This is a carryover from the London and New York runways, which makes it official that a rainbow sampling of leather in an array of colours will be must-have next fall. Bottega Veneta went for classic leather trench came in vibrant orange, while Alberta Ferretti Alberta packed a punch with bright red aviator and paper waist trousers.
Fringe skirts, jackets and dresses and accessories were all over the runways, a fun trend that serves its purpose when you are in movement. At Prada, the opening look was fringe skirt under a bold shouldered blazer. At Jil Sander, it was pure and minimal elegance in long fringed dresses, while Bottega Veneta’s fringed shearlings are poised to become the next street style fashion statement.
Flares, fringes and Jane Birkin inspiration, 70s nostalgia was in full swing at the Milan runways. Etro was an honoured the 70s, with an Argentinian Gaucho feel, offering ruffly, floaty dresses in paisley prints, and fringy accessories. Meanwhile, Tod’s features wide corduroy boho trousers. Among Gucci’s usual magpie aesthetics, several looks stood out for their 7os flair, like a Velvet embroidered top over full ripped denim worn with a bandana.
Sure, there are dark days ahead, but that doesn’t mean your clothes have to adopt the classic blacks and greys of fall. Pastels are a great way to inject some colour into fall outfits. Jeremy Scott drew from the opulence Marie-Antoinette and travelled to the candy colours of Tokyo, while Bottega Veneta offered oversized pink plush coat and Fendi it was all about baby pink frocks
