For the girls
AW16 womenswear key trends:
Re-birth of the 80’s
“One of our favourite trends we saw plastered over the runway for AW16 was velvet upon velvet. We saw designers such as Valentino, Ellery, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Vetements, Preen and Roberto Cavalli showcasing many innovative designs made up of this gorgeous crushed fabric in their AW16 runway shows.
“When our beyond-chilly winter months arrive, this fabric will not only keep you warm and toasty, but will also ensure you’re on point when it comes to trends. Anything goes for this silky textile this season; wear it sparingly with a feature bag on top or clad yourself in it from head-to-toe with a statement jumpsuit or co-ord set.”
And the guys
“Believe it or not, velvet is also a huge trend in menswear this AW16. Seen walking the runway shows of Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann and Bottega Veneta, it’s very apparent that if you’re not clad in velvet throughout 2016’s wintery months, your wardrobe is definitely lacking. Whether you opt for a crushed velvet blazer, a plush patterned duster, or a classic pair of tailored trousers in a deep teal, purple or burgundy hue, ensure you buy them in the only fabric that matters this season: velvet.”
