Precious Gems

Precious Gems

The move this season is not away from colour, but rather towards deeper hues. The Precious Gems trend is based on multifaceted gem tones, and generates a feeling of warmth and comfort using a colour palette of enriched browns, golden yellows, rusty oranges, cobalt blues and fiery reds. These rich jewel hues can be found across outerwear, dresses, separates, suiting, and accessories for AW18.

Key brands channelling this rich trend include Essentiel Antwerp, Goat, Hugo, Marella, Max & Co, MICHEAL Michael Kors, Caractere, and Tara Jarmon.

Town and Country

Town and Country

This season’s heritage trend focuses on fall-friendly traditional fabrics – from tartans, to tweeds to herringbone checks. Blazers are key in this modern yet sophisticated trend, which also lends an easy-to-wear, trans-seasonal look to a mix of suiting, dresses, outerwear, and relaxed weekend looks. Richly-textured tweed and tartan accessories in colours like deep rust and navy blue add accents to the trend. Here we also see micro influences nodding to utility, with materials including cord and military-inspired hardware.

Continuing on with the romantic mood for that set the tone for SS18, florals remain a key pattern for the new season. Winter Garden is the embodiment of autumnal florals. Ditsy prints make way for larger-scale blooms, set against a background of rich, dark colours. Foliage and abstract florals are an inspiration for prints across dresses, separates, scarves and handbags this season.
