Fashion Month completed last week, and now we took the standard step again to study the various displays for the Spring of 2014 to determine for ourselves what trends had “staying power” for 2014 across all 4 major model capitals.
Naturally, just because a model with an item strolls down a runway doesn’t imply it is going to affect anybody’s taste in apparel. But when you see the same styles repeating themselves in all four model capitals, it can be a safe bet that you will eventually acquire the taste and trend. We sifted thru display after display to consider some trends that will have novelty, worthiness, and stamina to find a way into our closets this upcoming spring: the flying fringe at Altuzarra, Miu Miu, and Dior; the powdery lilac at Prabal Gurung, Wes Gordon, and Burberry, and also at Christopher Kane; the return of traditional knife pleats at Prada, Rochas, and Givenchy; the play of written phrases embroidered or printed along ready-to-wear at Alexander Wang, Erdem, and, ultimately, at Dior.
Not every trend passed the test, however, such as the swingy midi skirts was seemingly omnipresent, or fur coats that didn’t come across as appropriate for spring, or ostrich feathers, which are excellent in theory, but not pragmatic whatsoever. Here are a couple of items I found to be particularly cute that will work for this spring:
Let us know what you think! It’s always nice to hear what others are thinking about the upcoming spring of 2014 and fashion trends!
