As is the norm, the end of each fashion week brings with it ample substance in the form of influences to chew on and decipher which would make a promising case for the next big trend. While it is still too early to validate what the masses would take to, the forecaster in us scrutinized the presentations at Lakmé Fashion Week 2016 – Winter Festive edition for a few powerful recurring looks directly off the runway.
While a few trends make a comeback from past seasons in fresh ways (velvet, capes and monochromes), others convincingly feel more fierce and shiny (metallics, transparency and leather detailing).
The high energy Fiesta is a harbinger of excitement, encouraging free-spirited exploration into the unknown but welcoming locales that represents a bright orange shade that borderlines on red.
A strong and fiery, yellow-based red – the vivid Fiesta provides a stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette.
Mugler offered a sensual off-the-shoulder dress with slits while, Tibi went for a casual yet striking look utilizing the shade only on the sweatshirt and styling it with wide-legged striped pants.
WITH MILAN FASHION WEEK DONE AND DUSTED, THE ITALIAN HOUSES REVEALED THEIR STYLING RULES FOR SPRING SUMMER ’17
Karl Lagerfeld showcased a more practical version of his signature opulence for Fendi SS’17. The collection inspired by the home of Marie-Antoinette was rich in detail but balanced out with utilitarian shirts, subtle pinstripes and athletic trousers. The Italian fashion house almost abandoned its famous love for fur – except for some colourful striped gilets. Instead, the drama came from the cascading aprons that were layered over skirts and capri-pants.
Gucci, spring 2017
Not one model came down the runway with the same hairstyle at Gucci this season. Some wore hats, others head scarfs, and still others turbans. Our favorite of the bunch? The '50s-style victory roll and ringlets that was one part Teddy Boy, one part Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz.
Bottega Veneta, spring 2017
The contrast of a strong deep side part (an ode to Lauren Hutton, who walked the show) and a decadent jeweled barrette (which hairstylist Guido placed underneath the ear) created a look that was surprisingly, and heartbreakingly, romantic.
Today at Paris Fashion Week, Saint Laurent showed its first collection sinceHedi Slimane’s departure, and new designer Anthony Vaccarello seems to have brought back the Y in YSL in a major way. In fact, the first thing guests saw on arrival were giant, illuminated YSL letters hanging from a crane:
The set was made to look like an unfinished construction site with a concrete runway.
Paris fashion week opens with a new designer @anthonyvaccarello and a new venue at @ysl show tonight, but with the same taste of rock'n'roll. #ysl #paris #pfw #ss17 #voguerunway #condenast #fashion #show #anthonyvaccarello 🙌🏼💎💥
