A/W 17 Trend Report - Star Motifs

The 'Americana' trend has been hanging around for a few seasons now. You may remember Marc Jacobs all out 'Americana' themed collection for S/S 16 - with stars and stripes galore. Then for Pre-Fall 17 the trend re-emerged but with a comic book spin on things, throwing graphic symbols and comic book iconography into the mix. So it comes as no surprise that 'Star Motifs' were a key trend as seen on the A/W 17 runway. Henry Holland delivered a knockout collection featuring bold star prints emblazoned proudly on dresses, jackets and cowboy boots. Mugler delivered a dose of David Bowie with one shoulder embellished cut-out star dresses. The perfect evening mini dress if I ever did see one. The Starman would approve! Putting a further spin on the look, Nina Ricci added illustrations of rodeo riders into the mix, but kept away from the Americana colours for a more everyday wearable look. Tods also toned down the colours to keep things a little more sophisticated.
