August Metro Fashion Column – AW2013 Trend Agenda

Hi all,

Whisty Fashin Column Aug 2013 Header

Here’s August’s Metro Fashion Blogger column.

Twice a year fashion writers jump over themselves to write about the new season collections and trends. Me included. Every august, post summer sale-fervour, the time comes to study the Autumn/Winter trends. I always find myself thinking it’s just too early; surely we still have weeks of sunshine left, in which to enjoy our summer wardrobe? Then I find myself fidgeting in pastel chiffon dresses, craving cosy wool layering and edgy winter separates.

Happily, the top three A/W’13 trends in the new season’s Trend Agenda are transitional; allowing you to hint that you’ve been studying the catwalk, rather than boast. No one likes a know-it-all. Adding one of these key A/W trends to your late-summer wardrobe will refresh your look; rather than give it an ‘I-got-it-before-you’ (zzzzzzzzzz) arrogance.

Pink Coats; a huge trend seen at Céline, Jonathan Saunders and Simone Rocha, are a buy now wear now A/W’13 trend. Pink coats came in dozens of shapes; overcoat, Crombie, cocoon and tailored; this trend is all about the shade. Pale, rose, frosted and dusky made up the palette of pink at shows last February. This Penneys/Primark Crombie-style coat (Pictured €40) sets off the pretty shade with masculine tailoring.

High-Shine Shoes; patent leather was seen on the feet of models in collections from Christopher Kane to Prada to Chanel. Black high-shine is here in a big way. These patent leather loafers from Pied a Terre (pictured available at Arnotts, €175) combine high-shine with classic loafers – flats (anything but ballet) are high on the A/W12 trend agenda – see Michael Kors, Boss and Louis Vuitton.

Leather Skirts; This season the leather skirt is either full-on voluminous or sleek and tight, but always comes past the knee. Calvin Klein and Prada – in bright red – created glorious full skirts while Simone Rocha created the pencil skirt in super high-shine. This is a leather take on the Hitchcockian screen siren; cinch in waists or team with oversize sweaters. Fran and Jane’s silver leather pencil skirt (pictured €119) gets it right.

I’m ready. Bring on the new season… just bit by bit.
