New Formal

There is an increase of tailoring on the catwalk shows. Blazers, DB jackets, tailored trousers, blazer dresses and midi skirts are key items. Looks are feminine and are suitable for workwear and partywear. Designers highlight the waist – corset and big buckle belts structure and balance voluminous silhouettes. Ruffles, outsized pockets and structured shoulders drive volume. The woman is powerful, independent and stylish. These items can be seen as a bit old-fashioned but they are twisted with zips, raw-edge details and buttons which make them contemporary. Stripes are still trendy this season, we can now call it a basic.
