FY just checked out the new AW ’15 collection at Iconic and came away impressed! I loved the nude trench coats and shift dresses, in a delicious throwback to the late 1960s. Here’s a trend note to take you through the collection:
Very 60’s inspired , this season is the revival of the very sleek and elegant Mod Modernism trend. With easy silhouettes making a strong come back, comfort is everything. Monochrome-Black and White is the hero of the collection with prints like the monochrome grid, brushstroke stripes dominant on key pieces like A-line dresses, midi-skirts, tailored jackets and boxy tops. Fresh colors like pale lime yellow and blue make an appearance to break the color scheme.
Fit and flare dresses, shift dress, trench coats, circle skirts are the ruling pieces in this collection inspired from the 90’s. The trend evolves daywear and sportswear with a very luxe feel to it and graphic elements for some drama. Fabrics such as bonded mesh, scuba, lasercut adds variety in the collection in colors like metallic silver, sulphur spring yellow and jet black.
The evergreen Military vibe is here to stay and this collection showcases the trend with a contemporary feel with a soft daily wear look. Uniform inspired pieces get a luxe finish with the use of luxe materials and details such as patch pockets, epaulettes and tailored belts. Fabrics like silk crepe and cupro are dominant in colors like olive green, orange, yellow and blue. Think manadrin collar maxi dress, Military jacket, military inspired jumpsuit and military skirt with tribe print.
Desire is heightened with this collection that embodies the sexy spirit of women. Expect a romantic look with the richness of lace. It’s all about the glam and oomph with iridescent sequins, hexagonal beading and delicate beading on luxurious fabrics- Chantilly, velvet and lurex tweed. The elegant evening wear can be seen in key colors like evergreen and pirate black with prints like petrol shine adding the gloss touch. Make heads turn when you slip into embellished halter and fish tail maxi dresses, sequins peplum top and pencil skirts and a crop jacket with a tailored jumpsuit.
Street Glam is a ultra-cool look that is fun, playful and perfect for your streetstyle Instagram posts. Edgy yet feminine you will find pieces that have a dominant geometric feel to it accompanied by sequins to give it that extra feminine panache. The very retro check prints which is very American also does a cameo in the range and you can sport an array of colors like blue, silver, grey, orange and black. Sport this look in pieces like joggers, cuff pants and shift dresses.
