We’re taking you through some of the most popular trends which dominated the AW ’17 ramps of London, Milan, Paris, and New York. What’s it going to be this time around? Something hip? Classy? Quirky? Well, there’s only one way to find out.

CAMO CALLING

Camouflage prints and patterns have always been around. This time around, designers such as Nigel Cabourn and Maharishi have changed things up a bit. It’s all about going all the way and sporting your love for camo from head-to-toe. If that might be too much for you to handle, pick statement pieces like jackets, T-shirts or even baseball caps in this print.

 

ROLL-NECK THUNDER

While varsity, biker and bomber jackets have been having their say for a while, this season it’s time to make way for the humble roll-necks. From JW Anderson to Casely-Hayford, this style grabbed a crazy amount of attention at many AW’17 catwalks. Go for an oversized roll-neck jumper paired with skinny trousers and sneakers to take the cold by storm.

 

ARTY PEP

Comic books, graffiti, sketches and even paintings. Those with a love for art (and all the quirk associated with it) are to step out wearing it from top to bottom. In the past, we have seen art and its different forms come to life on tees but this time around you can expect even jackets, pyjamas and jeans from the likes of Alex Mullins and Topman Design to throw you a surprise.

 

TUCK-IN TIME

Who says tucking in is restricted to just shirts and half-sleeve tees? AW 17’s catwalks have added a whole new meaning to the idea of tucking in with blazers, sweatshirts and even full-sleeve tees slipped into trousers along with caps and boots for company.

 

’70s STATE OF MIND

No keys to a time machine needed, at least that’s what everybody felt while gawking at the array of exquisite pieces from the collections of Miu Miu, Mulberry, Prada, and more. Be it disco spunk, urban panache, or fortune-teller florals, the ’70s were back, full throttle! We’re getting on the bandwagon, are you?

 

CORPORATE MAKEOVER

Office wardrobes certainly get an update this time with slimmer silhouettes and sharp shoulders being added to the equation. More than just a throwback to the ’80s, this line of formals from well-known trend smiths such as Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein and Celine is expected to own boardroom proceedings courtesy contemporary elegance which is too hard to ignore. Miranda Priestly would be proud.

 

LEATHER 2.0

Leather always spelt tough but this time around we have a softer version grabbing the limelight. Kicking aside the rugged biker-chic appeal we all know and love, is this refreshing range of leather crafted by the likes of Acne Studios, Bottega Ventea and Hermes. It comes in multiple forms from jackets to dresses and pants.

 

QUILT TRIP

Say “ciao” to those conventional pea coats and jackets because layering up takes a quilted turn in AW’17. With prints, sparkly details and even cosmic overtones, these coats from Chanel, Dries Van Notern and Mulberry are ideal for those who love to ooze an aristocratic chutzpah with delightful loft. Can’t wait to try them all, right? These are all the trends that are set to grab attention in the coming season. Time to snap out of your awe, get out there, and start stocking up.
