Even if you are spending Fall predominantly at home, let’s make sure you do it with style. We’ve mentioned before, Fall isn’t really about new ideas, but more about more ways of wearing them, which means that color combinations feature heavily. The Victorian blouse is a big hit this fall, but imagine the difference in attitude when you swap your usual creme version with a hot pink one! Read on, for all the greatest color combinations as inspired by the season’s hottest designers.
Interior Design Shades at Jacquemus
Jacquemus is undoubtedly a disruptor, whose thoughts and designs seriously affect the fashion landscape. His lack of consideration for what is actually trending makes him stand out as a free spirit in an industry plagued with PR and media attention focus. For this Fall season, Jacquemus has opted for shades of moss green, caramel, off white, taupe, and grieve. All shades often considered for interior design. The result is sculptural, as these shades allow the eye to see the cuts and textures more vividly, which is really his strength.
The Balmain Army’s Shades of Brown
Olivier Rousteing’s vision for Balmain was crystal clear for Fall. An orchestra almost of rich deep shades of the earth. From the deepest brown to the warmest shades of creme and khaki, with a splash of metallics and reds for effect. These colors, now classics of course were given a one over with Rousteing’s magical play on textures. Yes, brown is timeless but how do we feel about brown shiny patent, plastic almost. This texture catapults the collection to a modernity that is fitting of the elegant and visionary designer.
Alexander McQueen’s Take On Timeless
No one does modern classics quite like Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. Her ability to blend the most striking of color combinations, yet still leave enough room for the eye to appreciate the cut is quite masterful. This season, Burton added a beautiful shade of aubergine to her traditional colorway of black, white, and red. This color combination was particularly striking when seen in a patchwork style in leather. As we said, it’s part of the colors and part of the textures and materials used, which finish off the look perfectly, keep an eye on both.
Fendi’s Romantic Take
There was a lot of romance in the color combinations presented at Fendi for Fall 2020. Soft yet deep shades of khaki and tan brown leathers were elegantly matched to ice-cream shades of blush pink and light yellow knits. Add to that the sharp cuts, strong shoulders and well-defined waists, and there was certainly a lot to take in. The fact that the hair was scraped back severely also added to the final dramatic effect. And we haven’t even mentioned the futuristic boots yet! These shades were also present at Marc Jacobs, but with a decidedly more retro appeal.
The Sexy Girl Next Door by Tom Ford
There were plenty of color combinations on offer in Tom Ford’s Fall 2020 presentation, from bright purples and Fuschia’s to timeless denim, grey and tiger skin. The real takeaway however was Tom Ford’s ability to take some of the most timeless and traditional colorways and to bring them together in a thoroughly modern way. Shiny silver diamanté, black velvet, tiger skin, heather grey and denim aren’t always cool.. Sometimes they can look terribly frumpy, and a quick peek into your grandmother’s wardrobe, may uncover a few of these combos. Ford, the master of seduction brought these together in an effortlessly sexy way that I can’t wait to try on, in front of the mirror, during our next lockdown weekend ;))))
The Pop by Gucci
I would be lying if I told you that I totally get Alessandro Michele’s vision. It is in fact a celebration of chaos. We are able to identify his color inspiration for the season though, which involves a combination of wholesome neutrals, a splash of black, then matched to a pop of color. The pop is up to you, although we must say Michele’s favorite was definitely a sea green. We think burgundy could be a good option! Go for it!
