Plastic Fantastic

Sheer Flamboyance

Spring/Summer 2018 Fashion Week saw some weird and wonderful trends, the first being plastic everything. From translucent trench coats at Anya Hindmarch to sporty minidresses at House of Holland, the trend for shiny and supple perspex pieces reigned supreme.

Wild, Wild, Western

Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie

In the words of Will Smith, “Welcome to the wild, wild West.” The boxy, double front-pocket jacket was by far one of the biggest key pieces seen across the four cities at Fashion Week. Everything from Calvin Klein’s satin version to the longline silhouette seen at Dion Lee proves that variations in size, fabric, and color all work. If you’re going to invest early in an SS18 piece, make it this.

Cold Shoulder

Dare to Bare

The off-the-shoulder neckline that has proven immensely popular for the past three seasons is taking a turn for the 80s in 2018. The asymmetric neckline was a silhouette seen in almost every show, no matter the narrative. Tory Burch and Zimmermann favored the shape on dresses, co-ords, and blouses.

Ultraviolet

The Future is Purple

When Pantone announced its 2018 Color of the Year as UltraViolet, September’s Fashion Week showcase made complete sense. Pantone’s tone is a deep, rich, purple, but a variation of tones were championed by Victoria Beckham and Tibi in New York, both of which used the color across suiting and cool separates.

Well Plaid

Pile On the Check Print

Plaid played a big part in the narratives of collections for SS18, but surprisingly, it wasn’t only portrayed in the typical grungy 90s way. Instead, the print was used on fitted pencil skirts at Hermès and grown-up tailoring at Sacai. This is an easy trend to incorporate into your current wardrobe.
