Fall trends preview // 14.15

trends+

Chiar daca saptamanile modei sunt inca in desfasurare, nu ma pot abtine sa nu fac o scurta trecere in revista a trendurilor si a tendintelor care mi-au atras atentia pana acum. Asa ca mai jos gasesti un scurt raport al tendintelor pentru sezonul toamna-iarna 2015   //

While the fashion weeks are still unfolding right now as we speak, I couldn’t help myself making a brief review of the trends and tendencies I have noticed so far. So, here is a quick report on the trends that caught my eye in the past few weeks.

knits

Confort la superlativ si haine in care, nu numai ca arati, dar, mai ales, te simti bine. Ce altceva iti mai poti dori pentru o iarna ca in povesti? Sezonul ce urmeaza vorbeste despre haine cu atitudine, care in plus iti rasfata simturile prin texturile calde, specifice tricotajelor. Imi place look-ul crosetat, din cap pana in picioare. Il gasim la Chanel, Hermes, Marc Jacobs,  Yohji Yamamoto si multi altii. Kenzo aduce o perspectiva curajoasa si combina piese masive din tricotaj cu aplicatii metalice si luciri metalizate. Nu-i asa ca arata bine?

Feelings of comfort, smoothness and warmth on your skin. What more can you wish for a delightful winter? This season is all about about being comfy and fashionable at the same time! I love the knitted pieces, from head to toe. Spoted at Chanel, Hermes, Marc Jacobs, Yohji Yamamoto and more. Kenzo takes it all to another level, combining chunky knit fibres with gloss and glitter. How cool is that? 🙂

sportswear

Un alt trend puternic, care a inceput sa se contureze inca de anul trecut, este cel al influentelor sport. Fie ca te rezumi la cateva accente, alegand o jacheta oversize sau o parka, sau fie ca alegi un look atletic din cap pana in picioare, inspirat din diverse scene (tennis, jogging,etc), nu uita ca granita dintre casual si sport este din ce in ce mai greu de definit. Nu doar siluetele, dar si materialele precum polarul sunt importate in zona fashion. Anul ce urmeaza, vorbim despre miscare si relaxare! Iar stilul nostru de viata sanatos, dinamic si cat se poate de constient se reflecta in felul in care ne imbracam.

Another massive trend, which  began to develop since last year, is the sportswear influence seen all over. Weather we’re resuming it all to some parkas and oversized jackets with sporty influences, or weather we go sporty from head to toe, with inspiration from different scenes (tennis, jogging, etc), the border between casual and sport seems to melt more and more.  Not only the silhouettes, but also the materials, like polar wool, are  being imported into the fashion scene. This year, we talk about fun and leisure! And our healthy, dynamic and aware lifestyle is reflected in the relaxed way we dress.

metallic sheen

Da, totul straluceste peste tot! Imi plac accentele metalice aplicate pe materiale asa de variate si in combinatii asa de inspirate! Poti opta pentru un look metalic total, ca in prezentarea Mary Katranzou, Vladimir Yudashkin sau Iris van Herpen, sau poti alege o combinatie cat se poate de actuala, precum cea propusa de Veronique Branquihuino: fusta fluida, cu textura lucioasa, alaturi de un sweater pufos. In orice caz, sclipirile si stralucirile sunt pe val sezonul ce urmeaza!

Yes, everything is glowing everywhere!I love the shinny accents on top of so many different materials and in so many inspired combinations. You can go metallic all the way, like Mary Katranzou, Vladimir Yudashkin or Iris van Herpen proposed, or make the so-in combination of shiny skirt and chunky woollen sweaters, as seen at Veronique Branquihuino. Either way, the shine and sparkle is the way to go this coming season!

rich texture

Indiferent de stil sau preferinte, tine cont de un trend cu impact major in ultimele sezoane, care sa manifesta in continuare: focusul pe textura! Cata vreme culoarea a pierdut teren in ultimul timp, sau cel putin importanta i-a fost redusa semnificativ (si aici ma refer la duetul alb-negru care populeaza podiumurile), textura e vedeta! Asa ca daca vrei sa fii pe val, tine minte: investeste in texturi bogate, interesante, si nu vei da gres! Uita de regulile invatate pana acum si indrazneste sa faci combinatii puternice ale unor materiale uni, care cuceresc insa prin aplicatii 3D sau patternuri in relief.

