Summer just started, but it’s already time to plan your autumn/winter wardrobe, as we know – the summer tends to fly away very quickly. Once a week, we’ll post different A/W’17 trends to make you fully prepared when the autumn is here.
The A/W’17 fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris gave us a whole set of new trends. The shows were a balance of political statements and colorful fashion and ruffles galore – Raf Simons used his first show for Calvin Klein to protest against Trump by opening and closing to David Bowie’s This is Not America.
Chanel, Mugler and Christopher Kane took us to the future and introduced metallics and galactic prints, while Mulberry made us walk down the memory lane inspired by the 20s tailored tweed and frocks. Gucci and Saint Laurent also took us back to the past and the 70s disco tunes and boots.
This week, the trend is Suiting, which is a favorite of mine and will probably go global by the beginning of autumn. We already got a glimpse of tailoring in SS’17, so we’ll definitely see more of it in September. Michael Kors, Celine, Alexader McQueen and so many others were all about the 9-to-5 life but presented a new and sleep interpretation of office wear – double breasted cuts, pronounced shoulders, masculine tailoring in heritage fabrics.
