12. The sustainability was undeniably in the air, as was a desire to support inclusivity – and there was also a movement away from anything too novelty, with many brands gearing towards less ephemeral dressing versus a return to craftwork: all kind of hand-made clothes is in, in, in!
13. Embracing the ARM – the DRAMA is all in it! In Marie-Antoinette style with its thousands ways: in shoulders and on sleeves. From extra long and oversized to extreme puffy and ruffles volume-exaggerated. Sub-trend: 1940’s triangle-sharp shoulders.
14. Dolls, or Alice in wonderland touch trend, hot predicted for the season, didn’t really work in the designers shops – the idea of the dressing up like little girls doesn’t work with the face coverings we have to wear absolutely everywhere. And – a little girl – as that is what this trend is all about – doesn’t need to cover the face. But really romantic goes ruffles and girlies style, announced in the shows, didn’t work in reality this season.
15. With the season in many ways more toned darker in colour, texture and print, there was one way that designers chose to embrace drama and that was through strong silhouettes, which we saw in bulbous silhouette, bubbles on hems and puffs on sleeves.
16. When it comes to equine-inspired twist, it took a less western and more lady-like touch with the sophisticated prints and equestrian caps.
17. Leather and vinyl in a hot version of the 1990’s mood and new-gothic revival.
18. And as for colours you have to shine in silver and white gold lamé. Opt for mesh, crystals or rhinestones. Sparkle the blues away and add a bit of glitzy glamour to your autumn/winter outfit.
19. Evening cutouts: the night-out cutout came along with hip holes, and contemporary subtle openings – some designers make it work for the office – at the elbow.
