Tech­niques In Fash­ion:

Fall 2018

There’s a pal­pa­bly nos­tal­gic tone set at the Fall/Win­ter 2018 col­lec­tions wherein de­sign­ers are con­tin­u­ing a long run­ning love af­fair with 1970s’ kitsch in­flu­ences and thrift shop trin­kets...

There’s a pal­pa­bly nos­tal­gic tone set at the Fall/Win­ter 2018 col­lec­tions wherein de­sign­ers are, con­tin­u­ing a long run­ning love af­fair with 1970s kitsch in­flu­ences and thrift shop trin­kets.

The preva­lent hype sur­round­ing streetwear and out­er­wear is also keenly taken into con­sid­er­a­tion as de­sign­ers and high fash­ion brands seek to ap­pease the dom­i­nant mil­len­nial and Gen Z clien­tele.

Fash­ion houses are tak­ing their cues from an eclec­tic mix of eras and movies that sur­pass cul­tures and tra­di­tions; and in­stead of re­sult­ing in a big chaos, the up­shot is in fact just the op­po­site.

Flo­ral em­broi­deries make a come­back but not in the dainty, ro­man­tic way you would ex­pect. This sea­son, they take on a more folk­loric tone and present them­selves as un­der­stated muted ver­sions of their coun­ter­parts. Flo­ral swirls also make their way into 3D appliqué place­ments that make use of hereti­cal laces and rib­bons.

On the sur­face front, wide explorations of washes are un­der­taken over den­ims rang­ing from worn out ef­fects to deeper indigo dips. A sense of reck­less aban­don, re­flec­tive of the cur­rent over­all so­ci­etal and cul­tural mood trans­lates it­self via an ar­ray of shred­ding and fray­ing tech­niques over shirts, jeans and denim jack­ets.

All this and more, as FFT takes on the re­cently con­cluded menswear and wom­enswear show­cases to re­veal the key tech­niques that would be in fo­cus for the ap­proach­ing frostier months.
