As you may already know New York, London, Milan and Paris have all hosted a fashion week throughout February and March. Such shows usually unveil potential trends for future seasons.
In this blog we will take a look at 4 predictions Drapers have made about the latest trends from New York and London fashion week!
New York Fashion Week kick started a month of fashion shows from some of the most iconic brands from around the globe. From this, Drapers have identified potential trends for this coming autumn. Some well-known designers that attended the event were: Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Victoria Beckham.
Pinks seemed to be highly popular on the catwalk, especially lighter shades:
‘Fuchsia, blush, candy and rose colours have been popular for several seasons now – millennial pink anyone? – and the trend shows no sign of waning. While block colour brights made a dramatic impact, tonal combinations made the case for head-to-toe pink: Oscar de la Renta, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Prabal Gurung all showcased pink-palette fusions.’
London Fashion Week saw Christopher Bailey, the president and chief creative officer at luxury British brand Burberry present his ideas on the catwalk. Helen David the Chief merchant at Harrods attended the show as well as Queen Elizabeth II who paid a surprise visit!
‘Some designers created an aristocratic air of vintage quirk this season…. furnishing fabrics and reworked tapestry style textiles were crafted into outerwear at Mary Katrantzou.’
Could this mean that English heritage items like flat caps and baker boy hats will potentially be the new headwear kingpin and one of the many trends of autumn? Only time will tell.
Continuing from the Drapers article, the colour blue was a highlight, particularly lighter shades as stated below:
‘A sea of blues washed over the collections for autumn, ranging from soft pastels to cornflower and cerulean. A commercial colour that will give pep to winter wardrobes’
‘There was a burst of bright and bold colour across the entire week. Brands such as Delpozo and Jasper Conran focused on punchy colour-block dressing, while vibrant reds, pinks, greens and blues added pops of eye-catching interest to winter ranges.’
Bright colours in general seemed to be a main focus for some brands.
New York and London fashion week have shown some potential future trends for headwear. It will be interesting to see what Milan and Paris fashion week add to the fold.
