An eclectic season celebrating style and individuality throughout a multitude of new prêtes-à-portée tendencies. Ester Mocchegiani keeps you posted on the top 8 trends you do not want to miss out on this coming winter.

HIPPY PATCHWORK

Do you remember the 70s and the mix-and-match
fashion? Half way between American folk tradition
and the rebellious student movements, the patchwork
style for 2019 is all of this! “Mismatched” is out of the
vocabulary this year with mixed patterns and textures
juxtaposed or stitched together for a superior nomad
look. We have seen it on Dior and Missioni’s catwalks,
and it will definitely influence the fashion trends during
the next coming months… you have been warned.

CHECKS ALL OVER
Small or big, it really doesn’t matter as long as the key
word is… checks. This ultra-modern, optical style, which
is set to triumph this winter season has invaded the
catwalks all over the world and there is something to suit
everyone’s taste; from grunge to tartan punk to Prince of
Wales patterns. Crazy color-block looks come and clash
together to give this new style an edgy and not-classic
touch. Check out Calvin Klein, Versace, Micheal Kors or
Burberry.

MODERN PRINCESS
Some of you might remember the medieval tapestry that
used to fascinate us when reading stories of castles and
beautiful princesses. Finally, this is your moment to dress
like one of them! In fact, the modern rendition of the
tapestry pattern for 2019 is characterised by romantic
flowers and bucolic scene, thus giving you a glimpse
of what the old chivalry world was all about. Are you in
love with this look already? Check out the latest work of
fashion designer Mary Katrantozou.

LEATHER, I LOVE YOU!
From head to toe, leather will be the protagonist of this
coming fall/winter season!
Leather dresses, leather jackets and miniskirts are
making their fashion comeback in a multitude of different
colors; from black to red, to mint green, sand and camel
hues. This look also includes the use of sheepskin, which,
with its fluffy and soft material, is the perfect choice for
your winter wardrobe.

WESTERN GIRL
Fashion this fall looks at America and decides to let
women discover the New Continent through Western
accents. That sentiment appeared everywhere from
New York to Milan and Paris; Tom Ford’s sharply-tailored
full denim looks are Canadian tuxedo gone glam, and
Versace’s revival of Gianni’s original designs includes                                                        leather cowboy hats and plentiful bolero ties.

GO WILD
This fall/winter season is going to be really wild for
animal prints. The zoo is back on the catwalks of the
major fashion designers, with patterns like tiger,
leopard, zebra, snakeskin and cow. The woman in love
with animal prints is powerful and independent, but at
the same time, she is also environmentally conscious,
and she likes to protect the planet. For this reason, she
chooses to match animal prints with eco (fake!) fur –
another must-have garment of this coming season (yes,
you might even need one on a windy day in sunny Malta!).
Dolce & Gabbana, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Gucci
or Givenchy’s latest catwalks can give you an insight
into this new trend.

HOLOGRA-M-ANIA
Futuristic women, this is the look this autumn. It is set to
be big. Wrap yourself up in ultra-shining and reflective
materials, as seen on the catwalks of Balmain or Maison
Martin Margiela and join the holographic trend!

LINGERIE INSPIRATIONS
Pajama dressing. Who said that lingerie can only be
restricted to an evening in? And why can it only be
considered as part of an outfit brought out onto the
fashion runways? This fall, the music has changed, and,
in fact, on the fashion scenes we will be seeing dresses
that look like nightgowns, bustier-style constructions
on dresses, lace, transparent fabrics and sexy details.
Bottega Veneta will definitely inspire you this winter.
We really have got something to look forward to now:
bring on the winter season!
