Fall 2016 RTW: Fur

PETA’s influence on the fashion establishment paled this fall with the abundance of fur seen on the runway.  Animal printed furs, shearlings, mink, fox, as well as faux furries were all represented.

Trend: Men’s Bomber Jacket

Fall 2015 Menswear

The biggest trend in men’s jackets witnessed on the Fall 2015 runways was “The Bomber”.  The bomber or flight jacket has been around for almost one hundred years.  This military inspired piece of wardrobe continues to be reinterpreted in many shapes and fabrics.  The knit cuffs and waistbands are a common thread but the silhouette can be seen short to long.  Fabrications are the real differentiator here.  Bombers were seen in fur, satin, knit, camouflage, plaids, leather, velvet, pinstripes, quilted, prints, metallic, sequins, nylon, and wool.  It’s a classic mens wardrobe piece that these thirty-six designers continue to design for the 21st century.

Trend: Sheer Banding

Spring 2015 RTW

Sheer banding on dresses was seen on several runway catwalks.  Sometimes used with tulle to create a striped effect but also cut out to reveal skin.

Trend: White Dress

Spring 2015 RTW

The little white dress is the antithesis of the little black one but seen here makes for a refreshing alternative staple in a woman’s wardrobe.   Lacey frills and sheer details make them soft and seductive.

Trend: Long Noir

Spring 2015 RTW

Long black dresses didn’t take gothic inspiration but rather a sexy subversive view point. These noir looks used tulle, lace, and embellishment to discreetly hide and reveal the form.

Trend: Garden Girls

Spring 2015 RTW

These garden nymph looks graced the catwalk with an ethereal wonder.  Tulle, lace, and floral embellishments made a romantic narrative with these long silhouettes conjuring the rites of spring.
