Mostly shown on a black canvas designers have come up with the loveliest of fall proof floral prints. From delicate wallpaper roses (Dolce & Gabbana) to a wide range of wild flowers (Gucci) and from larger than life printed on silk (Valentino) to tiny flowers on a floor sweeping dress (Giambattista Valli). Real life romantic (Michael Kors) or abstract and fierce (Saint Laurent); floral prints make up for a classic, feminine and delicate autumn ensemble. Now how bold do you like your bouquet?


Trend Report FW2018: Nomad meets Folklore meets Eclectic

This autumn prints, patchwork and eclectic colors make up for a folklore spirit. Who knew Chanel’s tweed look could get such a nomadic touch or Stella McCartney would ever get this countryside-ish? Vivid graphic prints at Dior and Calvin Klein (known for their cleaner looks) too. For other brands such a Etro and Missoni this trend comes more natural. Feeling the folklorist inside of you? Show it off in long and lean, cosy pieces. Don’t hold back when it comes to mixing prints (let Etro guide you) and opt for a vibrant yet seventies color palette to make it a fall proof ensemble.

Nothing says chic like a good cape. It speaks of style, status and a kind of surprise effect to it. And you can skip the Harry Potter or Medieval references right away; cape are the coolest thing again. Just look at the list of brands that revived this fashion piece. Givenchy, Saint Laurent and Missoni al proved to be supporters of the look. Thinking of joining in on the fun? Know that two roads lead to Cape Town. Either go with stiff, classic and powerful (Christophe Lemaire, Givenchy, Loewe, Nina Ricci) or opt for cosy, comfy and soft (Missoni, Isabel Marant, Erdem). For a walk in the park on a perfect autumn day. Keep it cool. Cape it!

More is more, the bigger the better, go big or go home; this trend is for everyone who either can’t decide what to wear or can’t stand the winter cold. It’s time to layer up, tuck in and wrap up. Just click through our gallery and see how the stylists backstage at Balenciage, Calvin Klein and Marni worked their layering magic. Remember the Joey from friend meme that was all over the internet right after the Balenciaga show? Well, he’s the ultimate hero for this trend. Sure you can wear a skirt with a shirt, a vest, a hoodie, a wind jacket and an oversized coat. The cold won’t get to you and if you spontaneously decide to go out you’ll at least have some clothing options. No need to show off your figure/silhouette, just let your sense of style breathe through the layers and the colors.

Trend Report FW2018: Long & Lean

Brands like Jil Sander and Valentino have been preaching this look for seasons, yet now it’s the look for fall. Long and lean silhouettes are popping up everywhere. Midi dresses worn over flared pants (Valentino) or body tight maxi dresses (Victoria Beckham). A trick to make the whole look appear even longer and leaner? Add a skinny scarf, wear it around your neck and toss it over your shoulder. Instant coolness and extra (optical) inches. Another one: wear everything in one color (as seen at Valentino) for an extra chique, fresh and minimal appeal.

So remember we discussed color codes last week? We spoke of how orange and blue are popping up everywhere. And how orange and pink hues form the ultimate summer palette. Well, we’ve got another color combo for you. Denim blue and butter/corn yellow seem to work pretty amazing together as well. Just click through this streetswear gallery and you’ll see how good of a team they form. Think about it? An all denim look with just a hint of yellow (in the form of a hat, a canvas bag or some sneaker laces)? Not a bad idea right? Feeling blue? Add a splash of yellow and don’t let it get to you!

Trend Report SS2018: All Out

What might be ‘all out’ for one person could be pretty basic to another. Fact is everyone is putting their best foot forward when in comes to streetstyle during the couture shows. And so we spotted countless mindblowing, jaw dropping outfits on the streets of Paris. Some perhaps a bit too glam, but all floor sweeping and head turning. All out in something completely crystal embroidered, fully sequined, decorated by ruffles and layers, off shoulder, with a high slit, in Valentino red or bright yellow. All eyes on you which ever room you step in.

Trend Report SS2018: Formal with a twist

Of course there’s nothing wrong with some grey colored office attire or a black skirt suit. But wouldn’t you like to spice things up a bit? Just a little? Wear that grey suit deconstructed with the sleeves tied around your waist. Opt for a duo colored look decorated by pearls. Pick a shiny silver suit. Try something off shoulder but with buttons. Or just cover yourself up in a suit in baby blue or light pink. Cause even with formal dress codes you can still play around a little. Just use your creativity and your fashion sense. Keep things proper and cool at all times. Spice the style game up during office hours and have some more fun on the work floor.

Trend Report SS2018: Prairie dresses

A puffy shoulder, a rounded collar with a few stodgy little buttons, proper sleeves and a neat length. They might seem a little dowdy at first sight, but fact is these throwback dresses are the hottest summer trend. Dresses (or even long skirts and loose blouses) with a fifties kind of feeling that get a modern touch by the bags, belts, sunnies and shoes worn with them. Perfect for just about any occasion; from dinners at your in laws to date nights. For the latter: just cinch your waist a bit, unbutton here and there, wear your hair down and choose the appropriate heel length. Even a dorky prairie dress can make you look extremely sexy.

Trend Report SS2018: It’s all in the details

An encrypted necklace (Balenciaga), a logo Swarovski belt (Gucci), a branded zipper (Marc Jacobs), a logo printed on a pair of neon socks, a print that when seen from up close turned out to be the letters of the brand. Whoever sat closest to the catwalk could spot the most logomania items. Details the largest fashion houses used to put some extra focus on their names. A simple and smart trick to brand your business and increase sells (showing off the labels your wearing wasn’t this hot since the nineties). Anyone who loves a little extra detail to an outfit could also love the clash/mix of fabric textures (as seen at MaxMara, McQueen, Calvin Klein). The perfection of certain zippers (Alexander Wang), buttons (MaxMara) and cuffs (Louis Vuitton). As well as the cutest, most detailed accessories, like a lamp handbag at Dolce & Gabbana and the bright colored pop jewelry at Versace. Look closely, pay attention and you’ll discover there are so much more layers to a collection than meets the eye.
