LONDON FASHION WEEK SS19 TREND REPORT
Fashion month is well underway and after analysing some of the remarkable collections shown at a rainy New York Fashion Week, watching the looks to come out at London as well as street style spotting, we have complied a breakdown of some of the SS19 trends that could make their way into your wardrobe next season.
Vivid pinks, highlighter yellows and brilliant greens illuminated NYFW for SS19. Next season, expect a bolder colour palette as opposed to the usual pastel hues that dominate the warmer seasons. Brandon Maxwell’s selection of bright pink looks paired with his trend-forward Perspex bags showed at New York. Whilst back in London, Henry Holland featured tangerine orange tones on oversized blazers styled with wet-look hair as his collection, “Pull in Emergency”, brought forward his girl-on-the-go muse. Invest in bright, statement pieces and style with neutral tones with minimal accessorising to easily weave in this bold Spring/Summer trend.
Operating alongside the blush pink hues of SS19, ruching and ruffles took to fashion week elevating feminine silhouettes. Marc Jacob’s fashionably late show exhibited oversized rosette shapes and ruffled tulle accents constructed around the jawline and on dazzling mid-length dresses. As inspired by Molly Goddard’s ready-to-wear collection, experiment with floral prints with ruffle detailing to add more dimension to your outfit or merge with more androgynous silhouettes to create a chic, modern style.
Padded shoulders that reinforce masculine silhouettes on oversized blazers and coats have been sighted throughout fashion week shows so far. Ruffle embellishments create a refreshing contrast to the structured and more masculine shapes that took to the runway. An assortment of sharp-cut lapels seen on longline blazers were spotted on many Fashion Scout attendees, one was photographed wearing a yellow and black check, shoulder padded blazer, belted around the waist. Try to style a structured blazer with other lengths to add more dimension and stray away from a less uniformed look.
Bohemian style fringe has elevated many of the looks spotted across fashion weeks so far. At NYFW we saw Monse’s long tassels falling from miniskirts in bold red and white colourways and Raf Simon’s collection for Calvin Klein which featured long tasselling from black knitted jumpers. It has been suggested that these were representing the current state of America and the disarray that encompasses the nation at this time. With endless opportunities of detailed garments adored in fringing, try something different and switch fringed jackets for knitwear or tasselled accessories.
