Autumn/Winter 2017/2018 Fashion:
Let’s take a look at some of the key Autumn/Winter trends that emerged from Fashion Month. With Paris Fashion Week wrapped up, the lights ultimately went down on Fashion Month, after glorious weeks of standout shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Now it’s time to conduct a review and see what we are going to wear this A/W 17/18. Although many designers opted for ready-to-wear collections, they agreed on many details, and all of them presented a strong and outspoken woman, without giving up elegance and super feminine silhouettes.
Check out the top ten trends for the next season.
New York, Milan, and Paris brought us lots of men-style suits revisited for the powerful woman. Whether you prefer pinstripes, silk, tweeds, or opt for a no blouse look, there is something for everyone, as designers such as Zimmermann, Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren, and Lanvin showed us on the runways.
With a nod to vintage styles from the ’60s to the ’90s, including slip dresses, sheer pants, and beautiful long dresses, we have been reassured that the nude look will stay with us even during the cold months.
In a contrast to vintage, we find futuristic fashion. Metallic shades were a major element during fashion month, from simple details and sequins to a jump in space with Chanel and silver galore at Katty Xiomara.
This controversial material isn’t going anywhere. Whether real or faux, dark or colourful, designers incorporated furry details on coat sleeves, collars, skirts, trousers, and stoles.
If you are a fan of the Wild West, this trend is exactly what you were looking for. Get your cowboy boots and pair them with straight leg jeans and denim shirts, just like models did on the Calvin Klein catwalk.
If during the past seasons velvet was the favourite fabric for designers, now it’s time for some leather, a major trend for next winter. From suits and coats to trousers and dresses, Saint Laurent is just one of the many labels who used this classic, sultry material.
Browns & Neutrals
The fashion world’s love for the ’70s is still noticeable in the use of desert hues, brown corduroy and beige tweeds. Just take a look at Marc Jacobs’ and Ralph Lauren‘s collections.
Next to neutral shades, we find bold and bright colours ready to be mixed up and shown off. Move over black and grey, and say hello to orange and red.
Fashion got very political with slogans aimed at the US president printed on tops and sweaters at NYFW. In Milan, Versace showed support to equality and empowering women all over the world.
In addition to bold messages and cuts we found pretty, romantic, and feminine dresses, ready to remind us all women are beautiful and strong. Erdem’s collection is a perfect example of this concept.
