The summer still isn’t fully underway, but after a couple of months in flip flops and shorts, it’s high time for something new in our wardrobes. Have we got your attention? Here are the first pre-fall trends:
Mix it up
Material and pattern combos are the order of the day for several designers. Miu Miu is banking on austere patent leather combined with fluffy wool complete with floral or check patterns. At Bottega Veneta cotton skirts are adorned with sequins and Louis Vuitton is pairing chunky knits with delicate blouses.
Leather is a classic and it’s essential in autumn. Whether as eye-catching over-the-knee boots as at Louis Vuitton or in a pastel all-over look as at Bottega Veneta. Or go for something a little more risqué with a sexy leather corset from the Alexander McQueen collection.
Animal prints are not to be missed this coming season. Leopard is a must-have, but zebra – worn as a coat at Alexander McQueen – also makes quite the fashion statement. For men, colour is all the rage – red, for example. And don’t leave the house without a belt bag. Go to Bottega Veneta to find out just how great they can look.
