With the autumn/winter drops arriving in-store and online, the time to pick up your essentials for the cooler weather season is now. While the shows seem a lifetime ago, we’ve taken a look back at some of the biggest trends from the runway and how you can get on board.
From bucket hats at Fendi to tracksuits, rhinestones, archive trainer styles and more nostalgia-inducing pieces strewn across the runways during the autumn/winter 2018 collections – nineties vibes are in. Jump on the trend with obvious options like the bucket hat from Prada/Ader Error or a pair of track sneakers from Balenciaga.
From footwear to practical apparel choices suited to a walk in the wilderness, brands such as Vetements, Lanvin and Louis Vuitton were consistent in their hiking inspired message. Pick up a pair of laced boots to hop on this trend with clean iterations like Moncler’s, ALYX’s neoprene options or Gucci’s much-loved take on the humble hiking boot.
While we’ve seen this gain traction for the past few seasons now, logomania was well and truly present on the autumn/winter menswear runways with Prada, Gucci & Dior among those placing branding front and centre. From the ostentatious Fendi jacket & trousers to the practical from Prada – shop the trend with the no-brainers below.
Crocodile skin at Hermès, snakeskin at Tom Ford, shearling at Berluti & leopard at McQueen – animal materials, both synthetic and real, are everywhere. Opt-in with something understated like a Gucci sweater with a leopard appliqué or go all out with some croc-skin & fur from Saint Laurent.
Amongst the typical slew of cross body bags (Prada, Heron Preston), tote bags (Saint Laurent, Acné), holdalls, etc. at the men’s shows – genderless or more traditionally women’s bag designs are really beginning to creep in. Test the waters with Loewe’s pouch bag or go for practicality with revered A-COLD-WALL*’s messenger.
