5 Runway Trends Made for the Home
The final top fashion week show is underway in Paris, after circling the globe from New York, to London, to Milan, and it’s been a feast of fabulous new looks! Fashion inspires and informs my interior design almost more than anything else, so the last few weeks have been so much fun for me. Here are 5 of my favorite trends that I spotted on the runway that we’ll be seeing in the home soon!
1. Salute to Navy
Navy blue made a big statement in fashion this fall, especially inspired by menswear (see below). And just after Milan Fashion Week wrapped, Sherwin-Williams announced that Naval was its new Color of the Year for 2020. So this one is a sure bet.
2. Red + Pink
If you watched the Emmys, you saw the power of this combo! There must have been 5 women wearing pink-and-red color blocked gowns, and the look really does pack a punch. I have always loved this combo (see my Pinterest board here), and I am excited to see it come back in full force.
Patterns that are traditionally seen on mens’ suits are now showing up on skirts, gowns, capes, and more. There’s long been a love affair between menswear and furnishings, but look for the trend to be everywhere next year.
4. Bad Broads
On the other side of the spectrum, feminine looks are in, like florals and ruffles, but they have an edge. The florals are tempered with black. Ruffles have a metal edging. Fringe is made of chain. These feminine looks mean business!
5. English Tweed
Our Anglophilia continues (I’m not complaining!) with English tweeds coming to the fore, along with traditional plaids. Maybe it’s the Downton Abbey movie, or maybe it’s the Markle Sparkle, but I’m completely on board. And this trend is perfect for the home - imagine that Chanel fabric on a cozy club chair. Heaven!
