Autumn/Winter’15 Trend alert: The autumn colour – RED!!!

Blood Lines!!

SANGUINEOUS shades hold a lethal fascination this season as head-to-toe scarlet drench coats, knits and gowns dazzle in brilliance. More dazzling than deadly, these red are healthy, warm and vibrant, proving fashion’s heart beats strong and sure. Out of all the primary colours, red is considered as one of the most powerful. Often associated with passion and danger, it’s a hue that is sure to get you noticed. There are, of course, different ways of wearing the shade whether you choose to add bursts of the colour to your outfit or go all-out in top-to-toe rouge. If you’re searching for casual classics or sharp tailoring, red is a bold and vibrant choice.

Another vivacious red hue is the cherry red. If you feel confident enough to take it up a notch, opt for a brighter tone such as cherry red. Playful and vibrant, this is a sweet shade that will inject personality into your summer attire.

Often associated with strength and power, red is a colour that turns heads. Be bold and enter the new season with confidence by replacing your LBD or boring grey winter coat with a scarlet version!

The undisputed protagonist of the Fall Winter 2014-15 collection in terms of colours is the mighty red. Red like fire, red like passion and red like blood. The colour sums up so many states of mind, so much of what is happening in the world today that it is only fitting that it be applied to fur, lace, silk or accessories. It is to be worn with pride and conscience with multiple meanings of this primary and primordial colour.

Red is unquestionably a noteworthy shade when we talk about the fashion trends. Aurora Red stands out among the shades of red, representing some glamorous and sparkling feel to the looks. The exemplars introducing the red shade are indeed numerous but what unites them is the ultra-feminine and sassy garments they are meant to create. Here, we note the absolutely breath-taking collection of Tadashi Shoji, where red was matched with the delicate and subtle lace patterns and the body-flattering shapes.

Miu Miu is also in our fabulous red list with its youthful and cool pieces. The stunning options suggested by Paul & Joe entered our list too. When we talk about red glam and femininity we simply cannot omit the absolutely to-die-for suggestions by Valentino, which came with the most subtle and indulgent forms as possible. Besides that, shimmery red was the pick of Saint Laurent where red was glamorized for the absolute perfect party looks. Among other shows, we may also note the collections by Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Givenchy, Kenzo, Elie Saab, Roland Mouret, Christian Dior and many more.

Dolce & Gabbana turned storytellers with their dark, unctuous take on traditional fairy tales for AW14. Think of the huge enchanting Little Red Riding Hood thick ruby coats.

This upcoming season’s fall-winter 2014-2015 trend is all about bold new silhouettes, modern and delicate materials, as well as bright colours and styles. There is no doubt that the retro inspired styles featuring classic shapes and bright colours are making a huge comeback. We expect typical wearable fashion essentials with touches of creativity, commercial updates, unexpected classics, luxurious and confident ready to wear garments, as well as experimentations and fashion forward looks. We also see experimental, classic, feminine, mannish and very modern outfits.

All of those elements lead us to the swinging 60’s!! Now, as we have already mentioned the comeback of the old and forgotten pieces, it’s the right time to think of the swinging 1960′s and 1950′s retro looks. How about completing your outfit with a glossy trench coat? We also suggest cool and elegant shift dresses, youthful pin up updates, flared skirts, pale prints, and much more.

A definitive era for fashion, film and MUSIC, the 60s makes a comeback this winter, reinstating all our favourite swinging styles. It is time to slip into shift dresses and buttoned-up coats as designers revisit the silhouettes made iconic by Brigitte Bardot and Twiggy. Team a knitted roll-neck with a thigh-skimming leather skirt, cinching your waist and elongating your legs…

Twiggy, Penelope Tree and Jane Birkin were on the minds of designers at Gucci, Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton this season. Mini-skirts, trapeze dresses, patent Mary-Janes, graphic bobs and pastel colours paid tribute to the baby doll style, presenting a fresh, carefree take on the Swinging Sixties London.

Lingerie Trend: Racerback Lace Lingerie

Lace is back!! (No pun intended!) We saw this trend hit the runways back in 2009. However it doesn’t seem to look like it’s going anywhere. If anything designers are taking a different spin on the lingerie as ‘outwear’ trend, adding more lace into lingerie. Making a super feminine finishing touch, making lingerie as it should be, sexy!!!

Let’s start with a go-to innerwear as outwear piece: the Racerback. If you’re going to show off your chest and neckline, why not accentuate your back too? The racerback style makes shoulders look sultry. Some women even find that racer back bras give them more support…although I’ll leave that for you to decide. Wear this under a sheer top or a low-cut cropped tee. The racer back is said to give women more shoulder movement and freedom, with less stress on the shoulders.

You also don’t have to ever worry about ‘slip-straps’, those moments of tucking your bra straps are gone with the racer back style.  Showing off your back is the new things. With different lace back styles and designs, its adding the feminist touch, with lace also having the touch of class.

Trend alert: Cut-out & ripped denim pants

LET’S GET RIPPED!!

The irony of the “hole” ripped denim is that it takes care to engineer something so careless. But it’s this carelessness factor that keeps it on the fashion radar. From spring 2014, torn jeans continue to be worn in the most casual or most sophisticated of ways.

The main challenge consists in trying to maintain a state of comfort, while still aiming for the distressed jeans to look effortlessly pulled together,  the chicer the better.  Styles range from classy, edgy and super-tough approaches to men inspired trends.

Celebrites that are rocking the new ripped denim look range from Kim Kardashian, J.Lo, Kate Moss and the list goes on.

No longer just for school kids or teenagers, the grade school staples has become a chic and necessary accessories for adults. They’re half functional, half accessory that blends in perfectly, that’s why we’re big fans of the latest 90′s revival – the backpack <3

Let’s forget about the old-school backpack with cushioned straps and multiple organizer pockets, trust me, these are not the same nylon bags that you once knew. It’s graduated into more fashionable and convertible styles with super on-trend details like studs, fringe, and contemporary prints that are sleek enough for a casual outing, work or a night out.
