LONDON FASHION WEEK TREND REPORT SS19

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.

NEON BRIGHTS

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.

RUFFLES

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.

MASCULINE TAILORING

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.

FRINGING

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.

SHOW INSIGHT: ACNE STUDIOS FALL 18 READY-TO-WEAR

As Jonny Johansson dips his toes into the world of haute couture, this new collection for Fall is a breath of fresh air and an example of the incredible potential of the Scandinavian fashion house. Acne Studio’s new collection will now show during Couture week in Paris, in an attempt to “focus, and create even stronger designs and collections” (Mattias Magnusson).

It resembles a “quieter, less incessant rhythm of life” and this is shown through the use of oversized trench coats, overlapping collars and the romantic mix of woollen and silk textiles.

Embroidery,  attention to detail yet comfort are made apparent within the collection, as shown through the use of belting the ankle-length coats. The oversized shoelace ‘tie’ gives the look a kitsch, retro feel. The use of lilac shades was also noted as Johansson carefully moves his pieces to transition from Summer to Fall. The sheer, floral, lilac dresses are contrasted by other more autumnal patterns such as check and burnt orange tones that feature throughout.

This collection draws away from Acne’s usual neutral and blush toned ready-to-wear pieces and he’s revived the notorious jackets and coats with a sense of early 90’s nostalgia. I love the direction the brand has taken to really establish themselves as an well-founded house.

SHOW INSIGHT | DOLCE AND GABBANA MENS AW18/19

Dolce and Gabbana’s AW18/19 Men’s Fashion Show, ‘King’s Angels’ was a remarkable collection that incorporated deep velvets, jacquard fabrics and a running theme of royalty. The beautiful, tailored pieces that signified all thing regal were intertwined with a Gothic feel, unified under traditional dark Autumnal trends. Pieces such as suits, oversized sweatshirts and tailcoats coats were reoccurring.

The gold threading that was woven into many of the garments integrates the elegant crown accents seen within the pieces as well as a key accessory. A\W fashion colour palettes come down to deep burgundy, navy and black tones. However, it was refreshing to see splashes of magenta, mint green and metallics.

Aviator sunglasses, bow ties and embellished loafers were also a popular accessory choice. These allowed all the looks to flow succinctly and tie together in such a grand manner.

The Slouchy Knit

For years I’ve loved wearing and styling all my knitwear, sweatshirts and coats oversized. I’m a complete advocate for a slouchy, relaxed outfit and I’ll take an chunky knit over any apparel in the Autumn/Winter months. This gorgeous shade of yellow is a go-to colour for me at any time in the year but I’ve definitely seen more yellow than mustard around this season – I’m very happy this.

I picked up this knit from Zara in a size too big but I’m rolling with it and love how cosy it is. I styled it really simply with some Topshop Jamie jeans, pair of Reeboks and my little Zara backpack which I’m obsessed with at the moment too. I’d love to wear this with a little skirt and some sock boots, maybe an oversized coat too.

Why Slouchy Knitwear Is My Favourite:

  • Cosy – you can style it to go out all day and still look good, then you can come home and still be super comfy – you don’t even need to change into your comfies.
  • Easy to Style – Whether is is a bit baggy or massively oversized, you can pair a slouchy knit with so many pieces; A/W styling is an ease.
  •  Eating out?  – Bloated? No worries an oversized knit hides that roast dinner and extra portion of crumble and custard, no questions asked.

 

ACNE STUDIOS | WISHLIST

 

Acne Studios is a brand I’m currently studying for one of my modules at Uni and in the process I’ve become even more obsessed over the pieces they have. I’ve wanted a Velocite jacket for years but so many more items are catching my eye this season. I love the eyewear they’ve been bring out. Like the quirky mix-match ones above. Acne’s accessories game is always so strong and this year the selection is gorgeous. The Acne boots are another staple that I so wish I could own, these ones are the Allis boots.
One of my absolute favourites is the Yana pink sweatshirt, it retails for £230 but it’s so adorable whilst so edgy, I love the crew neck line and text. The Nalle knit is another pick of mine, so simple but I’m sure the quality is amazing and such a staple piece that I would wear year in and year out.
Just a quick note of these pieces that will definitely be on my wishlist for Christmas.

4. ALL THE FAUX FUR AND FLUFF

An excellent A/W  trend that is actually really practical and warm, teddy coats and faux fur jackets were big over the fashion weeks. Not only do they look stylish but they add such a great statement look to an ordinary outfit.

5. THE SOCK BOOT

A glamorous spin on your traditional black boot. This design is so elegant and flattering, a style that will be popular thoughout the upcoming months. They are so versitile and look good with so many outfits. Here’s some serious sock boot inspo if you haven’t got yourself a pair already.

That Sunday Sunshine

The beginning of the weekend just gone, was full on to say the least. I went to a hip-hop and electronic music festival in Bath on the Friday and we travelled back on the Saturday. Meaning, Sunday was the ultimate chilled day and the weather was beautiful for it too.

I’m loving all things yellow at the moment, especially this almost-retro shade. It all started with this cute yellow halter top from Urban Outfitters. It’s great to wear in this weather and looks great with blue or black denim. I love the back detailing as it’s different yet so perfect for this warm weather we’ve been acquainted with. It’s a lovely 90’s inspired piece as the cut is not cropped so could be styled with low-rise denim jeans and flatforms for serious Y2K vibes.

Unfortunately, I cannot find this top online however, there is an abundance of adorable yellow tops on UO so links to my favourites will be alongside the details of this outfit.
