Winter yes please. I must confess that this is my favourite season. It is the best pretext for me to dust off my winter wardrobe and to wear those clothes that they have been waiting for me to be worn, my coats, sweaters, scarves, gloves, hats, jackets and cardigans. Through all collections fall-winter 2015-16 we can see some of rising trends like the use of fur by J.W. Anderson, or the androgynous proposal of Gucci and Loewe, the use oversized clothing in Dries Van Noten and Lanvin, velvet materials by McQueen and the use of animal prints like the collections of Hedi Slimane for Saint Lauren and Burberry. These were some of the many trends for this coming winter, but in this article I will focus on the colour trends, I am picking three exceptional options to wear for this coming winter season.
This colour has appeared in all of the big fashion shows, burgundy is the clear front runner for colour of the season. Winter calls for warm, comforting tones such as the colour of redwine, the marsala (in fact, was the color of 2015 according to Pantone, the color company.). Also I have noticed purple shades showcased by Lanvin, Dior Homme, Valentino, Berluti and Alexander McQueen.
Sand is a brilliant colour, which resembles the colour of desert sand. It may also be regarded as a deep tone of beige. When you think of a Versace man, you may imagine a flamboyant peacock not afraid to outshine the rest. The collection for Fall/Winter 2015-2016 shows all the best this fashion house has to offer. The sets mixes comfy and a little over-sized clothes with those tailored closely to the body with a colour palette reduced, where the sand color was protagonist.
Few seasons ago the camel colour started to be on the radar of the fashionistas. For sure if you are an early-adopter you already might have purchased your camel coat for the current winter. To keep things simple and easy, today’s colour story stars camel, which like navy can serve as a “new neutral” in your wardrobe. With this colour you can build up your style with just about any other colours. Camel tones will look great with just about anything, from black to white, navy blue, red, and grey.
