6 Trends from the Fall 2019 Couture shows!

What does couture fashion look like on the eve of a new decade? Ready to party, for one. The Fall 2019 season was sexier than we’ve seen in a while, with designers making generous use of cutouts and revealing miles of legs through slits or short lengths. Peter Dundas proposed elevated festivalwear with a boho vibe, while others highlighted the form with draperies à la grecque. Delicate pastels balanced out the darker palette seen at Christian Dior, where Maria Grazia Chiuri showed an almost all-black collection.

Color and romance have become the signature of Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli, and he delivered both in his tear-inducing lineup. Among his proposals were fringe and animal prints, which prowled through many a show.

Tailoring, a major story in the last round of ready-to-wear shows, was also strong. As Vogue Runway’s Nicole Phelps noted, several collections opened with a suit; Alexandre Vauthier’s were especially neat.

Adding interest to the week’s proceedings were dramatic sleeve and shoulder treatments that nodded, depending on your perspective, to the still-trending 1980s or to seraphim. But the stars of the season were the dream dresses, seemingly inspired by Shakespearean heroines. Many were full-skirted, caped, or had floor-sweeping sleeves. For the client who wears one of these, all the world is sure to be a stage.

Well Suited

Tailoring was a key message of the season, and, borrowing from Le Smoking, it looked strongest in black and/or white.

Leading Ladies

A feminist take on Shakespeare’s Ophelia is playing at the movies. On the runways we saw a raft of romantic, voluminous dresses seemingly inspired by the Bard’s unforgettable heroines.

Wild Life

Whether woven, embossed, or embroidered, animal prints looked spot on.

Greek Dressing

Are clothes modern? Classical draping certainly seems to be. More often than not this season, it was used in a skin-revealing way.

Winging It

Eyes up! Inspired by the 1980s, or perhaps angels, shoulders and sleeves delivered structured drama.

Soft Touch

Many designers are easing into the new decade with soft rather than strident palettes.
