Among other things (read FIFA WC), the last few days were about glittery runways and eye-catching street style. Yes, we’re talking about Paris Fashion Week SS19. From basics in high saturated hues to tweaks that instantly elevate a staple, here are all the trends you need to look out for - according to the collections seen at PFW.
1. Suits With Sneakers
We already told you that suits in all colours and shades are having a moment this year. At PFW, the two-piece featured yet another upgrade - yes, suits with sneakers are officially a thing now. The boardroom essential takes it to the streets with deconstructed styles and shoes that instantly give it a relaxed vibe. The trend got its seal of approval from Louis Vuitton and Dior Homme.
2. Trench Coats
The basic trench has taken a backseat thanks to the revamped version of the staple. Alexander McQueen’s take on the trench features oversized styles, colour blocked details and experimental fabrics. Are you ready for the 2019 trench coat?
3. Saturated Hues
Louis Vuitton believes in the power of colour and its collection at the SS19 runway is proof of that. The label brings back saturated hues in a more statement-making fashion than ever seen before. Think neon green pants, bright red overcoats and cyan blue jackets. Acne Studios and Hermes joined the colourful parade of bright layers as well!
4. Waist Cinching Styles
Waist cinching didn’t limit itself to the trench coats this year. While Alexander McQueen saw the trend majorly in trenches, LV dived deeper into the detail and featured it on utilitarian jackets too. Going by the two labels, anything that gathers at the waist is a must for layering in 2019.
5. Weekenders & Fanny Packs
While weekender bags have evolved from the basic leather essential to a high-fashion accessory, fanny packs have drifted from the waist and moved towards the shoulder. LV’s take on the weekender bags ranged from all white to clear ones with a unicorn sheen while Dior Homme played with texture and gave the basic weekender a cannage effect. Valentino took the fanny pack up a notch with text and logos.
