6 Trends to Try Now

It’s a new fashion year and what better way to start it than to embark on a shopping spree?

Dark Florals by Erdem

The SS18 runways have been full of robust colours, elegant cuts, and feminine and masculine styles to suit every taste: from bold stripes that mean business to more flirtatious romantic feels, sports luxe and an elevated trench. 

We put 6 trends together that will instantly update your wardrobe and keep you occupied until AW18 comes around.

Bold Stripes

Kenzo, Derek Lam, Lenny Niemeyer, Adam Selman

From the runways to street style icons, the stripes on stripes trend has erupted in a major way and reawakening one of fashion’s most perennial prints.

This season we’re seeing a more juxtaposed, daring take, as opposed to the classic horizontal or vertically inclined prints, we’re seeing lines drawn in all directions in unexpected combinations including multicoloured statements and abstract layered cuts to create illusion.

Dark Florals

Erdem, Rodarte, Dolce Gabbana, Off White

Take a vibrant floral print, set on dark background in order to eliminate any signs of prissy high tea dressing, and sashay into spring. Style up the look with tough accessories – leather belts with serious hardware, statement cuffs and chokers and a black ankle boot for an elevated take on the most feminine of prints.

Colour Co-Ord

Loewe, MaxMara, Tom Ford, Juun J

Classic tailoring and suiting is back with a vengeance and shows no sign of going anywhere any time soon. Whether you’re coordinating separates, going oversized or playing with print, the key to sartorial victory this season is to commit to a head-to-toe look. Wearing a serious suit in a playful pantone has never been so chic.

Sports Couture

Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Public School, Fenty Puma

Sport luxe is still reigning and for 2018 we’re seeing athletic silhouettes in scuba, vinyl windbreakers and luxe track pants so brilliantly created using couture techniques.

Pair up with tailored blazers and day skirts, or simply a matching tracksuit with luxe accessories; the trend will appeal to you practical yet stylish dressers as well as those of you who prefer a more feminine approach.

Modern Romance

Zimmerman, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Rodarte

Modern romance makes us all think of ethereal fabrics, floaty skirts, shimmering embellishment and ruffles- and SS18 is serving just that. Every spring summer season we welcome a celebration of the female form with strategic ruching, ruffles on sleeves and collars, and delicate florals all on shades of white and dusty pink. Style down with sneakers or dress up with barely-there heels to take your mood from day to night.

The New Trench

Celine, Alberta Ferretti, Maison Margiela, Victoria Beckham

The trench coat is a wardrobe classic, and we all have that one that carries us from season to season. This year it's time to update your trench with feathers, oversized cuts, floaty fabrics and ruffles; invest in a statement luxe piece or simply customize your own by adding some bling to your collar for a dazzling take on a timeless staple.
