AW18 Womenswear Trends
We sketch the key trends, brands and highlight newness for the season aheadShop women's fashion
A new season means a welcoming a fresh wave of brands, trends and exclusive pieces to our carefully curated designer edit. From unique takes on fringing, checks and statement coats, to exciting injections from new-to-Liberty names Rokh and Nanushka, our in-house buyer Alexandra Gordon unveils the Liberty womenswear need-to-know for Autumn/Winter 2018.
"This is a brand distinctively tied to British roots and is the perfect fit for our quintessential British edit. The collection combines Parisian chic with New York edge."
"Winner of the LVMH Special Prize 2018, we are very excited to welcome Rokh to the brand mix. He brings a fresh new aesthetic to the floor."
"This vintage-inspired collection with dreamy print combinations will keep you coming back for more."
"Not only are we very excited to welcome Nanushka to the brand mix this season, we've also worked with them on a capsule range of their best-selling Hide jacket. We'll launch three limited-edition, exclusive Liberty print jackets in October - perfect timing as we go into those colder winter months!"
"We love our florals at Liberty London and the retro take on them this season resonated with us. They'll brighten up our wardrobe during those darker autumn/winter months."
"From all-over print to animal motifs, this season is going to be a zoo! You can get loud with an all-over outfit from the likes of Valentino, or make it more subtle - pared back with solid colours."
"There was a definite nod to the '70s on the catwalks, with many collections focusing on shearling, crochet and - most importantly - the colour rust. Rust is the colour of the season, shown everywhere from beautiful trench coats at Acne and Isabel Marant, to Sweatshirts at Loewe and satin trousers at Dries Van Noten."
"Checks aren't going anywhere this autumn. The highlights for me are the bright checks from the likes of Marta Jakuboswki, Marni, Dries, Tomorrowland and Sea NY."
"Forget your basic pea coat, this winter is all about the statement coat. From Calvin Klein's fireman coat and Richard Quinn's floral puffer, to Marques Almeida's bright shearling and Katharine Hamnett's Love Puffer - the options are endless."
