Trends

REPORT BY JANE DE TELIGA

Our style crib sheet to the season so far, as we’re out of here Tuesday…

STRUCTURAL ROMANCE
The flow of form: think structured panels at Mary Katrantzou and curves at Antonio Berardi.
COUTURE RECALL
The golden age of couture: Preen reprised Dior’s New Look in bustle skirts, while Huishan Zhang looked to the YSL Mondrian graphic dress.
TEXTILE TREMORS
Bye bye pattern:  hello embroidery at Peter Pilotto and laser-cut satins at Jonathan Saunders.
PUNK REDUX
Debbie Harry chic: think punky Chelsea boots at Clements Ribeiro and slashing zippers at Preen.
PIN-UP GIRLS
Concealed sex: the inspirations? The gap between Béatrice Dalle’s teeth at Holly Fulton; Christine Keeler at Burberry Prorsum.
THE LADY
La di da: think Temperley London’s Hitchcock heroine Kim Novak; L’Wren Scott’s Gustav Klimt sirens; Diana Vreeland at Emilia Wickstead.
CRYSTAL PALACE
Sparkle-larkle lights: cascades of crystals at Antonio Berardi; deco Machine Age silver at Sass & Bide.
PRE-RAPHAELITE GOTHIC
Lady of the lake: Guinevere sleeves at Marios Schwab; Kristen McMenamy’s long locks at Giles.
NINETIES
Already?: think Christopher Kane’s luxe camo; Thomas Tait’s street-style cashmere and House of Holland doing acid house.
GLACE LEATHER
Spit and polish: glazed vinyl at Jonathan Saunders; shiny yellow vinyl at Sass & Bide, and patent and latex trenches at Burberry Prorsum.
