FASHION TRENDS FOR FALL / WINTER 2018

 

Hot off the catwalks of fashion week, style mavens are lusting over these latest trends.

 

 

Each season, fashion capitals across the globe play host to the Olympics of style, as insiders travel all over the city to attend the latest shows and events of fashion week. It is a time that is brimming with creativity and inspiration – where a single look on the runway or on the street can be snapped and immediately shared to the world in a matter of seconds. 

For a slice of the action, visit The Promenade Shops at Galaxy Macau, a luxury destination that distills the best of what fashion week has to offer. The mall showcases the best of bold and inspirational trends, straight from the catwalks of Paris and Milan, whilst showcasing must-have pieces that will elevate every wardrobe. 

 

 

 

1. The Luxury Capelet

Not quite a shrug, not quite a jacket, the capelet adds a touch of elegance and sophistication for the grown-up lady. Typically, this is a garment best worn to high tea or at a cocktail party. For bold personalities, Moschino’s black fur version is fabulous 60s fashion at its finest. A cute pillbox hat and tapered Mary Jane heels well go well with this look. Alternatively, Fendi infuses what is traditionally a feminine garment with strong masculine undertones, with an oversized collar and zipper.

 

       

 

 

 

2. The Under-Cover Up

Taste is often about creating unexpected combinations that will change one’s eye. This has certainly been the mantra for Miuccia Prada, who has pioneered the movement of “ugly chic” since the start of her career. The trend can be interpreted in many ways - but perhaps the most alluring this season is the under-cover up – a seemingly skimpy piece of clothing that is worn over something much more substantial and chunky. Prada’s black bustier is prime example of this. The garment showcases the figure, whilst keeping an air of mystery with a feminine dress underneath. Otherwise, try Louis Vuitton’s button-up slip over a long-sleeved knit dress, for a rare marriage that combines femininity with comfort. 

 

       

 

 

 

3. Wild Colors

The allure of vibrant colors is not only recognized, but celebrated in the animal kingdom. Think emerald peacocks, majestic butterflies, and stately orchids. Fashion itself is no different, with street style stars grabbing attention on the runway with colors that can catch the eye of sleuthing street style photographers. Worn head-to-toe, this trend makes a powerful statement, and is certainly not for the faint of heart. Burberry’s fans will love the dress featuring floral embroidery which pays homage to Mother Nature. Otherwise, a more eclectic choice would be the oversized print dress by Moschino. Maximalists who believe that more is more will also take a fancy to Versace, where bold primary colors come in plaid and argyle renditions. 

 

                

 

 

 

4. The Haute Secretary

Reinventing the office look is often a fine balance between style and propriety. Thankfully, visionary designers like Phoebe Philo for Céline have paved the way for a bevy of menswear-inspired pieces that are perfectly office appropriate. Fendi’s oversized jacket is one such example, and is paired with a pale yellow shirt for a subtle pop of color. In this look, Karl Lagerfeld plays with volume and proportion to create a look that feels effortless and refreshing. For a more unexpected option, try Louis Vuitton’s button up jacket. The brass button detailing adds a touch of luxury, with a flared waist giving the illusion of an hourglass figure.
