maven46 Trend Report
Forget minimalism and the streamlined non-chalance of previous seasons, autumn/winter 2016 is all about over indulgence. Take your wardrobe to the extreme in the form of classic rebellious clothing such as grunge as seen at Alexander Wang, punk at Isabel Marant and general anarchy at Vetements, or play homage to the 80’s icons from Prince, to David Bowie or Alexis Colby of Dynasty.
Animal print and all things feline add to the confidence of the season, while Gothic blooms and Victorian romanticism provide the darker side but in all its opulent glory from over-sized frilled cuffs, ruffles, lace and moody florals. The result is a kaleidoscope of textures, patterns, colour and showmanship, this isn’t a season for the faint-hearted or the unassuming but it is a season of fairy tales, imagination and romantic defiance. It’s time to take centre stage.
