From retro comebacks to new color palettes for the Spring 2020 season, designers including Gucci, Paco Rabanne, and Fendi gave their all to set fashion’s 2020 agenda. Here are our favorite inspirational trends from next Spring’s runways.
That’s right! The 70’s made a fresh comeback on the runway this year. The strong and widely pronounced disco collar modernized collections by Victoria Beckham, Paco Rabanne, Saint Laurent, and Salvatore Ferragamo. This collar sensationalized the majority of outerwear in bright and contrasting colors, such as neon and pastels.
This year’s fashion forecast centers around all things 70’s vintage, and that includes crochet. These pieces from Salvatore Ferragamo aren’t your grandmother’s usual doilies. Crochet has evolved in its styling since the early 2000s. Designers have woven it into bathing suits, midi dresses, and even evening wear. The integration of crochet also signals the fashion industry’s increased focus on sustainability. That’s because crochet:
- Demands less yarn than the fiber counts making up more traditional fabrics
- Can be easily made using eco-friendly or vegan yarn fibers
- Easy upcycle
Crochet is a statement making slow-fashion alternative to fast fashion trends with a quick production and even faster wear cycle.
Revitalizing retro became a pattern that designers showcased at fashion week. And speaking of patterns, this Spring 2020 runway trend on our list is “1960’s wallpaper”. While it’s clear that prints have made a major comeback, who would have thought that the one on your grandmother’s old wallpaper would make the cut? These “psychedelic wallpaper prints” are new patterns made famous by Marc Jacobs, Fendi, and Prada on this year’s runway.
This year’s runway shows have taken the classic business suit to a whole other level. We’re talking about vacation shorts once considered cringe-worthy. This Spring, collections from Tom Ford, Givenchy, Altuzarra, Chloe, and once again, Bottega Venetta, have embraced the art of versatility with the Bermuda short as their vehicle. Paired with a professional nine-to-five blazer, Bermuda shorts represent that “cool Californian” vibe just in time for spring. With bike shorts also in season, Bermudas explore the idea that suits aren’t limited toformal wear, but work for ready to wear as well.
Harper’s Bazaar claims that “Spring Leather” is the ‘in’ thing for 2020. Although leather typically takes center stage on the fall and winter runways, “It” designers Marni, Alexander McQueen, Coach 1941, and Bottega Venetta created innumerable styles beyond handbags and outerwear for the Spring season. These included skirts and pants in bold colors, with painted floral prints sent strutting down the runway.
One thing about the bra top trend: “less is more”. Sheer, crochet, and ruffle embellished bra tops appeared on the runways of Fendi, Dior, and Givenchy. The near-lingerie garments bring a daring feminist element to collections nowadays, so don’t be afraid to embrace this trend in your future collection, paired with high waisted midi skirts, shorts, an oversized sunhat, or a pair of flip flops.
