As monsoons shift, so does the way we dress. We let go of our summer pieces to make room for more cozy and cool weather-ready items. Amihan season started in the country, and for many fashion savants, it is the perfect time for layering. If you’re refreshing your closet and looks for the months leading to the holiday season, here are some trends and style inspirations we’ve seen from the freshest releases of brands and designers.
Dark and textures
Donning an all-black look is a fool-proof way to look put together. But this season, dressing in black means exploring different textures, from fabric manipulation to tailored pieces crafted with luxe textiles. Think of Paris-based Japanese brand Comme des Garçons’ fall-winter 2023 collection. Designer Rei Kawakubo’s menswear line presents monochromatic pieces that are deconstructed and reconstructed. Textures and fabric manipulation were some of the techniques highlighted in the womenswear line.
Whether it is presented through a sleek style or a more playful tone, metallic pieces are among the must-have items this season. The best way to infuse the trend in your style is to use it as an accent, like a cute belt, a chic choker, or hair accessories. Our top picks are from Coach’s “Shine” collection. Its champion pieces, the Tabby and the new Pen bag, come in metallic and patent iterations, perfect for men and women.
End of Quiet Luxury
Quiet Luxury reigned supreme in the past months, but it looks like things are about to change, as per the collections seen on fall-winter 2023 runways. One example of this is Tory Burch’s latest collection, which is currently on display until Oct. 30 at Greenbelt 5 in Makati City. Its “T monogram” collection centers on its signature pattern inspired by traditional quilting. Present on the display are bags, footwear, and fall pieces imbued with the brand’s iconic logo.
A subtle nod to the ‘90s
The ‘90s birthed many style inspirations that we rekindle with our OOTDs today like the baby tees, baggy jeans, and cardigans. It also solidified our love for sunglasses, whether they are small with thick frames or colored lenses. For this season, Sunnies Studio presents the perfect eyewear pieces to match your fall looks. Its June, Devon, and Cal sunglasses come in a variety of colors and shapes to suit anyone’s style. Plus, they are responsibly made with recycled polyester.
Plush and fuzzy
Coats and outerwear pieces are staples when it comes to fall dressing. Tailored ones can easily transition from formal to a more casual vibe. While shearling pieces have that cozy and cool vibe. Merging the two styles in one piece is Max Mara’s iconic Teddy Bear coat. The iconic piece first graced the runway in 2013, and as it celebrates its 10th anniversary, the brand reintroduces its plush, camel, faux fur, cocoon-cut cover-up for anyone looking to amp up and add a playful tone to their layering game.
