In the twinkling of an eye it’s fall, but just because the days turn short and grey on us, it doesn’t mean, we have to let go off the flowers.
The fall trends this year do not really scream Fall or Winter necessarily. Maybe the mild winter of the last year is to blame for. And if we follow what the New York Fashion Week, one of the most influential of them all has to say, it looks like as if the biggest trend seemed to be not really paying attention to the season at all. Almost every designer presented fall collections that felt springlike in nature—slinky slip dresses, billowy off-the-shoulder tops, florals, and strapless tops.
When it comes to the florals, it’s not like every fall designers play with them, but for 2016, a pretty hefty number of designers kicked minimalism to the curb and added small yet bold prints to sweatshirts, skirts, and sweeping dresses.
The Scandi designers who are the epitome of minimalist chic upped their game too, so that we get to wear beautiful and dreamy clothes this fall season.
For this editorial I am wearing basics by H&M. I made a statement with the ultimate Acne Studios classic, the Pistol boots. And for the rest I let my imagination run wild.
I had my eye on Ganni for a long time already, but it never was quite available. Ganni finally came to Stockholm last year and can be found at NK, Åhléns and even at Mood Stockholm. Staying true to its Scandi esthetics, Ganni designed some exceptional pieces that positively stand out.
One of them is the double-breasted cotton-blend floral brocade blazer, called O’Donnell. Sewed with perfection it shows silky red lining, manlike tailoring with a slightly oversized fit (think 1930s and 1940s men’s fashion) and charming brocade flowers in burgundy shades. The florals give you lots of options how to combine this statement piece.
Rodebjer is another exceptional Scandi brand which was founded by Carin Rodebjer in New York City back in 1999. After she was spotted on the streets of Manhattan wearing her own designs, she started selling her fashion to friends and stores in New York and in Stockholm. And the rest as they say is history. What I like about Rodebjer particularly is that the designer is not afraid of playing with color. And that is why we see lots of red, pink and blue in this collection. The coats are to die for, as are the dreamy blouses, trousers and basically everything. The blouse that I chose to complement my look is the Mikayla blouse in black flower, a feminine yet sophisticated silk blouse with a charming floral print.
With prospects like these, the winter can come. We are covered. Fashion wise, that is.
