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.
