Introducing A77 Boutique’s latest column, where we will be collating each season’s hottest trends, starting with the catwalk looks that caught our eye for Fall/Winter 2022/23.
To begin with, we saw that, in contrast to previous years, the trends call for an unexpected Mix-and-Match, whereby pieces that do not entirely match each other are ingeniously and harmoniously combined, in a single outfit. The fashion style of the 70s and 80s is still a great source of designer inspiration, however, the trend this year includes a more rock and edgy side, thus encouraging stylistic experimentation.
Fashion Weeks are notorious for their stylistic hyperbole, nevertheless, they shine a light on periodic trends that can be adapted to everyday style, making outfits truly stand out.
So, let’s take a look at what is trending this Fall.
All About Leather or Biker-core:
The first trend which we fell in love with is inspired by the biker lifestyle of the 50s and 60s. This season, leather takes a front row seat as the number one material used by the most famous fashion houses in various forms and trimmings – all the way from glossy to entirely matte, while the vegan, eco-friendly variations had a dominant presence, as expected. It safe to say that the leather jacket one of those timeless pieces that will never cease to be present at fashion shows. What makes it more particular this year is that, beyond the classic black and the conventional brown and earthy colour tones, we saw leather jackets in show-stopping, vibrant colours as well as oversized designs and more tailored fits. Magenta, orange and burgundy leather looks adorned both the catwalks and the streets.
One of the classic jackets that became an all-time favourite returns to the catwalk in its most feminine rendition ever, in varied textures and colours, combining warmth, comfort and style. The puffy, quilted jacket has already stolen the hearts of many fashionistas, ours included, since we cannot wait to be able to wear this piece from am to pm. Being such a beloved item, we just had to find out who the first person to ever design it was. Our research told us that it was Eddie Bauer, an American designer who also created Skyline – the first quilted jacket that appeared in 1936.
