Tulle, taffeta, pastels and androgyny – a few familiar trends cropped up on the catwalk at the SS19 LFW shows. The Little House on the Prairie vibes were cute, and nice, but we were struck by a trend far more reminiscent of our Evanescence days: punk.
Inspiring us to dig out the black pencil liner (no longer our over-sharpened ‘Miss Sporty’ number), and crank up some TATU, the catwalks showcased Burton-esque females with fierce hair styles. Saturated colours, monogram buzzcuts, and neon wire laced throughout. The shows were dystopian in style and in short – really, really cool.
Since most offices dictate an aesthetic that doesn’t quite align with the ‘cyber goth’ extremes we spotted on Sunday, we’ll be embracing more muted elements of this trend most notably; glowing skin, choppy cuts, and metallic nails. Join us – it’ll feel a little 1980 all over again.Book beauty
