A vest over his shoulder, a hat, a small bag … here are just all the BCBG details that Hedi Slimane picks up at her Celine fashion show. A tribute to the late 1970s and early 1980s and an accompanying dressing room, reminiscent of the left coast of Paris. With chic and practical attire, such as a checkered pants skirt, white blouse, print heel, black blazer and knee-high boots. A style that sets trends.

2. Houndstooth and Tartan
In overall appearance or combined with each other, with large or small checks, in flaps, tartan or knit …. This winter is all hip, what is possible with checkered patterns. Dior set the tone for this trend, which will prevail in the fashion industry. We dare the most incredible combination of Scottish checks and floral prints that add a new modernity to ultra-classic fabrics.

3. Bright colors
They are present at many fashion shows and bring momentum in styling. Wear these strong pieces – dresses, coats, pants – in bright colors. Purple, lipstick red, Yves Klein blue or fluorescent yellow. An important trend for brave businesses that have the right customers.

4. Grunge is not dead
The winter of 2019 seems to be backed by the myth of grung and his Messiah: Kurt Cobain. A return that makes sense in the fashion cycle. It's been a quarter of a century since the grunge movement peaked. It will now be brought by current art executives from major luxury brands who have experienced their origins and introduced them to young people. The exhibits will need to skillfully combine the pieces to get this intentionally careless look.

Saw Saint Laurent, Gucci and Louis Vuitton: The "Gothic" trend is back in the spotlight. Black again in all shades and in many different materials: leather, lace, denim, but also accessories (belts, bags, shoes) make it look. And makeup is also of particular importance for underlining the look.

6. Excessive shoulders
We went back to the 1980s, with its very textured silhouette. In this very invigorating wardrobe, jackets, coats and other tops are worn in a large cut silhouette. An oversized, very boxing woman takes the lead.

7. Leopard print (continued!)
That continues and has been trending for many seasons. Probably the most popular print animal, as well as black color, have become a fundamental part of women's clothing. From luxury brands to cheap designers and brands – no one can ignore this trend. A few of these pieces should guide you in their business.

8. New Western
Already present at the latest fashion shows, the western trend for the winter of 2019 has been confirmed, but continues in Resort 2020 collections. Viewed in Louis Vuitton, Paco Rabanne, Balmain and Gucci, where the trend takes on outlines, hats, suede short jackets, bolo ties , big belts and cowboy boots.

9. Silver and pearl jewelry
Pearls are the trend of the moment in jewelry. Concept stores or fashion boutiques have been sought after for jewelry brands that offer this trend. The pieces are imaginatively combined, as the Pascale Monvoisin jewelry label dictates. Fast fashion chains are already offering their variants at mini prices.
