There are three key trends for autumn/winter womenswear this year: flowers, vintage and suits.
At The Swank, florals can be seen all over seasonal collections by Antonio Marras, Andrew Gn, and Tata Christiane.
Inspired by Modigliani's artworks, Antonio Marras combines florals with lace, embroidery and gauze on its green coat to create a feminine and modern rustic style.
Berlin fashion house Tata Christiane's Infinite Madone collection presnts surreal florals which are a mix of contemporary art and fashion details. An example is a red turtleneck knitted top embroidered with light blue lace, paired with pants with floral paintings and sneakers.
Another brand available at The Swank, Brunello Cucinelli, has a new line of suits to match different looks. A double-breasted plaid wool suit is contrasted against a casual leather belt and sneakers while a black wool blazer tops a grungy knitted vest, a gray plaid asymmetrical gauze skirt and pointed ankle boots.
A vintagy vibe can be found in accessories from Dolce & Gabbana, Etro, Roger Vivier and Simone Rocha. Roger Vivier's plaid and houndstooth handbag and shoes bring fresh looks by integrating the old and the new.
