Spring Summer 2015 Trend Forecast

As we step into a new season it is the time to analyze the trends we will be seeing and why not make a discussion about it.

One of the things I learned at the university, is trend forecast, and of course that can be done right after the shows in fashion week we don’t need to wait until the clothes hit the stores, in fact we can even predict them before fashion week, with years in advance. In my opinion anyone can do it as there is a common sense and a storyline to the way fashion evolves, so all you really need, is to pay attention. What can be more unpredictable really, is how they evolve, how different people combine them, adapt them, etc, and if this trend will remain and turn into a classic or if this trend will in fact vanish with horror (vanish sound) like the wedge sneakers did.

Vamos entrando en una nueva temporada, así que es un momento perfecto para analizar las nuevas tendencias y por que no abrir una discusión.

Una de las cosas que aprendí en la universidad, es la predicción y análisis de tendencias que puede hacerse justo después de la presentación de las colecciones o bien antes, mucho antes, inclusive con años de antelación. En mi opinion cualquiera puede hacerlo, no hay que ser un experto, no hay más bien tener mucho sentido común y prestar mucha atención. Lo que puede ser mas confuso la verdad es como las tendencias una vez marcadas van evolucionando y van siendo adaptadas por la gente, el nivel de aceptación y si desencadenan en otras nuevas, y lo mas importante si la tendencia en cuestión permanecerá y se convertirá en un clásico o si desaparecerá con cierto horror y arrepentimiento de quienes se embarcaron en ella, como por ejemplo las zapatillas de cuña.

BUCKET BAGS: In my opinion this trend has been present for a long time, I think the re-launch of the Louis Vuitton Noé bags around 2012/2013 started it, and a few months later… we were already facing a trend. Then Mansur Gavriel label decided to re-do that bag with colorful interiors, and after that well every designer decided, you know what? We are gonna do it too. And so now, you can find a bucket bag absolutely anywhere you want, with tiny, different variations, but a the end it is a bucket bag.

Now at this point the trend should be dying and it is not, so I am certain it will now join the classics hall of fame, just like many trends before: boyfriend jeans, kitten heels, midi skirts, etc. (Let’s not forget all classics started out as trends). I think this is a great one, a lovely type of bag, so comfortable and down to earth that it was kind of natural to become a permanent thing.

CHOKERS: What can I say? I don’t really care about them at all! In my opinion they have always been present in a way or another, and that they are big now, well, could be visually dangerous. Accessories tend to do a lot of visual damage, they can powerfully destroy an outfit and make it just too much in a more evident way than clothing can, so I would stay away of this one, unless it is a classic silver/gold piece, with no additions.

SEVENTIES: There is something interesting about this era, even though it is not my favorite, and I think what is interesting about it, is the evolution of the stylish people and fashion icons of the sixties. How did they survive a somewhat extravagant period? Some items from this era, are beautiful of course, but I am not specially fond of it in general terms. Yes to long hair and flow dreamy dresses, no to anything disco and mens long hair dos.

What do you think?

—————————————————————————————————————————-

BOLSOS TIPO CUBO: En mi opinión esta tendencia no es nueva, lleva presente varios años desde creo recordar el 2012/2013 cuando Louis Vuitton re-lanza al mercado su icónico bolso Noé. La tendencia se consolida unos meses mas tarde, cuando se vuelve popular la marca Mansur Gavriel con sus bolsos casi idénticos a los de Vuitton (diferentes solo por sus colores inusuales en su interior y a precio bastante mas accesible). Una vez llegados a este punto cada marca existente comenzó a sacar a la venta bolsos en este modelo, en mi opinión personal las pequeñas variantes no distraen del hecho de que todos nacen a partir del maravilloso diseño de la casa Louis Vuitton.

Pasado el tiempo esta tendencia debería estar muriendo pero, todo lo contrario se esta volviendo cada vez mas fuerte pasando a formar parte de los nuevos clásicos, como muchas tendencias lo han hecho en el pasado (recordemos que todo clásico comenzó como una tendencia). Ejemplos de este fenómeno: vaqueros estilo boyfriend, zapatos de medio tacón, faldas midi, etc. Me parece estupendo que los bolsos tipo cubo alcanzasen tanta fuerza, es un tipo precioso de bolso, muy cómodo y práctico, pensado para todo el mundo.

