Our 6 Favourite SS20 Trends

There have been so many new trends this Spring/Summer 2020 season but we’ve chosen our favourite six that we look forward to seeing.

Neon Lights 

We can’t really put our finger on one colour of the season but Valentino has definitely had a bright idea with a neon outburst. We’ve seen looks in Stabilo green, fuchsia and bright yellow which have been said to bring ‘more joy’ according to Christopher Kane who once said “i love neon, it’s so loud and obnoxious”. These colours are even being used for costumes for example in Olga Neuwirths adaptation of a Virginia Woolf novel, back in December 2019. 

We’re glowing, (literally).

Suits Me 

If you were looking for a sign to purchase a tailored suit, here it is! This season designers like Givenchy are channelling a new take on the raw, boyish energy with the shorts suit, thanks to Ian Griffith’s desire to dress women assassins. You might be sceptical now, but imagine them paired with a Michael Kors blazer, a logical trend.

Keeping the Cut Outs 

Have you ever wanted to expose your mid-section or a triangle under your sternum? Oscar de la Renta and Emporio Armani are on it. Rick Owens even displayed this in one of his shows that mixed twisted princess dresses with politics in Paris’s Palais de Tokyo. It’s not know to be sexy, but more unusual.

Get Trenched

The well known trench coat doesn’t show any signs of disappearing this season, this  is a practical, goes with everything, timeless piece of outerwear. This season it comes in fresh colours like spearmint for Balenciaga, silver for JW Anderson, for Louis Vuitton there’s been ‘70’s cuts and corsages, and glossy finishes for Junya Watanabe.

Denim Display 

This season brings a new crop of blue jeans, starting with Bermuda shorts from Chanel to kick flares from Celine or up-cycled grunge from Givenchy. Check out Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga for tips on how to pull off a double denim look.

Shirtified 

The button down is back on the agenda for a minimalist look and its easy to recreate the runway look as it’s components are already in your wardrobe.  From to the floor skirts from Dior and leather trousers from Lacoste, to corduroys from Alberta Ferretti and mini dresses from Versace. Valentino are treating the white shirt as ‘a couture sensibility’ and say a white shirt dress with frills at the cuffs is as close to heaven as they’re gunna get this season.
