FIVE BIG TRENDS THIS SEA­SON

#Legend - - Reveal / The Face -

Over tea and bis­cuits, LISA AIKEN, fash­ion direc­tor of NET-A-PORTER helped us nav­i­gate the trends and make sense of our shop­ping lists for this fall. Fash­ion is all about per­sonal style, more than ever. Let’s have some fun.

TAI­LOR­ING

This is the pant suit or skirt suit in a new way. Think dou­ble-breasted jacket with jeans. The 90s are back but in­fin­itely bet­ter. The jacket shapes are boxy, straight, sharp, not broad. The fab­ri­ca­tion is across the board – in colours or in tra­di­tional menswear tai­lor­ing pat­terns in var­i­ous pro­por­tions and sizes.

COLOUR

We will be bold and colour­ful this au­tumn/win­ter – ei­ther in bright monochro­matic or un­ex­pected bold colour com­bi­na­tions. There are up­dated neu­trals that feel com­pletely mod­ern. Red is a pop­u­lar hue pre­sented by the de­sign­ers, in to­tal monochro­matic looks in­clud­ing the shoes.

SHINE

Glow on. Look for sparkly 70s disco ref­er­ences, glossy shoes and coats, and se­quined ev­ery­thing.

MOD­ERN MOD­ESTY

High neck­lines and long hem­lines. We must credit Valentino, Acne, Loewe, Ba­len­ci­aga, for propos­ing that long dresses and sleeves can look cool, fem­i­nine, and day­time ap­pro­pri­ate. Achieve the look by wear­ing the long dresses with boots.

VIN­TAGE LUXE

De­sign­ers are tak­ing the need out of scour­ing vin­tage stores for that “per­fect” item score that smacks of spe­cial whimsy and nos­tal­gia. Lead­ing the charge is Alessan­dro Michele at Gucci along with some gems from Prada, Marc Ja­cobs, and Koche.
