From Catwalk to Your Collection With V by Very

Fashion week’s fresh silhouettes and fabrics have a knack for leaving us with a thirst for all-new-everything. What quenching news then, that Very (and in particular, V by Very) has a line-up of runway-inspired pieces you’ll want to wear on repeat, all season long. Key themes for your Pinterest board: blush pink, gothic glamour, heritage punk and a coat (because, you know, cold). Here’s a little teaser of the fashion coming your way soon.

Blush Pink

From catwalk…

It would almost seem we were viewing the models through rose-tinted lenses on the AW16 catwalks, as delicate shades of blush proved unmissable. Designers brought its feminine appeal to life through swathes of liquid silk fabrics (Roksanda), ethereal ruffles and frills (Alexander McQueen) and shine-bright sequins (Holly Fulton).

To your collection…

Work the blush-toned theme into your wear-everywhere collection with lightweight knits, wide-leg trousers and 3D florals.

Gothic Glamour

From catwalk…

While whispers of gothic drama have permeated fashion of late, the catwalks brought full-on rebellious glamour to the forefront. This was seen through off-beat silhouettes (Christopher Kane), sheer panelling (Mulberry) and rich black velvet (Topshop Unique).

To your collection…

Go hell for leather with PU dresses and fierce block heels or tap into the softer side with romantic ruffles, feather-weight fabrics and draped silhouettes. We take our sartorial cues from Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi. Platinum blonde hair optional, leave the dragon at home.

Heritage Punk

From catwalk…

Iconic punk style is updated with British heritage influences this season. Mulberry’s catwalks showcased tactile checked fabrics and ruffled shirting, punctuated with studs and braces, while Le Kilt brought Scottish heritage to the forefront with tartan mini skirts.

To your collection…

Anything-but-dainty block heeled boots and checked fabrics are the order of the day here. Subvert the attitude-packed vibe with smart tailored silhouettes, or go grunge with fluid fabrics and faux leather jackets.

From catwalk…

Of course the onset of autumn and winter calls for a coat update. One you can layer over everything will be a power player in your wardrobe for the foreseeable. On the catwalk, Burberry adorned the iconic trench with 70’s snake print, while Prada’s patchwork of rich brocades were impossible not to take note of. Luxed-up leather with hits of colour were the order of the day for Celine and the indisputable stars of the show were bomber jackets, macs and military coats. 

To your collection…

Alongside a host of trench coats, leather-look jackets and macs, V by Very works all the catwalk trends into your outwear edit in the form of 80’s leopard print, faux fur fabrics and sporty bomber jackets.
