Key Materials Trends from the Spring/Summer 2015 Catwalks

Monday, 27 October 2014

Fresh and progressive, discover the latest Spring/Summer 2015 runway trends pinpointed by the Trendstop Catwalk team. This week we're focusing on materials, showcasing two essential texture directions from the 40 analysed by our materials trend experts in the Trendstop Materials on the Catwalks S/S15 Report. Sourced straight from the front row at fashion capitals around the world, see how both of these trends can be adapted into collections for the upcoming season.

Cut-Out Cottons

One of the most directional trends emerging in Paris collections, designers update fabrics from the cotton family with the use of laser-cutting and lace techniques, forming contemporary patterns with a nod to anglaise fabrications. Styles range from classic revamps to ultra-modern textures formed out of interlinked typography.

A Suede Touch

Modern takes on 70's inspirations are a key influence on the catwalks this season, as seen in Milan with directional applications of suede textures. Soft and smooth, the material lends a refined finish to designs like split skirts and casual two-pieces, along with as chic handbags. Fashion colours underline the contemporary feel.

Tendenze colore dalle sfilate per la primavera estate 2015

giovedì 23 ottobre 2014

Immergiti in una gamma di nuovi colori essenziali e freschi visti sulle passerelle per la primavera estate 2015. Tra questi spiccano il Banana Essence e Blueberry Milk per dare vita a nuovi stili di stagione con un tocco contemporaneo. Entrambi questi colori sono stati presi dal Trendstop Colour on the Catwalks S/S15 Report, che contiene 40 sfumature individuate dagli esperti di tendenza colore di Trendstop. Scoprite come queste tonalità possono essere tradotti in capi e accessori per la vendita al dettaglio per la prossima stagione.

Banana Essence

A Londra, Banana Essence emerge come una nuova tonalità essenziale, offrendo una nota di ottimismo luminoso di stile casual. Tessuti di pizzo openwork esprimono una femminilità elegante, mentre audaci contrasti neri aggiungono enfasi sia alle alle calzature brogues, sia impreziosendo gli abiti a T.

Blueberry Milk

Un tono rassicurante di Blueberry Milk da una nuova vita ad abbigliamento e accessori con un tocco estivo, come si è visto nelle collezioni di Parigi. Il top e le giacche, ma anche le superfici strutturate, le pieghe e i dettagli di cucitura portano un tocco di colore nella vita. Altrove, un blocco di diamante conferisce una luce, un tocco grafico e chic alle borse.

Monday, 20 October 2014

Immerse yourself in a spectrum of essential new shades fresh off the Spring/Summer 2015 catwalks, as Banana Essence and Blueberry Milk update new season styles with a contemporary feel. Both of these inspirational colours have been taken from the Trendstop Colour on the Catwalks S/S15 Report, which contains 40 forward shades identified by our colour trend experts. Directional yet wearable, discover how these shades can be translated into retail merchandising for the upcoming season.

Banana Essence

In London, Banana Essence emerges as an essential new shade, offering a luminous, optimistic note to casual styling. Openwork lace fabrics express an elegant femininity, while bold black contrasts add emphasis in the form of soles on kiltie fringe brogues or embellished T-dresses.

Blueberry Milk

A soothingly sweet shade of Blueberry Milk updates apparel and accessories with a summery appeal, as seen in Paris collections. On tops and jackets, textured surfaces like intricate pleating and contemporary seam details bring the colour to life. Elsewhere, diamond blocking lends a light, graphic touch to chic bags.

NYFW: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends spring/summer 2015

Friday, 17 October 2014

All eyes are fixed on the catwalks in New York, London, Milan and Paris this month, where the newest collections for summer 2015 are being displayed. But what trends will make it to the top most wanted list for next spring? FashionUnited lists the top 5 trends from New York Fashion Week.?

#1 Sport

Sportswear is no longer confined to the boundaries of the gym and trendy jogging leggings are spotted on the streets on a daily basis. So it was not very strange to see sportfashion items in pop up in collections for a number of labels, such as DKNY, Lacoste and L.A.M.B. Alexander Wang took the trend one step further and translated trainer designs into clothing. For example, the iconic Nike Flyknit was one of the many sportswear shoes that he transformed, turning it into a body-con dress. He also presented bomber jackets and tops whose lines and colors were taken from trendy sneakers.

#2 Layers

An abundance of fabric was spotted on the catwalk, crafted into pleats, folds and layers. Together it created a rich and lush image, but remained nevertheless sober due to the use of subdued colors. The lack of bold colors also makes its more wearable and accessible. This trend was spotted at the Row, the luxury brand from Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Incidentally, this collection was the last to be designed by Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, who is set to begin her new role at Hermés.

#3 Over-sized jacket

The large over-sized jacket has been a staple for the past few seasons, and remains a strong trend next summer. The jacket was spotted in two out of three collection presentations during New York Fashion Week, appearing in different lengths and colors, with or without lapels, with button or casually held shut with a knotted belt. One new version of this trend to emerge was the calf-length jacket, without sleeves, usually paired with long, wide pants.

#4 Summer sweater

The sweater is another trend that has overlapped several seasons and for spring/summer 2015 a number of variations have emerged. Special material blends, summer knits and a range of colors and necklines have been spotted. Victoria Beckham showed a special example during her catwalk show, which featured braided details at the neck and hemline of the sweater.

