A catwalk full of contrasts, this is how you could define the fashion that comes for the next fall-winter season. Suit jacket with masculine air, great oversize coats, fluid fabrics, neutral colors and bright prints. An eclectic mix and with many influences. We summarize now the keys in terms of fabrics and silhouettes.
Suit jacket in the purest style gentle-woman
Suit jacket with skirt or pants have become a must for next autumn-winter. The winning combination is a large blazer with pants, but not necessarily. With skirt, with transparencies in the garment, with touches of color, with tweed fabrics, velvet, satin, printed or different colors. The variations are infinite as long as it is a male-style two-pieces suit.
Who said cold?
Long coats to the feet, puffer jackets, with hair … all designed following the oversize dynamics and male-style and designed not to be cold during the winter. Coats, long and mostly with straight lines, combine in tones with the undergarments or become the center of attention with fun motifs and prints.
Puffer jackets also join monochromatic looks. Long, short, sleeveless, they give volume to the outfits and keep us warm, just like the garments with hair, very in trendy this season.
The great variety of fabrics that stand out in this winter season have in common their strength and their density. Leather and tweed are undisputed stars along with furs and hair. In the first one, Balmain based his collection, which plays with the different tonalities, prints and cuts creating a silhouette that is outlined with remnants. Although he was not the only one, both in black and brown, leather has been a constant on the autumn-winter catwalk and could be seen in dresses, warm clothes, skirts, trousers … a myriad of possibilities!
Chanel also opted for this material for the designs, although the star of the fashion show was a thick tweed in gray tone, which along with the tartan were seen mostly in blazers and two-piece suits.
An interesting mix is the one presented by the designers when combining this type of winter fabrics with summer fabrics like silk. In this way, on dresses, skirts and flare pants, they have tops and jackets in leather, tweed or hair. A visually attractive contrast that allows you to take advantage of the garments of the previous season.
Denim, velvet and metallic and shiny fabrics have also been very present. The denim fabric returns and returns to the style of the 90’s, in full suits and jackets and wide pants. While velvet has reborn and seems that it does not want to leave yet. Examples from the Christian Dior long dress to the jacket and pant suit (vest included) in green by Dolce & Gabbana or accessory details such as Gucci, who combines a color belt with a printed dress.
Metallic and glossy fabrics give the outfits a striking and futuristic touch. They are obtained with sequins or satin fabrics and are used in all types of garments and with all kinds of shades and prints.
From spring-summer to autumn-winter: transparencies and cut-out shoulders
Some of the trends of this summer are repeated and continue during the fall-winter season. It stands out the use of transparencies in the collection of Emporio Armani, who dares with trousers in an impermeable material that resembles the classic raincoats.
Meanwhile, dresses and off shoulders blouses are still present, now in long sleeves and perfect to combine with the myriad of warm clothes in trend.
A retro touch
The preferred cut for the skirts is mid-leg and the silhouette is notched with a front or side opening. Although pleated skirts have also been seen in different shades. Carolina Herrera combines it with a top with transparencies in a monochrome look.
The midi skirts add a vintage touch that is accentuated by the fringes. In dresses, jerseys, skirts, accessories … and in any type of fabric, even the leather. They bring movement to the typical winter clothes of more dense lines.
Timeless fabrics and silhouettes designed for the cold season that will fill the closets of the trendiest people during the next months.
