It might seem to be a bit perverse that just as summer is finally upon us, we start to look at the next season, Autumn and Winter. But fashion is like that, Spring is the season of the Autumn/Winter press days and today I have some of the shots from the F&F Clothing collections that will appear in stores from August.
Like Spring/Summer, the big news story is the 1970s. No longer the decade that style forgot, we are now seeing all the best elements – tailored flares and culottes, silk long sleeved blouses with pussy bow ties and printed tea dresses with knee high boots. We are also seeing the shades that the 70s is quite famously known for:- brown, beige, camel. A friend once told me, many years ago, that everything was brown in the 1970s, from sofas to wedding dresses. She was being ironic, but based on these rich chocolately tones, I don’t think it is such a bad thing.
Think luxe fabrics and stylish 70s ladies, Angelica Huston, Faye Dunaway, Jerry Hall, Diane Von Furstenberg and Ali McGraw. This is all the inspiration you will need for next season.
What do you think of the upcoming collection – are there any pieces that take your eye, or is it a little too 70s for your tastes?
