Burberry started off young and vibrant. With cool kids wearing polo shirts, rugby shirts, leather jackets, colourful checks and V-neck tops. The girls wore their hair in a tight bum, but had the coolest artwork of small little hairs on their foreheads. Halfway through the show Sara Eirud turned up in an enormous puffer coat. What a way to shake and wake things up! A few asymmetric patchwork dresses and corseted tops in the mix and then on came the trenchcoats. The second – and better – half of the show was filled with the chicest looks; perfect posh cocktail dresses, skirt suits, capes and trenchcoats with the iconic check as a lining (the classic coat everyone would love hanging in their closets). Not to mention the picture perfect men’s tailoring. So eventually Riccardo Tisci pleased everyone. Fashion forward statement makers at the beginning and signature success numbers (that will generate most of the label’s income) towards the end.

So here’s a few trend items you’d might want to hold on to a bit longer. Small, pointy sunglasses, boxy tweed blazers, shearling coats, animal printed anything. Today’s Coach collections included all these trends and a bunch of fresh ingredients Stuart Vevers added for fall. Most looks existed of sheer floral dresses worn over checked pants (or shorts) paired with a heavy coat and leather laced boots. Bare legs and faux fur coats (Coach is officially fur free since October). Transparent florals and the thickest leather’; the layered looks were perfectly balanced out with opposing item. The coach boys and girls looked cool and collection in the range of wearable fits.

Marc Jacobs Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2019

Marc Jacobs presented us with a complete A-line shaped collection this week. Forget cinched waists, the volumes of Jacobs dresses only got bigger and bigger from the shoulders down. It all started off with a anima printed cape followed by lots of voluminous and heavy capes and coats. Costum-y dresses with exaggerated proportions, tulle, feathers and ruffles in the mix. Looks topped of by the Stephen Jones–designed hats. It felt like a classic game of dress-up in your grandmother’s attic. There might have been a few award show worthy gowns in this collection. Yet apart from wearing these designs to such extravagant occasions like the Oscars or the Golden Globes the collection lacked wearability and modernity for clothes to be worn anywhere else. Then again that probably isn’t a concern for Jacobs at this point.

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: Meshed Up

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.

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: Biker Shorts

“I want to ride my bicycle!” Biker shorts are here to stay (for a little longer). Kim Kardashian must be so proud having been promoting this style for seasons now. And finally it’s really taking off! Wear them chic or street, with heels or dad sneakers, off shoulder tops or a cropped fur coat. It takes some guts to dare to rock this trend, but if you can pull it off you better enjoy it (to the fullest) while it lasts!

Catwalk Trend Spring/Summer 2019: Branded Jewelry

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)!

Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: Vivid Prints

Vivid & vibrant, that’s how we like our prints these days. Lead by the colorful examples of Balmain, Marni and Versace we can say our winter worries have never felt this far away. Futuristic (galaxy vibes at Balmain), nature inspired (red roses at McCartney, butterflies at McQueen, XL flowers at Valentino), household related (spoons and porcelain plates Dolce & Gabbana) or Art Deco (colorful heads at Marni). Any busy print will work and keep anyone you encounter busy (unraveling the details) of dizzy (just from looking at it). Head to toe prints work very well for the holidays and prints on prints are still a look. Have fun with it and be the prints charming in any room of any X-mas party you attend.

Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: Skirt + Sweater

We’ve talked about it before. Skirts and sweaters remain a most popular combination. Pleated skirts and cable knit sweaters, but also floor sweeping tule skirts and fleece hoodies (Burberry). In fact we’ve seen so many variations to the classic combination anything goes really. We prefer the sweaters, blouses and knits as chunky as possible. But if you like your tops a bit more tight (H&M), that’s a good look too. Mix and match your way into this trend and twirl your way through winter!

Catwalk Trend Fall Winter 2018: Small Bags

December 13, 2018 by

A returning trend, season after season: small bags! For fall/winter they came in the shape of tiny handbags (Altuzarra), necklace-inspired (Emporio Armani, Giambattista Valli), attached to belts (Emilio Pucci) and Dolce & Gabbana even had them on a drone flying around their show venue. Whether leather (Loewe), fake leather (Stella McCartney), Velvet (Dolce & Gabbana) or fur (Chanel); a teeny tiny handbag is your go to accessory for winter. Who needs jewelry when you can have this type of bag on you all night. And, bonus, you might even be able to fit something more than a 50 cent coin into it!