#5 Bandeau Top

It remains to be seen whether or not this trend is picked up by the general public, as this catwalk trend may not be for every fashion lover. Nevertheless, the somewhat revealing bandeau top has made it onto the top 5 list because it was spotted all over the catwalk. It was tastefully combined with a prairie skirt at Diane von Furstenberg and Donna Karan, whilst it was given a more festive chic vibe at Alexander Wang and hip at Marc by Marc Jacobs.

 

 

MFW: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends spring/summer 2015

Friday, 17 October 2014

All eyes are fixed on the catwalks in New York, London, Milan and Paris this month, where the newest collections for summer 2015 are being displayed. But what trends will make it to the top most wanted list for next spring? FashionUnited lists the top 5 trends from New York Fashion Week.

#1 The Seventies hippies

The seventies enjoyed a strong comeback on the catwalks in Milan. It is rare for one trend to come forward so prominently in the majority of the collection presentations, but seventies fever was spotted at Gucci, Max Mara, Just Cavalli, Costume National, Etro and Emilio Pucci in the form of retro flower prints, floppy hats, suede mini skirts, fringes and sharp collars. Emilio Pucci - Etro - Max Mara

#2 Transparent

Transparent fabrics, mesh and sheer veils, or as the mainstream media delicately put it ?uncovered nipples on the catwalks in Milan.? The Italian fashion capital is indeed no place for prudish models or those faint of heart, but those who are not distracted by the exposed flesh will see the limitless opportunities for summer layering, unexpected cut-outs and a combination with bandeau tops which emerged during NYFW.

#3 Abundant combinations

Colorful mixtures of prints, stripes, polka dots and embroidery were spotted on the catwalks of Milan. But color blocking, the use of contrasting bands and belts, and the addition of an unexpected accent was also seen. Overall outfits were busy, wild with a touch of happiness.

#4 Elaborated denim

It is rare to see a plain pair of jeans shown on the catwalk, but an elaborated pair of jeans featuring applications and rhinestones like Dolce & Gabbana presented is a bird of a different feather. Bottega Veneta also showcased denim with applications, but in with a more understated and chic touch. Frida Giannini presented a unique twist to the head-to-toe denim look during the presentation of Gucci's acclaimed collection.

#5 Asymmetrical neckline

The asymmetrical neckline, often paired with a revealed shoulder, has been on our list for the past two weeks but failed to make it into the top 5 trends list. However after Milan fashion week, we are unable to avoid this trend. The neckline was spotted all over the catwalk at Angelos Bratis, Emporio Armani, Costume National and Versace, combined with a bare shoulder and long sleeve on the opposing arm.

 

 

PFW: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends spring/summer 2015

Friday, 17 October 2014

The Paris fashion shows wrapped up Wednesday with yellow, wide-legged trousers, transparency and 1970s-inspired looks among the catwalk trends likely to be winging their way towards the high street for spring/summer 2015.

The highlight of the nine-day fashion marathon was Jean Paul Gaultier's spectacular last ready-to-wear show before bowing out to concentrate on haute couture. The hottest ticket in town, the show was crammed with Gaultier signatures such as stripes and bodices and topped off with a large dose of his famously wacky sense of humour. Here are five key trends that emerged from the catwalks:

#1 Transparency

Sheer looks were everywhere this season, from Rick Owens and Valentino to Corrie Nielsen and Vionnet. It was all a lot more discreet than the last round of ready-to-wear collections when Vivienne Westwood even had one model flaunt her nipples in a bridal dress. US designer Owens, whose collection featured a lot of transparent looks, explained that his objective was always "bareness with modesty" when using sheer fabrics. "I try not to have too much transparency over the bust. I don't like flashing a lot -- but I love skin," he said.

Valentino #2 Wide-legged trousers

At Chanel they came in the brand's trademark tweedy fabric, at Chloe it was denim, while Balmain plumped for mousseline and leather. Wide-legged and flared trousers, cropped or in some cases virtually trailing along the floor, look set to make a comeback next season.

Chanel #3 Normal

Paris fashion may not have succumbed to the mass market retail trend for very ordinary-looking clothing known as "Normcore". But many looks on the catwalks did feature a practical feel. From a hoodie poncho at Chloe to a navy ensemble that looked a touch like hospital scrubs at Celine, there were plenty of very simple pieces that left some critics yearning for a few more fireworks. Fashion consultant Jean-Jacques Picart told AFP that fashion seemed to have strayed into "a certain banality". But he said the risk was no greater than a few years when fashion went too far in the other direction in a "frenzy of excess". The balance was likely to be readjusted next season, he said.

Chloe #4 Yellow

Always a good colour for summer, Emanuel Ungaro designer Fausto Puglisi's glamorous one-shouldered yellow gown and blue and yellow prints were among a string of upbeat yellow looks on the catwalks. Bold dashes of yellow also brightened JC de Castelbajac's abstract patterns and Carven's motor racing-inspired looks. Caroline Herrera meanwhile used sherbet for outfits including a two-piece suit and a long floaty strapless dress. Phillip Lim chose shocking yellow for trousers and tops.

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac 1960s/1970s

It was impossible not to have 1970s flashbacks from one Elie Saab white jumpsuit and some long, floaty dresses with plunging neck lines. Valentino's long-sleeved print dresses exuded the same 1970s feel. Elsewhere Corrie Nielsen went for a string of "Mad Men" style looks and Giambattista Valli also featured 1960s influenced silhouettes. On feet, knee-high laced gladiator sandals completed the retro look. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac (Helen Rowe, AFP)

 

 

LFW: Top Fashion Week-trends spring/summer 2015

Wednesday, 17 September 2014

Another fashion week has been and gone in London, but as the clothes are squirrelled away until spring, there's time to reflect on the key trends of the season. Metallics, florals, colourful stripes, pristine whites, sportswear and flats are key looks for spring/summer 2015 -- but don't wear them all at once.

