With Autumn well and truly underway, we’re finally discovering what designers have in store for us next season, and as expected, you really can’t miss it. There’s a huge appetite for prints and embellishment, in fact it’s perhaps at an all-time high, and on the catwalk eyes are being severely tested.
Gucci’s 70s show has been the epitome of this, showcasing the swinging 70s, with plenty of disco elements during Milan Fashion Week. But what else is in store for us upon the turn of the year? We take a look at the hottest trends for Spring 2016…
Whilst it may not be time to totally ditch the skinny jeans, cropped trousers will be re-emerging next year, particularly with denim and in ultrawide form. It’s the return of the 70s and whilst we may not be embracing flares, the days of disco are well and truly back.
Depending on which country you’re from of course, colours will show patriotism with lots of red, white, and blue on the high-streets. We’re expecting this to really blow up over the season. Giorgio Armani has a very nautical inspired collection, whilst Marc Jacobs has played around with sequins, beautifully complimenting his accessories range, meaning a selection of Armani Exchange watches will sit perfectly with an outfit.
Chanel themed their Spring Collection around the airport, again wowing us with funky 70s patterns.
There’s a lot to be said for just rolling out of bed and out into the world, and it appears designers like Alexander Wang, Givenchy, and Calvin Klein have taken inspiration from this with satin designs.
Using soft materials, we’ll likely see dresses, trousers, shirts, and even bikini tops made from silks and satin, with the latter a key part of The Row’s collection.
Neutral Colours To Combat The Print
While bold prints and 70s shades may be all the rage on the runway, we’re also seeing brands combat that with buttery shades and gorgeous silhouettes. Hermes, Bally’s and Derek Lam are showcasing some incredibly elegant designs, providing an essence of calm alongside the loud disco-like style dominating the rest of the season.
We absolutely love what Derek Lam has done this season, taking inspiration from Nina Simone to create a powerful, yet incredibly sophisticated and stylish collection.
