It’s almost fall/winter season in Thailand. Although not much variation is felt in our weather innuendos, nonetheless, fall is a period of closeness, social vibrancy, invitations and charming events comme d’habitude.
We all know and we perhaps are intuitively preparing ourselves for these obligations; in a wardrobe sense, in our accessories sense and in the sense of plainly put ’keeping up with the times, the style times …’
I was thinking how to refresh my style and ideas for this fall season? There’s a lot of new choices, trends and window displays are dazzling with new fabrics and cuts. What is in and what colours for us Bangkokian fashionistas, what should we focus on when doing some virtual shopping? I want to get the right thing and probably get the things right too. Style matters, especially when it comes to “acte social” of dresses, accessories and style.
The monsieur should be kept impressed … Let’s see the many colour outlines and cuts … feels like 80s.
Having a look at the FW2017 runways, it all comes clear to me: here are the major trends I have to focus on this autumn/winter 2017 season: You are free to add and make suggestions.
Red and chocolate brown:
In the summer season mix of 2017, red was mixed with some leading colours and styles in almost every accessories and clothing’s at the major brands especially by Gucci. This season the red remains a dominant tone of fall 2017 too. Wearing red from top to toe is noticeably the next big thing, and I challenge you to do that while shopping at the mall. Red was seen at Oscar De La Renta to Givenchy, Armani, oversized coat from Dolce to finally, over the knee red boots by Fendi. Another major colour to wear this season is brown. Brown is the new black for this fall. Many major brands are using it amongst others there was Balmain, Pucci and Moschino.
Furs and nylon coats:
Vintage style furs. Just the basic style, as if they were borrowed from grandma’s wardrobe. A must wear for the cold winter. Seen in Celine, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors FW17 runways. As for the nylon coats, they are always nice, stylish and chic. The best solution for travelling into countries with rain.
High Victorian style collars are very in. Shakespeare style shirts, very classic high collar dresses were seen this season on runways, mixed with modern materials and patents. You’ll wear like the older sister but be the younger one. Always want to feel young. You know what I mean. Hmm, check out Galliano and Kenzo on this.
Again for this season the floral is in, but for winter more like the couch or window vintage style florals from tops to chic gowns. Also spotted in many brands the Russian doll style look, from top to toe applying the strong colours like Gucci, Altuzarra and Kate Spade. Don’t you have to attend that tea gathering at The Oriental or the Sunday fun chat at Gaysorn.
Oversized shoulders and the deconstructed looks:
This season is more like borrowing your grandfather 80s suits. The shoulder pads are must this season. Some brands like Ports 1961 and DVF and Wang went on mixing materials, cutting shoulders. In other words, using old and classic pattern into new modern way. Express your romanticism through your shoulders. See Dries Van Noten.
Formal velvet and glitters:
This FW17 formal dresses are the full velvet look or full glitters. Using the winter colours like red, navy blue, yellow or the mustard colour, many brands like Jason Wu, Neil Barret, and Aquilano Rimondi used these rich colours. Ladies, this is something to wear for your soirees. You know, the long sexy dress which reveal your fine silky figure when you walk into ballroom … gets noticed and starts drawing in the conversations. Please don’t forget the right perfume. Hashtag’ feminine.
Mid-length skirts/cowboy style/fun suits:
Some others trends that you can take out of your wardrobe and use it for this season are: the mid length with full flouncy skirts. Seen at Dior, Victoria Beckham and Valentino. The cowboy style is creating novel ideas for this season at notably Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang and Balmain. As for the fun suits, it continues from the last season to the upcoming one, yet the colours are more cosy and mixed with suede material.
Wide belts and belted coats: Wide waist belts on top of dresses, pullovers, pants and jackets and a must is on top of coats. Classics stretched.
Fishnets as tights: This time instead of under the torn denims, we see the fishnet tights under the feminine dresses. Fantasy extended.
Retro hats: Heavyweights for this season with vintage textile and look. Headwear articulated.
Glittery boots: This elevating boot trend will make you feel like a shining star. We’ve seen Rihanna wearing the Saint Laurent ones. Chanel pairs reminds us of the 80s thriller fashion zones. Foot fetish instigated.
Western ambiances, authority dresses, colours and accessories. So you need to build your conversationalist tone and feelsome topics ladies. Be ready to feel, wear and act confidently because the trend karma is in our direction. Being inspired and setting your couture ideals will be important in fall/winter 2017 season. You need to represent that dashing je vis librement charisma inside with the glitterati boots and jet-set character. Don’t stay shy, it’s your time to charm and feel awesome. Sip the Champagne and get your services sharpened because this fall we’ll be rocking together.
That all from me Talar,
#Be_A_Starlette for now.
