Colours Reds and burgundys: scarlet shades and deep carbenet tones are big colours for the season, especially paired with denim. A new bright red is coming through and is used in knitwear – soft, frill jerseys with balloon-sleeve blouses. Aubergine and grape tones add depth. Spiced yellows, such as thatch and amber, are new colours on the scene and work best in knitwear. Think of pairing these colours with soft baked pinks to create a retro-vintage feel. Jewel shades – as in teals, ambers, deep amethyst and ruby reds – are particularly prevalent in the prints derived from Eastern motifs and florals. Military greens are gaining attention again due to the influence of the military look this season. The earthy green palette is prominent and mixed with jewel colours and inky blues for an updated look. Inky blues continue as core colours. Navy and indigos appear in casual separates, knitwear and outerwear. Prints Florals are here again for the season. You can expect to see full, bright blooms against dark backgrounds in flat, statement floral prints. Think of full, voluptuous roses on deep, dark backgrounds with Gothic undertones of contracting linear leaves and petals. Colours are rish with hard-edged glamour. Animal prints from zebra, snake, tiger, leopard. Quirky placements with cats, flamingos and other animals. Leopard print is updated with vibrant colours and abstract renditions. Eastern-inspired motifs continue this season with birds, tigers and cherry blossoms appearing in prints.

The glamour and new grunge look from the 1980s is making a comeback – as seen on the catwalk, which was full of loose tailoring and wide shoulders. You can expect to see power shoulders, carrot-style pants, satin high-neck shirts and cuffed joggers.

The military look

Classic military looks are on trend this season with deconstructed jackets and camouflage-printed knits, cuff pants with cargo pockets, and polyester-peach tops and leggings.

Greens this season draw on military influences: darker, forest, bottle and military greens are key in this palette, and are particularly suitable for utility wear.

Global pilgrimage | Eastern boho look

There is a coming together and mixing of global cultures, folklore and heritage. Designers have been collecting indigenous textiles, rugs and handcrafted tapestries and have used these elements in their prints.

Midnight florals

The influence of florals shows no signs of diminishing. This season its dreamy and exotic florals that take the stage as a core retail print theme. Florals may take on a prairie style with darker bases giving a new dried botanical look. Or bright psychedelic blooms are densely packed over a dark background offer an alternative to softer roses.

You can expect to see full, bright blooms against dark backgrounds in flat, large-scale, statement floral prints. Roses are key.

Eastern motifs

The Far East continues to have an influence on this season's fashion with motifs like birds, tiger stripes, cherry blossoms, lanterns and koi fish appearing in prints. They work well on moss crepes and satinised georgettes. Asian florals, in particular, are an important trend.
