The London street scene brings out the best emerging trends. These original images show how women’s apparel is changing within each style category. In general there is an increase in proportion and volume, and this ‘taking up space’ reflects a growing confidence for womenswear. In styling there’s a contrast between delicate pieces that are sheer, second-skin or cutaway, with items which are oversized in more durable materials. Investment styles, such as coats or leather pieces come in safe, core colours but these are countered with bold-colour or bold-texture contrasts. This curated insight into trends is edited into a flow of looks, which is organised by style category.
Colour for 2024 reflects the anticipation and excitement of summer, with fresh light tones and euphoric brights.

Soft shades feed into the idea of a caring, more thoughtful mindset and a gently, less harmful approach to design. The 40-colour palette includes two important selections: KEY6 are six important colours that define the new season and CORE, which are ten essential long-term colours.

Concepts for SS24 outline the emerging cultural shifts, new events and designs shaping the future, and art that impacts the way we view the world.
