And then it was the turn of Milan; the third leg in a most fashionable AW15 tour. We take a peek at some of the trend highlights from Italy’s most important designers.
This trend takes its inspiration from the Victorian era. With high neck ruffles and leg of mutton sleeves, the look is both prim and modern.
Tops are layered long over loose trousers and maxi skirts. Lengthen your body-line and experiment with your proportions.
Like wearing slippers all day long… sounds good to us.
Feminine neck ties – the answer to lady-like elegance. So button-up and tie yourself in bows for autumn.
Teddy bear chic. Fur is no longer restricted to outerwear. We saw fur trims, hems, arms and bags – anything goes when it comes to fur for AW15.
An off-beat addition to the catwalks for AW15.
The culotte has been replaced by the ankle grazer trouser. Cropped is the length of choice even in the colder months.
The biggest story for next season? The roll neck. The funnel neck. The polo neck. The turtle neck. This old classic has just become the new must-have monopolising the catwalks.
Tartans, gingham and checks are a regular in the winter season – and this season is no different. Channel the Queen of tartan, Vivienne Westwood, and go big on checks.
The 70’s have been making a reappearance and are now looking stronger than ever. Bring out your inner hippy and look out for boho chic, loose silhouettes, suede, roll necks, 70’s prints and square sunglasses.
A multitude of layers make this trend winter appropriate. Use clever layering of pieces, texture and colour to give a look your own unique stamp.
Inject some colour into your winter wardrobe with a pop of faux fur. Oversize, longer length and stripes get the thumbs up from the fashion pack.
Florals are not just for summer as winter blossoms with distinctive and colourful motifs and embellishment.
The smart girls cover up of choice. Ultra wearable, capes, cloaks and ponchos were a unanimous favourite on the catwalk; from a wizards cape at Pucci to the knitted poncho at Philosophy this is one trend you should buy into.
Fashion has a fringe moment. Tasseled hemlines, trims and boots danced down the catwalk – it’s playful and flirty. Time to get your swing on.
This is one trend that we are happy to wear – the quilted coat. Choose from the oversize puffa sleeping-bag style to the skinnier 90’s version aka Armani.
Fashion come over all little red riding hood in Milan. Face framing & ear warming this is functional style at its best.
The scarf – always a winter staple and yet we’ve never seen it so stylish. The chunky knitted scarf is cosy and oversize for AW15.
Clash your textures – in fact, the more texture the better! Fashion gets fluffy, fuzzy and feathery on the catwalk.
Not a usual for the colder months, pastels take a wintery turn on the catwalk. Shades of sugary pink, mint green and duck egg blue will be a big hit in the next season.
