So what's new this season? Padding, protective lines and cosy knits came together on the catwalks, perhaps as a shelter from the doom and gloom of a world in crisis. But if trends are truly heading for more and more comfort, fashion is retaining its sense of fun, its color and glamour, always with an sense of determination and self-assuredness. In short, this season it's all about celebrating the individuality of style through the multitude of trends waiting to be worn.
Seen at so many shows this season, silver flirted with the conceptual, creating hybrids with padding and pleats, and providing a modern twist on classic quilted jackets which were posed simply on the shoulders.
Mixing, juxtaposing and stitching together what may first seem at odds, this season, the designers quenched their thirst for folk, mixing and matching unexpected pairings of prints, materials and tones.
A flurry of feathers for a touch of couture, the common denominator at Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and Sonia Rykiel. White only, and soft, stylish and poised.
Heading to the top of the trends list this season are total denim looks à la Brooke Schield circa 1984, ultra luxury and impeccably tailored for maximum everyday elegance.
It's knitting but not as your grandmother knows it. A modern twist on the cosy classic where wool is broken down and reinterpreted in new and poetic ways, dabbling with fringing, sometimes stretched out or infused with a touch of Hygge, the Danish craze for comfort.
