After a seemingly endless summer, the new fashion season has finally arrived. Autumn 2018 promises to bring with it a batch of fresh ideas, from spins on iconic British heritage looks, to revival of Eighties style. Here are a few pieces from our current collection to inspire the fashionista in you!
Python, zebra, cheetah, croc' and more animal prints roamed free and wild across the catwalk shows this season. Victoria Beckham showed devotion to leopard print, Isabel Marant backed snake pattern trousers, while Tom Ford couldn’t decide and spliced together as many patterns as he could in a single look.
Why choose one great coat for the new season, when you could wear seven? This was the school of thought at Balenciaga, Simone Rocha, Missoni and more, where looks came with more layers than a millefeuille; blanket throws, puffa jackets, capes, waterproofs, et al. Back in the real world, you might want to simplify the styling (and reduce the bulk) by just adding a thick coat over a thinner one in a contrasting color. Snug.
The new neons
Miuccia Prada is bringing back neon. But not garish, Niceday highlighter neon. The new hues are fruitier, with watermelon, lemon and lime making for a delicious palette. Best worn as a stand-out pop of color amongst a navy, black, grey or beige outfit.
Brown is the new black
From tan to sludge, all you need to do is find the right hue for you, or go tonal in a top-to-toe effect. Natacha Ramsay-Levi at Chloe showed us how to do it right; mix a glossy chocolate leather coat with a peanut satin shirt, and tweed trousers.
The jumbo sequin is here and ready to meet all your party needs. Preen’s looks were encrusted with pearls and giant paillettes, Balmain’s models were positively iridescent. Julien Dossena at Paco Rabanne wins best in show; his silver chain-mail dresses were meshed with pixel-style sequins so big that they would look beautifully blurry as you twirl in them on the dance floor.
