When a new season starts, we can’t help but eagerly await the most sought-after textures, colours, and silhouettes as edited by our favourite fashion magazines, designers, and bloggers. But fashion has become green with envy as it looks to other industries where organizations are putting the planet ahead of their bottom line. So, where to start with the trends from fashion’s favourite season? According to Lisa Armstrong from Harper’s Bazaar, “In an era when mindful consumption is increasingly becoming an urgent aspiration, you should think in terms of what will make the most impact, then strategize your spending accordingly.” As this green-effect makes its way into vogue, designers and subsequent trends are following suit.
The suit jacket is, in fact, the perfect place to start this season. Jackets remain the cornerstone of closets with shoulders designed to be assertive, not aggressive, for the woman in charge. Not to mention they are the forever wardrobe staple to be worn now and layered later as temps cool. It is fitting then, that this season we are going back-to-basics with the Klas squared FW19 collection. And in the spirit to reduce, reuse, recycle, we’ve re-designed some of our customer favourites including the High Line Collection. Tuck shining-silver necklace stacks under your lapels for an extra power punch and instant mood boost.
If downtown is more your style, keep up with the crowd in fall’s favourite shoe: the boot. The higher, the better, but not at the expense of your feet – this trend has boots reaching above the knees to make a statement in every imaginable texture from shearling lined suede to crocodile leather. When designing for the woman always on the go, we were in a New York state of mind. This season we introduce the City Lights Collection and the Tower Pendant as the city that never sleeps continues to be a source of inspiration for us. We’ve also mixed uptown elegance with downtown edge in our Park Avenue Pearls Collection.
But the real hero of fall? The Cape. The ubiquitous cape is to clothes what our Infinity Collection is to your jewelry box: full of endless possibilities. Worn outside now and inside later, this fall must-have paired with statement links-at-large will have you turning heads long after the snow melts. Multi-tasking fashion is what’s in and with both of these styles, one piece covers all eventualities.
As fashion trends toward buying less and buying smart, the focus is on building a wardrobe to suit your style. An investment in fashion is in an investment in you: your style, your mood, what brings you joy. The days of following trends are behind us; instead, the power is in your hands as individuality is regarded as the current zeitgeist. Our Freedom Hoops are here to help guide you in your self-expression. After all, fashion’s most of-the-moment trend looks good on you.
You have the freedom to express yourself, the power to set the trends, influence others and show your personality through your sartorial choices. This is where the power of fashion comes to play, when there are no rules.
