“The temperatures are dropping, the skies are grey, and it seems as though beach days are behind us this year.” The cooler temperatures mean more outfit options and fewer complaints. It’s time that we give a wave to scorching summer. In a post Time’s Up era, designers experimented with female sexuality and style. With chintzy patterns taking a lead everywhere from amazing home decors to furniture and dresses, it is ruling with ease. 2018 autumn/winter collection is saying that chintzy dresses are not only made for summers this year they are walking along with every month. The word “chint” means “printed cloth” in India, which is where most of the fabrics originated. Back in the 1600s, “chintz” ended up working its way from cushions on to clothes. It had style and status. Just scroll our gallery to see the glimpse of amazing dresses which were ruling the ramp for the upcoming winter season.
“I wanted to use the bright pop colours with a classic print to create depth and something that was quite unpredicted,” says Mulberry creative director Johnny Coca. “Using an eccentric treatment on a classic base brings modernity,” explains Johnny Coca. Alessandro Dell’Acqua at Rochas had a similar take: “A woman who is sophisticated and keeps this cool aesthetic that you find in the chintzy dresses from the Seventies,” is how he described the vibe. “I think floral print is always feminine and brings freshness and a great attitude to a silhouette.” It’s no surprise to discover that Richard Quinn 2018 collection involved pleats on asymmetric flyaway hems.
