For more glitter in everyday life
Julia has been with TOM TAILOR for 7 years and has been a Concept Designer for the Contemporary team for one and half years. She loves to bring contrasting trends together and by doing so, create new looks. In this interview, Julia reveals which color could replace black as the new classic and which trends we simply cannot avoid this season.
Julia, please give us a few insights into the new fall/winter collection — what inspired you designers, and which theme and color journey are you going to take us on?
We draw inspiration from natural structures and surfaces, take a nostalgic journey into the 70s and wrap ourselves in new layered looks.
The collection draws on various themes such as rib textures, burnouts, metallics, bow details, long coats, flared pants and dark flower prints.
Flowing fabrics emphasize the femininity of the collection, as do this season's colors: Various shades of burgundy and pink are combined with neutral white, grey and beige tones. Dark blue definitely makes a comeback this season and frequently even replaces classic black.
Which trends can we not avoid this season?
There are two big themes for this fall/winter. We can't avoid the 70s: military details, bows, flower prints, ruffles and flared pants will accompany us throughout the season.
The second big theme is metallics: glitter and lurex is no longer (just) worn to parties. In particular, the contrast with romantic styles make this trend suitable for everyday wear and a real must-have!
What's your favorite piece from the current collection?
The metallic jacquard collection: the bomber jacket, skirt and sweater are my personal highlight. They can be mixed and matched with anything and make every outfit truly eye-catching.
