prada, refreshing David Hockney pastels at Eudon Choi, tonal blocking a la Rothko at Marni and amazing Matisse style primary colour combos at Marc Jacobs.
The most dominant of all fabrics this season was leather which come by way of skirts, trousers and trench coats. It doesn’t have to be in black either!
High-shine fabrics were key on the catwalks this season, whether vinyl, latex, plastic (a key look for summer 2018) or leather – offering a quietly dominatrix appeal. Take a look at the designers below.
Moschino, Prada, and Marni brought the all the colours of the rainbow to the runway this year with the brightest of colours. Off course, not limited to clothes, shoes, hats, gloves, and scarves were also a big hit!
Tweed really is an old time favourite that never falls to the bottom of the wardrobe. Pair it with something unexpected: a leather skirt, a feminine dress, a sporty roll-neck. Maybe even rummage through grandmas wardrobe!
