Athletic trends are constantly evolving, and many designers have focused upon a high-fashion instillation recently. Miu Miu and Fendi have taken the lead, and they’ve provided a wealth of blue, red and black palettes for sport enthusiasts. Where comfort and flexibility are concerned—the style wins the race. Dynamic attribution and a cool disposition underline this trend, and it’ll likely define the runway in upcoming years.
Don’t be intimidated: This fashion style has been a Valentino special, and it’s been witnessed across Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry, too. The oncoming cape style defines bravery and eloquence behind a mysterious pearl embroidery. Featuring delicate designs, a scarlet coloration and a paired-up fur hood, many seasonal fashion capes have complimented the current fantastical resurgence. Providing an alluring texture, a divine cocoon and complete comfort, the cape will likely stand its ground throughout the season and across the holidays.
A slight departure from summertime’s warmth of day, ready-to-wear apparel featuring ostrich feather textures and light plumage define the cold seasons. Soft, delicate and light, the style catches the wearer’s silhouette, refining their elegance while delivering a darker disposition. This stylization balances beauty with darkness, and it’s becoming a well-traveled trend as the season opens.
Sensuality isn’t exclusive, and the Velvet Night trend has offered an exotic approach to classical motifs. Silky, shimmering velvet has never been a Fall or Winter inclusion, but its pajama-style suit cut has been well-instilled since the sixties. Offering a wonderfully androgynous feel, a runway-fluid fitting and a seductive embrace, the Velvet Night style exemplifies curves and withholds much from onlookers. The fabric creates a soft, midnight halo, catching light well while exemplifying the feminine mystique.
Military-garb needn’t be restrictive, and it needn’t adhere to tight-laced appearances. This autumn has experienced a variety of military khaki attire—each providing a dominating color across a composed design. This hallmark has been perfected to capture the attention of critics while simultaneously spurring an in-depth accommodation for strictness. The grand design tops itself off with a rigorous coloration, spanning from dulcet camouflage to thick sand.
Tailoring isn’t normally a fashion-defining aspect, but this Fall and Winter will likely see a significant increase in tighter, form-fitting tailoring. The runway has been dominated by “boyfriend-taken” clothing groups and ensembles. This trend has been enriched through a collection of classic-cut suits provided by Ralph Lauren and Haider Ackerman—supplying this season with a slick, well-fitted approach. Where the future is considered, these suits will likely mesh well with spring, and will go well at post-dinner parties.
Winter promotes indoor activities, and parties based upon fundamental interior design characteristics have defined this season’s interior party-wear. Gold has taken the center stage—and its feature rush across seasonal party dresses has been seen at Dolce & Gabbana, Rodarte and Carven. For Fall and Winter 2014 runways, the precious metal’s pristine coloration is striking. Prepare the spotlights.
