Graffiti Style Graphics As if to challenge the ordered patterns that graced the runway – graffiti was another popular print this year with fashion designers such as Brooks Brothers and Vivienne Westwood adding some carefully curated chaos to their designs. Many of the designs showed inspiration from a blending of pop-art or slogan styled themes, resulting in show-stopping, abstract clothing. For those who like to make a statement in the street, these are upcoming designs that will surely get you noticed for all the right reasons.
Tie Waist Jackets Knowing the typical British weather and the 3-4 days of summer they have each year, it’s no wonder that waist jackets are to make an appearance in SS18 collections.
