From the bedroom to the runway, the fashion world is flooded with this risquè boudoir fashion trend for Fall 2018.
The “boudoir” style is derived from outfits that women would wear in their private room or bedroom. Combinations of silk, lace, and sheer fabrics create a feminine look that is sexy while still being demure in its own way. This style is for the daring, boss ladies of the world who are craving to make a statement.
Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander Wang both portrayed the darker, more night appropriate side of the boudoir trend. Designers like Blumarine and John Galliano used light, flowing fabrics that exude femininity. Peter Pilotto used a spectrum of vibrant hues and satin, robe-inspired ensembles, that bring the worlds of comfort and fashion together in a unique way.
The Future is Here! During Fall 2018 The Impression noticed an abundance of a futuristic trend vibe featuring metallics of all colors, neon designs, and accessories that are out of this world.
Designers like Alexander Wang, Maison Margiela, Calvin Klein, and Balmain were not afraid to show off these bold fabrics in their designs. Alexander Wang kept his designs simplistic by incorporating pops of metallics into his sleek black designs. Maison Margiela was all about the accessories, featuring metallic shoes and see-through space helmets. Calvin Klein featured sophisticated silver metallics into both clothing and accessories. Balmain was all about the fabrics, using colorful rouche and metallic fringe.
With Milan Fashion Week at an end, a prominent trend this year was a Burst of Color. This trend showcases vibrant, neon colors that are usually not worn together.
This year they were brought to the runway and executed to perfection.
Versace, Prada, Marco de Vincenzo, and Marni had added every color imaginable into their designs. Versace incorporated different types of plaid and animal print into their designs, while also keeping it classy by incorporating touches of gold jewelry. Prada features a wide variety of dresses, sweatshirts and two piece outfits with neon coloration. Marco de Vincenzo featured ruched tops, and satin accents throughout. Marni featured outfits filled with shine and stripes.
Y-3 is launching the third and final chapter of the brand’s Spring 2018 campaign, a black and white campaign shot by Alessio Bolzoni, focused on the re-envision of the icons of adidas through the unique lens of Yohji Yamamoto: graphic, pure, and consistently forward-thinking.
Bolzoni’s black and white filtered photography highlights models in kinetic poses situated in a wide-open meadow against a cloud-filled sky. The stark background brings focus to the exhilarating collection, a fusion of sport and fashion to form a new uniform for modern streets. Styled by Mauricio Nardi, there is an emphasis on voluminous apparel from skirts to tunics and parkas, all maintaining the iconic three stripes, bringing in a sense of movement.
Also two exclusive versions of fresh Y-3 footwear styles, the Kusari and the Saikou are previewed in the campaign. The Kusari consists of stretch mesh and leather, leveraging both design and function, while the Saikou’s sock-like design that wraps the foot in adaptive support symbolizes Y-3’s commitment to aesthetic minimalism.
