Mea­sure of the sea­son

What’s hot and what’s not

The Guardian - Weekend - - Contents -

Go­ing up Hoard­ing See Gucci’s AW18 ad­verts shot by Glen Luch­ford, fea­tur­ing shelves over­flow­ing with china fig­urines, wigs and ce­ram­ics. Polo-neck hair Tuck­ing your hair into a polo neck – so prac­ti­cal, so sassy – is back, as seen in the new John Lewis ad­verts. ’Tis the sea­son… Mil­lets With hik­ing boots and fleeces the height of fash­ion, the out­door store is a on­estop shop this sea­son. Walk­ing hol­i­days are not com­pul­sory. Lady Gaga’s se­cond com­ing First the Ce­line bag. Then A Star Is Born. We smell an Os­car. Or a fash­ion award. So­cial x-ray dress­ing Marc Ja­cobs’ col­lec­tion is straight out of Tom Wolfe’s The Bon­fire Of The Van­i­ties. Late 80s Man­hat­tan so­cialites are go. Eury­th­mics Love Is A Stranger on the sound­track at Fer­rag­amo, Sex­crime at Cha­layan. Sweet dreams for the new sea­son.

The Mango pink cord trouser suit Ev­ery front row of London fash­ion week can’t be wrong.

Travel pil­lows Those brightly coloured squishy neck pil­lows are the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind one of Prada’s bags. Who said fash­ion had no sense of hu­mour? Go­ing down ‘Pump­kin spice’ As in latte. Now a sea­sonal put-down, mean­ing ba­sic. Ouch. Choos­ing a win­ter coat Ba­len­ci­aga says: just wear all your coats at once. We rec­om­mend two for au­tumn and three for win­ter. Mas­sive straw hats In­stead, search for a mas­sive straw bag, à la Jac­que­mus’s re­cent cat­walk show. You heard it here first. Pineap­ples For au­tumn/win­ter, Prada went for banana prints; for spring/ sum­mer, Gucci went for straw­ber­ries; re­fresh your fruit salad ac­cord­ingly. Flan­nels Airdry­ing your face is, ap­par­ently, the more hy­gienic, more cost-ef­fec­tive (less wash­ing) and à la mode way of dry­ing. Buf­fets Fash­ion-ap­proved chef Lei Saito prefers to make “ex­is­ten­tial food sculp­tures” (think cheese land­scapes). Prob­a­bly not avail­able for birthdays, wed­dings and bar­mitz­vahs. Chip­board As used all over the Goop pop-up shop in London (shelves, walls, you name it). Over it.
