It’s that time of year again. The spring approaches, and the 100+ fashion shows for the spring 2020 season have come to a close. And now that the fun is over, the hard part gets started: figuring out which trends are going to stick. The runways saw many homages to the past, such as renovated crochet threads, graphic prints, and bold colors. Here’s a recap and sneak peak of next year.
Crochet Beyond The Quilt Historically just something you found on your grandma’s sofa, crochet is spreading its wings and coming back to your wardrobe for the first time since the hippie sixties. Tunics, dresses, and accessories are all finding some threaded inspiration here – and many think it’s thanks to the fashion industry’s effort toward sustainability. On top of that, the rich history of crocheting techniques around the world brings a new meaning to the fashion trend.
Hot Pants That Are Not Pants They’re called pants, but everyone knows these bottoms are as far from the floor as you can get. And next spring is going to see a lot of them. Rag & Bone “upped” their denim and Brandon Maxwell went even smaller with spandex, while Hermès and Ferragamo decided to combine the short shorts trend and the crochet trend all in one. In typical style, Chanel kept the look classy with black tights.
The Disco Collar Disco might have died, but this year it’s being brought back to life. The wide disco collar, favored by the Studio 54 set, made its comeback on coats, jackets, and button-downs at Lanvin, Ferragamo, JW Anderson, and more. It was even given its own color on many items it belonged to – it’s not interested in blending in.
