We’ve been keeping a close eye on what designers sent down their runways for their Autumn/Winter 15/16 offerings to monitor what items of clothing would be filtering their way into our lives and wardrobes.
Here are some of our favourite trends spotted:
If the designers had one thing to say this season, it was: ‘We’re not done with the 1970’s just yet’. Suede, fringing and patchwork ponchos galore.
A peak of fur:
Little snippets of fur popping onto beautiful outfits, as pockets, collars and especially CUFFS, was a huge trend this season. One of our most collectable items here in store at Boxpark are our vintage fur stoles from the 1980’s, which instantly add a touch of winter sophistication to any outfit.
A Victorian vibe of elegant high-necked ruffles and touches of opulent lace were infused into the designs of Alexander McQueen, Alberta Ferretti, Givenchy and Valentino.
The Classic Blouse:
(with a twist, preferably in white) From high, frilled collars at Altuzarra to waiter-inspired bow ties at Chanel, ruffled sleeves at Michael Kors to sheer thrills at Rodarte, the runways were full of reasons to go back and embrace a classic.
Tactile detailing takes over from print this season, with textured jacquards, boiled wool and faux fur adding a pop of difference to dramatic silhouettes . As always, classic suede, shearling and leathers are layered for luxe sensibility. At Tory Burch, prints reminiscent of Moroccan rugs stole the show, while in London the likes of Erdem and Mary Katrantzou gave a fresh spin on stately brocades.
We can’t help but have noticed the words ‘nerd trend’ on everyone’s lips. What does this mean, you ask? Well, when Gucci sent their models down the runway clad in loafers, neck ties, floaty blouses layered with waist coasts and topped off with reading glasses, they took preppy to a whole new level. Que: everyone jumping on board.
