Pre Fall 17: Redefined Retro Glamour

A sense of theatrical romance and flamboyance kicked off the Pre fall 17 shows, with the current obsession for ruffles, opulent fabrics and elaborate embroidery showing no sign of fading at fashion favourites Erdem & Altuzarra. Richly decorated leathers, look-at-me brocade suits, shimmering sequin midis and sumptuous marabou feathered fur jackets speak of old school glamour with a 1940s decadence and an ambient 80s power dressing influence.

The statement trumpet sleeve which reigned on the SS17 catwalk continues but the new showstopper is the statement blouson shoulder; combined with cinched waists & ruffles for an hourglass, almost regal inspired silhouette. There is no doubt that high street Heroines Topshop with their kitsch, vintage inspired brand DNA will be all over these shows next September. We have our eyes set on the bell sleeve midi shirt dress & long brocade boots sure to be a hit with the Topper’s fan base.