#1 Flower power

Ignore Meryl Streep's withering put-down in "The Devil Wears Prada" -- "Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking" -- and embrace the power of a well-placed petal. Luxury label Marchesa led the pack with exquisite floral threadwork trickling across silk tiered ruffles and billowing sleeves. Matthew Williamson had gorgeous prints on flowing dresses, Jonathan Saunders used simple petal designs, and Simone Rocha applied red poppies onto sheer dresses. Hip young label House of Holland used clashing colours for a 1970s-inspired look, while also adorning denim jackets, jeans and handbags with brightly coloured posies.

#2 Metal shine

London designers chose many ways to sparkle, from a pleated gold skirt to metallic embroidery and silver shoes, but no one does it with as much attitude as Tom Ford. The US designer showed silver mini-dresses with metallic flower embroidery over the nipples, skin-tight gold sequinned cocktails and gold platform sandals. Greece's Mary Katrantzou also showed dresses and jewellery with metallic snake details and sparkling black tops on a runway of glittering volcanic chips, in a collection inspired by the birth of planet Earth.

#3 Flats

This practical trend has been around for a while, but thankfully designers are no longer vying to make the ugliest versions possible. Temperley London styled lace-up printed trainers with its elegant collection of calf-length trousers, jackets, waistcoats and dresses in stripes, prints and checks. There were brightly coloured sandals from Serbian-born Roksanda Ilincic and print kings Peter Pilotto, while Jonathan Saunders matched them with beautiful print dresses. Simone Rocha, the daughter of Irish designer John Rocha, matched the shoes to the dresses, with sandals and lace-ups in pink, black, nude, floral print and the odd feather trim.

#4 Vibrant colour

As winter looms, look ahead to spring days with clothes bursting with colour and bright prints. London was filled with pale pinks and blues, bright oranges, reds and yellows, offset with nude and cream shades. Mixing many of them, Burberry Prorsum turned to nature for a vibrant collection of dresses, jackets and skirts in poppy red, fern yellow, dragonfly blue and beetle green. There were stronger tones and blocks of colour at Roksanda, who used manmade fabrics to create bright orange and sky blue sculptured shapes.

#5 Stripes

Deeply flattering if you wear them the right way and hideous if you don't, stripes featured heavily in this week's shows. Jonathan Saunders used his in shimmering blue against black velvet, while Giles had baby pink pinstripe trouser suits. Topshop Unique used different sized horizontal stripes in blue, white, black and red on dresses and vertical stripes on trousers and jackets. At Preen, the husband-and-wife team beloved of celebrities, there were stripes in red, blue, yellow against a black background, almost like tape holding the clothes together.

#6 Clean white

Hard to pull off and almost impossible for anyone who takes public transport, the all-white look makes as much a statement as bold colour. British designer Amanda Wakeley showed how it was done with beautifully cut, pristine collection presented to a small crowd of ladies sipping champagne at her Mayfair shop.There were luxurious floor-length white trousers, shirts with the sleeves rolled at the elbow and voluminous skirts. On a similar theme, Pringle of Scotland had sharply tailored trousers with sleeveless sheer tops and crisp, boxy shirts. By contrast, Turkish designer Bora Aksu had intricate lace items matched with grey silk, while Erdem layered patterns of white leaves over sheer, slim-fitting dresses.

#7 Sports chic

Comfortable and stylish, this look works well with the fashion for trainers -- but must not be matched with jogging trousers lest someone redirect you to the gym. Knitwear label Pringle of Scotland showed tennis-inspired little white dresses, mesh vests and elasticated trim, a detail also seen on white and print tops at Jasper Conran. Canadian designer Jean-Pierre Braganza had graphic print sports jackets among striking monochrome dresses, a silhouette also seen at Amanda Wakeley, who added to the sporty luxe effect with judo belts.(AFP)

Paris Fashion Week: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends spring/summer 2015

The highlight of the nine-day fashion marathon was Jean Paul Gaultier's spectacular last ready-to-wear show before bowing out to concentrate on haute couture. The hottest ticket in town, the show was crammed with Gaultier signatures such as stripes and bodices and topped off with a large dose of his famously wacky sense of humour.

Men's colour trends for spring/summer 2015

Monday, 29 September 2014

Menswear apparel and accessories are given a fresh lease of life with the emergence of two must-have fashion colours for Spring/Summer 2015. Bold and modern, Cornflower Skies blue and Papaya orange both lend energy to new season styles, as predicted by Trendstop's trend experts in our S/S15 Men's Colour forecast. As part of the exclusive partnership between Trendstop and FashionUnited, discover how both of these shades can be translated into retail merchandising for the upcoming season.

CORNFLOWER SKIES

New season menswear styles are saturated in a true mid-shade of Cornflower Skies, which tempers blue with a hint of purple. More sophisticated than sporty, the colour lends a contemporary cool appeal to utility jackets, button-down shirting and tailored pants, while tonal stripes add interest to casual bag accessories.

