After four weeks, the spring/summer 2018 fashion shows have ended, having given rise to a host of covetable new trends. New York kick-started the season with maximalism taking hold of the catwalks, as seen in looks dominated by Wild Western wear and sequins. There was a distinct feeling of nostalgia in Milan this season, with many designers celebrating milestones in their house’s history; at Versace, Donatella Versace paid tribute to her brother Gianni with a striking show that featured prints inspired by the label’s famous collections of the early 1990s. In Paris many looks were devised to appeal to millennials, with labels such as Chloé, Carven, Lanvin and Givenchy creating designs for a younger generation of women. The change in direction at many French fashion houses meant a shift in design process, and the best looks mixed trends such as romanticism with tough Wild Western-style sensibility, as seen with technical fabric jackets placed over pretty slip dresses. Take a look at the best trends for spring/summer 2018 here.
