It’s crazy to think that we’re already looking to trends for next fall when winter is just starting up, but that’s how the fashion industry works. While winter white may be a trend this year, it seems to be drastically changing come fall 2016, based on the designers’ looks we saw.
Over at Jason Wu we saw sophistication on the wild side with mixed media and a few pastels. MM6 gave us a rocker grunge girl we wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley. But she had some flare to her with color and patent leather shine. The looks at Burberry were quite different with clean lines and a lot of outerwear. But they kept things classic by ringing true to British style.
We know it’s a busy time of year so 303 Magazine is helping out by showing you the top 3 shows that dominated the runway.
Jason Wu has always been a staple to the 5th Avenue girl – someone who’s preppy and loves quality, but doesn’t want to dress like her mother or girlfriends. She likes to keep things cool while still looking regal and sophisticated. Wu’s latest pre-fall collection will only make his customers fall more in love with him.
Wu offered up a muted collection of grays, pastels and earth tones. A wide leg pant full of different colored patches added dimension and visual interest with a coat to match. This look was paired with a cheetah-like printed blouse, making for a striking and bold ensemble.
We also loved his “Scream Queen” style dresses we’d love to see Chanel #1 wear. Pastel blue with an asymmetrical hem and mandarin collar brought this look into the 21st century. And lastly we’re loving the red bag for next fall, especially against stark grays.
For all you grunge lovers the design team over at MM6 really brought it to the table with this collection full of leather and buffalo plaid. The first look consisted of a sporty black bomber jacket with white racing stripes. Hitting just above the knee, it was paired with thigh-high boots for some sex appeal. But what we’re really loving are the buffalo plaid looks adding not only pattern and texture to these looks, but also color.
Blues and reds seamed to be the color of choice for fall 2016. A red turtleneck had a black and white buffalo paid vest thrown over it for a trendy look we can’t wait to try. A patient leather midi skirt topped off the look, giving some femininity to it overall. An oversized light tan wool suit ended the collection. A large jacket with a drop shoulder was paired with a matching pant really giving this overall image some power.
A name many fashion lovers are familiar with, Burberry seamed to take it back to its classic look this pre-fall 2016 season. The show started strong with a Burberry staple, the tan trench coat. But this particular piece was a modern caplet complete with a fur collar. The draping of the coat read as classic with an easy navy outfit put underneath. Burberry really kept the theme of good outwear strong showing coats, ponchos, cropped jackets and trenches.
Another look we loved was a coat in ’70s suede. The deep chocolate brown was broken up with a thick belt that also defined the waist under a double breasted look. Outerwear aside, the rest of the ensembles presented were easy going yet chic. A white textured dolmen sleeved T-shirt was paired back to high-waisted skinnies. But the details in this look really brought it together. A red stripe down the leg added a much needed boost of color while nautical-like buttons added some shine.
