Since this is a blog ‘de tendances‘, let’s talk about tendances – about the new trends for this season. It might seem a little frivolous, but I would like to start the season on a light note, and anyway, I reckon we will see these trends all autumn long, so you know what to expect! I confess I am also mentally visualising my new autumn wardrobe staples. Aren’t you?
After a nice summer break on the French Riviera, a good read of all the eagerly anticipated international fashion press of September – THE fashion issues, as the film The September Issue attests – and after digesting all the collections, I think I can say I, we, are all ready to uncover all these trends. Well, I have made a selection which is undoubtedly subjective, and my vision, my interpretation of fashion this season, and things I like. I hope you like them too.
As autumn approaches – soon enough, we need to be ready to walk in the cold streets of the city in our heels… and tights. And as much as I would like to show my freshly tanned legs, and just love bare legs in warm boots in the cold season, if there is a trend I am looking forward to, it is sheer dotted tights, called plumetis in French. Goodbye opaque tights, goodbye leggings (finally!), hello sexy 80’s coquette. Balenciaga have announced their return, and Louis Vuitton have a monogram version.
I plan to pair all my minis with them this season – and oh, did I say I only wear dresses? – you know what you will see me wearing this autumn. However, I believe patterned tights in general will be welcome, and I am not ready to throw last year’s lace tights away yet either. Carine Roitfeld loves them too, as she explained in the latest Vogue DVD: even she will cover her legs this autumn.
Oh, and I am happy to be back with an internet connection. But do not worry, I have not been resting too much fashion-wise. In fact, I am going to Paris tomorrow, and have meetings planned with Louis Vuitton, and Cartier, just to mention a few, so there will be some exclusive infos on the blog soon. Welcome back!
Oh and by the way, left picture of Abbey Lee is from Vogue Australia, and right picture is the epitome of Paris sexy chic from Vogue Paris. The two skirts are Balmain, heels on the left Jimmy Choo, heels on the right Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain and tights Gerbe.
