Moda time is one of my favourite times of year. There’s nothing I love more than popping around the stalls and seeing what my favourite brands have to offer in the coming seasons – or even better – finding a new favourite brand to drool over!
This year was no different, with a fair few ‘must haves’ from the likes of Gossard, Tutti Rouge, Freya, Panache and more.
Warning: this season is not for the shy – I’ve put together a summary of some of the trends I spotted weaving their way through each of the collections, with neon bright shades, oriental, strong colours and bold florals making a strong statement.
Think springlike shades in a wintery season – keep yourself karking back to the summertime with brights, neons, pastels and clashing colours. Anything bright and bold is in.
I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these as it’s still so difficult to fun and vibrant lingerie in fuller bust sizes. Brand in particular who have this trend nailed down include Cleo by Panache, Tutti Rouge and Gossard. Who needs a Winter wardrobe when you can make it Summer all year round, right?
A trend awash with strong ‘floriental’ charm mixed with jewel shades and rich, opulent lace. I adore this trend. As someone who’s pretty much an asiaphile, I never tire of peony prints and blossoms at any given opportunity.
Florals are anything but understated this season. Think big and think bold. Prints include a rainbow of clashing colours, statement bouquets of ‘lifelike’ flowers and pretty watercolour pastels. Standout piece for this trend has to be Freya’s delicious graphic pansy print which appears to have a similar cut and shape as the ‘Babes in the Wood’ balcony bra (which fit wonderfully – yey!).
Key shades include ruby, sapphire and black, and plenty of it. One colour doesn’t need to be boring – make a statement with just one shade.
Continuing with the lust for luxurious jewel shades, these statement shades are vibrant, tertiary shades are just enough to make a statement on their own. Think black is dull? Think again. Black can be an attitude as well as an everyday shade.
Offset a predominantly singular shade with a tiny accent of neon to incorporate two of the key trends – just like with the Freya and Cleo ‘Neve’ sets below.
Which of these trends are you most keen to get your hands on?
