What will remain of the FW 2017/2018 fashion weeks? During these crazy and amazing last days I took note for you. And here’s some trick to enter the heart of Fashion Weeks, which is a bit like entering my own heart, as I definitely left it on those catwalks. First of all, I want to tell you something that probably anybody who took part to fashion weeks must have noticed. Fashion can do politics, it can express precise messages and fight stereotypes through its aesthetic and deeply emotional language. We saw it with the amazing Halima Aden, a 19 year old model from Somalia who walked on Max Mara and Alberta Ferretti’s catwalks wearing her hijab.
Moreover we saw it at Grinko’s show, when Sergei Grinko and his partner Filippo Cocchetti ended the show walking the catwalk along with their children born through heterologous fecundation.
Never like during this year fashion proved us its love for the womanly world. That’s how it is. What will women look like in 2018? They will look like women. And future is in their hands, just like Bella Hadid’s t-shirt claimed during Prabal Gurung’s show.
We are talking about a woman that is not scared anymore of adopting manly features, who has absorbed them and turned them into a new aesthetic code.
This can be confirmed by trends that will be fashionable next winter. New volumes, overlaps, unusual matches, nude looks, experimentation. Among must-haves, flowery dresses, but in warm and autumn inspired tones.
Loose dresses imply another trend: comfort, that inspires a cozy glamorous style, sometimes sporty sometimes rock. The main color was definitely pink, not only for dresses but even as regards accessories.
In any case bright and energetic shades are the most popular. Say goodbye to dark outerwear: make room to colorful coats, with classic cuts but that, once in a while, get covered in pic.
Winter also welcomes total white, mostly during the day. For the night, instead, animalier patterns with shiny decorations will be very trendy.
Even low manly or pointed shoes, in precious leather, are back in fashion. And also collegial style, that is mixed with the everlasting denim trend (sometimes even total denim). Last tip not to underestimate: messages to be worn. As we were saying, fashion owns its vision of the world and can communicate it through messages, hashtags and protest sentences written on sweaters and t-shirts.
