Many fashion insiders were disappointed by the F/W shows. When attending events, there was less of a crowd and not the usual hustle and bustle that it usually brings.
Despite that, some of the most beautiful and thoughtful collections were presented, and common trends were seen throughout. Some popular trends for F/W were bright colors, latex, feathers and shearling. Hats and fully accessorized outfits were also seen and people ooogled and ogled over them.
Because of how fast things happen, collections were instantly seen and posted and even copied! The F/W styles won’t drop into stores until September, but who is to say we can’t get inspired right now?
Summer is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean a person can’t make a mood-board for the future. Because seasons are becoming less and less of a noticeable thing, most pieces can be worn throughout the year without conflict.
Latex vibes were seen at every show from Mugler to Saint Laurent to Marine Serre. Since a large population of people have some form of a latex allergy, why not try waxed leather, pleather or recycled coated plastic?
Bright blues, pinks and purples were also seen in color blocked forms and as a color for most pants. Not a fan of bright colors? Try pastels. A pastel t-shirt and jeans with floral patterned heels sounds like a cute outfit for Easter.
Some brands are still showing shearling and different bird feathers on the runway, but a simple alternative if that’s not your vibe is ribbons and tulle. Designers like Molly Goddard and Mulberry put bow-like details onto their suiting, hats and purses.
Whether or not you liked fashion week, there is definitely a new movement happening which is showing the industry in a new light. Some people might yawn at whatever the future of fashion holds, but chances are you’ll be seeing a lot more of what Fall Winter shared with us.
