10 trends we learnt from Adidas Originals x Kanye West Yeezy Season 1 Collection

By October 30, 2015Fashion News

Sure temperatures are dropping and leafs are falling, but that certainly doesn’t mean your fashion game has to go down too!

Autumn/Winter season provides a sensational opportunity for fresh beginnings. Forget the casual summer attire, it is the colder months when we get down to the style nittty gritty and we weed out the trend setters from the trend followers. So if you consider yourself a debonair James Bond type rather than a sartorial haphazard Jonny English, then the next five Autumn trends are a must have for saving the world, one great outfit at a time.

Chelsea Boots

Using the word immortalised by Keith Lemon, Chelsea boots are ‘Bang tidy’. Both easy on the eye and heavy duty, PAUSE can certainly guarantee they are enough to withstand the unpredictability of the colder months. Chelsea boots are those clothing rarities where style and practicality are married perfectly and with brands like Common Projects and Saint Laurent, there is certainly no shortage of choice. In a cognac brown or black, the styling potential is practically limitless, plus the heavy duty design provides a lot of room to layer up on top. But Chelsea boots look at their absolute finest when added with skinny black jeans, shirt and a long overcoat or biker jacket.

Shearling Jackets

Following the 70s revival – a personal trend favourite at PAUSE, brands such as Stuart Vevers and Coach are flooding their runways with striking shearling jackets. With so many modern style offerings, the trend has quickly diverted its course from Del Boy faux pas to 1930’s Aviator suave reminiscent of Steve McQueen. A shearling coat makes a stylishly classic combination with an oxford shirt/sweater pairing and black cotton trousers. However, if you want to go for something a little more edgy, opt for jeans and a statement patterned shirt. Considering a statement coat is a wardrobe staple all great outfits are built on, it is important to make the right choice in the outwear department. But with the shearling jacket on your shoulders just like a aviator pilot, you’ll be flying so fashionably high.

Turtle Neck

Nothing epitomises sophistication and cool better than a roll neck. It could be paired with a blazer and chino or a simple trouser and trainer combination and still make the outfit equally at home with the style elite. But considering it’s 2015, your generic black roll neck doesn’t quiet seem like a top of the fashion agenda. So instead, try out some more risque colour blocks. We at PAUSE are thinking bright red and navy, which add an eye catching twist to an outfit without making it any less sophisticated. Despite the pop of colour, the same style rules apply, so put on your blazer for an instantly dressed up look or keep it causal with trousers and sneakers.

Earth Tones

With Mother Nature changing the environment, its no surprise her influences would be felt in fashion. Autumn in particular is all about the earth tones. With such a wide selection of shades from opulent emerald green to the deeper shades like artichoke, autumnal colour pallete offers a flattering option for any skin tone. You can give it a go with parkas, simultaneously adding a trendy military feel to your outfit. Or you can experiment with your choice of chinos and trousers to give your look a new focal point. If you are searching for inspiration, PAUSE recommends you look no further than Christophe Lemaire perfectly sculpted pieces or Micheal Kors smart-casual separates.

Wide Leg Trousers

On this list, the wide leg trousers trend is a trickier one to master. But if done right, it will guarantee you an effortlessly chic attire with an added bonus of envious comfort. To avoid looking like you raided your granddad’s wardrobe, PAUSE recommends to keep the rest of your outfit as clean and simple as possible. Think a round-neck white tee or a thick wool sweater and your classic Adidas Sam Smith’s. And make sure the trousers hit below your ankles and are made from a thick fabric for that casual but still pull together look.

 

We at PAUSE already know what will make it onto our Christmas wish-list…

Kanye West’s long-awaited collection has a lot to teach not only his fans, but everyone interested in fashion about the hottest trends. Here is our PAUSE top 10:

1) Kanye West clearly believes that monochramatic dressing is the recipe for a good outfit. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, but when it comes to his autumnal pallette of dark shades of green, black and grey, sticking to only one tone does the trick. It instantly gives its wearer a perfect base to play with textures and shapes without being distracted by the excess of colour.

2) This leads us to the choice of hues. The earth tones are clearly the way to go according to Kanye, and he cannot be more accurate. The gloomier shades are always more popular on the catwalks as the days get colder, and this year was no exception. Take your inspiation from Mother Nature, and stay on top of your fashion game with the colours of autumn leaves and cloudy skies.

3) Speaking of cloudy skies: there is nothing more important than the statement coat when the temperature drops. And in the eyes of Kanye West, the longer the coat, the better. Think floor-sweeping long. At least, that is the only length the rapper chooses for himself and rest assured: all the trendy people this season will do too.

4) Yeezy’s aesthetics screams military, which the creator assures was inspired by London riots. Despite being slighly behind in terms of timing, the decision to add the camouflage coats and aggressive boots feels fresh. Combined with sportswear pieces like joggers and trainers, we at PAUSE think this will definitely be a hit not only on the streets of London, but in all of the fashion capitals of the world.

5) Joggers are clearly having a moment in fashion right now. After the skinny jeans occupation, the relaxed sports trousers feel like a breath of fresh air. Despite being labelled ‘a synonym of failure’ by the fashion designers of the previous generation, joggers and sweatpants take the central stage in Kanye West. After all, for the price of £365, they do not seem that pathetic.

6) Challenging our perception of luxury and keeping up with the military/dystopian theme, the ripped clothes become a big part of Kanye West’s collection. So don’t worry about throwing away or sewing your damaged items anymore, because according to our predictions, no one will blink an eye seeing a tear on your sweater anymore. Just make sure the rest of your outfit is in impeccable condition.

7) Yeezy 950 boots are the gem of this collection, with everyone from celebrities to mere mortals worshipping them. Giving a rough edge to every outfit, wear them with everything from the mentioned above joggers to the more tailored trousers. A perfect marriage of style and comfort.

8) Kanye West loves to live big, so there is no surprise such luxury as fur made its way into his collection. A potentially intimidating piece in a man’s wardrobe, Kanye made it look wearable and even, dare we say tough, by keeping the fluff levels to a minimum and sticking to a dark pallet. One of the key pieces in the Autumn/Winter 2015/16 collection, there is no surprise Kanye didn’t leave it out.

9) In the rapper’s world, it is all about layers, which cannot be more appropriate for the colder weather, particular here in Britain where you never quite know what to expect. Yeezy proves that there is nothing wrong with longer pieces of fabrics picking under the hems of the shorter pieces, as long as you keep it monochrome and clean.

10) And last but not least, we have to address the elephant in the room. The recent editorial for GQ showed the one and only Abel Tesfaye – aka The Weeknd – wearing the Yeezy collection and there is no denying that the man’s self-confidence (and his unusual choice of hairstyle) is the finishing touch these pieces need. At the end of the day, Kanye West is famous for his individuality: there is no trend nowadays more celebrated than that.
