Catwalk Fashion Trends - Autumn/Winter 2015
Paris is all about chic, Milan about elegance and New York can be characterised by its luxurious diversity. London, however, is all about unique and slightly extravagant ideas interpreted by the famous names in the industry as well as the new upcoming designers. People come to London to be inspired and to get this creative energy! Take a look at the trends that caught my attention at the latest fashion week shows…
Orange is definitely the new colour for Autumn/Winter 2015. Everybody talks about this new extravagant colour that will invade our wardrobes. Burnt orange emerges on catwalk shows for autumn winter and in particular at the shows of Christopher Raeburn and Christopher Kane.
Rich Chocolate Browns
The brown colour is an on-going trend, however, this time we see it on catwalks in darker shades. The shades showcased on the catwalks - cognac, chocolate and cinnamon are the hues that made a comeback from the 1970s colour palette. The rich brown tones enhance the modern sophisticated appearance of the garment whether it is leather, velvet or suede.
Less is more - the updated minimalistic look. Minimalist silhouettes are emerging with an accent on the minimal dress, simple shapes and soft materials. The minimalism movement definitely became an inspiration to many designers. The J. JS Lee show that I attended was all about minimal sophisticated looks supported by the comfortable and elegant feel of the materials.
Denim is one of the key elements showcased on the catwalks of Marques Almeida, Ashish, Faustine Steinmetz and Christopher Raeburn at London Fashion Week. The development of denim was also spotted at New York and Milan fashion weeks. Moschino showed beautiful patchwork denim pieces while Au Jour Le Jour demonstrated embellished and decorated denim. Chloé displayed a retro silhouette with matching denim top and bottom. I am curious to see how this denim revolution will continue next season…
Soft Neutrals & Greyed Off Pastels
Soft neutrals and Greyed Off Pastels were the warm and luxurious looking shades of the catwalks. With the combination of fine materials, these pale shades evoke a luxurious elegance. It is one of my favourite trends and is still going to be on top for next season.
London Fashion Week shows are a mixture of wild creativity, flashback styles, fancy street style and inspirational movements. I definitely filled up my creative energy and I am looking forward to being back next season!
