First practiced by the peasants in Scotland and then perfected in England, crochet made it all the way to the New York runway shows. Fresh and lightweight for summer, the artisan craft which was extremely popular in the 1970s came back to the spotlight after a brief decline in popularity. Making a grand revival, designers like Michael Kors and Rodarte sent full crocheted pieces down the catwalk.

Showstopping and iridescent, intense luminosity is a big trend for Spring 2019. Previously reserved for performers and pop icons, and most popular in the late 90s (take Britney Spears’ famous red latex jumpsuit on her video for ‘Oops…I did it again!’), glossy and buoyant fabrics are making a resurgence, now being available in mundane scenarios such as work, school, and daily life.
