Dark night of the soul

The highs have their roots in the lows
The moon shines its best in the dark
When balance shapes the flow
 Flowers and glitter will spark.

The spring of 2020 comes with a powerful splash of bold colors. The luminous neon shades are seen on almost every runaway show, from edgy details on neutral looks, to full-on color on fierce modern looks.
These intense shades are not anymore exposed on athleisure garments or sporty items, but make a statement now on drapped feminine dresses, skirts and blouses.
This trend works well when worn as monochrome, or in complementary color- block schemes, as to mantain a certain visual balance.
Wearing neon colors on a long, flowing ruffled see-thru dress, as seen in the Valentino show, look both fresh and fashionable.

The present is made of stories forgotten and promises bound
To past long lost dreams,
That echo through layers of time,
Like ghosts without shape, without means.

Florals on dark backgrounds is not a new trend, but rather one in ongoing bloom.
For 2019 we are talking about large patterns with voluminous elements, spread with a distance from one another, contrasting with the powerful background. Also, as seen in Prada, some patterns are not repetitive and consist in gathering of elements in certain parts of the garment, or, show just one large colorful flower, as feminine accent on the dark surface.
Dark florals grow on many kind of clothing pisces, not only dresses –  coats, puffer jackets, as seen at Marc Jacobs, blazers and suits, scarfs. Now more than ever, is time to cultivate your own dark romance garden!

Fall Trends # 19 // Oversized Round Shouldered Coat

One of the key items of this coming season, spotted in almost every collection, is this large, oversized winter coat, typically with raglan cut or just large shoulders.
The variations and style are endless, from the retro- inspired, dreamy nude leather coat seen at Simone Rocha, to a more modern and practical approach made by Rick Owens, that brings a lot of comfort with the fleece, fluff material. Dolce&Gabana offers a coat infused with fantasy and precious elements, like the dark lace embroidery, while the coat seen in Loewe show has a more edgy, geometric design.
Either way, the oversized round shouldered coat is one of the essential keys in the winter wardrobe.

Big, voluminous shoulders are very popular choices this season. Seen everywhere on the runway, from Rick Owens to Simone Rocha, the ‘inverted triangle’ silhouette trend makes a power statement, in various scenarios.
For a chic but simple approach, easy to style and wear everyday, the coat with an edgy, structured shoulder cut, as seen in Saint Laurent, works wonders in almost any wardrobe. If you feel a little more daring or you want to make a fierce style statement, go for the more dramatic, impressive tailoring around the shoulder, as seen at Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Isabel Marant.

Until they fall apart.
