Gloves from Eclipse
Sun scarf by Eclipse? “And just like that, disco’s not dead,” said Harpers Bazaar. “The wide collar favoured by the Studio 54 set made a surprise comeback on the spring 2020 runways. “Modernised on coats, jackets, and button-downs at Lanvin, Ferragamo, JW Anderson, and beyond, the look is often shown with contrasting colours to make it really stand out. Because what’s the point of a super collar if you can’t really see it?” Can’t argue with that. Whether they’re long, narrow, bright or dark, expect to see a lot more of this triangular trend. “They aren’t going anywhere it seems. Everyone from Anna Sui to Giorgio Armani have hopped on the bandwagon and used them on the runways.” Between all these looks set to hit the shops, we’re confident 2020 is going to be a year with designs so groundbreaking that even Meryl Streep would have been satisfied.
Tailoring’s grip is as firm as ever for spring (if you’re looking to invest in an exemplary trouser suit, now’s the time) but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some new, well-cut proposals. Exhibit A: the shorts suit. Cut long and lean, falling just below the knee, at Givenchy they channelled what Clare Waight Keller called “raw, boyish energy”; at Max Mara, they had a crisp, faintly militaristic bent, thanks to Ian Griffiths’s stated desire to dress female assassins; and at Michael Kors, Salvatore Ferragamo and Rejina Pyo they looked positively peppy, cut high on the thigh. You might be sceptical now, but given how wedded you probably are to blazers, consider this trend a logical – and inevitable – progression.
You’re probably familiar with the slip dress and bustier tops, but this season, lingerie is taking center stage in the ready-to-wear world as opposed to its usual seat underneath it all. The title for this trend theme couldn’t be any clearer: Lingerie dressing is going way beyond the confines of the bedroom as traditional lingerie detailing such as hook and eye clasps, boning, garters, sheer paneling, tons of silks, lace, corsetry, and much more have worked their way into some of the most prominent spring collections. From Olivier Theyskens showing us that much less is much more to Dion Lee’s exciting take on all things boned and bound, the three trends ahead are our suggestion of where to start when it comes to tackling lingerie dressing this season.
Unisex – No gender. The classic neck gaiter is designed to fit most neck sizes and offers perfect neck sun protection. However, some folks prefer a more snug fit so that the gaiter will stay up for sure. If this is the case, please consider the adjustable neck gaiter with velcro tabs. Everyday, customers write in with new uses and ways to wear the neck gaiter and we’d like to share some of them here: fishing face mask, neck warmer, cool neck wrap by wetting the gaiter and allowing the evaporating water to cool the neck back and chest, neck gaiter for running, full sun face mask, nose sun protector, neck sun protection for front, sides and back of the neck and cooling head wrap.

Let’s discuss a few spring 2020 trends in the fashion world. If the thought of hot pants makes you want to run, Bermuda shorts are here to save the day. Putting a twist on the classic suit, designers from Bottega Veneta to Chloe to Givenchy embraced the Bermuda short suit for spring. Part nine-to-five, part California cool, meet the next wave of the bike short trend. Tom Ford offered a more playful take on the Bermuda suit—opting for a hot pink mismatched-fabric iteration. Wearing Bermuda shorts off-duty or posing for street-style photographers is harmless. But wearing them in corporate setting can be tricky. Pro tips: keep the colors dark, and pair them with sleek button-downs.
