A First Look at The Now


“This season is about a woman’s strength… a woman who is confident in her self-expression, one who can be adventurous and strong, without ever losing her femininity.”
The Now“, Lane Crawford‘s Autumn/Winter collection, which is beginning to be shown in highly edited and inspirational displays in stores, is such a departure from previous seasons that it instantly makes you extremely covetous. For any fashion lover, a quick glance will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Clearly showing the impact of the recent global financial turmoils, gone are ruffles and soft pale wistfulness, and in their place come shoulder pads and sleek black leather punched with metal studs and shocks of neon. One can read the message very clearly – only the strong survive.

That’s not to say you can’t glitter and shimmy your way into this brave new world. Shiny mesh dresses, chains and cuffs by the armload and metallic leather Doc Martens; these will be your fashion armour. Animal prints, which began to gain momentum during Spring/Summer, are roaring hot, with leopard pieces from Dolce and Gabbana, Christian Louboutin and Stella McCartney the best of the wild bunch.

Black is never boring this season, with distressed textures, exposed zips and artfully ripped fabrics. Statement bags, if you ever thought they went away, are back with a vengeance. Alexander Wang‘s innovative pieces in particular are flying off the shelves, so if you miss them now, you may miss out.
Some designers have decided to venture down different paths. Thakoon has gone floral with flirty chiffon minis, and Roland Mouret with his RM line has explored origami-inspired jewel tone dresses. After several years of mixing colour with black being a bit of a don’t, suddenly it looks fresh and new again. A glamorous statement red lip will always be the best accessory to black after all.