PAPAYA

Energetic Papaya replaces last season's Tangerine's Peach shade, moving towards a fruitier colour with a fluoro cast. Supple, shiny leathers make a youthful statement in the form of summer jackets, while sportive mesh sees a bold update in top form. For a more subtle interpretation, look to tinted frame sunglasses.

Milan Fashion Week: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends spring/summer 2015

Tuesday, 23 September 2014

All eyes are fixed on the catwalks in New York, London, Milan and Paris this month, where the newest collections for summer 2015 are being displayed. But what trends will make it to the top most wanted list for next spring? FashionUnited lists the top 5 trends from Milan Fashion Week.

Transparent fabrics, mesh and sheer veils, or as the mainstream media delicately put it “uncovered nipples on the catwalks in Milan.” The Italian fashion capital is indeed no place for prudish models or those faint of heart, but those who are not distracted by the exposed flesh will see the limitless opportunities for summer layering, unexpected cut-outs and a combination with bandeau tops which emerged during NYFW.

#3 Abundant combinations

Colorful mixtures of prints, stripes, polka dots and embroidery were spotted on the catwalks of Milan. But color blocking, the use of contrasting bands and belts, and the addition of an unexpected accent was also seen. Overall outfits were busy, wild with a touch of happiness.

#4 Elaborated denim

It is rare to see a plain pair of jeans shown on the catwalk, but an elaborated pair of jeans featuring applications and rhinestones like Dolce & Gabbana presented is a bird of a different feather. Bottega Veneta also showcased denim with applications, but in with a more understated and chic touch. Frida Giannini presented a unique twist to the head-to-toe denim look during the presentation of Gucci's acclaimed collection.

#5 Asymmetrical neckline

The asymmetrical neckline, often paired with a revealed shoulder, has been on our list for the past two weeks but failed to make it into the top 5 trends list. However after Milan fashion week, we are unable to avoid this trend. The neckline was spotted all over the catwalk at Angelos Bratis, Emporio Armani, Costume National and Versace, combined with a bare shoulder and long sleeve on the opposing arm.

 

 

Milan Fashion Week: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends zomer 2015

maandag 22 september 2014

In september zijn alle ogen gericht op de catwalks van New York, Londen, Milaan en Parijs waar de nieuwe collecties voor zomer 2015 worden getoond. Wat staat volgend jaar op de verlanglijst van de goedgeïnformeerde modeconsument? Na New York en Londen zet Fashionunited de 5 belangrijkste tendensen van Milaan Fashion Week op een rij.

#1 Seventies hippies

De jaren 70 vieren hoogtij op de Milanese catwalk. Zelden komt een trend zo duidelijk bij het gros van de collectiepresentaties naar voren. Van retro bloemenprints en flaphoeden, tot suède minirokjes, franjes en puntkragen. Te zien bij Gucci, Max Mara, Just Cavalli, Costume National, Etro en Emilio Pucci.

#2 Transparant

Transparante stoffen, gaas en doorzichtige voiles, of zoals de reguliere media het formuleert “Blote tepels op de catwalk van Milaan”. Voor preutse modellen is in de Italiaanse modestad inderdaad geen plaats, maar wie zich niet laat afleiden door al dat bloot ziet mogelijkheden voor zomerse laagjesmode, onverwachte uitsnedes en een combinatie met de bandeautops die zich tijdens NYFW manifesteerden.

#3 Uitbundige mix

Kleurrijke mixes van prints, strepen, stippen en borduursels. Maar ook color blocking, contrasterende banen en ceintuurs of onverwachte accenten. Druk, wild en heel erg vrolijk.

#4 Uitgewerkte denim

Een gewone spijkerbroek zie je zelden op de catwalk, maar een uitgewerkt model met applicaties en strass zoals bij Dolce & Gabbana kan natuurlijk wel. Bottega Veneta brengt ook denim met applicaties, maar meer ingetogen en chic. Frida Giannini geeft in de bejubelde collectie van Gucci een heel eigen draai aan de head-to-toe denim look.

#5 Asymmetrische halslijn

De assymmetrische halslijn, vaak met cold shoulder, staat al twee weken op ons lijstje, maar viel in New York en Londen toch steeds buiten de top 5. Na Milaan kunnen we er niet meer omheen. Hier ook te zien; de blote schouder gecombineerd met een lange mouw aan de andere arm. Onder meer bij Angelos Bratis (met dank aan zijn mentor Giorgio Armani?), Emporio Armani, Costume National en Versace.

 

 

London Fashion Week: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends zomer 2015

woensdag 17 september 2014

Alle ogen zijn deze maand gericht op de catwalks van New York, Londen, Milaan en Parijs waar de nieuwe collecties voor zomer 2015 worden getoond. Wat staat volgend jaar op de verlanglijst van de goedgeïnformeerde modeconsument? Na New York zet Fashionunited nu de 5 belangrijkste tendensen van London Fashion Week op een rij.

#1 Groen

Letterlijk de kleur groen, maar ook ‘groen’ als synoniem voor natuur, bloemen en planten is een terugkerend thema in diverse collecties op de Londense catwalk. Britse moderecensenten hebben het over English garden, flower power, tropical foliage enVictorian greenhouses. Onder meer te zien bij Matthew Willamson, Orla Kiely, House of Holland, Giles, Issa en Erdem.

