Shemayne Yarde looks at the trends which are taking the current season by storm.
Let’s not forget about the men this season. Right now, it’s all about loungewear for them. The trend is inspired by pyjamas, with loose fits and light fabrics which gave a relaxed and effortless look to any outfit. Fashion brand Acne’s loungewear exudes style with a profusion of stripes and silks. Other designers went above and beyond with this trend by pairing key items with long robes and slipper inspired shoes.
Belgian fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester’s SS13 collection has a literal twist on this season’s must have trend. Using lots of silks and purples she created a slightly sinister air which continues on from the mood of her previous collection. Models took the runway in billowing trousers and velvet suits that gave them an air of Gothic morning-after decadence.
