Sportswear has been a major womenswear trend for several seasons. This showed no sign of waning during the recent fashion month, with lots of sports-inspired details seen on elegant and feminine silhouettes or sometimes on highly sophisticated looks.
For SS18, this is characterized by flat shoes – sometimes even sneakers – as well as technical fabrics used alongside luxury fabrics, shorts worn with glam blazers, and soccer jerseys or polo shirts worn as dresses and matched with refined accessories and details.
Seen at Off-White, Koché, Lacoste, Burberry, Atsushi Nakashima, The-Sirius, Annakiki, Jour/Né.
The season’s sensual styles put transparency at the heart of spring/summer 2018.
Long skirts and lightweight dresses feature sheer layers, while tops, blouses and dress bodices come in see-through lace, revealing everything beneath, or sometimes preserving modesty with strategically placed patches. Low-cut necklines and décolletés are popular too.
Seen at Christopher Kane, Emilia Wickstead, Calvin Klein, Prabal Gurung, Zadig & Voltaire, Les Copains, Blumarine, Saint Laurent.
Spring/summer 2018 collections featured lots of denim jackets, shirts and pants, as well as high-waist darted pants, satin and shiny fabrics, glittery details and garments with striking shoulders – all echoing fashion trends of the 1980s.
Seen at Lacoste, Gucci, Versace, Tom Ford, Topshop.
From the Queen of Hearts at Dolce & Gabbana and American comics at Prada, to Annakiki’s critique of smartphones and social networks, Andy Warhol’s pop art and Vogue magazine covers at Versace, or tiny toys on hoods and in hair at Comme des Garcons – references to culture and to everyday objects were legion on the SS18 runways.
