At Beyond Retro were always keeping our eyes peeled for the latest trends that are sashaying down the runway. I know, youre probably thinking Why? You sell vintage, but despite the fact that we predominantly work with pre-owned product and fabric, fashion trends are central to everything that we do. After looking to the catwalk for inspiration, our product team advises our extensive network of pickers on what trends or garments will be popular in the coming season. Our Beyond Retro LABEL range also allows us to make clothing with a more contemporary feel, so its essential that were up to date with whats hot and whats not. We feel that translating modern trends into vintage helps us to provide an even more fabulous selection - hopefully you agree!
So what trends will be emerging over the next six months? One trend that we noticed time and time again for AW16 was warm shades of copper. The last few years have been dominated by greys, blacks and whites as minimalism took over the runway. I dont know about you, but weve been crying out for some COLOUR. All black everything just doesnt do it for us every single day, so we were happy to see copper making a strong appearance alongside the expected navys and dark greens. Whether you go for a long wool coat or just a small hint in a pair of socks, this reddish brown is a subtly stylish way to add a vintage feel to your wardrobe while following a contemporary trend.
