SS19 Color Forecast

I know we just hit the new year, and you’re probably like whaaat? Spring?! Yup, the fashion industry is always 1 to 2 seasons ahead. Let’s face it, by the time it’s March the last thing you want to see is more puffer coats right? Bring on the bright colors, bikinis, and sandals! When I worked in retail, it was always on to the next season. It would be winter and we’d be prepping for spring/summer dresses already. I know it’s odd to see, but it’s a smart tactic that fashion week also helps push.

Many people travel all over the world to warmer locations between December & January. Fashion trends start early, and you can see that just by looking at some of the top designers websites and socials. Resort Wear and Pre-Spring collections come out before any S/S pieces do. Resort wear is on sales floor the longest and rarely goes on sale.  

I always love Pantone’s names for the color forecasts, they’re really interesting and creative! What a fun job that would be! The color palette by Pantone for SS19 includes: Fiesta, Jester Red, Turmeric, Living Coral, Pink Peacock, Pepper Stem, Aspen Gold, Princess Blue, Toffee, Mango Mojito, Terrarium Moss, and Sweet Lilac.

SS19 also has some amazing neutrals coming into play! The four colors are: Soybean, Eclipse, Sweet Corn, and Brown Granite. You can see Soybean and Sweet Corn in many outerwear and bag collections, they’re great neutrals to build outfits on. Eclipse is also coming on strong in the beauty industry. I’ve been seeing really strong bold blue eyes in shadows and liners.

Between all these Pantone colors there are so many mini trends bursting out! Stay tuned for more of those trends on my posts this coming month. What are some of your favorite colors from Pantone’s forecast? I’m loving the first four of the SS19 colors: Fiesta, Jester Red, Turmeric, Living Coral!  I’m so excited to see the full SS19 collections come out from every brand. I love to compare and see each brands take on the color trends, and how they create pieces from them. Bring on the fun colors and warmer weather!

Milano Fashion Week- VERSACE

IMG_4844

Ahh Milan, the city that’s recognized as the world’s biggest fashion capital, and the design capital. It’s not just Italy’s second most populous city, it’s where fashion lives and breathes. Milan FW brings in one of the highest revenue, and visitors each year!

With that being said, you best believe the designers stepped up their game for each and every show. Milan’s fashion week was from September 18th through the 24th. I’m focusing this post on Versace and all their incredible designs for SS19. I loved seeing so many vibrant colors and patterns mixed together. Some pieces are so retro and have huge throwback looks. Everything is coming back from the 70s, 80s, 90s, but with new twists. I’ve compiled some of the s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g designs from Versace and hope you enjoy all this glorious eye candy!

London Fashion Week

IMG_4912

London is one of the “Big Four” fashion capitals of the 21st century. I was lucky enough to spend a big chunk of my life from 2 years old and up in London with family. I absolutely loved going shopping there! The second my mom would say let’s go to Selfridges or Harrods, I’d jump out of my seat, grab my bag and we’d be off. Fashion in London is always 20 steps ahead to me. I remember seeing these amazing trends and buying so many great pieces, and then months later it would just start touching down in Los Angeles. I was a happy camper having 80% of my closet being awesome British fashion.

London Fashion Week ran from September 14th through the 18th and there were so many great designers showing off their creations. I’m focusing this post on three of the top designers that I loved from LFW: Mary Katrantzou, Erdem, and Simone Rocha. They are all so visually stunning!!

These photos for LFW are from Vogue Magazines official fashion week photographer, Corey Tenold. He takes amazing pictures during fashion week, and has great backstage shots that you don’t end up seeing as much. I love that because you get to see so much more detail and life brought to each shot. Check out his Instagram @coreytenold and see for yourself!

Which designer did you like most?! I love them all because of the floral patterns and designs. So much beauty and detail into each garment! I’m a sucker for detail and hope you guys enjoyed this post!
