Fall 2014 at Images That Suit

Fall has a lot of variety, practicality, beauty and imagination. Clothing has both a tailored and artisan vibe and is eminently wearable and relevant to our lifestyles. Textiles are rich and there is a vibrant aesthetic to our Images That Suit fall collection.

Fashion Trends

Normcore which means standing out by blending in. Fashion writers have called this trend a palate cleanser after the abundance of print and pattern and separates. Normcore is all about detail-free design. It's a barely audible style that suggests ingrained authority and inner confidence. Normcore wearers are fashionable people who chose clothes that have simple clean lines, rather androgynous looks with strong modern tailoring, that communicate sophistication and stature. In other words ‘down to earth out of this world fashion’. This means the tailored matched jacket and skirt or pant is a big trend. Both short and long tailored suit jackets are key.

Knit Wit, a proclivity for the cozy, the oversized, for the alluring. Fall brings us knits with textures and tweeds, leather trims, zippers, cable knit, print and colour block detail. Imagine chic chunky sweaters by the fire side with your favourite wine…you get the picture.

Eccentric Furs were a fur sure on the runway. You might think these pieces are hard to pull off, but if you keep the rest of your look simple—think a pair of blue jeans and a solid top these can add a fun, fur ’70s vibe.

Colours for fall include a bold red, a radiant purple, a bright cobalt blue, a classy cognac, a yummy toffee, a vibrant teal, a soft pastel blue, accents of soft pink… and to ground it all; black, grey and chocolate were designer favorites.

Edgy Elements rocked the collections with sleek real and vegan leather, denim, mesh and mohair, sheers and chiffon, ruching and draping, metallic and glitter. Watch for the modified biker jacket, slim pant, and leather and suede trims on jackets and knits.

Print and Pattern give us new offerings. Watch for landscapes, photo-real images, surreal florals and animal prints. Classics are still strong so we will see dots and geometrics as well but often you will see mixed media prints: a combination motif.

Check It Out because checks and plaids made commanding statements on the runway: subtle or bold, dark or bright.

Quilt…the Detail is what fall 2014 is all about. You will see quilt details as accents on skirts, jackets, tops and outerwear, draping detail on tops and dresses, zipper and lace elements

Fall Channels the 60’s with over the knee boots, moto boots, suede, crop jackets, short skirts, silky blouses, embroidery, mixed and abstract prints and chiffon; a play of hard and soft.

The ‘New York’ Styleoffers shirts inspired by menswear designers offering contrast print inside the cuff and collar and placard with interesting tone on tone and ditsy arty prints to round off a sensational tailored shirt for women. Soft blouses make a revival as normcore is popularized.

Shoes and Boots are all about variety; a simple pump, chunky heel, high sleek heel and flats; booties, and knee and thigh high boots. Watch for the elegant details like ankle straps, buckles, zippers, tassels, chain, studs, contrast fabrics, croco, patent and suede.

Finishing Touchesare both elegant and edgy. Designers offer us regal, gypsy and exotic jewelry. We will see lavish bibs and collars, big pendants on long chain or cord…from the elaborate to the simple.... layers of chains in all sizes, fringes and tassels, mixed metals (white, yellow, rose, bronze, hematite and black), polished or burnished, black on black, pearls, chunky rocks and crystals and colour stone mixes. Scarves appear in every size with variety in patterns  being boundless.
