Duality in grey in 2014/15 fall/winter trends

Movement, shadow play, reflection, mellowness, duality can be expressed with grey. It is really breathtaking to see how designers interpreted the stylish shades of gray. How? First, materials in Fall/Winter 2014/2015 trend capture light and reflection which adds depth and further meaning to pure black and pure white. Secondly, surprising coatings alter the look and properties of the fabrics, reflecting a dynamic show of shadows. Such a stylish coating might reflect aluminium, a futuristic stainless steel.

You cannot go wrong with black and white combinations in this season, either. They hold dominance in an updated context of proportion and dimension expressed with new patterns and fabrics. In monochrome (Alexander McQueen) or creative abstracted patterns (Roland Mouret).
