February is always a very special month for everyone. Mainly because we can see an end to winter and of course its Valentines.
However there’s another exciting pull for London’s fashion industry this February and its going to be a hectic and exciting time for showcasing shop windows and getting a taste of how we do fashion here in London.
London Fashion Week starts right on 14 Feb, which gives us the right to talk about the love and affection of all things fashion.
For those who rather think about this Spring season rather than what we’ll be wearing for winter 2014 here are some latest trends to be considered:
SS14 Colour Wheel:
See below a summarized colour wheel showing all the main color trends demonstrated by mainstream designers for SS14:
The Tribal look
There has been huge inspiration coming from Ancient Latin American, African and European civilizations. From Alexander McQueen warrior structures to Givenchy’s tribal black; tribal theme has found its own interpretation.
Edun has brought to us a whole new twist of last year’s monochrome this SS14 expressed in quirky geometry:
Valentino’s inspiration from ancient Maya culture:
The cotton shirtdress!
Will it work for your office attire?
The business casual look is going to be filling the office this spring. Cotton shirt dresses equal suit classics with a sexy twist. If you can, The PJ trouser suits are still being worn (as seen at the end of Winter collections) this maybe too casual for your office however a fabulous chic look for a lunch or cocktail party. ‘Glam up’ the shirtdress or the PJ trouser suit with multiple strings of pearls.
Alexander Wang SS14:
Sporting glam is one of the mainstream trends of SS14. Fine silk fabrics and soft leathers are being used by designers in order to create chic sporty looks and should definitely be combined with stilettos, not sneakers!
Floral V Pop-Art
The SS14 floral designs significantly differ from AW13 floral bloom. The floral prints were inspired by 1960 pop-art abstractions, which were seen a lot in Christopher Kane’s collection. Black is seen a lot as background to the floral’s giving them a sensual look. Very Dolce & Gabbana!
Rochas, Francesco Scognamiglio, Moschino and the others used some very feminine couture floral applications.
Dolce & Gabbana
White tulle is the new white
White as a colour of serenity and meditation is on the throne as usual this season and certainly will be going through into Summer. The designs are sleek and simple. Rochas, Blumarine, Sass & Bide, Balenciaga and some others compliment the clothing with a lot of tulle and some lace details. As well as voiles and mixtures of fabrics.
Trends change every season, however this doesn’t mean your style has to change. Once you’re happy with your image it’s good to tweak it with each new season. Adding new colours will give you an immediate updated and newly inspired wardrobe.
