    Spring Summer 2020 Trends
    Taking a step away from seasons past, the collections for SS2020 had a decidedly optimistic and joyful tone to them and maybe the escape hatch we are all looking for in these times. Even the dark horse Rick Owens had a lighter and more celebratory feel to his lineup for SS2020 ending his show in Paris with bubbles as opposed to a fire that we saw for SS2019 show. Nostalgia reigned with three decades dominating the runways: the seventies, eighties, and nineties. Looks we saw ranged from a minimalist nineties relaxed silhouette expressed in slip dresses and long man-tailored shirts and bra tops, to a volume orientated eighties silhouette featuring puffed sleeves, statement shoulders, oversized bows, bubble hems, and ruffles, to the more bohemian feel of layered romantic pieces of velvet, lace, and suede that tap into the seventies vibe, that could be seen at Celine where the decade dominated the collection.

    Color also reinforced the sense of celebration and ran the gamut from bright jewel tones, neons, pastels, white, and beige. With creamy beiges, magenta, neon yellow, pale orange, and all shades of green from jade to vibrant green to a sorbet mint as standouts for the SS202 palette.

    Prints were also inspirational and playful with romantic florals, tropical botanicals, zebra print, and polka dots stepping out as the preeminent trends. While crochet, macrame, raffia, and embroidery played to the sense of crafts and tapped in the retroelement that was also prevalent for SS2020.

    There was a duality to the collections for SS2020. They had minimalism and an over the top statement vibe both jockeying for position in the democratic arena of fashion.

    Notable trends that emerged for SS2020 are:
    1) Minimalist 90s urban trend featuring: slip dresses both worn alone and layered over tees, relax fit pieces and straight fit maxi skirts, long and cropped white button-down tops, and smooth satin-like unadorned leather. This trend was seen at designers such as Givenchy, Balmain, and Dries Van Noten.

    2) Playing into the nineties trend is the bra top which was seen on many runways in New York and across the pond in London, Milan, and Paris from satin, to crochet, to leather it was seen at Cynthia Rowley, Givenchy, Fendi, Dior, and many others.

    3) The oversized statement silhouette was also quite prominent with padded shoulders, lots of volume in billowing maxis and artfully draped evening dresses, ruffled tiers, and layered gauze. This trend could be seen at designers like Christian Cowen, Chanel, Molly Goddard, Christopher Kane, and Dior.

    4) Puffed sleeves were everywhere, both on the runways and outside the shows on the street, and played into the eighties trend, which was big for SS2020. They were found on dresses both long and short, on tops, and were seen at Tory Burch, Cynthia Rowley, Isabel Marant, Preen, and many others. This trend is not leaving anytime soon.

    5) The eighties were the biggest trend of the three decades that dominated the runways and were the most versatile, showing up in some form or another at almost every show. It was expressed in a plethora of ways from distressed denim shorts, dye effects denim with an acid wash like finishes, giant-puffed shoulders, bubble hems, form-fitting ruched dresses, neon, and trucker jackets.

    6) Neon was big, still going strong, and again I saw it both on the runway and the street. From garments to accessories to makeup, neon and in particular neon green and yellow were very popular. Valentino, Marni, Cushnie, Prabal Gurang, and Gucci were just a few of the designers to incorporate this can’t be missed color into their collections.

    7) Neon hot pink and bright orange were also big for SS2020. Marc Jacob’s ruffled magenta dress embraced this decadent sentiment, and he was not alone, these colors were also seen at Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and Tibi.

    8) Metallics were intense for SS2020, along with the usual gold and silver, which was seen on maxi evening dresses like the ones at Moohong, holographic metallics were also present and were used on outerwear and blazers as seen at Christian Siriano.

    9) The seventies trend, much like the eighties, is a counterpoint to the more minimal nineties, but it is a softer, more romantic, and earthier vibe than the eights. Patchwork, lace, velvet, flared trousers, button-down skirts, suede, knee-high boots, macrame, raffia, knitwear, and leisure suits played into this trend. It was prominent at designer’s shows such as Celine, Fendi, and Ulla Johnson, among others. Tie-dye, which had a moment last season, was less noticeable for this season.

