The Fall/Winter season of 2015-2016 looks promising through the bold, glamorous and romantic fashion trends of designers such as Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Louis Vuitton, Alexandra Wang, etc. The runway exposed jaw-dropping haute couture and precious garments, some easy to wear, some more intricate. Whichever the case, our eyes were captivated by the broad spectrum of colors and different impressive patterns.
Statement shoes are announcing the comeback of sexy stilettos, knee-high lace-up boots and furry shoes through the collections of Alexander McQueen, Sophia Webster, Miu Miu and Giambattista Valli. The handbag trends of Fall-Winter 2015/2016 season are furry, lunchbox or squared bags, etc. Geometric shapes, glitter, fringes, chains and tiles are also popular, along with the long-lasting trend of envelope/folded or over the shoulder bags! Remember to check Salvatore Ferragamo, Elie Saab, Rimone Rocha and Marc Jacobs!
Accessorize is the magic word! Ear cuffs, statement necklaces and funky headpieces are just several of the many available jewelry trends available for the cold season. The impressive handwork and the use of crystals, chains, bold characters, etc. ensure a large variety of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, hairpins, bands and cuffs. Moreover, belts and scarves are also used in accessorizing, meant to accentuate our eyes, waist, and cleavage or a splash of color to our look. Guy Laroche, Balenciaga, Rochas, Marni, Fausto Puglisi are only a few of the designers who created these accessory trends worth remembering.
Lingerie can often flatter us more than others, as it gives us more confidence, making us feel good in our bodies. Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Louis Vuitton, etc. reminded us how lingerie can be both practical and glamorous. Sophisticated, lacy lingerie made us fall in love with the many collections that inspired in us femininity and splendor.
Other memorable trends we have spot on the catwalks of Milan, Paris and New York are big, classy and statement capes, furry details as seen in the collections of Ralph Lauren and Celine, garments embellished with fun textures, different motifs and fabrics, snakeskin or reptile handbags, knitwear, wooly and cozy sweater scarves. Last but not least, we must mention Wes Anderson, who has been an immense influence on designers through his great movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel.
