At any time of the passage of time, the new fashion trend in 2017 has been gradually released. Paris Fashion Week shows you how to take your power suit game up a notch.
The trouser suit is making its mark again. Right now we’re in the middle of Paris Fashion Week S/S17 and key themes are already emerging from the shows. Spotted at Chloe, Lanvin, Jacquemus, Anne Sofie Madsen, Dries Van Noten and Vionnet; it was all about The New Trouser suit.
The masculine trouser suit evolves for S/S 17 with new and revised proportions. Designers play with varying lengths of jackets from cropped to mid-thigh, while an accent on shoulders is exaggerated with a 1980s sensibility, drawing focus to the waist. Trousers are worn high and are cut in silky crepes and soft cotton drills, emphasising full volume.
Androgyny in the new year, it both the continuous development, there has been innovation.Not only that, the high street fashion brands are also using this retro design style.
The Topshop brand had much to celebrate this London Fashion Week; from a new location space (Spitalfields Market) to a new retail model (see now, buy now). The Topshop Unique show dazzled crowds in London with an 80s inspired collection, pieces of which were available to purchase directly after the show.
The clothes themselves took inspiration from the London fashion markets in the 80s “a time when individualism roared through the city to the soundtrack of punk and New Wave at the iconic venues Camden Palace and Blitz”. To reflect this 80s style, models came down the catwalk in tops with shoulder pads, body con dresses and dresses with thigh high splits, plus zebra print sheer blouses that screamed 80s power dressing businesswoman. The soundtrack was also suitably 80s.
