On September 14th, Darya Veledeeva, the editor-in-chief of Russian Harper's Bazaar commented on the fashion looks made up of the collections of the key BOSCO brands within the trunk show in VESNA, dedicated to the main trends of the coming fall-winter season.
Jil Sander, MSGM, No. 21, Calvin Klein, Tibi, Re / Done, DSQUARED, Alice + Olivia, Moschino, Gucci & Stone Island brands were presented within the trunk show.
In her opening speech Dasha Veledeeva, who just came back from the show SS 2018, noticed that "fashion always gives us a feeling and an opportunity to live in the future." According to Ms. Veledeeva, the fashion world is getting more and more vibrant every day – the collections come out one by one, some trends are replaced by others. However, if you look closely, there are clearly traced trends that are repeated by several designers and the fashion waves pass from season to season.
For example, "one of the brightest trends of this season is red total look. Having made an investment into one of these looks now, you can be in trend this & the next season. " The main color of the future autumn can be worn often, anywhere and in the highest concentration. It is necessary to combine different shades, textures and styles - this is the covenant of the leading designers who preach eclecticism this season.
Another trend is oversize. “Take on husband’s, boyfriend’s, brother’s or dad’s jackets, large loose coats & bulky sweaters. It is especially nice as you can wrap yourself in these cozy things when it’s cold and look fashionable at the same time. " The border between man & woman fashion is blurred. Shows become unisex, so stylists recommend not just wear things in "boyfriend" style, but go straight to the men’s corners for new clothes. Power suits come back together with the revival of feminism - business suits with broad shoulders & patterns like checks, chalk strip, hounds tooth are borrowed from British gentlemen.
Fashion has cycles, so the 90's with their torn jeans, loose jumpers & comfy bombers come back to the streets and runways. It seems that sport-chic will dominate for several seasons more. We can go further, and, according to Dasha Veledeeva, pay attention to the "vintage things that seem to have passed to you from your grandmother."
Another new trend was showed to round off the show: it is offered to shine this season. Sequins, glitter, lame - shine as bright as possible, because we urgently need something bright and life-affirming in autumn and winter.
The show in VESNA was held in See now, buy now concept, which becomes more & more popular from season to season. That is 44 men’s, women’s and children's looks presented on the runway, could be bought immediately after the trunk show, which many did. "The pearls of the main fashion brands are collected within our show – the articles that you will not get in Europe either. I got literally dizzy: it's great when, you can be inspired after the show and put it on immediately without waiting for six months, "Dasha Veledeyeva confessed.
