Far from spare minimalism, black is a
colour that you can really play with. Vera Wang certainly knows this as she
churned out a predominantly black collection at the recently concluded New York
Fashion Week. There were textures, mish-mash of fabrics, and clever insertions
of white. Take a simple black silhouette and give it depth! Alternatively, opt
for cool layering in easy styles.
It’s a block party as the 70’s show
continues on the Fall 2015 runways of New York. Maybe you’re not one to go for
kitsch prints or bohemian notes, well take cues from the New York catwalk and
work dynamic blocks of colour into your outfit. This look will take you from Spring
to Fall and back to present day again.
What comes to your mind when you think of
tonal colours? Different shades of the same colour would be the most common answer
of course. But let’s try something different. It could be overlapping layers of
the same fabric or a discreetly sheer fabric that shows off just a hint of your
skin colour. Now, that’s tonal minimalism.
Pale pastels continue to rule colour trend
reports for Fall 2015, a continuation from the soft and weathered colour
palette of Spring 2015. So now is the perfect time to get in on this trend if
you have not already done so. We put the focus on pale nude, an evergreen
colour that appeared on the Herve Leger runway.
Pretty, sensual, and delicate. To some
designers, sheer fabrics are a mainstay in their collections. We say, sheer
garments are a must-have in our wardrobes, especially on those warm days. It’s
not all about baring skin, though. Take a look at the construction where
fabrics of different weights are fused together and you’ll be amazed.
Appreciate fashion for what it is!
