As you may all know, trends are very impermanent – season by season, year by year. What are the biggest trends to expect? I’ve tried to select and highlight several points, which will be forming a new trend in the upcoming season. Designers regularly provide a number of new products that are on the eyes may scatter in different directions.
So I’ve decided to choose for you a selection of 6 of the brightest trends collected from the Milan, Paris, London and New York catwalks. Although the fast fashion and the luxury fashion brands are starting to work with these trends for SS 2015, and it will continue into mainstream fashion through 2015 and into SS 2016. And today the season FW 2015-2016 is in focus.
The cold season of 2016 will bring noble shades of beige, grey and green colours. Here are dried herbs, desert sage and pond with reflection, as well as very interesting colours of oyster pink, grey quartz, butter, coffee, pomegranate, eggplant. And if you want to add the image brightness, you can please yourself with cashmere rose and violet orchid.
The main fashion trend of the season FW 2015-2016 is Modern Seventies. When it comes to setting the mood and attitude of a season, colour is essential. And this trend is not an exception. It offers clean, contemporary and minimalistic aesthetic of the 1970s.
Modern Seventies represents nostalgia of simple pre-digital times of our hectic world, where clean lines and natural materials are dominated. Textile textures and warm seventies-inspired colours provide cosiness associated with a decade. Modern Seventies beauty is very natural – less makeup and a more natural finish to the face.
This season, designers have not forgotten that the winter will be frosty and harsh. In this case, they suggested being warmed with a long fur scarf that using belt can pull in the waist. Will it warm during the snowfall? I'm not sure, but certainly, it looks luxurious. And a scarf is a very versatile thing, Michael Kors recommends wearing it with sweaters and skirts, Thakoon offers a variety of colours, and Jason Wu advises to mix different styles in one look.
3D ornaments and décor
It seems, that to surprise the discerning fashionistas is quite difficult because they've seen all kinds of decor. But designers do not stand still, keeping pace with progress. And along with 3D movies and TVs, emerged a 3D decor with shimmering sequins. If you still doubt, that 3D-material is good for fashion, go and read my article about 3D-PRINTED FASHION.
Victorian and Edwardian styles
Victorian influences evident in the clothes back in the spring-summer season, when the Edwardian style was although in the air. Now both of these thoroughly entered the fashion houses and dwelt in designer clothes by Monique Lhuillier, the Cynthia Rowley, as well as from most Italian designers: Alberta Ferretti, Emilio Pucci and Bottega Veneta. And these styles are shown through dresses and blouses with a high neck, length midi, lace accented waistline, which shows a feminine look and strength of that period.
Oversize tailoring and masculine style
The standard representation of the female silhouette - is an elegant, form-fitting line. Designers often go beyond the scope of this standard, and this season is no the exception. Coat with exaggerated big round shoulders, oversized coats and pants, masculine jackets and trousers in which there are a lot of walking folds, combined with women's blouses - is the outcome of the imagination of Proenza Schouler, Gucci, Givenchy, Carven, Alexander Wang and others.
Classical brocade has become one of the most anticipated trends. Filled with modern forms and bright colours, it does not look old-fashioned, but rather reflects a modern royal style. Designs by Erdem, Mary Katrantzou and Simone Rocha look even conceptually. Brocade dresses best suited for night events and special occasions.
