Sugar sweet and fit for a queen. That’s one way to sum up these haute couture dresses. Turns out bright pink was the color of choice at many of the fashion houses. Givenchy, Valentino and Giambattista Valli all went for the brightest of pinks. While Chanel, Dior and Balmain opted for powdery pink. Anyway, the message was sweet, girly and loud. With statement skirts and shoulders, dramatic bows, tons of tule, lots of layers and the most gorgeous and detailed embroideries. Now we just need enough special occasions to wear these kinds of dresses to.

Guys, hitting the gym all winter long has paid off and now is time to show off. Unbuttoned shirts or no shirt at all. Pair your favorite swim shorts with a bright colored bucket hat. Match your shorts with your tropical shirt. Or opt for something eclectic (as seen at Walter von Beirendonck and Prada). No matter what dresscode you’re gonna go with, it’s (summer summer) summertime and we want you to show it.

And so it seems the fashion crowd has a new favorite bag this season. It’s big, it’s quilted and basically looks as soft as a pillow. It’s the Glam Slam by Maison Margiela. Now ofcourse the fact that all these streetstyle stars were carrying the new branded it bag on the same day out on the streets of Paris could mean it’s all just a partnership between brand and influencers. Yet, seeing our favorite style icons like Erika Boldrin and Tiffany Hsu with their Glam Slam bags sure makes ‘m look highly desirable. Smart move, good marketing and simply a stunning statement bag.

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: High Summer One Shoulder

And all of a sudden it was summer in our country. We remember having a white Easter, but this weekend it felt like just like a weekend in June. So we pulled our short skirts, cropped tops and sandals out of our closets. Straw hats, funky sunnies and small summer bags to match. Even though we were still in the process of getting our summer body, it was time to show some skin. Legs, abs or, as is the case with this trend, shoulders. Cause if we leave it up to the larger part of the designers it’s one shoulder tops and dresses next season. Bright colored, printed or ruffled. High time to turn your cold shoulder (just before temperatures drop again).

From a simple silk scarf to layers of tule; wearing a head wrap is the chicest thing this summer. Just ask Dolce, Etro, Tom Ford, Gucci, MaxMara, Versace Rick Owens and the rest of the long list of designer labels who joined in on this trend (Marc Jacobs and Rodarte turning things up a notch). It creates a super sophisticated look, although it’s actually the most effortless summer look to turn to. Gone are your worries of bad hair days, plus you’ve got your hair protected from damaging UV light. Simply add a big pair of sunnies and some statement earrings and you’re ready to hop from the beach to the bar. No need to wrap things up. You’ll be the last one standing at any summer party.

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: It’s a zoo out there

We’ve just come to the conclusion that half of our wardrobe is filled with leopard printed items ever since that trend completely took over. We might have added a touch of tiger and even a Dalmatian printed piece along the way, but there’s no denying the love for leopard. It has become our new neutral so to say. And thus, we’re moving further in the world of prints, looking for the next big thing. As it turns out that trend isn’t even that different from the animal print trend. In fact, it’s an animal print too. A different one though; these prints don’t feature the animal’s print, but the complete animal as a print. Just look at the farm animal at Dolce & Gabbana, the birds at Fendi, the butterflies at Mary Katrantzou, the fish at Michael Kors and the peacocks at Valentino. All very colorful, vivid and exotic. Animal prints revisited.

Keep fishing! We spotted net bags at Armani, net shoes at Altuzarra and mesh clothing at the likes of Louis Vuitton, Sonia Rykiel, Etro, Ferragamo and JW Anderson. Beach ready or office proof this netting trend blends in with any dresscode perfectly. Worn over tops and dresses it creates that extra special layered effect. And what better way to make your outfit literally breathe. So besides looking on trend it helps to take things lightly next season.

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: Utility Mode On

Overalls, cargo pants, tool belts and utility vests; it’s all about functional fashion these days. Wear your clothes oversized, in earthy tones and covered with a variation of pockets (and even pockets on pockets!). No extra bag(s) needed anymore. Thanks to Virgil Abloh and his concept of ‘accessomorphosis’: the transformation of bags and wallets into clothing. Just make sure you remember what you put in which pocket. Or you’ll have a hard time finding your car keys or American Express card and you’ll end up making things even more complicated instead.

If you’ve invested in designer stuff you want to show it off. And that’s just what the logomania trend is all about. Not just in fashion but in jewelry and accessories too branded items are making up for the biggest part of the profit for most fashion houses. And so inevitably that’s where designers put the focus. Chanel, which presented an all over branded spring collection had CHANEL earrings, multi chain necklaces, body chains and bracelets. We spotted some highly desirable, chunky Balenciaga earrings. And at Dior the metal chokers proclaimed the name of the brand. Li la logomaniaaa (in full force)!
