Our S/S18 Trend Edit
October 18, 2017|Trends
he trends to emerge from the latest fashion shows where decidedly feminine in feel, offering an alluring glimpse into the styles we can expect to see come next spring. In anticipation of this, we have curated below an edit of our favourite trends from September’s catwalks shows and how these sartorial styles can be translated into interiors for a subtle nod to next season’s trends.
The catwalk was awash with shades of feminine pink
Millennial pink has been having a moment in the world of fashion and interiors and this looks set to continue into 2018. From the romantic rose ruffles at Preen to Marques Almeida’s silk slips in shades of candyfloss pink, the catwalks where awash with this feminine shade. Serbian fashion designer Roksanda Illincic presented a grown-up offering in hues of fuchsia and pastel pink, whilst fashion powerhouse, Peter Pilotto, opted for an altogether more playful and youthful approach with highlighter pink offset with neon accents. Emilia Wickstead took the trend one step further by combining millennial pink and red together; two colours that together is typically seen as a fashion faux pas, but on her signature evening dresses feels modern and fresh.
Texture was a clear trend in this season’s shows, with a particular focus on fringing. From Mary Katrantzou’s tassel-hemmed skirts to the swirls of fabric that adorned Roksanda’s creations, fringing was a favourite with fashion designers. Drawing on the opulence and old world glamour of the Art Deco period, fringing also made its mark on accessories, with Christopher Kane presenting decorative tassel earrings and booties in his show. However, the clear standout was Christian Siriano’s show stopping tasselled dress in an eye-catching shade of ruby red, complete with a fish scale pattern and flared sleeves for maximum impact. Fringing can easily be incorporated into the home by way of decorative cushions and lampshades. Look to House of Hackney for their modern take on vintage home ware, reworking traditional styles in a contemporary way.
Sequins reigned supreme in both New York and London’s catwalks this season, bringing a touch of glamour to everything from shoes to blazers. Designers Ashish, Halpern and Julien Macdonald, who are all well known for their penchant for sparkle, championed the trend with silver sequin suits and bejewelled trousers illuminating the catwalk. However, it was the usually understated Emilia Wickstead who turned heads with her top-to-toe take on the trend. Rose-gold sequins adorned floor-length dresses, retro-inspired heels and even bags for a look that was nothing short of show stopping. Although sequins are typically associated with the festive season, if used sparingly they can work all year round, introducing a touch of opulence to the home. We love Jonathan Adler’s ‘Muse Eyes’ cushion, which features handcrafted and intricate gold embellishment, offering just the right amount of opulence to see you through the festive season and beyond.
