TRENDS OF 2018

Beret
In the fall of 2017 there were suddenly Alpine hides everywhere in black, brown, pink and shiny leather. The trend will continue until 2018, when Dior showed alpine horses on several models during their SS18 show.

Lots of bling
Big earrings have come to stay, and it's regardless of whether it's gold, silver or similist, you choose to decorate your earflips by 2018.

Denim
In 2018, denim becomes one of the most dominant materials for jackets, skirts and of course jeans, but the material will be darker than in 2017, and the low-grade jeans will return.

Purple
Lilla has begun to take on the international fashion scene, where both Prada, Off-White and Versace showed designs in both dark and light-colored.

Stomach bag
In Denmark, the mavetask has long been a dominant trend thanks to Danish Yvonne Koné, but where the Danish interpretation was carried over the shoulder, the mavetaske is now back where it belongs to: About the stomach.

Transparent plastic and hard rubber
Chanel was plastic-fantastic at their SS18 show, where both shoes, bags, jackets and hats were made of transparent plastic, and Calvin Klein, Acne and Balenciaga showed clothes and accessories in colorful rubber. Therefore, we predict that 2018 will offer plastic a lot in both luxury and budget issues.

THE POST HOLIDAY COMEDOWN

Coming back from holiday is never ideal. Not only do you have to fight with the baggage carousel at Heathrow, then there’s going back to work, being poor from having eaten too many lobster rolls and having to do ALL the washing.

HOW did I wear all of these knickers?!!

Also I decided to do something really cute and agreed to work on the day I got back. So with my head hung in shame I had to wheel my suitcase on to the Piccadilly line after an overnight flight and go straight to my desk. Really nice forward planning there…

At least some miracle worker on British Airways made the sterling decision to put Bridget Jones in the film selection. I would get platinum air miles just for the pleasure of watching that at 35,000 feet.

In the week since our return, while I continue to be thoroughly deprived of sleep and eating 3 carbohydrate-solid meals a day to sustain my energy levels (tight trousers an inevitable side effect) I’ve been re-living my New York dream by having the photographs on a constant loop.

When I’m on my laptop it’s generally the rule of 3 – first tab whatever I’m actually meant to be doing, second tab photographs of Times Square and third tab Skyscanner on refresh trying to book my return as soon as possible.

One of my only regrets about when I lived in America was not making the effort to capitalise on internal flights and visit New York every damn weekend.

Probs too busy losing the feeling in my fingers in -40 degree temperatures. LOL memories.

It goes without saying that being fixated on your next holiday has lowered general productivity levels this week, but hey I’m blogging for the first time in ten days SO SCREW YOU CRITICS.

Afterall it’s tough being separated from your one true love and all it’s bountiful food and funning opportunities. And if you’ve never had the chance to visit, then I must insist that you get your little paws down to the travel agent (do they even still exist?!?!) and book those flights this minute.

You won’t regret it.

DONALD ROBERTSON

Henson had his puppets, Warhol had his soup cans, and now Donald Robertson has his walnuts! Many people have come to view the fashion world as elitist, and unapproachable, but what everyone seems to forget is… Fashion is nuts! Whether it’s Edie Campbell dressed in nothing but body paint and a headdress, or Iris Apfel sitting front row wearing her signature glasses and dressed in red fur, fashion is, and has always been wondrously mad.
