Daring combinations and rock outfits, power to the imagination… It won’t be a sober winter! The queen of this season? Leather, of course: studded, shining, satin, suede, in the most particular shapes and colors… Discover with us what’s on mind (and feet!) of the big designer labels for the next season.
If fall and winter are the “grey” seasons par excellence, get prepared for a turning point that will subvert this common belief: for the next season, in fact, eccentricity gets out of the way.
Fashion trends are following the previous season’s inclinations, getting inspired by icon characters as Peggy Guggenheim.
We will see a strong contamination and overlapping between styles and materials, that get renewed, move the tendencies up and enliven the most classic outfits thanks to original touches in shapes and colors.
Make way to oversized, mannish shapes, leather jackets, but also to rock feminine hints: an example? The Rockstud collection by Valentino, from which comes this suede studded boot. Firm and strong femininity, perfect to not get unnoticed!
Fashion designers’ fantasy leaves much room to color too, in this season: for example, Casadei chooses the warm and intense hue of strawberry red (in addition to vivid purple) for its leading model, a décolleté marked out by its platform giving name to the model itself (“Platforms”) and by soft and feminine lines, gentle volumes matched with more aggressive and grunge details, such as chain links and voluminous fringes.
It’s a young, easy trend, far away from serious slants: it’s not by chance that high heels are not throwing their weight around –not totally, at least. Some important brands have launched comfortable and sturdy shoes, suitable for everyday life’s full speed: one of them is the low waterproof boot by Louis Vuitton, in calf leather, enhanced by the metal logo on the ankle.
Does it all seem too much “exaggerate” to you? Don’t worry, there’s also who decided to stay classic, choosing for their new models more universal, bon-ton, classic lines and colors: pastel hues are very trendy, with matches between different soft – sometimes neutral – shades like pearl grey, sandy, or pale pink. One example is this amazing décolleté by Saint Laurent: soft dove grey suede, enhanced by very simple strings with metal loops.
And, talking about metal, we must hint at its shining that, during the cold season, offers very different suggestions than in summer: the so called “mirror leather” (or metallic leather) gets more warm and deep hues and gives a touch of special elegance even to really simple models. This shoe (by Gucci) in metallic leather totally (and quite literally) reflects the rock and “overlimits” trend we were talking about before:
And, talking about strong contaminations between different styles, we couldn’t neglect material mixtures: leather is always present, but is often matched with metals, fabrics and all fantasy can suggest to brilliant fashion designers: Chanel is introducing a colorful and playful, collection, not taking it too seriously: in this low heeled boot they combine smooth leather, wide details made of other materials, like tweed (here in black, white, purple, red and blue) and an interlaced detail with leather strings tied between shoe upper and shaft. Doesn’t its look give you excitement?
Therefore, also in the coming season we will see a lot of news for all tastes and styles and will have the opportunity to indulge ourselves in shopping: the must important thing is not to disregard quality! Always remember to check that you shoes are not only beautiful but also comfortable and warm: choosing real leather is an essential step to walk winter out happily… We swear!
