Here at NL Collective we’re zeroing on the recurring motifs that the fashion community and consumers can expect to encounter next season in showrooms, blogs, and fashion editorials.
The season’s take on embroidery alludes to the craftsmanship of certain designers who’ve mastered this couture trend without the appearance of shards of glass (as interesting as that does sound) There is certain ostentatiousness about one adorning themselves with mirrors flashy enough to blind an unfortunate onlooker. Viktor and Rolf’s, whose runway featured an antique mirror, used this trend as a strategic fashion-branding tool; several tops featured a decorative motif of the designer’s name. NL Collective Group was also impressed with Lavin’s creative director, Alber Elbaz’s, ornately embroidered vest, jumpsuit, and trousers, which featured this couture trend. Somehow I predict this trend is very marketable for campaign boards, the aesthetic is just wow! Luckily, this trend isn’t limited to apparel. For your accessory pieces, Junya Watanabe and designer Young and Ng supply dazzling pieces. Watanabe’s take on this couture trend was a plethora of helmets, in sync with her active wear motif, with dazzling jewels embedded. Young and Ng’s interpretation of this couture trend features a series of edgy cuff pieces that will dress up any outfit. Accessories are also carrying over into the next season as an important revenue-building source for fashion brands; in case apparel fails, at NL Collective our mantra is "just accessorize"!
