Autumn/Winter Shapes and Cuts

As we look back at the catwalks of January and February, one striking feature was the emphasis on ultra-feminine shapes. Hourglass-shaped garments and vintage silhouettes were everywhere, celebrating the feminine form in all its glory. Adding to the allure were the long winter coats, not a novelty in themselves, but this time they arrived slightly longer, extending their elegance and sophistication into a new dimension of grace.

In a delightful contrast, the fashion world also embraced the cool nonchalance of dropped waist trousers and skirts, offering a chic and relaxed vibe. Alongside these winter trends, the crop jackets maintained their position, providing an edgy and youthful contrast with their unconventional cuts.


We also witnessed a tribute to the 80s and 90s - a period known for its daring fashion statements. This season, sharp square forms created by high padded shoulders made a significant comeback, adding a touch of retro-glam to modern outfits.

Colour Trends: From Bold to Classic

The winter trends for colour palette this season is as diverse as it is stunning. Reds and deep reds dominate, bringing warmth and intensity to the colder months. Shades of pink are still in vogue, likely a residual effect of the Barbiecore trend.


Beige, a winter staple, is also flooding the streets, offering a versatile and chic option. And, of course, the timeless sophistication of black and white remains a strong contender, as seen in creations by Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney and Valentino.

Lilac and light shades of purple has emerged as a surprising yet enchanting player in this winter's colour trends, challenging traditional winter palettes. Often reserved for the freshness of spring, these shades bring a soft, whimsical charm to the colder months they offer a refreshing contrast to the typical deep tones of winter fashion.


Metallic shades and shimmering tones emerged as a standout colour captivating audiences with their allure. Palettes ranging from silver, gold, bronze and iridescent rainbow shades are not just confined to evening wear; they appeared in casual and streetwear styles as well, demonstrating their versatility.
