TREND ALERT: RETURN TO RETRO
The future may hold promise, but the past presents a variety of tried-and-tested styles that deserve regular revival. From Valentino’s elaborate, crimson collar atop a simple, ’60s frock to Altuzarra’s ’70s safari suit, it’s a role call of pivotal trends throughout the 20th century. The history lesson wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the world wars that dominated the century – Marc by Marc Jacobs suggests masculine, military style with high-waisted grey trousers and no-nonsense boots.
Jason Wu recalls the boxy sheath dress and jacket sets of the ’60s, Marni focuses on a ’70s color palette and Céline channels the ’80s power bitch in a jacket with a strong-shouldered silhouette.
