What new trends have you spotted for autumn 13?

Industry insider’s share their thoughts.

Style Council

Adam Jagger

The main theme coming through is still sportswear-based and I’m seeing some great use of technical fabrics in contemporary shapes; I still really like this look combined with a slight heritage nod. I also really like what Christopher Raeburn (pictured) is doing at the moment - the collection is looking really strong.

People seem to have been playing it quite safe. Simple cuts are everywhere. It’s all about colour and texture with an abundance of fluffy yarns (YAS, pictured). As always, the trends will start coming through nearer the season, which makes it tantamount to insanity to buy womenswear so far in advance.

Paul Turner-Mitchell

Trends are set to see a continuation from the regal and art deco inspiration that looks towards Great Britain’s own monarchy as well as eastwards, to Russian oligarchs of the past century in particular. This is in direct contrast to a more visionary outlook, with futuristic yarns in vibrant colours. Expect to see warm hues, gold and orange, coral and red (Topman Design, pictured).

Laura Larbalestier

We’ve almost finished buying pre-collections so have seen almost everything. Velvet seems to be the newest fabric and we’re also loving all the new luxurious parkas (Acne, pictured). We were very happy to see there is a lot more eveningwear for pre-fall, since we saw less in spring. And the craze for the mini-bag continues - everything now comes in miniature!
