What do you get when you cross the glam of the ’80s with the bohemian freedom of the ’70s? well, you get the Longchamp Fall Winter 2019 collection. Although it is, of course, in every way a collection, it also isn’t. Each piece has been designed to work together but also to stand apart. It is made to mix with other styles, looks and even other brands. Basically, it is a collection of statement pieces.
The look of the show saw a blend of ’80s glam which included pleated and studded skirts and oversized jackets. The ’70s were greatly represented with boho looks which included ruffles, loose sundresses, exaggerated sleeves and vintage styled knitwear. The other throwback saw the transition between the ’70s and ’80s that, those of us who lived through this, rocked with great style. The platform boot. This was reproduced in mustard yellow (a ’70s staple) and that iconic ’80s look – python skin!
Other trends that have been popping up everywhere was also present in the Longchamp Fall Winter 2019 collection. A major theme as spotted in the Ralph Lauren show is the usage of black and white. The usage of typography was also spotted with many of the pieces sporting LGP, the new
Longchamp’s bold new logo. Another large trend that was very clearly spotted at the show was animal print.
The show closed in a fabulous long-haired white coat that immediately screamed Kate Moss. Ironically Kate was sat in the front row next to Kendall Jenner (the face of Longchamp). In conclusion, the Longchamp Fall Winter 2019 collection is a bold yet subtle look. It is for the fearless. It is neither completely modern nor completely vintage-inspired. It is for the strong and feminine women that rule the world.
