I was recently invited to the House of Fraser Press Day to view the Autumn/Winter 2015 designer collections. I could have spent all day in the showroom just staring at the stunning pieces, from the mixed fabrics to the focused details.
The biggest trends seen at the press day for this upcoming Autumn/Winter are pony hair, fringe and leather touches on accessories and clothing, leopard print bags, and fur scarves. Mixing fabrics is also carried through and can be strongly seen on the different pieces.
There is also quite a few accessories pushing the marsala and black colour combination which make a stunning contrast. My favourite is the oversized floppy hat and the black leather fringe bag.
One of the best accessories to add an instantly chic look is the Riding Hat. The ones featured at the press show incorporated quirky details like cat ears and a fur puff.
The evening wear is just as beautiful with a 20s inspiration behind it. The oversized dresses are embroidered with sequins, beading and silks. And have you notice the heels on the last mannequin below (look like ghungaroo anklets!).
I can't wait for Autumn to come around now; the early dusk, cooler weather, and of course- new wardrobe! I'll be going towards the fur scarves and the marsala and black mix. I also might have to invest in a beaded and sequin kimono style robe for evening wear. Which styles are you gravitating towards?
