TRENDS REPORT: Autumn/Winter 2013

October 10, 2013

PUNK: All the big names were pushing the trend for this winter; at Saint Laurent it was all about the Kurt Cobain grunge look, at Versace it was sexed up and at Chanel thigh high boots with chains and punk embellishment gave a ladylike nod to the theme.

THE FEMININE SILHOUETTE: nipped in waists and midi skirts were all over the catwalks for winter, with coat dresses at Christian Dior, skirt suits at Prada and belted styling at Rochas; very reminiscent of the Hitchcock heroine.

RELIGION: many of the top designers took their inspiration from the church this season; at Dolce & Gabbana intricate jewel encrusted designs of Saints dominated the show, at Valentino and JW Anderson dresses were fit for cardinals.

CHECKS: houndstooth, tartan, pinstripe, Price of Wales and herringbone were all over the catwalk for fall. Lanvin draped it into an elegant skirt suit, Ungaro tailored it into a cute mini dress and Phoebe Philo reinvented the Chinese laundry bag into the must have coat of the season.
