Fall Winter Trend 2018: Shine Bright

So we have a shopping confession to make. As December is creeping up on us we´re experiencing a slight shift in our shopping habbits. As the days get darker our shopping baskets become brighter, shinier.. lit! We´re buying glitter leggings and socks, metallic skirts, sparkling tops and sequined dresses inspired by catwalk images of Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Isabel Marant and Off-White. To make sure we´ll shine bright at any upcoming (pre) X-mas party but also to give a little extra spark to any random day of the week. Life´s too short to wear boring socks anyway.

Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: Corduroy Craze

We wrote about it last year, when all of a sudden corduroy was a big theme in many catwalk shows. Now, one year later there’s no denying this trend. All high street stores are packed with corduroy pieces. From dusty pink dresses to camel colored jackets and army shaded oversized shirt dresses. Perhaps you’re inspired by old images of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg wearing matching corduroy or Diane Keaton and Woody Allen getting their cord game on. You might have seen Dustin Hoffman looking smashing in his cord blazer (another classic). Maybe it’s last years runway images that got you cord love going. Or you were just blown away by Kendall rocking those high waisted corduroy pants and Alexa Chung sporting that seventies style cord skirt. Either way it’s about time you joined in on the fun of this fabric. The fashion students at AMFI show you how it´s done. Be a good sport wear something cord!

While some beauty looks were true pieces (we discussed some of them earlier on) of art this fall season, others were more subtle. Especially when it comes to the lips make-up artists stayed very close to the models actual color. Not a lot of brown shaded, deep burgundy red lips, but different shades of light pink and a whole lot of nude lips. We selected our favorites from our backstage archives at Ackermann, Akris, Altuzarra, Balmain, Lavin, Marni and Sportmax. Eyes might have been a little wild(er) in term of color and shiny, sparkling metalic touches, but the lips remained o-so-natural.

Menswear Trend FW2018: All Wrapped Up

Even big guys get cold and so many menswear labels are going for the layered look. No matter how tall, strong or tough you are, you need to wrap up to bear winter temperatures. And it turns out a heavy coat is just not enough. Men need extra layers of body warmers (Bidjan, Sunnei), thick scarves and puffer boots – don’t get cold feet now!- (Thom Browne), beanies (RaeBurn) and head wraps (Margiela). Rolling straight from sofa to streetwalk, while still covered up in your fav blanket (as seen at Marni) is even allowed when temperatures drop. Winter is here, make sure you’re well prepped!

Rigid, stiff, heavy, but very classy. The leather dress plays a leading part in the new season. And it comes in it’s heaviest, thickest form if it’s up to Tods, Givenchy, Loewe and Stella McCartney. Cognac, emerald, deep blue, coral red or midnight black; your options are endless. Wear your little black dress utility inspired with lots of pockets, pins, zippers and a leather belt. Not the most easy going, soft & cosy material, but statement making nonetheless and perfect for those days when it’s leather weather!

Looking at the spring/summer collection for next year we get the idea fashion is sharpening up again. After years (& years) of joggers, trainers, sneakers and other kinds of comfort dressing we’re slowly but steadily moving into pleated pants, crispy blouses and tailored jackets again.

And let’s make a homewear is outerwear style statement while we still can. And given the fact that there were still lotttts of tracksuits on the runway, it will take a while for the mass has adapted to a different more dapper way of dressing. So just know that new styles are coming up, but enjoy this effortless dressing game while it’s still here. Can you still keep track(suit)?

No need to hold back with this beauty trend. Just have the most fun getting ready, shine bright and be the star of the night. Have we sparked your interest?

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!
