Word: Lauren Carbran
If all the happenings on the SS19 catwalks passed you by, you’ll be having major FOMO right now. But fear not, we’re here to give you the lowdown, so you can match your wardrobe and designer fragrance to the hottest fashion trends of the moment.
Trend #1: California surf style
Beach vibes were everywhere on the catwalks, from tie-dye tops and denim shorts to full-size surf boards at the likes of Etro, Calvin Klein and Prada. Want a summery scent that will transport you to Cali? Look to Hollister Wave For Her, which mixes blackberries, star fruit, sandalwood and sunlight accord (that’s right, they’ve even bottled the smell of sunshine!). And we want in! One sniff and you’ll be on Malibu Pier, watching the surfers ride the waves. For guys, Paco Rabanne Invictus Aqua is a top pick for aquatic fragrances. It’s inspired by the smell of the ocean, with wafts of marine accord, grapefruit zest and violet leaves. Say hello to your new favourite fresh scents!
Trend #2: Bow fever
Life’s better with bows. And we loved spotting them on the SS19 catwalk, whether they were tied around the hair, waist, neck or shoulder. From tight-waisted vintage bows at Moschino to extra-large neck bows at Marc Jacobs, we’re totally ready to wear them throughout the spring. Want a perfume to match? Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Bowdacious perfectly complements the trend, with its gorgeous bottle designed with super-cute pink bows. The smell? A sweet gourmand blend of mandarin, pear, melon and coconut. We’re big fans of the designer fragrance YSL Mon Paris, too, which is all about the statement black bow. Dive into the notes of pear, white flowers and musk on first spritz. Divine!
Trend #3: Yellow vibes
We were loving the bold yellow on the SS19 runway, especially the Givenchy killer one-shouldered dress and THAT Marc Jacobs raincoat. Need a yellow fragrance in your life? Of course you do! Cue Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine, where fruity meets woody, thanks to the accords of white strawberries – which have a pineapple-like flavor – and white woods. Guys will love Cartier L’Envol de Cartier for work, play and every day. The sweet and warm blend of honey, musk and patchouli is long-lasting on your skin, so expect this to be your new essential.
