Folk

Mixing, juxtaposing and stitching together what may first seem at odds, this season, the designers quenched their thirst for folk, mixing and matching unexpected pairings of prints, materials and tones.

Ostrich feathers

A flurry of feathers for a touch of couture, the common denominator at Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and Sonia Rykiel. White only, and soft, stylish and poised.

Office wear

Fashion can be a sociological study, and the new trend for gray business suits is intriguing. Styled-up tailoring for business girls straight from the office, or on their way out.

Galactic prints

From flying saucers to stars via the all-over astronaut prints at Chanel, fashion took flight for new frontiers with interplanetary inspirations. Think little 60s-style dresses, silver-studded denim and silk as light as zero gravity.

Double denim

Heading to the top of the trends list this season are total denim looks à la Brooke Schield circa 1984, ultra luxury and impeccably tailored for maximum everyday elegance.

Cosy knits

It’s knitting but not as your grandmother knows it. A modern twist on the cosy classic where wool is broken down and reinterpreted in new and poetic ways, dabbling with fringing, sometimes stretched out or infused with a touch of Hygge, the Danish craze for comfort.

Multicolored fur

With technicolored rainbows and bright bursts of color, fur is not holding back this season. An antidote to winter blues seen at Miu Miu, Prada and Fendi.
