The fashion week reports at London, New York and Milan verged towards a bold mix of colours and patterns. Think of pairing orange with pink or leather with lace
At the Michelle Smith show during the New York fashion week, the fall collection had unlikely colours combined in a non-coherent pattern.
Femininity was the highlight at designer Elie Tahari’s show at NY fashion week. Tahari showed soft sheers in fall colours like deep burgundy and blacks. The ruffled detailing brought in the romantic feel. The silhouettes remained softly structured.
Velvet and faux leather again resurfaced at most fall winter shows. At the Max Mara show during Milan fashion week, the designs
were clean, fuss free and had a prominence of leather tops.
While jumpsuits and relaxed cuts have been a summer staple, they came with a winter twist at Gucci’s fall winter collection during the Milan fashion week. Belted easy suits in warm ombre hues formed the focus.
Designer Mathew Williamson brought in the needed cheer at his fall winter collection at the London fashion week. The kaftans in bright 70’s prints had bold slits and were cinched at the waist with belts.
It was back to the Victorian era at the Temperley show at London fashion week. The lace bodice along with silks and swish laces showed the party season glamour for the coming fall.
