Trends from New York for Autumn/Winter 2010/11
- Red - and LOTS of it.
- Pattern clashes - intricate patterns based on maths/science (as seen on Preen with their uniform polyhedra prints)
- Polka dots - as at Marc Jacobs.
- Texture tastic - not only will we be mixing patterns, we'll be mixing textures as well. As seen at Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler,
- Thigh-high split skirts - my legs say no, but my brain says YES!
- Sheer tights - Is it just me or are they a bit, erm, Maggie Thatcher?
- Fur - on everything - on cuffs, on hats, skirts, everything. I guarantee that someone will manufacture fur underpants and make a profit. My personal stance on fur is pretty non-committal but the sheer amount of fur on the catwalks in NY seemed incredibly self-indulgent. Some of the most original collections didn't use fur at all.
Pic 10 - Where would we be without Jeremy Scott? The world would be a much duller place (and Katy Perry would have a yawning chasm in her wardrobe). I think that his collections are best viewed on individual merits. Example; this bikini/clear mac combo. Not something I could ever pull off in real life (and the world breathes a sigh of relief) but pair the crystal-encrusted mac with some monochrome tailoring? WIN.
Pic 11 - Marc Jacobs also works the clear clothing look, but this blouse is much more subtle.
Pic 15 - If you can hold a pair of knitting needles, you could easily knit this Rodarte jumper. I wonder how much the retail will be?
