That’s a wrap on the New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 shows, and you know what that means: Fashion Fabrics Club’s annual round up of the hottest trends from the designer runways.
Soft pastels give way to big, bold hues for spring 19, the most prominent shade being a vivid marigold that feels both royal and romantic. We’re seeing designers use it head to toe with lots of layers in drapey fabrics like chiffon and silk to play up the dramatic effect.
Oh Hey, Crochet
Many designers showed their affection for handcraftsmanship, featuring unique pieces that even if they were not entirely made by hand, were certainly inspired by the look of the traditional craft. Crochet in particular was a popular pick, sure to reign among the beaches and seaside villas of the most fashionable come next spring.
While this season we’re seeing strong, angular suits inspired by the power suits of the late 1980s (shoulder pads and all), the suit seems to take a modern, deconstructed turn for spring ‘19 that looks more to the future than to the past. Reimagined silhouettes like cutouts, wrap blazers, and skirts with trousers in classic suiting materials make for a whole new look for being on duty.
A nod to the past shone through the runways in the form of nostalgic tie dye—a possible indication of designers’ optimism for bringing the peace-and-love attitude it represented in the ‘60s into 2019. From subtle tie dye to full-blown rainbow, the runways offered many ways to rock this throwback trend.
The shirtdress has been a spring/summer essential for years, but for spring 2019 it gets an oversized, slouchy makeover that feels much more relaxed and somehow more luxurious than the more traditional tailored silhouette. Whether in laid-back linen or crisp cotton, it was apparent that designers are partial to using clean white for this new go-to.
