Fashion Week Runway Spring 2019 – Spring 2019 Fashion Trends
Whether you’re the type to get all dolled up, don feathers, embrace an under-the-sea vibe, toss on some biker shorts and a blazer, or keep it utilitarian, there’s a trend for you in the Spring collections. See what designers have in store for Spring.
Alexander McQueen Spring fashion Show
In the age of everything fast, instant, immediate, and of-the-moment, Sarah Burton is consistently looking back into history for inspiration to create modern versions of clothes you’ll cherish. Heirloom-level craftsmanship is nothing new for McQueen, nor is inspiration from ages past, but Burton took inspiration from today’s female empowerment movement and threw it back in time, finding inspiration from women in history and their milestones–like christenings, weddings, funerals, and key rights of passage.
Chain and leather corset details adorned both suits and romantic dresses. To Burton, it’s the woman that makes the clothes and the clothes that make the woman–and limiting oneself to a single facet, be it feminine, romantic, ethereal, strong, bold, brave, or daring when getting dressed need not apply.
Chanel Spring fashion Show
If you’re planning the most-luxe summer trip, head to Chanel and stock up on biker shorts, summer suiting, loads of accessories, and cocktail options you can wear from the beach club to the boardwalk.
The show’s branded shirting and cardigans are going to be must-haves, as are the array of hats, piped nautical blazers, and “CHANEL” branded belts.
Moschino Spring fashion Show
You don’t have to go far to find someone in fashion bemoaning the slapdash, quick-thrills pressure of designing for the instant gratification Instagram consumer. Some designers respond by bowing out completely. Others change the model a little. Jeremy Scott? He’s made a mockery of it. Spring 2019 was scribbled, sketched, and paraded out in all its tongue-in-cheek “unfinished” glory.
True, if it weren’t so meticulously done, it may have been a touch on-the-nose. But the visual jokes landed and the clothes were pretty—guaranteed those scrawled nylons will be everywhere—as they are wont to do in Scott’s universe. A raw bolt of fabric is a strange train, a giant measuring tape is a ruffled collar, a blown-up thimble is a fez, a pin cushion is a cheeky crown. An architectural scissor gown is a wonder, a searing testament to Scott’s outsized talent.
Max Mara Spring fashion Show
“Max Mara is about timeless, high-quality clothes. You may not buy a coat every season, but when you do, you keep it and then pass it on.” The monochrome-mania in the Max Mara palette of tobacco neutrals, white, polka dots and navy with a shot of yellow, because, why not?
Many of the jackets were rainproof, whether by nature of the impeccable weave of the navy trench with a ruffled hem that closed the show or due to coatings, such as the yellow overcoat made from ultra-light rubberized jersey.
Fendi Spring fashion Show
Silvia Venturini Fendi described the collection as “very real clothes for a busy woman, very functional, practical.” The show was, by Fendi standards, low-key, the lineup, true to billing, a collection for real life. As such, it featured those familiar real-world tropes with which high fashion has become obsessed — utility and sport.
At the core, a polished tailoring-sportswear fusion, the propriety of the former taken down a notch or two — and its volume often pumped up — with all those carry-all pockets, Lagerfeld made the point with the first look out: a clear plastic raincoat trimmed in brown leather, including two huge pockets, atop a pristine white underpinning flaunting unfussy ruffles. Giant pockets would variously take over the bodice of a high-neck blouse, puff up the hips of a zip-front leather dress, and show up as well in the expected places on jackets, coats and cargo pants.
Alberta Ferretti Spring fashion Show
The collection was filled with pretty clothes — part hippie dips, part street utility, all immaculately crafted with classic know-how — that were much more dressed-down than what Ferretti is typically known for. Naive doily lace tops, jumpsuits and tent dresses in pink and blue pastels were mixed with baggy tapered trousers, saggy crochet bell-bottoms and denim jackets with maximal utility pockets.
Oversize tailoring and the ethereal pleated sundresses that rang true to Ferretti heritage were mixed in, as were gigantic straw backpacks.
