SS ’20: The Return of the Vintage Denim! #TrendAlert

Flared, bootcut, bell-bottomed, straight, are no longer only about the 70s, but about Spring-Summer 2020 too! Denim is making a comeback this season and that too, in all it’s vintage style. Go head-to-toe this SS20 with the denim trend ’cause it’s back in all it’s retro styling. From vintage washes, 70s flares, cropped culottes, shorts to classic jackets and washed-out blues, denim is all about being effortlessly cool, and we can’t get enough! Indigo on the Go! The shade of the season? – Indigo was seen raging across all the ramps and runways. Celine’s collection, which was basically an ode to classic dressing, incorporated denim shirts with extra-long wide jeans and tasselled bags. Reminding us a little of ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ and even ‘Grease’, there were long blazers, boots and even suede jackets. Chanel, on the other hand, played with ruffles and lace additions. Alberta Ferretti, while…

SS’20: Scarves, Scarves & More Scarves! #TrendAlert

There’s a new clothing game-changer in town with knots, stitches and Summery flows! Any guesses? It’s the era of the Scarf! And NOT in an accessory format. Scarf, scarf everywhere and not just in the hair or air. Scarves this Spring-Summer 2020 have taken a turn towards mainstream clothing. In all it’s print and quirky formats, this season it’s all about the drapes and wearing them as clothes rather than accessories. From pants to tops to even dresses, there’s a scarf realigned for all looks. This silky addition is being called the ‘Scarf Dressing’ which is the new street-style to make way for. Fasten it, Knot it or Dress it up! The ramps and runways were going head-over-heels with this trend! While Burberry was adding on these silky flows to formals and neutrals, Erdem was all about the print play. Combining various print patterns and colours together, it was a…

SS ’20: All About Rock Star Tailoring! #TrendAlert

Say hello to the new power dress of the season! The key highlights? Imagine the 70s, the Disco collar, long blazers, waistcoats and flared pants – all coming together to form the suit. The Pant Suit. Quoting Barney Stinson (’cause of course we have to!), it is time to Suit Up! And that too, in all the vintage looks and three-piece suits. Low slung trousers, power shoulders, disco collar and an array of colours were visible across all the ramps and runways. A key element of the 1970s, the pantsuit was about pursuing equality as women entered the workforce. One of the major influencers of the Pantsuit was the movie Annie Hall, which showcased Diane Keaton wearing this attire on a daily basis (and pulling it off, if we must say). Margot Kidder in Superman (See: Louis Lane) was also a suit – spiration if we must say! Keeping it…

SS’20: Groove Into the 70s Era! #TrendAlert

Whether it was about Stayin’ Alive with the Bee Gees, being the Dancing Queen with ABBA or a Champion with Freddie Mercury… the 70s were totally lit! Annnnnddd ready for a comeback! The 70s made a flashy entrance in all it’s Disco format this season. With a clash of prints and a kaleidoscope of colours, the retro vibe was hard to miss! Pairing floral print with stripes or colour-blocking with hallucinating patterns, everything was in. Polka dot it, stripe it or just let your imagination take over, anything and everything works! The 70s era was essentially a time of self-expression, anti-war movements, hippies and how can we forget – Disco. After all the blunders of 60s, the youth was ready to maximalize their clothes and their expressions with it too. Music was one such stream that influenced fashion in a big way. The 1970s became a musical bridge for the…

SS ’20 The Raffia Weave: From the Designer’s Desk

While sustainable and ethical are clearly the call of the season, there’s a new fabric on the ramps – Raffia. An African inspiration for this Spring, this trend was not just for clothing, but all accessories too! Giving it a head-to-toe look, Oscar de la Renta added bags and dresses with floral patterns while Dolce and Gabbana dyed the fabric and created dresses and skirts. Raffia took a turn this season from its conventional methods and adopted a modern silhouette. While this fabric trend was moving all across the ramps and red carpets, our designer too, was feeling inspired. Here’s a little behind-the-scenes! What is this material exactly? Raffia material basically comes from the Raffia palm leaves found in the Madagascar region. These leaves are first dried, created into strands and woven together to make a fabric. Raffia is also known as Kuba clothing in Africa and was traditionally woven…

SS ’20: The African Weave Work #TrendAlert

Sustainability is in, everything else is out! Spring-Summer 2020 is changing the fashion game, and with it comes in a new fabric – Raffia! There’s an African inspiration in town, and we’re totally in awe! Made out of Raffia palm leaves, this trend is woven in a typical basketweave pattern. However, this season it went to another level! Incorporating modern techniques and their flair, it was quite a spectacle to watch! A sustainable soft fibre, it is the new path of eco-friendly clothing. Raffia Ramps Dolce and Gabbana were clearly excited about this fabric. From tassels, bralettes to dyed fibres and bias-cut dresses, there was an excitement in the air. Adding scarves around the neck, Sunflowers in the hair and, of course, Raffia bags, it was a full-power Raffia takeover. Christian Dior was all things planetary this season and Raffia was not something they left behind either! From Raffia hats…

SS ’20 Eco-Conscious: From the Designer’s Desk

Sustainable, ethical, eco-conscious, are no longer just words but have transformed into what we call fashion today. Spring Summer 2020 gave us a whole macro trend of Climate Change. With designers showcasing their take on recycling, reusing and upcycling, it was about saving our environment. And more than that, it was about leaving a better world for our future generations, than just stories! While Vivienne Westwood’s quote of – ‘Buy Less, Make it Last’ echoed through, her collection included squiggly prints & mishmash shirting made from leftovers fabrics. Tiziano Guardini showcased his Atlantis inspiration with wavy patterns in cruelty-free silk and impressions of the sea.  On the other hand, Marine Serre incorporated recycled plastic for her theme. From accessories to clothes, everything was recycled. While all the ramps had a thing to say and contribute, we too were inspired to take a stand! So here we are sitting down with…

SS’20 Trend: Sustainable Fashion #TrendAlert

This Spring Summer 2020, think recycle, think reuse, think ethical! Fashion is taking a turn this season, for the environment. Our Earth has been calling out to us for quite some time now. With the increasing pollution and the changing climate, there’s been a lot of things. And this season took inspiration and called out its support for just that. Fashion got increasingly conscious this season and decided to take a more sustainable route. With lesser productions, streamlined shows, recycling and upcycling materials, the atmosphere was raw. However, they also showed us that anything is possible. The Sustainable Storytellers London Fashion Week became the first ‘positive fashion’ platform for sustainability, with new brands and designers showcasing their takes. Vivienne Westwood’s quote – ‘Buy less, choose well, make it last’, was very evident in her collection this season. With unused fabrics, squiggle patterns and panelled shirts, there was a medley of…

There’s a new floral trend in town and this time it’s not about being romantic or rebellious, but about running in the wilderness – free. And also, letting the Dandelions float with the breeze!

This Spring Summer 2020, florals took a turn towards the unmanicured and self-growing wildflowers.

We’re going back to the 18th Century and definitely taking you for a ridealong! With hair all decked up and gowns with hoops, there’s a new trend in town! Taking a trip down the French courts and the era of Madame de Pompadour, this trend takes inspiration from the gowns of this fashionable, inofficial Queen. The chief mistress of Louis XV, she had an extraordinary taste in dress, art and decoration. With intricate detailing, her flouncy dresses were consistently captured on canvases by various artists. Frilled sleeves, panniered gowns and ruffled necklines reflected the 18th Century grandeur like nothing else.
