Asymmetrical Treats After a spell of boxy cuts and silhouettes it seems that asymmetry is back in fashion. Previous seasons’ obsession was to show off the décolletage with styles such as off- the- shoulder single exposed shoulders and cold shoulders. Brands and high fashion labels alike have now tried to mix things up a bit this time around and have re- introduced the tried and tested element of asymmetrical detailing to the collections. The focus has been on hemlines – skewed and handkerchief hems and a diagonal angle on sleeves necklines layers gathers shoulders and slits that are observed over dresses skirts and even tops Silhouettes and Details

Ruching Rouge Drawstrings and gathered details seemed to pronounce curves this season with the technique showing up in numerous shows. If we are to somewhat connect this occurrence with the settling down of the athleisure craze we can easily relate this to the parachute style ruching that was everywhere for Spring 2017. It appears that the trend does not limit itself to sportsluxe categories but also extends out to evening and partywear with body hugging garments making a strong case in point. Windcheater jackets and oversized hoodies were other top contenders that cropped up. Silhouettes and Details

Bidding a strong farewell to sweetheart and plunging necklines recent showcases saw a new linear shape coming to the fore – the square- shaped neck. Drawing inspiration back to the Renaissance period squar-ish cut-outs made a strong case for the Spring 2018 season. Silhouettes and Details