CHOKERS: Que puedo decir? La verdad es que no me interesan mucho, no soy muy de accesorios y menos de este estilo. Creo que este tipo de joya ha estado siempre presente de una forma u otra, y que sea lo más ahora, no es algo excesivamente positivo, ya que puede resultar visualmente agresivo. Los accesorios tienen mucho poder sobre un conjunto y pueden llegar a destruir su atractivo en una milésima de segundo haciéndolo parecer excesivamente recargado. Yo intentaría evitar esta tendencia a no ser por alguna excepción, una pieza simple sin añadidos en plata u oro.

AÑOS SETENTA: Hay algo interesante sobre esta década, aun que no es de mis favoritas, lo que veo tan interesante es la transición de los íconos de moda de los sesenta a los setenta. Como sobrevivieron una época un tanto extravagante? Algunos elementos de esta era son fabulosos pero en general no veo los setentas como una época visualmente atractiva. Sí a los vestidos largos y románticos, sí al pelo larga y liso, pero un gran no, a las melenas en los hombres con sus patillas largas y sin duda un gran no a lo brillante rollo disco.

Besides the wigs on the models, I am in love with everything in this collection. It is very feminine, grannish and childish at the same time, all characteristics I am drawn to in fashion. Remember how a couple of days ago I was telling you how big a fan I am of midi skirts? Well this collection focuses on mid length. Part of the coolness it exudes is because of how relaxed and comfortable this len ...

Pictures of two weeks ago, from Jil Sander Navy Spring Summer 2015 Presentation at Beverly Hills. I have always been a Jil Sander (and Jil Sander Navy) fan. The label is one of those that is always keeping the same line, the same aesthetic updating details each season, but never changing the direction. I value that among all things in a person or label, or just in general, but of course that is no ...

Margaret Howell’s Spring Summer 2015 early season has arrived! As the biggest fan I of course was very intrigued to see the first pieces. Some designers don’t do Resort and Pre-Fall so releasing early pieces of the Spring Summer collection is their way of introducing us to what is about to come. I am in love with this small preview, it is all very classic, casual with unexpected touche ...

Today I am wearing my new trousers (not THAT new), that I got in L.A a few months ago. They were a garment that I was dying to add to my wardrobe since last summer. Wide, silk, flowy, light fabric, black pants are the best, most comfortable, most classic and versatile garment, oh!…and elegant too!…that you can wear during hot weather. I wanted trousers that would be actually suitable f ...

As I told you months ago, this year a big project of mine was to experience the emerging fashion weeks around the world. I started with LAFW and now it was the turn for CPHFW. To be honest it was an amazing experience because not only was this my first time in Copenhagen but also the first time attending this fashion week, and as a great admirer of Scandinavian fashion, specially Danish fashion, t ...

Instead of showing the actual runway looks, today I decided to focus on the details. As much as I love Chanel, I am not very fond of the styling, it is very anti-Coco really, too much, always. Almost all the garments are exquisite but I think the appreciation of them gets lost with all the fuzz going on with the added elements, and sometimes even the background. And that is the case in this collec ...

Instead of sharing with you my favorite collection from Milan Fashion Week, you’ll have to excuse me, but this time i’m skipping it because I did not like any of them. At least not completely. I did like some garments, maybe one or two from some collections, but overall, none of them fit my style or my taste. That’s why i’m going back to New York Fashion Week and I am shari ...

Los crop tops o belly tops pertenecen a esa lista de «prendas que juré que jamás rescataría de mi oscuro pasado», y sin embargo los diseñadores y desde hace unos meses también el street style se empeñan en volverlas a poner de moda. Que Dios nos pille confesados. Todos recordamos ese período de los 90?s en el que las camisetas ombligueras campaban a sus anchas por revistas, pasarelas e incluso esc ...
