SS ’20: For the Love of All Things Victorian #TrendAlert

Spring Summer 2020 has a new take on prints! With vintage prints and Victorian wallpaper, there’s a new inspiration in tow! After the black and white shades and head-to-toe outfits, the ramps were moving towards a new inspiration. With one eye on the Victorian past and the other on modern silhouettes, this trend combines the two worlds in perfect harmony. And that too, with an all-over print! Taking a refined and romantic front from the Victorian wallpapers, this trend reminds us of the days gone by. Reimagining the drawing-room personality combined with floor-sweeping hemlines, it’s a love affair to follow. Vintage Designs, Modern Silhouettes Reimagining prints this season, it was about the flora touch to silhouettes of the new. In a repetitive pattern that could be seen on the Victorian wallpapers, designers had a fresh take to showcase. While Erdem created waist-less gowns and all-over-print, Simone Rocha’s took a tablecloth…

SS ’20: Which Colour Do You Block? #Trendalert

Spring Summer 2020 is bringing a lot of vibrant shades with this new trend. With lively colours and complementary shades, it’s the new colour way to take! With bright blocks of colour, the ramps were totally lit with the 70s colour-blocking trend. This trend is known to have originated from the artwork of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian. Creating geometric structures with contrasting shades, it was a colourful affair. This style was incorporated by Yves Saint Laurent, that included both complementary shades and colour-blocking. And by the time 1960s struck, colour-blocking became a way of expression. With bright and bold colour combinations, it was the new style wave that took over. Hues to Drool Over Starting off the colour fest was Alice + Olivia, with their range of bold contrasting shades like no other. From pastel hues combined with radiant skirts to dresses with bows, it was a colour parade unlike…

SS ’20: The Greek Take on Drapes! #NewLaunch

Bring out the Goddess in you this Spring Summer 2020, with drapes and silhouettes like never before! With a new take on drapes, Spring-Summer 2020 added more power to femininity. The question of the season, what if women were our saviours, was resonated across all ramps and runways. Maria Grazia Chiuri deserves special mention for her Spring 2020 Couture show, that blew everyone away. And bringing the Goddesses down to Earth and walking the ramps. Morphing the ramp in a womb-like shape, Dior was all set to blaze it up. With a wall hanging that said – What If Women Ruled the World, the air called out femininity all across.  In draped metallic patterns, cut fringes, braided ropes and Roman sandals, the ramps were clearly all about the Goddesses. And we couldn’t agree more. Dreamy. Determined. Dauntless Although drapes have been a constant part of the ramps, this season the…

SS ’20: The Super Woman Edition!

Superheroes have always appealed to us since our childhood. With comics to read about, or watching Shaktimaan on TV, there was something or the other that led to a superhero. Although many of us (including some of us here) have grown up, the aspect of a superhero beating the villain, still adds on that optimistic and excitement view towards life. And why shouldn’t it? Just think about it, a spider biting a human, someone dropping out of another planet (both Superman and Wonder Woman fall in This category), give us this hope, that everything will turn out fine. And when fashion has a take on it, that has GOT to put in a lot more faith into it! With the Catsuit outfit trending on all ramps and runways, it was about women saving the world. And having the attire to dress for it. Now this literal take comes from those…

SS ’20: The Super Suit Story #TrendAlert

Calling Captain Marvel, Black Widow and Cat Woman – it’s the era of all things super heroines, and fashion has its own take on it! Spring Summer 2020 is all about saving the world and with it comes the superhero costume, the Catsuit! From knits to an activewear addition, this season gave this neck-to-toe ensemble a new meaning. With many designers taking the route of ‘Apocalypse Now’, the runways opened up with post-climatic wardrobe choices that included functional yet feminine head-to-toe clothing. Catsuits originally made an appearance in the 1940s but gained momentum during the 1970s and 1980s when it was worn for aerobics and disco dancing. Catsuits have been a part of athletics like speed skating, gymnastics and various water sports like scuba diving, since forever. This trend is also found in superhero comics and movies. From Catwoman, Black Widow, to Lara Croft and even in the Matrix – …