#2 Folie

Hoogglans foliestoffen, hier als zilverpapier en daar met een geoliede finish. Het zijn materialen die het licht reflecteren en de zon doen schijnen. Vrolijk, jong, een beetje brutaal met een vleugje eighties. De nieuwe hoogglansstoffen zijn ook nog een stuk comfortabeler dan die van weleer, én ademend dus geschikt voor zomerse temperaturen.

#3 Laser cut

Van clear cut tot hoogst gecompliceerd uitgesneden patronen. Laser cutting en dan vaak in leer, viert hoogtij tijdens London Fashion Week. De geavanceerde techniek is niet voorbehouden aan dure designernamen, ook labels uit het betaalbare middensegment haken in.

#4 Lange mouwloze colbert

De kuitlange jas zonder mouwen dook vorige week op tijdens de modeweek in New York en ook in Londen is het zomerse colbert veel te zien. Deze jas is niet alleen mouwloos en lang, maar ook ruimvallend en zo een speels alternatief voor het klassieke broekpak voor dames. Dat pak blijft trouwens alomtegenwoordig, maar dat past ook wel in deze stad.

#5 Wit

Veel wit in Londen. Nu is wit natuurlijk bij uitstek een zomerse kleur. Fris en koel; tennis en witte stranden. Ook in een zakelijke omgeving werkt de kleur wit goed, zoals te zien in de sterke collectie van Temperley London. Jong en onschuldig bij Preen Line (let ook op de neon kleurige riempjes) en sportief bij Pringle of Scotland.

 

 

Colour trends for fall/winter 2015-16

Monday, 15 September 2014

Inspired by the latest Fall/Winter styles to hit the catwalks, Trendstop's colour experts have pinpointed two key womenswear shades emerging for the F/W15-16 season. Play to your feminine side with Innocent Pink, or embrace the autumnal mood with Cinnamon Citrine. These essential shades have been taken from our F/W15-16 Women's Colour Forecast, and as neither have been seen in previous seasons, both are likely to continue as mainstream colour trends for the year ahead.

INNOCENT PINK

A key colour emerging in Milan, Innocent Pink illuminates sleek, contemporary womenswear designs with a delicate freshness. Soft woollens look feminine in the form of loose-fit skirts, while accessories see supple bags come in matte leather textures and shine is introduced in the form of retro-chic sunglasses.

CINNAMON CITRINE

Over in New York, tangy orange is tinged with reddish undertones to create a warm shade of Cinnamon Citrine. Another colour that lends itself well to knits, chunky knit sweats and soft tailored pants chime perfectly with the autumn season. Meanwhile, Lurex yarns add a glittery statement to evening overcoats.

New York Fashion Week: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends zomer 2015

donderdag 11 september 2014

Alle ogen zijn deze maand gericht op de catwalks van New York, Londen, Milaan en Parijs waar de nieuwe collecties voor zomer 2015 worden getoond. Wat staat volgend jaar op de verlanglijst van de goedgeïnformeerde modeconsument? Fashionunited zet de 5 belangrijkste tendensen van New York Fashion Week op een rij.

#1 Sport

Sportkleding wordt al lang niet meer alleen in de sportschool gedragen, hippe hardloopleggings zijn ook veel te zien op straat. Niet zo gek dus dat sportfashion items in collecties van diverse labels opduiken zoals bij DKNY, Lacoste en L.A.M.B. Alexander Wang gaat nog een stapje verder: hij heeft sportschoenen naar kledingstukken vertaald. De bekende Nike Flyknit hardloopschoen is bijvoorbeeld omgetoverd tot strakke jurk en ook in de bomberjacks en tops zijn de lijnen en kleuren van hippe sneakers terug te zien.

#2 Gelaagdheid

Rijk stofgebruik met plooien, vouwen en laagjes. Het is een beeld dat weelderig lijkt door de hoeveelheden stof, maar sober blijft door het ingetogen kleurgebruik. Dat maakt het ook draagbaar en toegankelijk. In New York onder andere te zien bij The Row, het luxelabel van Mary Kate en Ashley Olsen. Deze collectie van The Row is overigens nog van de hand van Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, die binnenkort bij Hermès in dienst treedt.

#3 Ruime jas

De grote, ruime overjas gaat al een paar seizoenen mee, en blijft ook volgend jaar zomer een stevige trend. In 2 op de 3 collectiepresentaties komt dit stuk terug. In verschillende lengtes en kleuren, met of zonder revers, met knopen of een nonchalant geknoopte ceintuur. Nieuw is de kuitlange versie zonder mouwen, meestal gedragen met een lange broek met wijdere pijpen.

#4 Zomertrui

De sweater is nog zo’n trend die meerdere seizoenen overlapt en in de zomercollecties voor 2015 in verschillende versies opduikt. Er zijn bijzondere materiaalmixen, zomerse breisels en een keur aan kleuren en halslijnen. Victoria Beckham brengt een bijzonder exemplaar met gevlochten details aan de hals en onderkant van de trui.

#5 Bandeautop

Het is natuurlijk de vraag of deze look de oversteek van catwalk naar breed publiek haalt, want de bandeautop is niet voor iedereen weggelegd. Toch besloten om ‘m in de lijst op te nemen omdat deze - wat blote - top in zoveel collecties te zien is. Smaakvol gecombineerd met wijde rok bijvoorbeeld zoals bij Diane von Furstenberg en Donna Karan. Feestelijk en chic bij Alexander Wang en jeugdig en hip bij Marc by Marc Jacobs.

