AW ’15 Fashion Month Round Up: Color Trends

Tracking fashion month has been an arduous, yet pleasuring task. It takes a while to digest a months’ worth of new creations from all of my favorite, as well as new designers. In the meantime, I have pulled a few color trends noted from the AW ’15 shows.

I am so intrigued with old Hollywood glamour (it is my favorite modern era style of dress) that I literally squealed at the sight of each look. The sophistication and femininity of this collection. I loved nearly every look!

While Mr. Valli said the inspiration encompassed sentiments of the late 60s, early 70s, it it said that his mood board contain vintage photos of Diana Vreeland during the 30s and 40s.Yes, I feel it!

He definitely hit the hammer on the head.

Men don’t go through arduous cycles of trends the way women do, but what does change with men is how they carry on with business. Today’s workforce no longer requires a black suit and tie. Men now have the freedom to switch things up by wearing sneakers with their suits, or bomber jackets with a nice trouser. I believe that Alber Elbaz has captured this in this collection. This was by far my favorite collection of the season.

Olivier Rousteing said that this collection was more him than ever, and was inspired by seventies-era skiers and race car drivers. The sentiment totally resonated with me, as it reminds me of a vain, foreign exchange jock student. I was especially impressed by the elaborate beading and leather weaving.
