The first trend is “Waves” .After the fashion weeks ended, i had to decide what are all four or six big trends. From my point of view are quite six, but i turned out right only five so far….the last one is on the way of operation.:) … So, I will start with the trend that was spread almost at every collection. Is about those flounces that moves around the shape…that flounces that inspires you fresh air, beautiful pure colour, transparency even when is not transparent…those big flounces that seems to appear at Nina Ricci under an ruche name …because of the transparency…and pastel colours. At Stella McCartney under an huge …a bit rigid shape of flounce…drowned in those beautiful colourfull prints…Here the flounces seems to be the stars of the collection because you don’t find anything else that could go out of shape like these wild and a bit static flounces. Well at Giambatista Valli things are a little bit different. Here these are handled in a fine way but mixed in the same time with rigid flounces too…Lanvin definitely brought to life something extraordinary using the flounces and the draping cut, to create an well-defined atmosphere.
The second big trend is “La robe lingerie“. Fashion designers brought out there the feeling of linen drapery with black lace applique and the shape of a sexy bra above an transparent blouse. In this trend Christian Dior and Dolce & Gabbana were the designers that brought out there the sexy line of a lingerie mixed with real clothes….or not….:)
The third trend is “Bon ton corsets”. Some great designers planned to make people’s had goes round, performing collection by history of corsets. Wich wasn’t a bad idea beacause what’s out there now…are fabulous dresses and looks. Again Christian Dior or Jean Paul Gaultier or Sonia Rykiel , Dolce & Gabbana and others made that happened! I like the mix between the little corsets and really short draping skirts at Antonio Berardi, Giles and Collette Dinnigan.
The fourth trend is “Draping” . Draping in a lot of directions on linen fabrics and asymmetric shapes. Using only few cuts to drape a dress or a trench like in Burberry Prorsum collection , or using large shirr to create an soft dreamy volume like in Givenchy collection and Lanvin.
The fifth trend is “Mixed garden”. Just lovely mixing prints. Gorgeaus colourfull combination. There are no words how these great designers create such an eden’s garden. Maybe I should tell you what designer I liked the most: Diane Von Furstenberg for her clean style and mixing of colours and accessories. Givenchy‘s op-art game, Issey Myake‘s big grave geometrical shapes mixed with bright white… surrealism at Alexander McQueen...You should also check Stella McCartney, Rodarte, Kenzo, Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs.
