Monsoon AW17 Press Day

Discover the Monsoon AW17 collection with behind-the-scene highlights from our exclusive press event in Soho, London. Be the first to see the key new trends, and meet the pieces that will form the foundation of your next-season wardrobe.

New Textures

From textured knits to rich jacquards, the new collection brought effortless, yet quietly luxurious, fabrications back to the fore. High-necked mini dresses and signature wrap-style designs featured floral prints in vivid palettes, complemented with shimmering metallic accents. Finer details came in the shape of intricately-formed embroideries placed on knits, including bees and ditsy blooms.

 

Modern Motifs

AW17’s obsession with prints didn’t end there. From richly-hued florals to bohemian motifs, patterns dominated the rest of the collection, with free-flowing dresses and structured co-ords championing the trend. Embroideries and even sequins made their way onto daywear designs, while muted colour palettes made geometric tribal patterns feel relevant for cold weather wardrobes.

 

Elevated Embellishments

Showstopping eveningwear came in the form of embellished dresses. Berry-hued flowers bloomed across black lace silhouettes, while gold stars, trailing leaves and lustrous green sequins added extra drama to key occasionwear pieces. Jewel-toned leopard prints and brocade patterns also stole the show, while pleats proved their staying power for yet another season. As for the cover-ups? Plush velvet and faux fur were the clear winners on the AW17 party agenda.