No matter your style and preferences, there is one big trend ascending in the past few years, that has made a huge impact in this season as well: the focus on texture! While colour has lost ground in the last seasons, or gained a minimalist importance as seen in the black and white creations, the texture is the star right now! So if you want to keep it up and keep it fashion, mind this: invest in rich, beautiful textures and you will definitely not fail! Forget the rules you learned so far and make bold combinations of plain materials with interesting textures and  floral or geometric patterns. You might as well hit the score!

patchwork 456

Continuand pe aceeasi idee, combinatiile jucause de tot felul sunt apreciate! Un outfit cu aspect patchwork, sau unul care stratifica diferite culori si texturi sunt asii castigatori ai sezonului. Nu-ti fie frica sa combini mai multe piese intr-unul singur, tinand cont de acelasi sfat: texturile bogate se inteleg bine cu printuri sau bijuterii aplicate direct pe material, chiar daca vei avea o senzatie ciudata la inceput. Poti incepe prin a alege o tema generala sau  o culoare de baza, pentru a pastra unitatea compozitiei. Orice ai alege insa, nu uita sa te simti bine  facand asta in joaca, cu inspiratia la purtator!

Taking it a step further, crazy combination of all kinds are in the spotlight! Interesting patchwork looks, combing layers of different textures and colours, are one of the power-looks this season. Don’t be afraid to dare and merge different pieces into one, following the same previous advice: rich, heavy textures go along with prints or jewellery applied on materials, even if it may feel strange in the beginning. You can start by choosing a theme or a color to relate to, so that you keep the unity of the composition. Whatever you choose, don’t forget to enjoy your play!

ombre colors copy

Chiar daca sezonul ce urmeaza nu pune neaparat accentul pe culoare, in mod sigur aduce o noua perspectiva asupra lor! De exemplu, pastelurile sunt la mare cautare si aduc feminitate creatiilor minimaliste cu aer retro. Apoi, te poti delecta cu o cascada de nuante, cum sunt cele propuse de paletele ombre, ceea ce face ca aspectul tau final sa fie unul fluid. Dinamic si feminin, degrade-ul arata impecabil pe aproape orice piesa. Inspira-te din prezentarile Elie Saab, Marc Jacobs and Alberta Ferreti.

This season may be not all about the colors, but it surely brings a different approach on them! For example, pastels are scoring high, bringing light and femininity to minimalistic creations this winter. Then, you have the deep and suave tones of ombre combination, that makes it all  flow! This amazingly color scheme is both dynamic and feminine, and looks great on almost anything. Get inspiration from Elie Saab, Marc Jacobs and Alberta Ferreti.

round shaped shoulders++

Nu in ultimul rand, hai sa vorbim si despre forma. Liniile rotunde sunt vedetele sezonului, deci putem apreica o adevarata schimbare de croi si volumetrie, sustinuta de ultimele sezoane. Poti alege din modelele cu aer retro, umerii rotunjiti, manecile raglan sau capele sunt printre cele mai cautate croieli pentru toamna ce urmeaza. Daca nu ai facut-o inca, investeste intr-o piesa feminina, cu taieturi pe rotund si bucura-te de confortul cu care vin la pachet.

Last but not least, let’s talk about shape. The round shape is really trending, as seen in the major change about volumes of the last years. Yes, the round-shaped shoulders, raglan sleeves and capes are the lead in terms of shape and form. If you haven’t already, invest in one of this beautiful feminine pieces and enjoy the comfort of the curves covering your shoulders.
