ALL YOU NEED TO UPDATE, RE-STYLE AND INSPIRE YOUR LOOK THIS NEW SEASON IN FASHION
The stores are telling us a new season is here and, while the weather in Singapore remains constant, we ladies love a new season in fashion, it’s the perfect opportunity to revamp our wardrobe and style-up our look.
Autumn/Winter 2015 has arrived into Singapore and with it we are inspired to add a few additions, bring our looks on trend and express our individuality through our wardrobe. This season caters for all lifestyles and tastes. There’s the relaxed 70’s vibe, androgynous tailoring from the Urbanist look, seductive sultriness from the Dark Luxury and flirty fun from the Retro Vibe.
Here is our look at this New Season in Fashion, as we bring you all you need to know to update, re-style and plan your wardrobe perfectly this Autumn/Winter.
Back in the 1970’s
This fashion season, trends are again looking to the past, and certainly there is a nostalgic feel to fashion with the 1970’s theme being strongest again across all platforms.
The key silhouettes would be loose-fitting and relaxed with tailored trousers paired with fluid, feminine blouses and maxi dresses paired with faux fur gilets.
With a focus on lengths and proportions, we are seeing wide leg trousers, kick flare jeans, wide-sleeved tops, high-neck blouses and bohemian maxi-lengths too.
Casual wear is having a folk-inspired feel with eclectic layering, tactile fabrics and print clashing while formal wear has added luxury for a more mature refined feel.
The colour theme is typically 70’s with a strong emphasis on the rich warm tones of tan, mustard, brown, earthy greens and reds.
So if you love boho, suede, fringing, clashing folkoric prints, fur, shearling and fedoras, make some space in your wardrobe. You are going to love this look.
Shearling trimmed coats
Wide sleeve blouses
Fringing & Accessories
Bohemian maxi dresses, off shoulder tops and head scarves
Kick flare pants
The dark, lacey, moody luxury of antique femininity returns as a strong trend leading us towards our cooler months and festive period. This look certainly has a nod to party season, and a real must for those who love to dress up and add a touch of glam to their evening or day look.
The mood looks to Victorian silhouettes, a high neckline, longer length hems, whilst being brought up to date with sassy sheers and peek a boo lace.
The colour pallet has a dark feel with lots of black and sultry reds, burgundy, sapphire blues interspersed with creams and winter white.
A perfect look for those who want to create an exotic theatrical look, or weave a subtle blend of historical femininity into their day look.

The Retro Vibe Revisited
A mod-style on the 1960’s tailoring takes on a contemporary twist with grown-up and smart aesthetics mixed with futuristic undertones through high-shine fabrics.
Against the back drop of other seasonal trends favouring a dark, rich colour pallet, refreshingly this look is much more sugar candy and fresh with brights and pastel shades.
The silhouette is simple and clean with slim fitting neat shapes. Think A-line mini skirts, simple sheath and shift dresses, roll-neck knits worn underneath an animal print jacket.
Key silhouettes are simple and straightforward with slim-fitting neat shapes. Roll-neck knits are styled with A-line miniskirts worn underneath animal print jackets to offer a retro 1960’s vibe.

Neat midi length skirts and dresses
Chunky knit jumpers
The Urbanist trend consists of casual tailoring, top-to-toe knitted looks, tactile fabrics and soft layered styling. Over sized proportion play is key, with elongated, knits and oversized outerwear layered over midi-skirts and wide-leg trousers for a new styling direction. The overall look is contemporary and luxurious, as well as casual and comfortable.
The colour pallet focuses on the neutral shades, particularly shades of grey, off white shades and hints of greens and caramels.
