AW14: THE TRENDS

It is finally the time to think (and shop) new season! Read on to discover our definitive guide to the key trends for Autumn/Winter 2014.


NINETIES NOSTALGIA


Each season has its signature decade and the nineties are definitely trending for Autumn/Winter 2014. Heavily branded pieces, statement prints and tongue-in-cheek graphics from brands including Moschino, Versus Versace and Kenzo hark back to a time when we were proud to be loud. Tap into the trend in a more subtle way by opting for a logo emblazoned bag, belt or oversized bomber jacket to pair with your existing wardrobe.


SIXTIES MOD


Welcome figure flattering shifts, high hemlines, bold prints and pretty pastels into your wardrobe as the swinging sixties gets a contemporary twist from designers including Matthew Williamson and Valentino. Gucci looked to Jean Shrimpton for inspiration; their more polished take on the trend showcased structured A-line dresses finished in sleek leather, double breasted coats, luxe polonecks and knee high shiny boots.


WILD THING


The timeless choice of print makes another comeback for the new season in show-stealing leopard, tiger, snake and cheetah styles on A-line mini dresses and super-chic overcoats. Just Cavalli, Gucci and Michael Michael Kors displayed a striking array of prints ranging from snow leopard to vibrant leopard prints and tantalising reptilian patterns. Appearing on coats, dresses, shoes and accessories, opt for one statement piece that will revitalise your wardrobe.


PRIMARY PALETTE


Whilst pastels have reigned supreme in recent seasons, Autumn/Winter 2014 welcomes bold block colours, predominantly focusing on classic primary hues. Red and yellow were stand-out shades for the likes of Moschino and Casadei whilst vibrant cobalt was the shade of the season at Roland Mouret, Giuseppe Zanotti and Helmut Lang. Wear head to toe for maximum impact.