 

 

New York Fashion Week: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends spring/summer 2015

Thursday, 11 September 2014

All eyes are fixed on the catwalks in New York, London, Milan and Paris this month, where the newest collections for summer 2015 are being displayed. But what trends will make it to the top most wanted list for next spring? FashionUnited lists the top 5 trends from New York Fashion Week.

#1 Sport

Sportswear is no longer confined to the boundaries of the gym and trendy jogging leggings are spotted on the streets on a daily basis. So it was not very strange to see sportfashion items in pop up in collections for a number of labels, such as DKNY, Lacoste and L.A.M.B. Alexander Wang took the trend one step further and translated trainer designs into clothing. For example, the iconic Nike Flyknit was one of the many sportswear shoes that he transformed, turning it into a body-con dress. He also presented bomber jackets and tops whose lines and colors were taken from trendy sneakers.

#2 Layers

An abundance of fabric was spotted on the catwalk, crafted into pleats, folds and layers. Together it created a rich and lush image, but remained nevertheless sober due to the use of subdued colors. The lack of bold colors also makes its more wearable and accessible. This trend was spotted at the Row, the luxury brand from Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.

#3 Over-sized jacket

The large over-sized jacket has been a staple for the past few seasons, and remains a strong trend next summer. The jacket was spotted in two out of three collection presentations during New York Fashion Week, appearing in different lengths and colors, with or without lapels, with button or casually held shut with a knotted belt. One new version of this trend to emerge was the calf-length jacket, without sleeves, usually paired with long, wide pants.

#4 Summer sweater

The sweater is another trend that has overlapped several seasons and for spring/summer 2015 a number of variations have emerged. Special material blends, summer knits and a range of colors and necklines have been spotted. Victoria Beckham showed a special example during her catwalk show, which featured braided details at the neck and hemline of the sweater.

#5 Bandeau Top

It remains to be seen whether or not this trend is picked up by the general public, as this catwalk trend may not be for every fashion lover. Nevertheless, the somewhat revealing bandeau top has made it onto the top 5 list because it was spotted all over the catwalk. It was tastefully combined with a prairie skirt at Diane von Furstenberg and Donna Karan, whilst it was given a more festive chic vibe at Alexander Wang and hip at Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Top 5 Milan Fashion Week Trends F/W 2014-15

Monday, 31 March 2014

CATWALK_Following Milan’s latest fashion week, Trendstop.com’s trend professionals have distilled thousands of images from the shows to bring you an expert analysis on next season’s key styles. Our Top 5 MFW Trends - selected exclusively for FashionUnited - highlight key developments across colour, print, clothing, accessories and footwear that can be easily adapted into retail merchandising for Fall/Winter 2014-15.

1) COLOUR – Jade Teal

Vintage-inspired Jade Teal lends an approachable sophistication to Milan designs. A minimalist approach allows materials and cuts to speak for themselves, as seen with Marni’s leather bag or Jil Sander’s midi skirt.

2) PRINT – Painterly Expressionisms

Apparel is transformed into canvases for artistic prints and patterns this season. Painted daubs resemble florals on MSGM sweaters, as Marni’s dress makes a statement with a multicoloured palette effect.

3) CLOTHING – Funnel Neck Dress

Simple yet chic, sporty Fall/Winter dresses incorporate funnel neck collars for a modern silhouette. Costume National add interest to an understated design with a bold colorway, as artistic prints borrow from Milan's key print trend at Sportmax.

4) ACCESSORIES – The Folded Shopper

Shopper accessories are relaxed with supple textures that allow for folded silhouette, allowing for new way to carry bags. Jil Sander’s black leather style almost resembles a clutch, as Gabriele Colangelo adds a sporty element with lemon-lime blocking.

5) FOOTWEAR – Elegant Sports Blocking

Rounding off the Milan Fall/Winter trends, elegant footwear styles take on an athletic appeal with bold color blocking. Pops of red stand out on Angelo Marani’s stiletto heels, while Prada go avant-garde with a perforated yellow wedge.

MFW: Top 5 Fashion Week-trends 2014-2015

dinsdag 25 februari 2014

Tijdens de halfjaarlijkse modeweken in New York, Londen, Milaan en Parijs worden de belangrijkste modetrends bepaald. Wat zet de consument komend najaar op de verlanglijst? Fashionunited zet de 5 opvallendste modetrends tijdens Milaan Fashion Week op een rij.

#1 Dierenprinttrui

Vossen, zwanen, eekhoorntjes. De Milanese ontwerpers haalden allen inspiratie uit het dierenrijk in een poging om de nieuwe trendtrui te ontwerpen. Kenzo ontketende vorig jaar een rage met de tijgersweater en ook de galaxy-truien van Balenciaga gingen als warme broodjes over de toonbank. Dolce & Gabbana zet met sprookjesachtige opdrukken in op de zwaan, Stella Jean denkt dat de kip de nieuwe tijger is en Antonio Marras gaat voor de wolf.

#2 Puntneus

Het toppunt van de platte schoenen-trend kwam in januari, toen Karl Lagerfeld alle 64 modellen in zijn haute couture-show voor Chanel over de catwalk liet paraderen op sneakers. Ook in Milaan bleven de modellen met beide benen op de grond staan en kozen de ontwerpers voor platte schoenen met een puntneus. Marni creëerde clowneske instappers voorzien van een driehoekige zilveren en gouden neusjes, No.21 showde lage jaren zestig puntschoenen met glitters en Bottega Veneta voerde de klassieke herenschoen uit met puntige neus. Eenzame uitzondering was Prada. Hoofdontwerpster Miuccia Prada ging niet alleen rechtstreeks tegen de stroming in met sleehakken, maar deed ook een poging om de rechte neus terug in het straatbeeld te krijgen.

