A global pandemic that has disrupted the lives of many, has had a major influence on the Fall-Winter fashion trends of 2020.
Nevertheless, this pandemic hasn’t stopped these designers to be creative with their Fall-Winter collections. Textiles in bright, effulgent colours and whimsical touches like bows and tulles are seen defining the current fashion landscape. Fashion has fancied itself to be a position ray of sunshine in grim times like these.
Let us take you through some of these trends to (hopefully) brighten up your day as well as your wardrobe.
The tasselled trim has been elevated to celebrity status this season. Once a mainstay in the domain of the bohemians, today's car wash fringe is ruling the runway with Bottega Veneta, Oscar de la Renta leading the pack. Designers and street style’s elite are raising the ante, showing how the casual trend can be transformed with meticulous care and detail.
Tradition meets modernity in this season’s runway looks. The well-loved granny knitwear has become playfully subverted with wild prints, exaggerated proportions and eccentric sleeves, imbuing it with a fresh lease of life.
Leather looks set to dominate the fall/winter runway this season. In a bold and assertive move, fashion houses are taking leather to the next level with full head to toe looks. There is nothing modest about this alluring and provocative trend.
Black is Back
The ubiquity of the colour in the wardrobe of many, has proven time and again that black has never truly fallen out of favour. From that gargantuan face-obscuring hat at Givenchy to the dramatic ruffled collar at Schiaparelli, the colour of the decade looks set to tease and titillate the fancies of all.
The showstopper for this season’s tailored trend is none other than the belted outerwear. Consider Chloe’s scintillating take on this trend with their adorable belted blazers. Even fashion houses like Prada, Carolina Herrera, Monse, Miu Miu, McQueen, and Michael Kors are fast jumping on the bandwagon with their own unique interpretations.
