Here is another little fashion update for Worthing Mums followers.
Autumn has to be the most picturesque season of all, hasn’t it? The chill is setting in and the leaves are looking golden, becoming crisp. A change of month comes with a change of wardrobe, YAY! Let’s have a look at the key trends….
“ If you look at the world of magazines and fashion journalism (an industry dominated by women) and what the powers that be are wearing in the front row, you’ll see mostly flats. Fifty years from now, sooner maybe, I bet we will look at stilettos as being as much of a cultural anachronism as Japanese foot binding” Christa D’Souza, The Telegraph
Free from …
Before we review autumn, let’s just observe what we didn’t see during the recent London Fashion Week.
High Heel Shoes
Are they on there way out? Victoria Beckham has just spun heads with a heel-free catwalk show. Is this the future?
Trends are suggesting, they could be on their way out. Is the world a better place without high heel shoes? Oppressive or empowering?? What’s your view?
Last year, sales of high heels declined by 12% while sales of women’s trainers soared by 37%.
Burberry, Gucci & Versace, amongst others, stated their London Fashion Week shows were fur-free … call me a cynic … but its 2018 and that’s like saying we don’t endorse the slave trade or child labour … it shouldn’t have taken this long! Fur farming has been banned in the UK since 2000.
It is very interesting that a massive trend this autumn is actually animal print, but of course, the man-made faux design, hallelujah!
Animal print prowled over an astonishing amount of catwalks across London, New York, Milan and Paris. Leopard-print coats and leopard-print shoes a-plenty and there’s a menagerie of snake patterns, zebra, cheetah, faux-croc, tiger, giraffe—some of which come in classic, neutral tones, but there are more wild and wonderful multicoloured versions out there too.
Chocolate, Caramel, Bronze …
Brick, cocoa, mocha—call it what you like. Brown is everywhere, Rochas, Dion, Etro, Chloe.
Capes, wraps, ponchos, coats … so many stunning cosy pieces from Longchamp, McQueen, Maje, Bottega and many more.
Heritage tweeds, plaids and checks are making a huge comeback. Michael Kors teamed up red and yellow tartans with leopard print trim.
Shoulder pads and even puffball skirts have appeared on the catwalk. Vinyl, Latex, plastic and patent is highly visible. Are you ready to ‘get into the groove’ and become a ‘material girl’, what’s next … a perm?
Just stunning from Sonia Rykiel, Alexander McQueen, Hermes, Loewe and Givenchy, beautiful.
Blame Instagram, enough said!
That’s all for now, until next time.
