Bright outerwear, Grenadine, Cognac and teal to mallard
The last city in the schedule, Paris, is notoriously difficult to access for trend direction, with designers marching to their own beat. However, it does confirm some of the key trends we’ve seen over the past four weeks.
1. Bright outerwear
We highlighted colour for outerwear in our London report and the trend was confirmed in Paris, as designers saw red and opted for a palette of searingly bright vermilion as the hottest colour for the season’s coats, as seen at Lanvin (pictured).
After four weeks of shows, one colour emerges as the winner for the season ahead; think rich, intensely saturated grenadine reds. This palette’s commercial appeal makes it a must for dresses, casual jackets and a strong shade for knitwear, as at Akris (pictured).
Rich cognac browns are set to be next winter’s new camel. Team with black, grey or the grenadine tones, worked in luxe wools, polished leathers, as at Loewe (pictured), suede and satin, or silk. Cognac
will become the new tan for must-have accessories.
4. From teal to mallard
Those warm grenadines and rich cognac browns need a cool accent to anchor them - think saturated teal blues and mallard greens. We love the way the colours were used at Haider Ackermann (pictured).
