2019 Trend Forecast
Tie-dye has had a change and is now modernised. Dior has created kaleidoscope versions of tie-dye as well as sometimes layering tie-dye over florals; whereas Prada went for a flouro approach, which reflects a liberated modern woman. On the other hand, Stella McCartney’s take on the tie-dye came in various different versions in a more 70s hippie perspective with blue and white boiler suits, shirts and lace tap shorts.
Mansur Gavriel and Tory Burch proved that matching clothes is going to be a big hit as it will make matching so much easier - all you have to do is match your bag to your dress and then match it to your shoes. With monochromatic designs as well as matching patterns, next season’s latest set of goods will be very easy to pair together to create an extremely sophisticated put together look.
The spring/ summer collections from Carolina Herrera, Pyer Moss, Oscar de la Renta and Brandon Maxwell has presented a colour that will be unforgettable next year. The saturated, sunny colour has brightened up runways and can be called 2019’s It-colour.
Along with the colour marigold, other eye-catching colours have been shown on runways as well. Neon bright items are all over the runway with outfits from Jeremy Scott, Prabal Gurung and Naeem Khan, in numerous shades, which Elle has compared to being alike to a set of highlighters and Vogue themed as ‘California Dreaming.’
Although this isn’t a new item, it is a trend and it has gotten an update at Burberry, where there were many new variations on the classic coat. At Givenchy and Valentino, the classic coat also made an appearance on the runway.
Ruffles dominated last summer and will extend onto 2019. Simone Rocha’s take on ruffles felt off-kilter and YSL’s take had a 1980s Prince appeal whereas Marc Jacobs designed his with dramatic flourishes and feathers.
Although other trends included bright neon colours, beige and contemporary neutrals also made an appearance on runways and will be a trend next year. Riccardo Tisci gave burberry the classic-trench-coat colour, and the neutral was also present in the collections of Max Mara and even Balmain. The trend is to dress head-to-toe in neutrals and beige for a sleek look.
