Trends spotted at last week’s Paris show.
Delivered by a number of exhibitors, including Aaiko, Osklen, Barcelona-based Etxart & Panno and French brand Weill, animal print shows no signs of abating for autumn 15. Brands such as French fur and shearling business Rizal used it on luxurious coats, while Majestic Filatures went for a subtler option, blending leopard print with the yellow trend through a cashmere and modal shirt (€59/£44.26).
Teal Whether it was featured
on knitwear at Des Petits Hauts or on patterned waterfall cardigans at Ichi, Who’s Next was awash with teal. Belgian designer Nathalie Vleeschouwer included the colour in knitwear at €56.39 (£42.31) and tops at €50.17 (£37.65), using different shades within various patterns.
A prominent trend was the long-line cardigan, seen in both a block colour version from Ichi at €28.60 (£21.42) or mixed with other key tones, as in a yellow flecked version from Samsøe & Samsøe, at €31 (£23.22). Many versions came in oversized styles with large pockets.
Several brands included mesh for autumn 15. Orla Kiely used it as a hem on skirts while Indian brand Hemant & Nandita, which is stocked in Anthropologie in the UK, added a mesh layer to a patterned, grey sweatshirt, at $100 (£66.59). Romanian designer Irina Schrotter used mesh on a black jacket to create an animal print pattern.
