Soldier up fashionista’s, the military trend is back with full force. Inspired by the runways of Burberry, Victoria Beckham and Balmain, the military trend has been updated with a broader colour range, and more prominently with structured and defined silhouettes. The camo trend exudes a strong and powerful image and matched with leather and studs, creates an edgy appearance for any street chic fashionista.
Hottest colour for the upcoming winter? oxblood. Yes oxblood! Short for ‘oxygenated blood’, the dark red colour blood turns when exposed to air. Oxblood has saturated runways across the world and with international publications hailing it as a must-have for the season, little wonder that this trend has fashionista’s and would be it girls adopting it as a staple for the season ahead.
Seen in hues of ruby, burgundy and sometimes referred to as ‘chianti’, it’s a dark and moody colour that can be styled for luxe perfection or street edge. From monochromatic, to leather and knits, this trend is versatile and adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit.
I have always held the belief that fashion is the most formidable movement of our time, and one of the most formidable movements in all of history. It is an expression of who we are, and a reflection of the subtle elements which define us. Fashion transcends mere clothes and brands, it has become so deeply entrenched as a part of who we are, it now plays a significant role in how we define ourselves and how we’re identified in society and the world.
I have always been immensely passionate about not only fashion, but style, culture and movements and how they all contribute to who we are as a people. I remain fascinated by how fashion influences us , and in turn how we influence fashion and its symbiotic relationship with cultural movements, art, literature, photography architecture, etc.
With this blog, I hope to educate, to move, to inspire and to share my love and passion.
Peace & Love.
