TRENDING: Winter in Black and White

Autumn/Winter 2016/17

The monochromatic colour scheme is a classic; one that repeatedly reoccurs throughout the years and seasons to reappear as a new trend. This colour duo had been proved successful for the both colder and warmer seasons, making its appearance on multiple collections, some of which include Christian Dior, Josh Goot and Josie Naroti.

Clean lines, silhouettes and asymmetry were a few of the stand-out trends that were used in conjunction with monochrome. Other popular elements included smooth textures, flowy fabrics and the pop of contrast to enhance detailing such as belts, lapels and collars.

Whilst maintaining the modern simplicity and chic styles, some of the collections feature more complicated elements that would require a more intensive development stage. Victoria Beckham, Emanuel Ungaro and Mugler are representative of this. These collections would naturally involve more elaborate pattern-making.
