Archive for the ‘London Fashion Week’ Category
Although spring hasn’t even arrived yet (and summer is a long way off…sigh) we’re just so excited for autumn/winter 13 already! The catwalks of London Fashion Week were full of beautiful pieces to entice us into planning autumn outfits and I’ve put together a little round up of the key colours, trends and prints that look set to be big later in the year.
Lots of collections embraced a dark romantic theme with leather panelling and high neck and waistlines. The military trend will still be around but it’s been given a clean, utility update for AW13 with khaki outerwear paired over tone-on-tone knitwear and combined with faux fur, quilting and again, leather.
Key colours for autumn/winter include winter white with the monochrome look continuing from spring into the new season. Autumnal grey, khaki and deep red hues were big on the catwalks but broken up with bright pops of colour including hot pink, winter orange and lime.
Animal print looks like it’s still going to be huge in the winter but think outside the box with snakeskin print and many more. Softer, more abstract camouflage prints replace the graphic camouflage of the spring while black and white Argyle, florals and geometrics prints also appear to reign.
Key pieces for AW13
I know it feels like a lifetime away right now but make sure you invest in a few key pieces for the autumn. We recommend a faux fur gilet, leather mini skirt or leather trousers, a cosy cocoon coat and anything animal print! For the mean time though, let’s get excited for the SUMMER!
