SS09 Runway Report

Hello all,

Recession-aware fashion houses understand that trends are hard to manage in hard times. When the chips are down, ‘recessionistas’ (those who dresses stylishly on a budget) understand that clothes can’t be the throwaway pieces that we’ve become accustomed to. They need to last until the good times roll again. Here’s the key: this season it isn’t about trends, it’s about style. The word is that although women will always buy the things they love, this season, they will buy things that they will love for a lifetime. Here are two very different styles to indulge in this season.

’40s Glamour

Luxuriant fabrics in pretty, feminine colours, combined with texture and exquisite tailoring, mean that this trend produces stylish feminine pieces that will last a lifetime. Think grandmother’s post-WWII elegance and red-lipstick chic with a modern edge. Marc Jacobs created this style with pretty silk blouses, cinched-in waists and demure yet coquettish hats. Luella did cropped blouse sleeves and trouser legs in florals and candy stripes, accessorised with cute veils and short leather gloves.

Rock Star

From ’70s glam rock to goth splendour, rock goddesses have always influenced this ageless style. Hi-shine leggings in a myriad of colours teamed with classic leopard-print and fringing are the order of the day. In a nod to Aerosmith, Anna Sui teamed iridescent, metallic capes; studded gladiator sandals; and fringed scarves with tousled hair and embellished, black mini-dresses to emphasise the contrast. Balmain did drummer-boy jackets à la Michael Jackson teamed with that ’80s rock-star staple, faded ripped denim, and embellished everything from shoes and belts to dresses and trouser legs in crystals and studs.
