A new winter in the pipeline calls for fresh looks and new trends. The season is more nostalgic than ever, with classic looks coming back, emerging from speckled emotions. Be it the Scottish Highlands that embarks on tradition and lineage, a sudden wakefulness of culture and customs spread across the globe or the demure outlines of a woman that classify a lady-like aesthetic in womens wear, all consequent looks have one thing in common- the need to find your individual self.Moving parallel is another clan of youth culture that is abandoning the past and looking into an imaginable - unimaginable future in search of answers, only to create unknown outcomes. Guiding spirits, not to be left unmentioned, are the athletic vibes that are taking over the new millennial consumer with sportswear breaking from its confined notions and touching the comforting lives of a layman.

FUTURISTICIn todays scientific age, technology is no longer bound to the avant-garde. From innovative fabric manipulations to futuristic styling concepts, the digital world is taking this trend by storm. Colours and designs are generated from the world of computers, images are technically treated with the power of digital technology and the internet inspires this trend to become more interactive and 3D. The moulded metal along with the sculpted plastic inspire the digital and monochromatic designs. The colours are refracted and distracted to create a myriad metallic fabrics and sharp visions. Architectural structural rigid forms are derived from the satellite space vehicles.

Metal is being carried into the new season with fresh interpretations and unexpected combinations, bringing along a sense of novelty. Metallic coating, complex mesh structures, smooth impeccable finishes add depth and drama and the starry spaced out prints offer a galactic touch. Traditional silhouettes are sliced and manipulated to create futuristic ones that divide the body with utmost precision feeling compliments the effortless of the final look.

rom stiff leather jackets smothered in a dark palette to metallic sheen radiating on boxy ones, the theme embodiesFsilhouettes rich in texture and character. While cropped biker jackets and drooping peter pan collars create a niche forthe casual, the slithering sequin gowns and mesh inserts on fitted neoprene dresses contribute to the galactic evening. Visibly thick and heavy, the garments lack pleating or drapes and instead embrace zippers and transparent filters on midi length shift dresses, straight fit pants and high collared tops.

SPORTSAn evolving trend being altered through seasons, sportswear for the next Fall continues in a direction of sleek, minimal and luxury, making itself ripe for new interpretations. Evolving to become more subtle and to highlight a rather slick and sportier attitude, the luxe athletic wear is no longer channelling specific sports but is being morphed into an embodiment of casual chic. Minimal look, clean lines, basic silhouettes, rounded shoulder lines in breathable tech fabrics define the macro appeal of the theme. Geometry is explored through sporty cuts being incorporated into elegant silhouettes with mesh panelling. Sporty stripes are being used sparingly, yet not reduced in importance. A subtle touch towards femininity makes the trend rather more diverse than ever.The look is emphasised with comfortable fabrics such as jersey and lycra knits, deluxe nylons, mesh, 3D, pique offset by leather, plastics and perspex offering an inherent persuasiveness. Skirts, tops and dresses, slick sports bras, swimsuit cuts and bodysuits, ribbed hemlines, skater skirts, skinny polo necks, hooded sweatshirts and track pants, all incorporate a blend of sports with high fashion, characterising the new sports couture.

oulded in breathable fabrics, the silhouettes are definitely relaxed with comfort riding high but at the same time sculptedMinto rigid forms to achieve the much needed zing on the tracks. With track pants transcending to chic formalwear andhigh heels, hooded sweatshirts and box pleated skirts arent far behind. Raglan sleeves on sweaters, cropped hybrids of a bomber jacket and mesh tank tops round off the upper separates. Details such as side panelling, drawstrings and elasticised waistbands attribute a sporty flavour to a magnitude of silhouettes- from dresses to shorts to skirts.

KEY SHAPES

FOLKLOREThis story takes from a celebration of tradition the increasing need to recognise your roots and for communities to reconnect. Not just a of static replication the past but rather a dynamic and living entity which evolves with the culture. Inspired by customs, convention, music, tribes, tall tales, myths and legends, the look takes form when cultures overlap. Characterised by a mix and match of high energy patterns and prints with lavish fabrics, Folklore reflects a peoples society. It is expressed through music, dance, drama, craft, sculpture, painting, literature and other means of creativity which generally requires little dependence on high technology. Skill tends to be passed on from generation to generation, and is mostly done by hand or simple machinery.Haphazard patchwork of patterns and prints, multicolour stripes and zigzag designs combined with tropical florals. Silhouettes offer a time honoured approach with gathered full length skirts, off shoulder tops, turmoil of prints and patterns balanced by neat nipped waists, sheath dresses, jackets and cocoon skirts. Elements like fringes, tassels and tribal fur are essential for enhancement.
