THIS YEAR’S AUTUMN/WINTER FASHION COLLECTIONS DRAW INSPIRATION FROM THE MUSES OF THE 1970S, REVISITING THE CLASSICS IN MODERN AND ENERGETIC NEW FORMS.


A-line skirt

The subtle yet free-spirited fashion palette seen on French movie posters of the 1970s and 80s has been recreated by designer Hedi Slimane in Celiné’s 2019 Autumn/Winter Collection, featuring slightly flared knee-length A-line skirts made from warm felt. This classic design is a simple yet stylish item to mix and match with a blouse and a patterned scarf or a casual sweater, boots and an overcoat, making a perfect look for a winter stroll. The A-line skirt is not only a favorite of Celiné, but also a popular item in this year’s collections by Chloé, Victoria Beckham and Marc Jacobs.

Suit

Half a century ago witnessed the rise of feminism, which was manifested in women’s fashion in styles such as the bold yet alluring look of the men’s suit. Worn with high heels to aim for a more feminine look, this outfit is a classic choice for women with personality. A pantsuit worn with a loose sweater is also highly stylish as well as practical. Suits have made a splash this season in alluring designs by Celiné and Balenciaga.

Cloaks

As practical as the overcoat, a must-have item for winter, cloaks this year take on a classic look thanks to details such as loose cuts or a wider flare all to increase comfort and allow more freedom in mixing, matching and layering. Designers have been clever in their use of a belt or a hook on the shoulder to define the form of the cloak, as seen in items by Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs and Celiné, all with sharp designs and cuts.

Patent leather

The trend of disco music at the end of the 1970s made its way into fashion in a number of ways, such as the use of patent leather. This year, the material makes a comeback on the catwalk for Autumn/Winter collections, but in a subtler and more practical form. From wide leg trousers instead of  tights and flared trousers from a collection by BOSSto A-line skirts by Balenciaga and jumpsuits by Celiné, the main looks of this season seem to be the elegance of wearable fashion
