Sustainability and environmental consciousness are coming ever more to the forefront when it comes to talking about fashion. Just recently “The Business of Fashion” published an article about Resale being bigger than fast fashion within the next 10 years.
These topics are also beginning to have an impact in what we see during Fashion Week itself.
John Richmond in particular used these current concerns as inspiration for his Fall 2018 collection – with the title “There is no Planet B”. This seasons runway show in Milan was about oversize, re-working vintage, printed graphics. A mix of techno and romantic. Fluorescent and black. Pointy shoes and faux fur. In his own words; “There are no rules only interesting mistakes”.
It is interesting to see distinctive trends being shown in a deep and meaningful way. Perhaps it’s a lesson for us all to look at the trends carefully and try to replicate them with what we have before going out and purchasing new.
Keep scrolling for highlights from the John Richmond – “There is no planet B”, Fall 2018 show in Milan.
John Richmond – There is no planet B
Note the hot pink – a colour that is staying through Spring2018 and into Fall as well.
Orange and Florals another theme to pick up on or keep hold of…
Tartan has been a feature for awhile – this is proof that it’s here to stay!
Touches of green and yellow seen in several looks for effect. A continuation of the yellow and green seen everywhere this Spring.
Note the pop socks above. You can’t see them so well but they were worn with several outfits and tights pulled over them – perhaps it’s an attempt to simulate stocking boots?
Puffer jackets in bright colours – who doesn’t love these – smile!
If you’re more of a pastel pink person then no worries, there is something for you too…
Red shoes are simply an essential in every wardrobe.

Great post Yvonne! I’m so happy to see the awareness grow around sustainable and ethical fashion. I can look fashionably fabulous without destroying our planet and other people’s lives.
Me too. Time for some real wardrobe shopping…making new outfits with existing clothing 😉
I loved this collection too and I agree that fashion resale is on a roll. I have been recycling my clothes this way for a few years now. Sarah x aka badassbabyboomer
That’s really impressive Sarah.
I have a sweet blogger friend who always offers to lend me clothing if I wish ( http://www.askthemonsters.com ) – I do the same but I have pieces I could never loan out and those I really don’t mind about. I guess this is normal right 😉
Lending being close to resale 😉 Never managed to resale – I always simply give away. Probably time to start reselling…
Love this post and being mindful and creative all at the same time 👌
Yes, it really inspired me too.
Thanks for the comment Susan.
