At last spring is almost, less than a week away, (touch wood) here. Well, only technically. 1st of September is officially the start of Spring Season in South Africa, but in Cape Town, according to me, it only really starts closer to mid-October.
Cape Town Fashion Week was about 2 weeks ago, therefore I’ve decided to do some research on all things ‘hot’ this upcoming spring/summer season by looking at local and international catwalks for inspiration and ‘guidance’.
This is what I’ve concluded:
White on white, black & white outfit & colour combos as well as black and white with a pop of colour.
Bold geometric print, especially in black & white.
Bold stripes & print.
Bermuda shorts & short suits.
Luxe leather and other ‘interesting’ textures.
Delicate beading, embellishment, fabric & design…think India, Middle-East & Russia.
Sporty & skater inspired dresses
Holographic & metallics.

In a follow-up post I will discuss how to incorporate these trends into your cupboard and seasonal fashion buys.
