It’s not necessarily what aligns with fashion trends, but rather what has universal appeal. Most of the time, a fashion statement sets the tone for a new trend that will push designers to a new direction coming next season. Bloggers and editors such as Natalie Joos, Sussie Lau, and Anna Dello Russo, love to stir the waters through their street style combos of vintage, past season, and latest fashion finds. A statement is a strong point of view. Let’s shop items that can’t pass unnoticed!
When you mix activewear staples with romantic floral prints and retro textures, the result is full of energy and avant-gardeness. Such is the innovative spirit in the 3.1 Phillip Lim Floral Print Hooded Anorak mixing the parka style with a botanical print. Another bold item from this collection is the Floral Print Silk Organza Mini Dress !
It can be a bejeweled, beaded and sequined piece or one crafted from metallics. Lurex, metallic leather, crystals, and mirror-effect materials play with the light in a seductive way. Very few people will resist the allure of ultra-glam pieces such as the Dolce & Gabbana Embellished Wheel Wool Crepe Mini Skirt and the Alice + Olivia Katz Pleated Metallic Silk-Blend Skirt !
Boldness in mixing different materials together – traditional and tech fabrics or different effects and textures – is quite on the rise lately. Chitose Abe’s creations for Sacai are great examples. Check the Sacai V-Neck Short-Sleeve Sweater which combines knit with bandana print cotton at the back. On a more classic note, knit can mingle with expensive lace such as in the Valentino Guipure Lace Striped Dress !
Yet the most compelling part of the futuristic trends is when you blend elements from classic silhouettes to produce a new one. This is Asian designers’ forte – especially Japanese – because of a long-lasting tradition in intricate pattern-making. Yohji Yamamoto crossed pajama with blazer style to produce this stunning Floral Devoré Asymmetric Jacket. All of Sacai’s collections include hybrid styles such as this Mousseline Bandana Layered Slipdress. A fashion statement often takes our wardrobe staples to the next level!
Off Gender Lines
The discussion is not only about the so-called mannish or androgynous look, but also about looks that can be shared by people of any gender variation at any time and define style for the next generation. This timeless Yohji Yamamoto Embroidered Flowers Shirt is also genderless! And the 3.1 Phillip Lim Ribbed-Trim Satin Bomber Jacket can fit Olivia Palermo’s style but also her husband’s!
