The A to Z Trend
Fashion style alphabet from A to Z? Why not! Let us imagine the styles that you don´t qualify under fashion colors, designs, materials or manufacturers, but by the letters of the alphabet. So "A" ...
Need to get in quickly on what will be really trendy this season? Trendy are several styles, so try from A to Z!
A as ANDROGYNY - style, where girls dress as boys and especially boys as girls. Such a style that can be currently seen in many fashion collections. Example is Dolce & Gabbana and Rick Owens, who showed men in kilts.
B is for Boozy Colours - or literally "drinking"colors, which are represented by the color of burgundy, the color of red wine or cider. We can see them in collections of Victoria Beckham, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Gucci, Celine, Marc by Marc Jacobs or Miu Miu.
C as a Colour. Colors are and always will be subjects to any current season. Michael Kors chose the classic and always perfectly looking black. Thakoon attacked with red, blue, black and yellow. The brilliant and bright colors were chosen by the brands Gucci, Alberta Ferretti, Burberry Prorsum and Lanvin.
D as Domintarix (domination), which often bordering on the fetishism, we could see at fashion shows of brands Giles, Marios Schwaab, Westwood Red Label, Viktor and Rolf and certainly this style is represented by Lady Gaga in her speech for Mugler.
Everything, all together: Mix sequins with fake fur, with tweed, with leather, with wool, with rubber, with goat hair, with mink, with fox, with plastic. I´m sure that this style will be welcomed by those of you for whom fashion is a challenge, art and expression of unconventionality.
F is for Forties elegance. Forty years are so popular in the fashion lately. We can see it in the collections by John Galliano, Gucci and Miu Miu. Wear the elegant elbow length gloves with your outfit to look chic.
G is for Gender play - literally means "the game with sex." An example of such a style can also be Andrej Pejic, a male model with a woman's face. He modelled for Jean Paul Gaultier, Ann Sofie-Back was inspired by porn and men looking at cars and lots of designers looked to boyswear for girls – Stella, Balenciaga, Balmain, Celine, Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel included, plus Emilio Pucci and Jonathan Saunders added menswear for the first time. This style is much like the style of the androgyny.
H presents a style called Homespun - the style prefers the manufacturies and coarse fibers such as corduroy and tweed. Coarse fibers, which are and will be in fashion can be viewed in the collections of the House of Holland, Christopher Kane and Rodarte.
Is She Or Isn’t She? Currently, the question was related to Kate Middleton´s wedding dress and who will create the dress. Sparrows on the roof whispering the name of Sarah Burton (and the brand Alexander McQueen). A the rumor was true - it was her!
J as John Galliano. So here we are able to wirtea lot - on the one hand, John Galliano, designer with the great D and on the other hand ... Which bowl of weights eventually will prevail, only time will tell. Meanwhile gives Dior's parent company a nice lesson to Galliano - he´s not only fired from the creative leadership of Dior women's collections, but also from the brand John Galliano, which also owned by Dior.
K as Kates: Middleton; Moss on the catwalk at Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu bringing proceedings to a close with Kate Bush.
L for Longer length skirts. This modern lenght was seen in the collection of
Dries, Chloe, Balenciaga, Roland Mouret and Antonio Marras. If you don´t want to wear mid-lenght for any reason, buy yourself a skirt in the lenght to the floor.
M is for Mary Janes - the type of footwear that has a higher heel, broad and rounded closed toe cap and a buckle placed on the instep and / or clip curving around the ankle. Such shoes we've seen at Christopher Kane, Fendi, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood
Letter N - means in the alphabet of fashion Nostalgia. The fashion world goes back in the past. So, if you want to be in, you should be certainly inspired by models of the past years, thirties, forties or sixties.
O is for going dotty for spots and circles: Marc Jacobs started it and almost everybody wanted a little of it until Stella who didn’t hold back. Who is flecked or spotted, wins.
P as a Print - a lot of them can be seen in the collections of Jonathan Saunders, Versace, Henry Holland, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney, Miu Miu, Ungaro, Givenchy, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga and Cacharel. You can admire a lot of themes - from the details of the Baroque, through photographic flowers, broken glass, to animal themes.
P but also as a Pony Tails. Pony Tails decorate models at shows of the brands Calvin Klein, Vivienne Westwood, Gucci, Just Cavalli and Louis Vuitton.
Oh, and Parkas: Matthew Williamson sequinned his.
Q is for Questions. They are the next great fashion theme. Which designer will have the honor to propose to Kate Middleton wedding dress and what will happen with Dior when Galliano left Dior? The answer to the first question we already know, time will answer to the second...
R – Royals&Revolutions. R as the Royals and R as the Revolution. Peter Pilotti and Todd Lynn were inspired by revolutions. Charles Anastase introduced us a collection of medieval princesses. The royal theme is undeniably connected to the brand Alexander McQueen, who sewed Kate Middleton´s wedding gown.
S as Skirts over trousers: Everybody’s doing it.
T for texture overload.That encourages you to combine materials that you would be afraid to combine. Risk is profit and courage is appreciated.
U for Unadulting.The prettiest we've seen at the show of Valentino, the wildest style was presented by Viktor & Rolf.
V as Victoriana - Victorian period. A lot of designers were inspired by this theme, for instance Giles, Westwood Red Label, Temperley, Mulberry, Marc Jacobs, Fendi or Just Cavalli.
W for Wixson Lindsey. She walked for Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, Rodarte, Viktor & Rolf, Prada and then got sent home for being allergic to make-up. Beware of what you use. An excess of cosmetics can be harmful.
X as "X Marks the Spot", meaning the patterns of checks and spots. And you can see in many fashion collections, for example, Marni, Missoni, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana and Comme des Garcons, but also in many others. Celine had a jumper with a big X on the front.
Y as Yellow represents the importance of yellow color. Yellow was introduced in Victoria Beckham collection and at D&G show.
And finally Z as "Zoological" - that means animals everywhere you look. For example, we could see a hawk in Hermes, cocks at Moschino, swallows at Miu Miu. Marc by Marc Jacobs came up with lions and dogs,
Topshop with Dalmatins and Givenchy with panters. Hooray to the zoo!!!:D
So what style or trend from these do you like? Would you rock all of them?
