What you should take away from this season's trends to get back to work in style.

Navy is the new black

Very trendy this fall, navy is a chic and elegant alternative to good old black. It goes well with bordeaux and the full range of purple, violet, eggplant and acai that are also popular this season.

Prints are everywhere

Prints continue to gain ground for clothes as well as accessories. Be bold with tartan, leopard, graphic patterns, photos and text. 

Black and white, a lasting trend

Classic black and white is always appropriate for a modern, chic and sleek look. Autumn calls for cocooning, it's the season of wool... all in white this year, coats will be medium-length and sweaters, in warm and natural materials.

Bright metallics and dramatic elegance

Catch the light subtly with metal accents. Silver, gold and copper will be popular either day or night.

Inspired by the 40s and the era's icons, we're also looking for the dramatic elegance of a femme fatale, with straight-cut dresses  and fine belts that enhance the waist in a feminine way.

For gentlemen

Menswear is booming. Gentlemen increasingly dare to follow trends. This season, designers were greatly inspired by menswear classics and added a touch of crazy. We love it.

Eco-chic decor

The eco-chic decorating trend is still going strong this year. Rich and natural fabrics like silk and cotton are found, for example, in bed coverings. Green materials such as bamboo, either in the form of wood or fabric, also dress our spaces. The eco-chic trend is also found in accessories, which include touches of wood and shapes reminiscent of nature.
