Not the most easy going, soft & cosy material, but statement making nonetheless and perfect for those days when it’s leather weather!

Streetwear Trend Fashion Month SS2019: Fluo a Gogo

Neon is a thing again. Spotted on the streets of Milan, Paris and New York this day-glo bright color is all the rage. Kanye might have started it with his Yeezy range, Virgil Abloh took it to another level with his latest Off-White collection (see also the Blumarine and House of Holland SS2019 collection). Whether used on a long, floor sweeping black dress or as the main color of a complete tracksuit neon can be both chic and sporty. Wear it like Caroline Daur or rock this color like Eleonora Carisi. Neon yellow is a definite favorite (a turtle neck in that shade seems a safe bet), yet we’ve spotted some fluorescent orange, pink and green (the hair, the shoes, the bags!) as well. Are you ready to rock this statement shade? All eyes on you wherever you go. Fluo a gogo!

Trend Report FW2018: Eighties Leather Look

Filed under Fashion, Trends, womenswear

So we’re working a seventies palette, yet an eighties silhouette. Bold shoulders are back, as are the black leather jackets. The power woman silhouette came through strongly at Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant and Versace. Bare legs or a pair of skinny jeans and a bold jacket make up for the eighties look. But there’s more! Patent leather at MiuMiu, Haider Ackermann and Marc Jacobs proof you don’t have to wear color or metallic to wow your crowd. Black leather is your ultimate no brainer for fall. Oh and put on a matching hat for that extra style statement. Eighties redux with an ’18 touch.

Tweed comes in every shape and size this time around. Classic, statement making, short ‘n sassy; any piece you need is out there in tweed. XL at Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein. Ladylike and old school at Altuzarra and Chanel. Youthfull and colourful at Miu Miu and Prada. No holding back this time. Wear tweeds on tweeds (on tweeds) and even throw in a couple of other trends or prints. Miuccia Prada proofed that if you keep it safe on the check color palette you can go all out on hair color (bright red), statement belts (like two of ‘em) and bright ‘n shiny shoes. Tweeds might just be your new basic/neutral.

If you’re a fan of animal prints, this is your time to shine. Full on, head to toe animal prints fit the current fashion trend. From Balenciaga en Dolce to Beckham and Max Mara. Forget the sand colored classic trenchcoat. Why not opt for something a little wilder?! Make your autumn outfit a roaring one covered in tiger, leopard or zebra prints. You might even match your gloves, tights, hat and bag game (as seen at Dolce & Gabbana). Oh and a pair of animalistic pumps of course, to take that walk on the wild side.

Trend Report FW2018: Pleated picture

Pleats please we said and so here they are. Adding the right touch of edge and elegance to many midi skirts and dresses. Like the Valentino red dress (worn over matching pants) at, you guessed it, Valentino. Like the gray midi skirt that Sportmax gracefully gave a sporty touch in the form of a tight top, waist belts and a pair of gloves. Like the army green colored pleated detail that was part of a extremely mixed look at Sacai. Like the pleats that gave a sheer Lanvin dress just the right little extra. And like a pink pleated Balenciaga skirt we’d love to wear every day coming fall. Keep it sporty, keep it funky, keep it fresh. And stay away from the classic pleats + blouses combination. Pleats are back (if they ever were absent) and here to give your autumn wardrobe that extra wow factor it deserves.
