 What’s new for next winter? Plenty. Easywear continues to be big, we’ll still be wrapping up warm in cozy clothes that make us feel safe, but for 2018 comfort will also mean an eclectic succession of familiar pieces, that are also fail-safe in the style stakes. The overall trend might have been towards real clothes that are easy to throw on and a way of dialling seduction down to the everyday, but fashion didn’t forget about fun, color and glamour. Next winter will be determined, celebrating individuality and style with a multitude of trends that are dying to be worn. Choose yours.

1/24

Layering Layering is front and center for next winter, with plays on texture and volume in a masterful game of accumulation. Balenciaga gave the illusion of nine layered items worn at once, playing with trompe-l’œil extremes to take on the arctic cold. At Chanel, layering was more discrete, with an updated hoodie worn over a padded jacket, over a dress. Prada went for a night-bright, multi-layered vision that was seen by Miuccia Prada as so many layers of protection for women. From left to right: ChanelBalenciagaPrada

Cowgirl Fashion looked to America this season, to discover the New World through Western accents at Isabel Marant, an effortlessly chic Margot Hemingway-esque look at Lorenzo Serafini and a Wild West edge for Alberta Ferretti’s signature femininity.

Bouquets of flowers Florals of all kinds were given an update for the new season, in all-over prints on maxi and mini lengths that stayed just the right side of chic. A look that could easily take over next winter. From left to right: BalenciagaComme des GarçonsGucci

Padded jackets Comfortwear was a red thread through the Fall/Winter 2018-2019 shows, producing quilted volume in new proportions at Alexander McQueen, a little more classic at Chanel and hybrid forms in hi-tech fabrics at Sacai. Everyday armor for modern life. From left to right: Alexander McQueenChanelSacai

5/24

Eighties shoulders In variations on a theme that is as prevelent as ever, fashion continues its love affair with the 1980s by supersizing shoulders. Ever more extreme versions are unadulteredly exaggerated, leading the fight for fashion from the front. From left to right: Saint Laurent par Anthony VaccarelloFendiMarc Jacobs

Parkas Parkas were plentiful on the runways this season, offering protection from the winter’s cold with varying levels of eccentricity, from oversized mountains of material to light and airy versions, cut in contemporary shapes and sizes. From left to right: VetementsBalenciagaMaison Margiela 

7/24

Fake fur With good causes, charity projects and a simple desire to protect the planet, fashion is going green. The latest fight? A charge towards fake fur, led by Stella McCartney and joined by Gucci, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.

Fringing A recurring theme at Valentino, Alexander McQueen and Givenchy, fringing gave evening looks a poetic twist. A detail that made all the difference and added an air of glamor. From left to right: ValentinoAlexander McQueenGivenchy 

9/24

Workwear If fashion were a painting of society, this season’s subject would be blue collars eveywhere with a style that would not be out of place on a construction site. Think full-on hi-vis orange with reflective safety strips and plastic work boots. From left to right: Calvin Klein 205W39NYCBurberryPrada

10/24

Capes For anyone who wants to feel comfortable in their clothes come what may, the cape makes its come-back at just the right time. Easy chic par excellence, it’s an essential for any wardrobe that makes comfort and sex appeal its top priorities. From left to right: EtroAlberta FerrettiAlexander McQueen

 

11/24

 

The 1960s The Swinging Sixties were hanging in the air as models carried themselves with a new-found liberty and the designs played around the decade’s revolutionary, free spirit. Whether at Dior, Miu Miu or A.P.C., mini-dresses, skirts and capes were all on the catwalk, worn with ineffable style. From left to right: Miu MiuDiorA.P.C.

Fluoro kids Day-glo inspiration collided this season, bringing youth, techno, the 1990s and women’s rights together in a colorful festival of neon, featuring quirky architectural designs and technical materials. Fashion went pop with look-at-me pieces. From left to right: BalmainBalenciagaPrada

13/24

Night fever Diamanté and sequins lit up the catwalks this Fashion Week. But gone were the mini-dresses: instead, long, sparkling pieces ruled the runway, from 1980s jumpsuits to a Bianca Jagger pajama co-ord and even a Victorian-era gown. Elements of vintage clubbing lifted a trend otherwise firmly rooted in reality. From left to right: Giorgio ArmaniGucci and Alberta Ferretti

14/24

Sheepskin With fluffy materials, soft outlines and sand and camel hues, sheepskin is the natural choice for a winter wardrobe. This season saw urban and sporty takes on the look, with a cowgirl version by Louis Vuitton, a Sixties look at Dior and patchwork by Tod’s. Left to right: Louis VuittonDiorTod’s

15/24

Scarf prints From florals to bandana patterns and arty twists, this season, scarf prints were worn all over the body and flirted with all things kitsch. A fashion craze sure to take off, it plays on traditional conventions and styles, throwing caution to the wind for a look as glamorous as it is fun.

16/24

Hologram The common denominator at the Balmain, Maion Margiela and Sies Marjan shows? Ultra-reflective, high-shine materials. From the dazzling to the holographic, futuristic looks are set to be big in 2018. Think Barbarella and you won’t put a fashion foot wrong. From left to right: BalmainMaison MargielaSies Marjan

17/24

Hippie When fashion got a taste for folk, every rule went out of the window. “Mismatched” was out of the sartorial vocabulary this season, with patterns and textures mixed, juxtaposed or sewn together in patchwork for a luxe nomad look; think a 1970s Jimmy Hendrix and Talitha Getty mix-and-match revival.

18/24

Eighties jackets The star piece of this season’s wardrobe was a loose-fitting, short Eighties jacket updated for today. The perfect balance of seduction and power. From left to right: Alberta FerrettiSaint Laurent par Anthony VaccarelloMiu Miu

Pajama dressing With a sensual masculinity and a boudoir elegance, jackets reminiscent of a smoking jackets and dresses that look like nightgowns proved once again that nightwear is not restricted to an evening in. From left to right: Bottega VenetaY/ProjectGivenchy

Check Checks came in all variations and styles this season, but triumphed in fantastically mad all-over and color-blocked looks. Add an air of absolute confidence. From left to right: Michael KorsBurberryVersace

21/24

Flowing gowns On the first day of Paris Fashion Week, Jacquemus presented a show inspired by Moroccan souks, contrasting sensuality with a more casual feel. Natasha Ramsay-Levi swapped Chloé’s usual boho style for a wilder, more enigmatic look, whilst Pier Paolo Piccioli maintained a quintessential Valentino elegance, presenting feminine pieces finished with classic Italian grace. A romantic winter season, characterized by the evanescent, the feminine, and the supremely poetic. Left to right: JacquemusChloéValentino

Leopard print Diana Vreeland’s signature feline print has continued to claw its way into everyday trends and nighttime glamour alike, dominating the collections of Victoria Beckham, Gareth Pugh and Dolce & Gabbana. Left to right: Victoria BeckhamGareth PughDolce & Gabbana

Couture frills In the worlds of Marc Jacobs, Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton, the focus was on glamorous eveningwear: sensual and festive frills adorned classic couture silhouettes. Left to right: GucciAlexander McQueenMarc Jacobs

Knitwear One of this season’s hottest trend mixes comfort with elegance for a weather-appropriate winter look: think oversized pieces with chunky, scarf-like necklines. Left to right: ChanelHermèsAltuzarra
