Checks, checks and more checks is what we saw on the red carpets, runways and even on the streets! A major Autumn-Winter 2019/20 trend, checks was THE print to own – And there had to be a heart version for all the check-lovers out there! With a new take, this season checks made a comeback from the Grunge era in a remixed avatar. A special mention to Christian Dior’s collection. With Maria Grazia Chiuri taking over the checks print like no other. From plaid trousers, coats, tulle skirts to dresses and even scarves, Dior had a new muse, and we were all set to embrace it. From plaid to tartan and everything in between, many designers were bringing their versions of the plaid play. Chanel’s collection, which was an ode to Karl Lagerfeld had all the makings of a winter dress-up. With checks coats and jumpsuits in black and white,…

AW 19/20: The Bow Movement of the Season #Trendalert

This season brought us a whole lot of rebellion with women empowerment being talked about all across. And joining this talk, was our dear friend, bows, in an all new avatar. The bow has always been known to showcase femininity, romance and a ladylike feature to any woman who wore it. But this time around, Autumn-Winter 2019/20 was bringing us a whole new version of it – thanks to Donald Trump and his blatant statements on women and sexual assault. Opposing those statements, women all around the world, embraced the bow in a new format, calling it a Pussy Bow and making it a lot more versatile, bold and ready to represent the 21st century. Bows this season made a comeback in all formats. From being used as a print at Rodarte to giant bows on Valentino, there was a bow connection to make. Bow Down to Bows Bows became…

Winter has finally arrived, just like Game of Thrones and we’re all set to conquer the winter, that too, in a new trend! A version of tweed that took over all the ramps and also hearts, it’s all about the Houndstooth weave this season. Winter means layering up, long sleeves, high-necks and thicker fabrics.

Autumn – Winter 19/20: The Trends & The Mood of the Season!

Autumn Winter 2019 has brought in two poles of fashion together, just like a mixed bag of chocolates. Let’s explore what it has in store for us, shall we? On one side, designers were paying homage to the not-so-discreet lavishness of the French Bourgeoisie, while on the other, the punk spirit could be felt in the air. Laughing at conventions and rousing the silhouettes of the ‘femme rebelle’, in all their punk connotations. However, both these opposing inspirations had one common denominator – they talked about breaking the mould of an ideal woman and celebrating what she is today. The Talking Point The 70s, 80s and 90s moods are surely coming together this season in all their old-school glory. While, on the other hand, the designers and international runways were also speaking about the world’s ongoing social and environmental concerns. Genderless fashion also became a most-talked-about point both front and…

AW 19/20: Checks Fashion 101 #Trendalert

Plaids, Gingham, Argyle, Checker board….there are n number of ways to describe it, but it’s all about one pattern. Can you make a guess? ‘Let the checks take over!’ was definitely the call of this season with ramps and runways flooded with this print. From patchwork to windowpane to even haphazard ones, there were checks on all. This Autumn-Winter 2019/20 checks took the route of remixed heritage, with one end being nostalgic towards the 1990s grunge era (See: Plaid flannel shirts of Nirvana & Pearl Jam) and the other talking to the feminist. From hats to shoes, checks took overall, in just a snap. Runway Checks A special mention to Christian Dior’s collection as they took over the checks print like no other. With plaid trousers, coats, tulle skirts, dresses and even scarves, Maria Grazia Chiuri was on a rampage. And checks were her muse. From plaid to tartan and…

AW 19/20: From Bralettes to Bracelets! #Newlaunch

There’s a whole lot of rebellion and feminism in the air with the new trend in town. It’s all about innerwear as outerwear this Autumn-Winter 2019/20. With modesty and guts, of course. While many fashion trends spoke about climate change, the Bourgeois woman and bringing back classics, there was also one not ready to stay quiet. Under the Slacker Chic macro trend, it’s not about being dainty or shy anymore. With self-expression taking on the stage and the so-called ‘private matters’ of domestic abuse, sexual assaults coming to surface, it’s a loud take on women reclaiming their bodies. Not Here to Hide! Although this trend comes and goes every few years, this season was like no other. One of the earliest rendition of this trend was the movie Easy A (2010), where Emma Stone wears corsets over jeans (and owns it) to defy the high school culture. Apart from that,…

AW 19/20: The Pop Colours Make a Comeback! #Fridayrefresh

Put the neutrals to the side, cause there’s another colour trend on the way! Brighter than the day and the ‘pop’ for all your winter looks, Neon is back in a big and bossy way this season. After all the subtle shades, the call of the ramps and runways turned to ‘Monotone no more’. Saint Laurent dazzled the crown with their black light setting and fluorescent outfits flashing shining bright. From sunglasses to shoes, neon shone through feathers and fur like never before. Christian Cowan added drama with trails, capes and sequin add-ons (plus a retro make-up) for a practical look, like never before. Jacquemus added structured vibes to neon with his version of neon coats that could work for day and night. Balenciaga, Off-White, Marine Serre and Sies Marjan were some of the other designers ready to add on these vibrant and bold colours to their collections. Taking inspiration…
