letter from the editor


it is all around us. it can be natural, it can be man-made. but everything has it. we can touch it and we can feel it. it creates a visual illusion but isn't an illusion. This season is inspired by texture. The feeling in a texture. The physical touch of a texture. The beauty of texture. Social, cultural and environmental factors have a massive role in design and trends. Trends are constantly evolving, each goes and comes back. This report looks at how colours, silhouettes, materials and accessories are brought back and developed for Autumn / Winter 2018/2019. Texture is a key driver for the upcoming season, with heavy materials and strong constructions adding an interesting and sturdy element to silhouettes.

From the detailing of the coat, to the entire silhouette, this season calls for many different uses of shearling. Corduroy will be back on a grander scale, used for jackets and bottoms.With new and developing technology, materials are constantly evolving and advancing in terms of properties and blends. The success of puffer jackets recently continue through the use of quilted materials in the form of accessories now; puffa scarves. The peplum belt acts as a belt and corset in one, enhancing the waistlines.

Shine and neutrals might seem as a juxtaposition, but texture and finish allows for this mix to complement well together. Inspired by the finish and smoothness of sheer materials and textures seen around us, on our hair, and our skin, is reflected in the fabrics and colour trends. The neutrals see a range of de-saturated browns and greys. Millennial pink continues in a natural tone; becoming more rich and earthy. This season asks us to bask in our nature and Shine in Neutrals.
