It’s official. Fur’s domination on the runways cast it as a major trend once again! The cover of today’s WWD proclaims: “A leading theme on the fall runways, fur was worked in graphic patterns, voluminous shapes and bold patchworks…”
Continuing on our Fall 2012-Winter 2013 line-up, London showed some funky looks during its week under the spotlights. The Brits like to credit themselves as tried and true eccentrics, and this week showed us how it’s done. So before we give you a thoroughly analyzed review, here are a few things that teased as the shows marched-on and the models strutted down the runway.
Color was definitely on the menu throughout London Fashion Week. Seriously, if you needed any more clues to inform you that this trend is one to follow, London served it every which way. From basic color blocking to unexpected color mixing to insanely original digital prints, COLOR ruled.
Ladylike dressing also made its mark with a myriad of looks that played with established proportions and silhouettes, but engaged them in so many colorful twists that the looks read super young, even girly at times. So, think granny cardigans, flouncy skirts, jacket ensembles – they were all present and newly minted for today’s fashionistas.
One of our favorite trends, which peaked here and there, was plaid. When we mention plaid, we are referring to anything between tartans and buffalo checks, the variances were all present in every imaginable scale.
But the trend that seems to be a mainstay – aside from color – is military. From the camouflage concept to distinct military hues to uniforms cuts, the military machine was on duty. Most of the looks were mainly daywear, but there were more than a few military inspired furs and fur trimmed pieces for us to choose from.
