As the Fall ’09 collections approach, fashion followers wait with bated breath to see which trends they will be following for the next season. That’s all well and good, but I like a little more challenge — Here’s what I’m hoping to see next week and why.
building upon the peplums and exaggerated hips of last season’s Balenciaga, Chanel, and Burbery Prorsum collections, I’m looking forward to more all-over volume in outerwear to complement the stark economically-inspired minimalism about to rain down on us. The key, I think, is rounded lines and an emphasis on texture.
And underneath all that volume? Something gorgeous, yet simple. Demure, but not to the point of austerity — something along the lines of Marios Schwab’s beautifully draped modern maxi.
With less than a week left until the shows begin, I’m curious — who are you most looking forward to and what are you expecting?
