Pick ‘n’ Mix
One of my most-loved trends (ongoing, not just throughout this particular fashion month) is the mixture of elements that ‘shouldn’t work’ but just do. This season, a number of designers have blended prints, colours, and textures to create a vibrant, chaotic mix; beautiful in its disconnection. Seen at Christopher Kane, Toga, Stella Jean (shown at Milan but definitely belongs in this category), and Ashish.
Whether it’s all over ruffles or a single stand alone frill, it’s been all about the flounce when it comes to trim. Seen at Holly Fulton, Sibling, Fyodor Golan, Roksanda, Ryan Lo, and Mary Katrantzou. Of course I love the maximalist approach to Ryan Lo’s frothy creations, but my favourite wearable takeaway from this trend is the voluminous bell sleeve.
