Fall 2014 Trends

See the top Fall 2014 trend slideshow »

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.

Street Style Milan Fashion Week

See all the weekend looks from Milan »

A weekend of fashion in Milan brought out the sunshine and, of course, the obligatory bare legs. With the mercury rising (in Europe that is), the fashion elite geared up for what will probably be another sweltering summer and flexed their gams in playful and unique skirts and dresses.

The look of the weekend definitely seemed to be quirky skirts in an array of bright colours and unusual cuts, with nary a plain A-line skirt in sight. Just take a peek at all of the high-cut front slits, origami layers, with everything from a Joe Cool mini to an ankle skimming plaid kilt. Even Carine Roitfeld’s long black pencil skirt had a playful little side slit. Miroslava Duma on the other hand, kept things chic and simple in a variety of matching pantsuits, each featuring high-waisted pleated trousers and a loosely slung jackets.

Makeup trend alert: It’s all about painting your foreheads gold for Fall 2014

fall 2014 beauty trend gold forehead

Photography by Peter Stigter

Spring’s molten-gold eye makeup trend is moving in a different direction for Fall 2014—like, literally moving across your face. It started in London at Simone Rocha, with M.A.C makeup artist Sam Bryant applying gold leaf to models’ foreheads. The look was intended to be haphazard, with some models getting “gold sweat beads” and others having more of a “full-on effect.” Should you want to try this look at home, proceed carefully: “Bryant said the leaf is so delicate that no one can breathe on it, and if the girl’s skin is too hot it won’t stay,” reported WWD.

A more DIY-friendly approach to the forehead-anointing trend was spotted this weekend in Milan. Ten models at the Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 show were given a splash of gold above their brows and down the bridge of their noses. Read more »

Milan Fashion Week wraps today but we don’t have to wait till sundown to tell you the trends. Mother Nature was a heavy presence with some designers citing the elements as inspiration. Roberto Cavalli even ignited a giant ring of fire for the models to walk around (turning the tent into an oven, we might add). We also saw lots of fabric morphing and dark florals. Here’s what’s trending from the weekend’s shows:

Milan Fashion Week: Fall 2014 gone commercial?

Comments

Versace Fall 2014

There are a few trends of the moment that look as if they are going to be around longer than a moment.

Digi prints, fabric-blocking, arty references and elevated sport  (all in the spotlight for Spring 2014) are among the familiar turf that is being revisited here for fall.

It almost feels as if Italy’s step into the future is a tentative one. Unless you are talking about coats, and then designers are taking a big, bold leap into long-haired shearling.

Minimalism is creeping in to some collections, most notably at Versace, where Donatella mostly kept embellishment in check for her sleek pantsuits and hanky-hem dresses. Even the patterned minks weren’t as over the top as they could have been in her hands. Sportmax had some outfits that were shown two ways: one subdued, one not. For instance, deep V dress came in solid red and black, as well as a wildly-coloured paint splatter print.

Some people are using the C-word (commercial) to describe some shows. But is that such a bad thing? Perhaps the yearning to move merch explains how varied some collections can be.

Blumarine had a buttoned-to-the-neck leather dress walking behind a peekaboo floral and lace mini. Confused? You’re not alone.

When you’re heading to the shows of some the biggest names in fashion, you had better dress the part. And that’s exactly what show goers did yesterday for the Prada and Fendi shows. The streets of Milan were practically a back catalogue of recent statement looks from the two fashion houses, with some of the greatest hits from Karl & Miuccia coming back out to play.

The coveted and desirable Fendi “bag bugs” from the Fall 2013 collection only to be matched by the brand’s latest incarnation of the furry accessory, the Karl Lagerfeld fur bag, designed by the man himself. We also spied an olive greet colour block dress from Prada’s Spring 2014 collection mixed in a thrifty move with a ringed fur stole from Spring 2011. Everyone’s favourite clotheshorse Anna Dello Russo, among others, toted Fendi’s Peekaboo fur bag to accent her canary yellow fur coat, while Leigh Lezark was in head to toe Fendi in an ombré-d layered dress and monster-like fur coat.

Would you actually wear Jeremy Scott’s first collection for Moschino?

Jeremy Scott Moschino

Jeremy Scott made his much-anticipated debut for Moschino yesterday during Milan Fashion Week and it was just as cheeky as expected. Bookending a perfectly trendy ode to classic Moschino (the brand’s iconic logo belts were re-imagined on boots, skirts and crop bustiers), Scott served up faux-McDonalds uniforms, a Froot Loop peplum, SpongeBob SquarePants crop tops, a Hershey’s chocolate bar dress and a bridal gown made of an enlarged nutrition label.

Scott has built an empire on low culture Warholification, as evidenced by the stacked front row including Katy Perry and Rita Ora. And while we’re sure the dresses will end up in the rotation for pop stars, we have a hard time seeing them IRL on anyone other than Anna Dello Russo (she’s already paraded her favourite look on Instagram, obvi).

Milan Fashion Week: The latest art movement influencing the Fall 2014 shows

Fendi Fall 2014

See the latest from Milan »

Day Two of Milan fashion week started and ended with a laugh: Cara Delevingne opened the Fendi show carrying a furry Karl Lagerfeld doll while drones buzzed overhead. And Jeremy Scott closed the day with a send up of McDonalds, Chanel and Sponge Bob for his Moschino debut. In between there were lots of shoulder details, shearling and digi prints to note.

But it was the early 20th century Constructivist art movement that turned out to be the word of the day. If it’s been a while since your last art history class, here’s a refresher. Constructivism is the early 20th century avant-garde movement characterized by abstract geometry. But it’s the description I found on the MoMa website that I want to focus on, one that depicts Constructivism as precise, impersonal, and having a clear formal order.

Now have a look at some of the abstract geometry from day two of the Milan shows:
