/ July 2nd, 2014 / There are currently 0 comments
Our High Summer pieces are flying off the shelves and our Summer Sale has just started, but for those of you who are already thinking ahead to Autumn Winter, here is a selection of some of the gorgeous pieces that will be lining the rails at bod & ted in the coming season. This week has seen the first of our Autumn Winter deliveries arrive, (would you believe it?!) so soon you will be able to see these trends for yourself!
A trend for opulent fabrics included an emphasis on velvet and brocade. Although this trend lends itself particularly well to eveningwear, we think this gorgeous jacket from brand new brand Bourne will look just as great with jeans and a tee as it will with an LBD! Unique fabric combinations were spotted all over the catwalk from John Rocha to Huishan Zhang, showing that this look can be worn in a more mature way, or with a more fashion-forward feel depending on how you style it.
The love affair for separates is still going strong this season, and the cropped trouser is definitely one of the easiest trends to take away from London. Seen at shows such as Michael van der Ham and Antonio Berardi, the preference this season is a sleeker more tailored style, contrasting with the exaggerated wide legs from previous seasons. Keep an eye out for styles with an interesting fabric or print, such as this pair from Vilagallo.
This trend is nothing new, as it has dominated the Autumn Winter fashion scene in London for many years. Richard Nicoll, Whistles and Burberry showed the trend is definitely not slowing down anytime soon. We have our hearts set on this gorgeous faux fur dip-dye jacket from Unreal Fur!
Designers were seen carrying key autumn menswear trends over to womenswear this season, but one defiantly feminine trend that stood out was pleats. Pleated skirts and dresses were seen at numerous shows, and are a great alternative to the more fitted pencil-skirt style of previous seasons. Shorter skirts featured thicker pleats, but our favourite styles were the longer length, tighter pleated styles in thicker fabrics, such as this Nice Things one that will be arriving at bod & ted soon!
The trend for voluminous outerwear has been popping up all over the catwalks this season, and not just in London! In New York we saw longer lengths with a slimmer silhouette, whereas in London it was all about shorter styles in boxier shapes. Patterned and textured fabrics took this trend to a new level. We love this super cosy charcoal number from Vilagallo featuring dropped shoulders and leather trim.
Don’t worry, these pieces are going to start arriving in August, so you don’t have too long to wait!
love bod & ted xx
