There was a notable split in how designers presented their autumn/winter 2019 collections this season. Traditional haute couture influences infiltrated many collections in New York and London, with exaggerated volume, couture dresses and stunning tailoring coming to the fore. Elsewhere, however, there seemed to be a shift towards more commercial, shoppable presentations. Many designers seemed to place more emphasis on wearability this season, with covetable, catwalk-to-pavement looks reigning supreme. This wasn’t to say the AW19 collections were mundane but creativity was harnessed in a way which appealed to the many not the few. Classic, elegant pieces seemed to be favoured here, with brands such as Hermès, Chloé, Dior and even Maison Margiela offering simplified yet stunning ready-to-wear. For autumn/winter 2019 the sportswear and logo-mania trend that took over the last few seasons has gone, replaced by elegant, refined silhouettes that are sure to stand the test of time.
