Fashion is a serious business, but after so many seasons of stark silhouettes and slick chic, all the dead-pan drama could use a little drama-edy. Fashion should be fun, after all – and what’s wrong with dressing for a little attention?
While many of the fall/winter shows were dark and somber, convivial couture is definitely back, particularly when it comes to novelty fabrications and accessories. From over-the-top trims, like feathers, fur and flocking; to luxe fabrication, like leather and velveteen; the season ahead is full of panache potential.
