The street scene offers an important insight into what women are wearing and how these looks are being put together. In tailoring the oversized proportions are key with lots of exaggerated shapes being balanced against regular fits. Prints are introduced across a lot of denim, outerwear and the casual-sports section, where patterned mesh is an important trend. Dresses confidently occupy space with added volume, or skim the body with cutout details
The street scene delivers a grounded view of men’s apparel trends. Mono-colour dressing and statement pieces deliver a strong impact while frayed denim and mismatched styling offers a more relaxed look. Graphics take centre stage in knitwear and also spill across jerseywear in the casual-sports section. Suits are classic and understated with black ranked as the leading colour, exceptions to this are bold-colour jackets and patterned retro styled tailoring
