Trend Forecasting For SS16 By Holly Soame
The Luxury Channel brings you our list of the super six style trends to look out for on the London catwalks….
1) Masculine Meets Feminine
The SS16 lines shown at New York Fashion Week are forecast to appear again in London. Chances are, we’ll see the men’s suit jacket being used again as a woman’s oversized jacket, something DKNY have shown to be the “battle of wall street.”
2) Seventies Style
It’s happened again, as a repeat of 2011 – 70s style is back! Everything from mixed prints to embellished flared trousers, as seen for SS16 at Rodarte.
Yes, raffia clothing has arrived. No longer is it going to be just on our beach bags, but predictions for London Fashion Week and sightings at NYFW have confirmed that raffia is here, and in particular to be used in work ready-to-wear clothing. Look to Edun for inspiration.
It’s now been made acceptable to wear your loungewear out, with the robe coat becoming very much a thing. Seen at Public School, the silk robe will most definitely be a staple of SS16.
We’ve had front-cut dresses, back-cut dresses and even slashed tops, but now a new era of top is here. The cut-out top leaves your shoulders bare with the rest of your arm and chest covered. As seen at Proenza Schouler, this is set to be a sell-out for SS16.
Every summer season, tie-dye tries to make a come-back, but in SS16, thanks to Thakoon, it is set to be a success. Silk tie-dye in particular is set to make an appearance at London Fashion Week this year.
