The biggest four weeks of fashion came to an end with the big four New York, London, Milan and Paris offering different trends. September is, of course the biggest fashion month of them all because it brings all those ready-to-wear trends that we will rock in the Spring-Summer seasons and I love it. Autumn-Winter catwalks are also cool but nothing compares to the brightness and vibrancy of spring and summer which influence the trends for high end and high street.
It was great seeing Jennifer Lopez break the internet walking in the Versace show an absolutely brilliant moment and reminded us why we now have google images because of that iconic dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards.
It is always nice to see trends that you can follow, like a pop of colour or the in colour to wear in the spring with some statement earrings with eyeliner that curves into the eye, bronzy eyeshadow with a bold red lip. These are the trends that I spotted and feel do not go out of style. In addition, many of us already have them in our closets making it easy to style and transition everyday style whilst incorporating them in your day to day look.
I love polka dots they never go out of style and everyone has some kind of polka dots in their wardrobe.
The Short Story
We all love a good pair of shorts even if you get to wear them once a year to show off those legs.
I’m a denim girl no matter the weather it’s great that it never goes out of style but it’s not often that you see this trend on the September catwalks.
Back to Black
Not a colour I would associate with spring or summer so this was a major surprise for me. There was plenty of black, particularly loved Erdem with the dramatic blacks, the Saint Laurent pieces and the sparkle they had then Valentino brought such an elegance and sophistication which was a pleasure to watch.
Almost everyone seemed to have moved away from florals it’s now all about prints. Victoria Beckham showed some good prints although most of her collection was tailored and sleek I found her collection the most wearable, feels like she has evolved with the times.
The general feel of this year’s collections is no rules apply just how you interpret it. Style to me is what you make it and what you take from it. On a side note it has been good to see the Bottega Veneta name almost have a rebirth.
