So what exciting trends have emerged from the couture, and what can we expect to be translated into high street next Spring/Summer? In summary: White’s are in, Neon Brights are back, Fringing is abundant, and Prints – well, the louder the better! We are apparently supposed to tease our hair into 70’s-esque frizzy-chic afro’s or just off the beach waves (in London?) and go hell for leather for the biker babe look…I’m talking leather and studded accessories people.
Is this a statement being made by designers worldwide to gain a wider following? Or are they, just as we are, influenced by the street trends of ‘Grey’ being back en mode. Take for example the continued lure of silver haired supermodel Kristen McMenamy, the massive success of the Lady Gaga Vogue covershoot and the recent research showing Men over 55, a.k.a Silver Foxes, are officially sexy again. Don’t get me wrong; although I wouldn’t say no to George Clooney, it’s all a bit Electra complex for my liking…
However, for once, I’m loving that Fashion Week is promoting natural beauty, and growing old gracefully. When my blonde locks start fading into a silvery style, I’m definitely going to do everything I can to make it shine. Until then, I’ll leave it to the professionals.
