A Season of two halves speaking in the fashion sense. One side sees the return of the clean uncluttered minimalist look. So good news for those of you who favour neat tailoring and plainer fabrics. A more sober look indeed but equally very stylish and cool. Do a one-eighty and boom we have blinding colour, feathers, sequins and jumbo sized gowns! Fashion Theatre! Once this trend is diffused into more relatable wear the look is more playful and fun. This is a look for the girl in the woman who likes the dressing up box, fun and not too serious.
A winter rainbow
Colour pulsates through AW/19. We see wild splashes of intense colour. Not is it the reserve of a season gone by but for now too. The Autumn/Winter shows in all major Fashion capitals opened with sunflower yellow, turquoise, burnt orange, bougainvillea pink. Real spice, earthy colours are hugely within fashion also. If bright colour sends you reeling back then you’ll never see black, navy, grey disappear but think of adding a dash of these afore mentioned brights to liven up the core hues.
Leather in all it’s creations. Big names such as Hermes and McQueen have really embraced this look. Vegan leather in quality PU also included for those who would chose the alternative .Rino and Pelle, a trusty brand to adorn our rails for many a season have fantastic real or faux leather in jackets and coats predominantly. Robell have produced a leather look trouser in their well-fitting trousers. The fashion pack advise we should all invest in a pair of good leather trousers for AW/19.
Pattern and surface texture
A tirade of tartan, houndstooth, check and plaids paraded the runways. Our B Young brand include a check stretch jersey skirt and jacket combo to be worn together or separated. Fanciful feathers were seen countless times. Feather coats and capes, attached and adorned to garments. Worn in the hair. Sequins! Shine out in this reflective shimmery fabric surface but by day too!
Our favourite winter go-to
Our complete and utter can’t be without it piece. The Jumper. Enjoy more fitted styles. Big baggy shapes. Those classic Brit patterns such as cable knits and argyle. Contemporary neo grunge knits with chains attached. Wear them them loose, tucked in or enveloped under a large blazer or duster coat. Our knitwear buy is always pretty wide and varied to cater for all tastes and budgets.
So what’s new? (branding)
