Womenswear Pre Fall 2017 Preview

Here is an insight into three influential Pre Fall trend directions that will be key for Fall/Winter 2017-18.  Navy Sateen is an essential edition to the core palette that lends a new sophistication to core classics. The revised placements of Cut Up Blockings illustrate the bold print looks coming through for Fall. For apparel, silhouettes borrow from the boys with man-tailored constructions and exaggerated proportions offering a relaxed gender-neutral Agender Silhouette alternative to classic womenswear.

Colour-blocking is reinvented for Fall as classic placements are cut up and reassembled to follow the contours of the body.
  • A bold palette is refined with complimentary yet directional shades. 
  • Strict geometric panelling creates a structural statement effect. 
  • Reworked stripes offer a fresh take on a classic patternation.

Navy Sateen

Classic navy shades are given added depth with dark inky casts lending a more refined feel to both casual and evening apparel. 
  • Navy tones have a strongly saturated density of color. 
  • Over-dyed finishes offer a smarter take on utility fabrications. 
  • Self trims and subtle sheen finishes enhance colour intensity.

The Agender Silhouette

Gender lines become blurred for Fall as womenswear adopts a masculine aesthetic inspired directly by the menswear rails. 
  • The female form is redefined with a masculine silhouette. 
  • Boxy shapes and voluminous fits follow traditional tailoring codes. 
  • Monochrome shirting and suiting have a masculine modernity.
