What fashion trends have been announced and what will be fashionable to wear in winter 2015-2016 according to British designers?
Daks collection Fall-Winter 2015-2016
The Creative Director of the British brand Daks, Filippo Scuffi, introduced a new Fall-Winter collection, the main emphasis being placed on practical outerwear, dresses and classic suits and of course accessories. A special place in the whole clothing line is dedicated to headwear with peaks. Despite the fact that the colors of the collection were rather monochromatic, the outfits turned out to be warm, pleasant and comfortable. The brand has opted for red, beige and the achromatic.
Not coincidentally the new Burberry Prorsum collection was called “patchwork, prints and patterns.” Analyzing the collection, it becomes clear that Christopher Bailey took inspiration from the 70’s. As it was not hard to guess, a special place in the whole collection was offered to prints, among which the most important were those of animals and plants. Also, the outdoor clothing items were worthy of praise. For example, coats were decorated with round mirror elements and sewn with suede patches. Poncho and cloaks were ornamented with fringes. Bags were also adorned with fringes. If we talk about the range of colors, we can say that the entire collection was executed in shades of burgundy, brown, blue and khaki.
Christopher Kane Fall-Winter 2015-2016
The main theme of Christopher Kane show became desire and sex, which were presented in a very unusual way. The Creative Director showed that to look provocative and sexy is not necessarily to get naked in public. Snake skin prints, iridescent fabrics, naked human bodies wrapped in chiffon, zigzag type prints (he designer believes that this is how an “electric orgasm” should look like) – because of these elements, the collection proved to be very interesting, original and impressive.
Antonio Berardi Fall-Winter 2015-2016
Antonio Berardi (the former student of John Galliano) could perfectly combine the sporty chic with femininity. Thus, to warm parka jackets and classic suits, Antonio playful added frills while printed dresses were combined with solid jackets. The originality to the collection added asymmetrical lines or bras sewn over tops.
It is not the first time when the young British designer is counting on fashion enthusiasts, who are accustomed to look brave and defiant. The new fall-winter collection was again a reflection of the modern opinion. This time the designer presented to his female fans stocking- boots made of red patent leather and shiny lingerie. In order to not freeze in the cold weather, the designer has included in his collection parkas trimmed with fur, jackets, pants, sweaters and skirts. Another trend, according to Ashish’s opinion, should be a combination of military style checks and colors. We must mention that the final images were found to be very bold, new and extravagant.
Topshop Unique Fall-Winter 2015-2016
To create this collection, Topshop Unique and many other brands, deepened in the retro style, so that the public could see little and modest dresses with floral prints, plaid tunics, trousers and colored leather clothes, bustier dresses decorated with artificial fur and colored fur clothes.
Erdem collection Fall-Winter 2015-2016
Fashion followers know that the Canadian fashion designer Erdem Moralıoğlu is used to bet on rich bright fabrics, sophisticated and intricate prints, making his collection to be appreciated by senior officials, for example, wives of politicians and Hollywood actresses. The new “cold” clothing line is no exception. The designer presented a camel wool coat, perforated leather dresses and dresses decorated with ostrich feathers.
Roksanda collection Fall-Winter 2015-2016
The undisputed leaders of Roksanda collection proved to be warm sweaters and dresses, as well as colored furs and abstract geometric prints. The presented bags and sundresses were also decorated with fur. Despite a bit strange and full of varied colors collection, all images have proved to be extremely smooth, and not incidentally, that in each case, the designer has thought all details. For example, the purple dress looked perfect with purple soled boots and colored skins looked perfectly with colored socks and boots.
The British brand Matthew Williamson, also has put on top of the collection bold combinations of colors and colored fur. In this line of clothing, we can see unusual combinations but rather original of floral print with leopard prints, and magenta and mustard colors, lilac and turquoise. The collection was successfully completed by suede fringed boots and glasses with prints and extremely big lenses.
David Koma collection Fall-Winter 2015-2016
It’s not the first time when David Koma publicly is demonstrating his love for architectural lines, strict geometry and concise silhouette. The new collection has become a kind of continuation of previous lines of clothing. Despite the similarity of its images, such images can hardly be called boring and monotonous. This time, the designer has launched again a practical and incredibly attractive line of clothes. Short leather skirts, decorated with ruffles or, for example, tight tops and dresses made of thin neoprene deserve all the attention. Some outfits were decorated with typical futuristic elements. The dominant color of the collection was black, which was only occasionally diluted with white, beige, orange and blue.
This is how British fashion designers see the fashion of the Fall-Winter 2015-2016 season. As demonstrated at London fashion week, women will not have time to get bored in the coming winter, because the immensity of models and collections impressive. Floral or animal, futurism or classic, black or red passions – decide and be fashionable!
