Fall 2019 New York Fashion Week Trends You Need to Know AboutThursday 21 February 2019
Fall 2019 New York Fashion Week Trends You Need to Know About ⇒ New York Fashion Week wrapped up last week, and with it, debates about the forthcoming trends have already expanded all over the world. As we know – fashion is not only a creative expression that influences our outfit choices in the morning – it is also a big indicator of what we will be coveting next in our homes. On that note, we leave you with our ‘CovetED trend picks’ from New York Fashion Week, as well as how you can integrate them into your home.
Simply put, New York Fashion has taught us so far, that fresh and happy is the way to go forward. Even though the shows presented their Fall collections, the colour palette was more diverse than it was neutral. You can expect rich pops of colour, a wide range of interesting textures, as well as a mix and match of it all.
Yes! Animal print, in all colours, sizes, and fabrics. It’s an entire ‘jungle feast’, you could say. It can include anything from realistic recreations of python and leopard skin to more creative versions where the unconventional use of colour takes us back to a happier time where hot pinks, lavender and banana yellow are kings.
Who’s to blame (or shall I say thank for)? – Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Proenza Schouler, 3.1 Philip Lim, and Coach – to name a few.
Following this line of thought, we can expect our homes to be interpretations of ‘more is more’ where colour and visually appealing prints take the role of a protagonist.
Quilted textures have been around for some months now as puffers jackets are the preferred ones amongst the fashion crowd. And why not? They are warm, comfortable, and pretty much a fashion statement. Fashion houses such as Prabal Gurung, Christian Siriano, and Oscar de la Renta decided to take it a little further this year and showcased cocktail-appropriate versions of puffers on the runway. Cool yet sophisticated? We say yes to that!
Not only that, but the obsession with quilting has also been incorporated into looks filled with quilted textures from head to toe. Rachel Comey did this beautifully in shades of pale blue and yellow.
At home, you can add little details of quilted textures, be it in pillows, duvets, or if your brave enough, even chairs.
This is it, the colour you want to bet on when feeling bolder. If you want your outfit (or home, for that matter), to be sophisticated yet bold, the little twist of colour you need it this: purple! Still, you don’t want to go to just any shade of this colour, you want to grab a vibrant purple that screams out to the world; majestic!
After marigold yellow as the main hue for Sring 2019, the new front runner for colour can now be admired in pieces from – Derek Lam, Michael Kors, Anna Sui, Kate Spade New York, Claudia Li.
While, still, on the colour front, let’s talk about another trend which takes to a surreal world where anything is possible. This is for those who like to brand new world, who enjoy being the pioneers in anything they do in their lives.
This is brought to us through iridescent pants as seen on Area as well as head to toe colour-blocking outfits as showcased during Prabal Gurung’s show. Other inspiring examples of this trend were seen at Rodarte where a model graced the crowd with an acid-green ball gown, or at Tomo Koizumi;s where the entire colourful is a happy rainbow explosion.
At home is all about the details. You don’t need to go full acid green. – You can either mix different, bright colours or simply keep it neutral but with a big pop of colour somewhere.
Still going strong with colour, New York Fashion Week brought us gorgeous leather pieces crafted in beautiful purples, pale blue hues as well as bright orange.
Designers such as Sies Marjan went for a total leather look where the focus was on the great tailoring allied with a statement colour. While others, such as Ulla Johnson, preferred a ‘mix and match’ kind of deal, where you pair a beautiful leather piece with an animal print of the same colour.
In our homes, we can translate this in a pretty similar way. It’s all about staying in the same colour pallet, using leather, and possibly combining it with animal prints.
