Editor’s Note The Jacquemus fall/winter 2018 fashion show was one of the best reviewed shows of the season, but it wasn’t just his incredible draping that made the show memorable. The optimism that surronds Jacquemus is a breath of fresh air in the middle of such uncertain political climate. As an election year , 2020 will likely be shrowed with the hope of a changing tide and fashion will begin to reflect that. The autumn/winter 19/20 season is all about new beginnings. We are moving away from complicated or utilitarian colors that make a statement to color palettes that inspire hope, signify change, and emphasize a youthful exuberence.


Blank Sl a te . While you can’t forget the past, you can wipe your slate clean for a fresh start. These neutrals are fresh, clean, and unfussy. They are simple, sophisticated, and have a timeless elegance. They do not draw attention to themselves, but instead what is wrapped up inside making this palette perfect for those who want to be seen for who they are not what they wear.

Pri mar y Je w e l s . Just as the primary colors are the base of all color, 2020 is the base of change as an election year. These strong jewel toned hues of the primary colors parallel the need for change. It is a no bullshit approach to color while still holding onto notes of optimism, hope, and youth.
