2018 Fashion Week review by Lucia Fang
Spring Summer 2018 is taking on a massive shake up in the fashion industry, with Christopher Bailey departing Burberry and Riccardo Tisci about to takeover while Kim Jones leaving Louis Vuitton and joining Dior. Luxury has been redefine, with plenty of new ideas in the air. This season is surely anything but to miss! Lets get creative this season!
Rainbows at the Burberrys
After 17 years with Burberry, Christopher Bailey is departing the brand, collection was named Time: It was “about the past, present, and future” of Burberry. Taking referencing from company’s 80’s licensing part and celebrate it with streetwear gear like sweatshirts, bucket hats and baseball cap. If you wonder why is there all this rainbows symbolism everywhere on the catwalk, this is because Christopher is saying goodbye to Burberry while making a large donation to youth charities that support LGBTQ+ rights and mental health. Great design and good deeds indeed!
Pastel is back and its stronger than ever
Head over to Victoria Beckham show, we spotted some pastel violet head-to-toe acton.
Its about laying different shades and texture of pastel to achieve that full look without being dull. Take a look at how Michael Kors has done it so effortlessly with lilac! So girly girls, all you need to do is basically grab all your pastel items in slightly different shade and just stack them one on top of another like cream on a cake!
Waterproof plastics were a major look for S/S 2018. With rain season coming, this trend is best for any Hong Kong gal like me always on the go. Just take a look at how Parisian fashion house Chanel does it, so does other designer like Burberry, Isabel, Marant and Fendi make use of plastic this season, take note! We are expecting this plastic look is gonna go banana this coming Spring.
Designer this season is not going cheap on trimming, we saw fringe and feathers everywhere, French uber cool designer Jacquemus, Italian power house Salvatore Ferragamo and the up and coming London’s finest Marques’Almeida are the ones we love. You definitely don’t need a party to wear fringes and feather, and it doesn’t has to be decadent, it can easily be introduced to your wardrobe by start with little pieces!