    10) Knitwear and crochet, in particular, were quite prevalent, lent itself to the seventies trend, and was used on unexpected garments like evening dresses and suits as well as more traditional pieces like vests and tops. Crochet could be seen at Kate Spade, Jill Sander, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Fendi, to name just a few.

    11) Shorts were everywhere for SS2020, from hot pants to Bermuda shorts, to suit sets and distressed micro cutoffs. These were seen at designers like Chanel, Hermes, Bottega Veneta, Chloe, and Isabel Marant.

    12) Polkadots are very big for SS2020 and were mainly shown in the traditional black and white with a few color-infused exceptions and came in a variety of sizes and were used on dresses, tops, blazers, and tanks. Balmain, Carolina Herrera, Maison Margiela, and Paco Rabbane were a few of the designers to use this much sought after print.

    Some other trends to note are zebra print, head to toe white, and eyelet. The utilitarian silhouette but with more adornment like big pockets and zippers and offered in pastels as well as the expected neutrals on garments such as jumpsuits, boiler suits, and trucker jackets. Pleats, which were used on skirts as well as dresses with less traditional asymmetrical cuts, Sheer fabrics, cut-outs, and pleated jeans, were also seen from the brand Telfar. And the oversized pointed lapel-a more sporty element of the seventies trend was popular as well.

    In accessories, some of the trends to note are chunky gold necklaces, single statement earrings, prominent door knocker earrings, bucket hats, chokers, baguette bags, printed block heels, crochet sandals, patchwork bags, and polished wood.

    Tatras Joins Riot Hill for Fall Winter 2020
    written by Youness Boumia
    “So Far so good” These are the words we could hear, as an introduction for this special collaboration between TATRAS, known for its high-quality winter sportswear and RIOT HILL, a Streetwear brand founded by Jordan FRESHER and well appreciated by the famous singer The Weeknd. A plus, the support of Bella HADID coming to the show, holding a glass of champagne, in a total look from the collection: a khaki multi-pocket pants with a layering of a black turtleneck and utilitarian jacket.

    How to describe the collection in three words? Violent, anonymous, and order. After been a few minutes in the dark with light flashed, silhouettes appear with hematomas and scars faces (obviously it is makeup), with aesthetic references from military and utility clothing. Technical fabrics as nylon make bombers and coats, embellished with steel details as zippers, push-buttons, multi-pocket pants. We then move more into a defensive style reinforced, but the heavy ranger boots the oversized shapes, giving strength to the looks, like the “blanket like” puffer jacket. Get ready for the harsh winter!

    Emerging Designers From The Platform FLYING SOLO Show Their New Fall Winter 2020 Collections During NYFW
    Flying Solo is the largest independent designer platform in the US, formed by independent designers from all around the world. It is owned and operated by the designers themselves, and the objective is to transform fashion culture through revolutionary retail experience and a personal collection. Flying Solo provides them with both opportunities to sell their collections directly to the costumers (online and in their retail store in NYC) and to present them during NYFW in a show they call Flying Solo Couture.

    Last February, a long list of designers presented their FW20 collections. Overall, the show was very eclectic. Each designer has a very different style from the other, which brings more richness to the presentation. The collections went from a very sporty and fashion-forward style to those that opted for more formal clothes and classic shapes.

    There were many significant collections, but some of the designers caught the audience’s attention more than others, leaving a lasting impression. MONOSUIT was one of them. The Russian brand designed by Masha Agapkina presented a collection that combined the signature oversized modern athleisure looks in a neon palette, with more classical styles in black, grey, and white colors, but without losing the sporty vibe. Fur hats, ranging in colors from hot pink to neon turquoise, were also memorable. Di Vicenzo was one of the other highlighted designers. He presented a different collection from Monosuit, which was elegant, glamorous, and luxurious, showing the contrast between designers and their styles. The designs were body-accentuating dresses and separates, made using modern technology and innovative yarns to create perfectly fitted garments that would shape the wearer’s figure with its signature knitted look. With a very neutral color palette including black, white, nude, navy, and maroon, fringes were the star element that adorned the dresses, some of which also included shiny details.

