Across the pond, spring ’16 tugs at the heart with many lust-worthy collections. A soft, romantic mood prevails in fluid, falling-off-the-shoulder dresses, louche slip dresses and blouses soft as a sigh—often cut in asymmetric and askew lines. A modern prettiness cascades with ruffles, seduces with cutouts, layers lightly in long and languid ease—the newest deconstruction. The avant-garde offers a new soft take on futurism in retro galactic looks, featuring orbital lines and technical embellishments. While a 21st-century Gypset migrates across infinite borders in a collage of cultural influences.

All in all, a strong showing of eccentric, artistic, beautifully wearable clothing choices.

As the shows wind down and the fashion pack moves on to London and the Continent, the Nordstrom Fashion Office recaps spring ’16 with the Top 10 Trends from NYFW.

There is certainly a movement towards breezy, easy silhouettes and long languid layering. The erogenous zone moves to the shoulder. Relaxed ruffles and flounces enhance femininity with a casual flirtatiousness. A warm raw beauty continues the textural trend in materials. The season’s go-to pieces include a gypset freedom in the mix of print and pattern, a sensual slip dress, something indigo, a convertible bag and a soft shoe.

Designers in Paris tend to march to their own very distinct beat, and the shows there always deliver a beautifully diverse array of trends. There were, however, certain key looks, items and ideas that emerged over the course of all four of this season’s fashion weeks and reached their apex in the French capital.

Among our Top 10: A mood of romantic, gothic Victorian; a nostalgic ’70s feeling; and a clean-edged retro-future idea that recalls the ’60s but is brought up to date with modern fabrications. Fur and layered texture continue in importance and a tailored coat, sleek bag and fitted boot will all be must-haves come fall. High-shine leather and precious dimensional embellishments in unexpected forms keep the look sleek, modern and feminine. Enjoy!

Trend Recap: Texture

paris-fashion-week-aw15-trend-recap-texture

As Fashion Month moves on to Paris, a major message for next season looks set to be multilayered texture. Mix fur, shearling and textured tweedy sweaters with sequins and vintage brocade for a new take on the glamorous bohemian mood of fall ‘15.
