Trend Report FW2010: add an extra layer

Though the minimalistic look is a big trend this fall, layering is the best way to dress yourself throughout the winter. Just put on a nice comfortable outfit and then start adding the extra layers. First a warm cosy vest, then a coat, a big knitted scarf and finally something to keep your head warm.

Many designers opted for the layered look. More than often it made the models look like wandering nomads, but in the end it made for a cool fall look.

The poncho’s and capes, that are hot right now, perfectly fit with the layered look. And a big chunky scarf will not go to waste this winter. If you’re not wearing it around your neck, you can always put it on your head like Haider Ackermann en Issey Miyake did in their shows.

An extra tip: if you’re going for the more is more look, don’t be afraid of clashing prints, materials or colors. The more diverse the pieces you’re wearing are, the better.

Paris Catwalk Fashion Show fw2010: Comme des Garcons

The first models that came on the runway at the Comme des Garcons fashion show wore corduroy outfits and hoodies with fur, which covered a big part of their faces.

Then a few printed suits, mixed with shirts and matching waistcoats came by.  At the back of some jackets the shoulders and waists were accentuated by black contours.

The Comme des Garcons trend for fall seemed to be layering. Many outfits had two pairs of trousers, worn on top of each other. One of them was long, the other shorter and much wider.

Long cardigans were worn under some jackets as well. Even a fur coat was visible from under a small jacket.

Apart from a pair of bright pink socks and shoes the collection’s colors were very modest (and masculine).
