AW16 trend Velvet
AW16 trend velvet is going to be on top of the fashion chart this upcoming fall and you can start shopping from the latest AW16 catwalk inspirations
An occurring theme in 2016 is the glamour factor- so anything that shines, glimmers, is complicated and sophisticated goes. It looks like we rewinding back a century and rediscovering the Paris in the early 20th century. Part of this inspiration fast forwards to the glamour 80s, the decade where there was no shame to show money and excess. This autumn/winter 2016 shows the exact same trend, luxurious delicate fabrics in as many shapes and forms as possible.
Valentino’s collection is the perfect example of this early 20th century flashback, only Julliard meets Anna Karenina, as glamorous ballerinas were the key look of the show. What started with the miu miu ballet shoe has now turned into a fetish every woman obsesses about because the inner girl inside us loves ballerinas.
Then we turn to the artist and to the poet, represented spectacularly by Rochas, decadent velvet in deep winter colors is a must. Think Tom Ford for Gucci in early 2000s, a suite worn by Demi Moore for one of his adds- it is all coming back in in a less sexy and more boho way.
Viva le 80s- big jumpers, maxi skirts and fizzy hair- then glam it up by 360 degrees and you get what Joseph is showcasing for their AW16 show. Maxi velvet skirts are an absolute must have this season.
