Which standout fashion pieces will leave a mark on the street style circuit this year? With Paris Fashion Week Couture Spring 2017 just around the corner, Vogue Arabia pins down three trends that are tipped to be favorites with the front row.
THE NEXT ICONIC ACCESSORY
The must-have bag that will take over the street style circuit this year is an iPhone cover. Unveiled on the runway amid Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2017 collection, the smartphone case features a darted frame and hardware corners. It draws references from Petite Malle, the handbag reminiscent of the French label’s iconic trunks, dreamed up by creative director Nicolas Ghesquière. Expect seasoned fashion month regulars shielding their phones with the label’s monogram print or bold crocodile leather.
THE LITTLE PINK DRESS
The style set are not ready to part ways with pink yet. Paris Fashion Week Spring 2017 flourished with pink frocks from brands such as Céline , Balenciaga, and Valentino. Come fashion month, we anticipate that the four fashion capitals will be flooded with fuchsia, flamingo, and watermelon. For a fashion-forward execution of the trend, think draped silhouettes, midi-length hemlines, and long-sleeve styles.
The ‘80s are back with strong shoulders. The trend that physically stood out for its wide stature on the runway at Saint Laurent, Jacquemus, and Balenciaga took shape with inverted triangle trench coats, blazers, and tops. The shift towards power shoulders on steroids has been on the rise since Vetements‘ proposal of exaggerated sleeves and boxy hoodies. Like the puffer coat, deconstructed shirt, and reimagined denim, the bold-shouldered silhouette commands attention.
