The days may be getting shorter, but we’re too busy discovering autumn fashion to miss summer. Get ready to dive headfirst into colours, rich prints and knits luxurious beyond belief. Forget frumpy – the new season’s trends are as irresistible as a pumpkin spice latte.
Aah, knits. The the pinnacle of cold-weather fashion. Who doesn’t love cosy cable jumpers, snug cardigans or a long, chunky scarf? Every AW season, fashion goes wild for knitwear – this year it was beautifully layered at Prabal Gurung, monogrammed at Burberry and oversized at Michael Kors.
Problem is, vegan-friendly knits can be somewhat tricky to find…unless you’re okay with looking like your grandma (hey, some grandmas have cool style). Solution? Just look below.
Welcome to fairyland. Enter into the world of enchanted princesses and sparkly creations, where each piece seems to be filled with magical energy. From Dolce & Gabbana fantastic riot of fairies, owls, foxes and swans to intricate botanical embroidery at Erdem, this trend finds its ultimate expression in a single item – the hooded cape, as seen at the extraordinary Valentino show.
Bold and vibrant hues were all over the fall runways: 3.1 Philip Lim, Christopher Kane, Agnona, Wenn and Prabal Gurung just to name a few. But this time, colour-blocking took a back seat in favouri of one bold piece, like the perfect statement coat, overlapping tones or one colour on a statement garment.Those of us that love black for winter might still find this trend appealing since we don’t have to get crazy with mixing different colours and can just go for one of our favorite shades.However, that doesn’t mean colour block is dead – as a matter of fact, a discreet nod to the trend came up on the fall runways (hello, 3.1 Phillip Lim). Our suggestion is to just not overdo it, and mixing metallics with opaque vibrant colours is a good way to accomplish that.
