  • Fashion Week SS16: Round Up

    October 21, 2015

    The hottest month in the Fashion Calendar has come to a close again, yes we are talking about Fashion Week: SS16. This limbo times plays havoc with our style emotions. With all the top designers showcasing a variety of must have looks we want to fast forward to the Summer and start wearing them now.

    So what is set to be hot next season? We have a look at what we will be wearing come Summer and what were the talking points of the Fashion month just past.

    Fashion-Week1

    Key Colours

    One of the biggest and most obvious things we take away from Fashion week is what colours will be dominating the SS16 collection. After the overload of Rust shades this AW15 it is nice to start thinking of a new shade to fill our wardrobes with. The new 'must have' shade will be Primrose Yellow. As demonstrated perfectly by Christopher Kane and Jonathan Saunders, their SS16 collections showcase the delicate colour palette and how it will compliment the new Summer prints. Other key colours include the return of blue spanning from aquas to grey tones and pretty pinks to compliment the new floral trend.

    Top Tailoring

    The boy meet girl trend comes around every year but SS16 is stepping up the styling by adding some volume to the current popular trend. Gentleman tailoring meets billowing silhouettes create a feminine touch to a quite structured style. Pulled in waistlines and voluptuous pleats are what to look out for next season when adding a little masculine edge to your Summer wardrobe.

    Burberry Go Social

    fashionweek3

    One of the main stories to come away from the fashion weeks was Burberry's social sneak preview. The brand took to Snapchat 24hrs before their first show and previewed the new collection to their social fans. A clever way to entice their customers ahead of the main event. With the inclusion of a social media it will interesting to see how brands try and top it next year.

    Marc Jacobs Film

    Instead of keeping it traditional, Marc Jacobs took his fans to the movies with a tale fashion. Jacobs treated a selected few to a night at the theatre with a live jazz orchestra to keep the show going. Models started from the red carpet, through the lobby and into the theatre so all spectators could view the collection. Americana styling played a big part with an array of rinestones, embroidered denim, patch detailing and flannel shirts transporting the audience to the US.

    The Return Of Florals

    There is no surprise that florals are making a comeback this SS16. The botanical favourite is taking on a new style by teaming up with romantic ruffles. The new blossoms are delivered in both a delicate variation or a round up of wild blooms to create an on point Summer style.

    Texture Overlap

    Textures are continuing to play a big part next season, overlapping from AW15. The feminine touches of the traditional SS collection has been updated with a touch of Romanticism. Otherwise known as 'Frill Fest', the designers pulled out all the stops to create a truly beautiful array of ruffles, flounces and open pleats to work as a contrast against the boy meets girl trend of SS16.
