Autumn in the capital is as punctual as never before, so it’s time to revise your wardrobe and add the missing items to the wish list. Designers unanimously declare that all variations on the theme of power dressing are in trend, but always with the proviso of femininity and emphasized seduction. We have collected the key trends of the season that will be easy to experiment with in any weather – let’s take it together!
The first (and most important) purchase of the year is a colored coat or trench coat. We calculated this immodest hint from the Off-White and Salvatore Ferragamo collections. Raf Simons conceived complex color combinations for Prada, the verdict of which is unambiguous – repeat.
In general, juicy, as if electrified shades have captured the palette of autumn. With cobalt blue, fuchsia, and hot pepper, the seasonal blues won’t stand a chance. Take the risk of looking closely at the bright outerwear, and at the same time – at the trouser suit, with which it is as easy as possible to create a monochrome look.
Chain mails in the spirit of Paco Rabanne classics do not lose their relevance, but, on the contrary, expand their zones of influence. This time, the glitter of precious metals filled the podium, and many decided to invest in gold. Burberry has trench coats that shimmer like bars, and Alberta Ferretti has disco pants, which Beyoncé has already tried on.
Knitwear needs no introduction, but it’s definitely worth stocking up on them. Acne Studios unveiled super comfy sets of cardigans and shorts, mixed with brutal boots. Chloé has a whole line of striped maxi dresses to fit the figure, paired with closely related shoes and bags.
The heroine of the new autumn season is militant. Riccardo Tisci (creative director of Burberry) proposed to boldly go out to meet the capricious weather in pea coats of all stripes, and Maria Grazia Chiuri (Dior) presented highly fashionable leather armor. Dion Lee’s collection features ultra-daring variations on the harness theme, while Isabel Marant has hyper-volume bombers borrowed from the US Air Force pilots.
High boots with cocktail dresses
If you need to run to a party, and it is cold outside the window, you should not sacrifice comfort and freeze for the sake of beauty. The designers have thought of everything here. Virginie Viard, for example, has brought true functionality to the decorous Chanel classics. Now, instead of slingbacks, fur boots rhyme on graceful stilettos with shiny dresses.
For which team to play – choose yourself. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, for example, were seriously interested in baseball and presented perhaps the most seductive uniform – with a corset and giant shoulders. And the Gucci collection is a real bet on equestrian sports – with breeches and hats inspired by jockeys’ helmets.
There was (and will be) a lot of furs this season, but mostly in the eco format. From outerwear, he migrated to shoes (high fur boots – out of competition) and accessories. Wear giant fur tote bags like the Fendi and Off-White runways.
Patchwork is again on the wave of popularity: if the feelings of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for patchwork have cooled, then at Etro and Chloé they flashed with renewed vigor. Minimum program – accessories led by textile shoppers, maximum program – coat or bomber.