#3 Kleurvlakken

Kleurvlakken zijn het nieuwe color blocking. In New York, Londen en nu ook Milaan waren opvallend veel geometrische kleurenvormen te zien. Voor zijn tweede collectie voor Angona creëerde Stefano Pilati kleurvlakken in de vorm van golven. Bottega Veneta maakte gekartelde vlakken in beige, geel en poederrood en Marni mixte vloeiende pasteltinten met strakke vlakken felroze, kobaltblauw en zwart. Opvallend was het jaren zestig en jaren zeventig kleurgebruik, zoals bij Missoni. Het modehuis showde jurken en rokken voorzien Piet Mondriaan-vlakken, maar dan ingekleurd met herfstachtig bruin, oranje en grijs.

#4 Cape

Megajassen zoals in New York waren er ook veel in Milaan, maar er was nog een mantel die de show stal: de cape. Overdadig versierd met borduursels en stenen in de vorm van takken, vogels en vossen bij Dolce & Gabbana, in sober grijs bij Giorgio Armani en van geblokt plaid bij Salvatore Ferragamo.

#5 Zonder mouwen

Een koele wintertrend: lange gilets, trenchcoats en mantels zónder mouwen. Iceberg deed het, MaxMara deed het, MSMG deed het. Vooral om te laten zien wat er onder die volumineuze jassen zit. Laagjes zijn hierbij het toverwoord om er komende winter toch warmpjes bij te kunnen lopen. In veel gevallen werden de mouwloze jassen ook gedragen als jurk.

 

 

LFW: Top 5 grootste Fashion Week-trends 2014-2015

dinsdag 18 februari 2014

Tijdens de halfjaarlijkse modeweken in New York, Londen, Milaan en Parijs worden de belangrijkste modetrends bepaald. Wat zet de consument komend najaar op de verlanglijst? Fashionunited zet de 5 grootste modetrends tijdens Londen Fashion Week op een rij.

#1 Bloemenprint

De bloemenprint is normaal gesproken een vast onderdeel van voorjaarscollecties, maar in Londen kozen de ontwerpers voor een fleurig najaar. Er waren tulpen bij Mother of Pearl, vergeet-me-nietjes en pioenen bij Michael van der Ham en madeliefjes als van een Andy Warhol-zeefdruk bij Issa. Christopher Bailey liet een complete bloementuin op de trenchcoats, jurken, capes en sjaals van Burberry Prorsum schilderen.

#2 Kobaltblauw

Dé kleur van volgend najaar: kobaltblauw. In New York was de felle tint al te zien bij Derek Lam en Proenza Schouler, in Londen zetten onder andere Giles, Holly Fulton, Jean Pierre Braganza, Temperley London en Topshop Unique in op knallend blauw. Jonathan Saunders en Michael van der Ham combineerden kobalt met een andere seizoenslieveling: pastelblauw.

#3 Laagjes

Een alternatief voor de grote jas: laagjes. Bij Burberry Prorsum tijgerden de modellen als nomadische zakenvrouwen over de catwalk, die in lange blousejurken met daarover een kort jasje, lange sjaals en capes om de schouder van vergadering in New York naar een afspraak in Hongkong kunnen vliegen. Topshop Unique bedacht ook een slimme manier om er volgend jaar winter stijlvol, maar warm bij te lopen en gooide een strapless jurk over een blouse en rokken in verschillende lengtes over elkaar.

#4 Assymetrie

Jurken, jassen, rokken: de meesten zijn asymmetrisch komend seizoen. Bij J.W. Anderson waren de bandjes van zijn avondjurken afgezakt, Roksanda Ilinic showde rokken die voor de helft knielang en voor de andere helft enkellang waren en Mary Katrantzou toonde cocktailjurken met een bandje waar aan een kant een langere lap geplisseerde stof hing.

#5 Stelletje

Net als in New York stikte het in Londen van de smokings en mantelpakjes. Christopher Kane, Giles, Felder Felder, Emilia Wickstead en Erdem lieten allen eigentijdse varianten van het vrouwenkostuum zien. Maar er was nog een trend te ontdekken: stelletjes van een bijpassende top en een rok of broek. Issa ontwierp een grote trui met grijze, roze, blauwe en gele kleurvlakken met bijpassende rok. Christopher Kane en latex mantelpakje van een kort, vierkant jasje met ruches en een minirokje. En House of Holland creëerde een roestbruin retro ensemble van een kort jasje met fransjes en een tapstoelopende broek. Paul Smith ging verder waar het pyjamadressing twee seizoenen geleden ophield door satijnen pyjamablouses te combineren met chique broeken met damask jacquard-dessin.

 

 

Eindeutige Trends auf der London Fashion Week

Mittwoch, 22 September 2010

Die London Fashion Week hat am Freitag einen geradezu astralen Start erlebt mit den vorgezogenen Catwalks von Paul Costelloe, der Sustainable Fashion Show und PPQ als Abschluss dieses Tages. Wer es nicht geschafft hat, den mit Designer Shows, Off-Schedule Shows, zahlreichen Vorführungen und Ausstellern extrem gut gefüllten Terminplan in allen Einzelheiten wahrzunehmen, wird sich freuen, dass BFC erstmalig Live-Streams aus dem Catwalk Show Space unter www.londonfashionweek.co.uk/live zeigt.

