Straight from snowy Stockholm, our junior fashion editor Graeme Moran brings you the best bits of the second day of fashion week.
The military trend shows no sign of backing down for autumn 13, with updates on army style outerwear marching out as highlights of yesterday’s Dagmar show. Camel, purple and a rich green were the key colours which came on slim tailoring, shaggy fur-like jackets and wrap-over playsuits. Another key shape to watch out for is the sleeveless longline vest coat, seen at Dagmar in thick wool layered over chunky knits.
Cheap Monday clashed grunge influences with colourful rave styling, as wide-leg plaid trousers, fluffy shearling jumpers, oversized parkas and shredded, paint splattered denim were teamed with super shiny, metallic and neon fabrics. Lace trousers were also spotted for the girls, a small emerging trend worth keeping an eye.
We highlighted Mes Dames as part of our Berlin trade show coverage earlier this month, and its Stockholm catwalk show was another of the day’s stand out collections. Once again, classic outerwear pieces were the gems of the show, updated in clean, simple lines and featuring zipped removable sleeves, teamed with sexy high waisted pencil skirts and lovely playsuits. It was all very restrained, modern and chic in a range of beautiful cosy fabrics and on-trend colours.
The menswear and womenswear from Whyred closed the day with a bang, riffing on androgyny and blending the street, with the smart and the sporty. Mannish tailoring and crisp white shirts were teamed with flare dresses fit for slick city ladies not prim girly girls. Shirts, trousers and even ties can in matching print-on-print for men, alongside some nice versions of the bomber jacket with contrast fabric sleeves and a fluffy metallic weave parka.
