With deconstruction leaving a mark in the world of fashion, distressed elements are quickly creating an impact on the Fall 2017 runways. From patchwork details to bright colours, there’s nothing quite like deconstruction to breathe life into your wardrobe. On the catwalks, Diane von Furstenberg, Simone Rocha and Junya Watanabe all presented a series of high drama, eye-catching designs. Try drawing your sartorial inspiration from these designers, and stepping out in the deconstructed trend today.
Diane von Furstenberg
At DVF, funky tones and bohemian chic patterns created an explosion of colour and print. The deconstructed trend made a trend in the form of a V-neck dress, with a cut-out side and bright pops of red and blue. Layered over crisp off-white trousers and textured black booties, the overall aesthetic was carefree and feminine.
Simone Rocha played with varying textures, in the form of sheer black fabric and glittery floral appliqués. Paired with ruffled black bottoms and a classic white blouse, this overall ensemble had vaguely Victorian vibes.
At Junya Watanabe, structured, architectural elements set the stage for the design aesthetic at work. We are liking the furry dark pink and leopard print patches on this dress, along with the contrasting plaid panels. Paired with fishnets and chunky black leather boots, this look is certainly not for the shrinking wallflower.