Nach einer prallen Woche New Yorker Schauen haben die Briten die Fashion Week mit einem Feuerwerk aus Farben und Persönlichkeit eröffnet, was Paul Costelloe zu Anlass genommen hat, extra-kurze Babydolls und Blasenrockkleider mit übergroßen Schleifen im Rücken und Playsuits zu zeigen - fast die gesamte Kollektion strahlte in einer Palette aus Grau, Silber und Weiß. In seinen Show Notes war zu lesen, dass "diese Kollektion radikal anders ist, als die vorherigen Linien", und man darf guten Gewissens sagen, dass er damit Recht hatte. Eher sexy mit einer guten Dosis Stolz.

Ebenfalls auf dem Londoner Programm stand die erste Sustainable Fashion Show, wo die wichtigsten Looks aus der Feder etablierter und aufsteigender, nachhaltig arbeitender Designer zu sehen waren. Unterstützt wurde die Veranstaltung durch START, einer Initiative der Prince Charles Charities Foundation für die Förderung und das Feiern nachhaltiger Lebensweisen. Die Partnerschaft stärkt das Engagement von BFC, die Entwicklung nachhaltiger Mode mittels seiner Estethica-Initiative zu fördern. Zu den ausgestellten Designern zählen Dame Vivienne Westwood mit ihrer World’s End Collection, Stella McCartney, From Somewhere, People Tree, Junky Styling, Henrietta Ludgate und Christopher Raeburn.

Topshop Unique hat dieses Jahr seine Veranstaltungen nach Waterloo verlegt, wo Karen Bonsor, die Designerin der Marke die 17. Kollektion am 2. Tag der LFW vorstellte. Unique ist die progressive Kollektion von Topshop und Bonsor beschreibt die Unique-Frau mit diesen Worten: “Ein echtes Individuum, jemand, der keine Angst hat, in der Masse aufzufallen und der die Mode liebt”. Als eindeutiges Statement, dass die 70er DER Trend bei SS11 sind, zeigte sich die Show im puren 70er-Chic mit langen wallenden Kleidern, Fransencapes und Chiffonblusen irgendwo zwischen Stevie Nicks und dem Rock’n’Roll Stil von Overalls und schmalen Schlaghosen wie bei Joan Jett, mit verspiegelten Pilotenbrillen auf den Nasen der Models, die dazu mit Plexiglas-Plateauschuhen einherkamen.

Früher an diesem Tag hat ‘All Walks Beyond the Catwalk’ SNAPPED vorgestellt, einen Live-Phototermin mit dem Photographen Rankin, der ein vielseites Portrait der bristischen Mode mit Models erstellt hat, die aus unterschiedlichen Alterklassen stammten und sich durch vielfältige Körpermasse auszeichneten.

Jude Law könnte Twenty8Twelve die Schau gestohlen haben, doch erst seit Kurzem ernstgenomme Marke unter Federführung der berühmten Schwestern Sienna and Savannah Miller hat bewiesen, eine keineswegs pretentiöse, dafür aber eher hübsche Kollektion lustiger, erschwinglicher und tragbarer Looks bieten zu können. Unter den Themen fand man Fifties Americana mit Mini-Ballkleidchen aus Jeans und gekräuselten Unterröcken sowie bedruckte Rüschen-Schlauchkleider aus Jersey und Maxikleider. Vielleicht nicht unbedingt die passendste Laufsteg-Kollektion, aber eindeutig ein Kandidat für die Fashion Week und ganz bestimmt ein echteer Verkaufsschlager.

Am 3. Tag war das Programm erneut vollgepackt, diesmal mit Veteranen wie Vivienne Westwood, Margaret Howell, Julien MacDonald und Matthew Williamson, die sich unter die Neulinge Michael van der Ham, Mary Katrantzou, Kinder Aggugini und Richard Nicholl gemischt haben. Ebenfalls zu sehen waren Unconditional, Mulberry und Acne.

Julien Macdonald hat gezeigt, dass er die Kür des Roten Teppichs im Hollywood-Stil bestehen kann mit Chiffon, Tüll und Spitze in hauptsächlich blassen Tönen. In der Daywear-Kollektion waren Streifen auf Shorts und Blumenmuster auf den Kleidern an der Tagesordnung. Macdonald hat die von ihm aufgekauften 1920er-Vintagekleider erst zerschnitten, dann gedreht und die Models in Bienenkörbe gesteckt, die aus dem "Tal der Puppen" stammen könnten.

Mit Spannung wurde die Kollektion des holländischen Designerns Michael van der Ham erwartet, der sich nach zwei Saisons auf der Fashion East einen offiziellen Platz im Kalender sichern konnte. Van der Ham arbeitete früher mit Alexander McQueen und Sophia Kokosolaki und seine 3D-Kollagenkleider haben den richtigen Ton für den Frühling gefunden. Seine Patchwork-Kleider haben einen Reifeprozess durchlaufen und erscheinen diesmal in edlerer Aufmachung. Vorbei war es mit Bauwolldruckstoffen, die jetzt eleganteren Materialien wie Seide, Brokat und Pailletten gewichen sind und zum ersten Mal das von ihm eigenhändig kreierte Gewebe Tactile Devore Velvets präsentierte. All dies in Gestalt einer romantischen, femininen Kollektion eines Designers, den man im Auge behalten muss.