    Cynthia Rowley Gets Inspired By Dr. Seuss For Her Spring Summer 2020 Collection
    Cynthia Rowley began her career in fashion while studying at the Art Institute of Chicago. After graduation, she took what little seed money she had and moved to NYC to start her eponymous fashion brand. The designer is known to take risks. This unparalleled sense of adventure that effortlessly translates into the spirit of the brand through a playful assortment of pretty dresses, beachy separates, and swim/surf. Cynthia Rowley has gone on to win numerous accolades, including a CFDA Award and Designer of the Year at the American Image Awards.

    Cynthia Rowley, the brand, is built on the philosophy that fashion should be an adventure. The brand’s signature pretty-meets-sporty assortment features ready-to-wear, surf and swim, fitness, accessories, and home decor. Sustainability plays an essential role in the brand’s production process – limited quantities are produced in every piece to avoid excess inventory.

    Deemed the pioneer of “surf-leisure” by Vogue, the brand’s signature wetsuits and neoprene swimwear are produced using recycled materials and green technology for a gentler and more sustainable environmental impact. Cynthia Rowley’s mission is rooted in women’s empowerment. The brand exudes a spontaneous spirit, and actively redefines fashion’s boundaries, inspiring women everywhere to take risks and live life fearlessly.

    For her SS20 collection, designer Cynthia Rowley turned Tribeca’s tucked-away Jay Street into an animated, happy playland inspired by Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, the Places You’ll Go.”

    Rowley’s runway was printed with images from the book, and a few dresses toward the end of the show included mash-ups of Dr. Seuss’s fine art. But instead of just co-opting his designs, the designer worked in whimsical elements to her feminine fest. Scalloped details, striped raffia hats, and cloud eye makeup all transmitted the same spirit. Aside from floral frocks, Rowley presented strong separates, like trousers with two different colored legs, a column day dress that was half-white, half-beige, and pieces with graphic patchworked color blocks.

    Models with boxy luggage or in a standout floral wetsuit, surfboard in hand, closed the show, ready for their next destinations.

    WISHARAWISH Presents A Collection That Combines Traditional Craftsmanship And Contemporary Design for Spring Summer 2020

    Wisharawish Akarasantisook became one of Thailand’s most promising young designers in the early 2010s. His approach to design remains as honest as the first day: it is a form of self-expression rather than business, and creative exploration. Championing technical mastery, immaculate handicrafts, and intricate details on pattern, Wisharawish plays with repetition of forms and geometric shapes, focusing on distinguished craftsmanship from different regions throughout Thailand alongside contemporary design. Wisharawish’s collections are a dialogue between the designer and his clothes, and then between the clothes and their viewers. Fashion becomes a narrative, and a platform to share interpretations and understandings.

    Under this idea, he founded the brand WISHARAWISH in the early 2010s and became known not long after its creator won the first prize of Mango Fashion Awards in Barcelona, Spain. WISHARAWISH’s wearable art and technical mastery have been continually exhibited worldwide. From Hyeres’s Festival International de Mode & de Photographie in France to Bangkok Elle Fashion Week in Thailand to Wallpaper* Magazine’s Handmade exhibition. These all helped to put the brand on the fashion map and art scene.

    For SS20, the designer Wisharawish Akarasantisook presented a collection where he explores a new chapter for the brand. He combines essential fabrics and sartorial cuts with wide and loose designs, resulting in a fluid, yet very elegant, silhouette. Dresses for women and blazers for men are the star pieces of the collection and the ones that show better this mix between a relaxed fluid style and a sartorial shape.

    The color palette was made from powder tones of gray, white, black, beige, and soft blue. The collection also included some geometrical and abstract prints.
