Sci-fi is back, so are the holographic and metallic trends. From Calvin Klein, to Maison Margiela and Balmain, metallics are perfect for completing a bold look this fall.
3. FAUX FUR
If you want to stay warm and feel cozy, but look trendy at the same time, faux fur is your perfect choice. To add more fun play with different hues and silhouettes. Look into Dries Van Noten, Hussein Chalayan and Sonia by Sonia Rykiel‘s FW18 collections to find your perfect faux fur coat.
This season high-shine fabrics were key on the catwalk. Choose between classic black or red, or jump in to the unexpected shades of khaki and pink. Pair your vinyl coat from Fendi, Miu Miu or Gareth Pugh with contrasting fabrics to nail the look.
Plaid is still a key player on Fall Winter runways and it’s never looked better. From classic neutral tones embraced by Givenchy, Balenciaga and Stella McCartney to vibrant colours used in Versace and Prada collections, plaid is surely here to stay.
6. ANIMAL PRINT
This season animal prints are in full force. We’re not just talking the classic leopard print, now you can choose between zebra, python, cheetah, and so many more. You can look for your perfect piece in almost every FW18 collection, from Tom Ford and Victoria Beckham, to Zara and H&M.
