AW18 Press Day: The Trends We’re Loving

Yesterday we showcased our upcoming collections to some amazing bloggers, influencers and press for a day (and night) to remember! Here at RI, we don’t like to exclude, so we’re giving you the inside scoop to next season’s trends. And while you may not be ready to start thinking of AW just yet, we’ve handpicked some of our favourite pieces to give you a sneak peek…

Breakfast was served by the lovely ladies at The Social Kitchen. Glitter croissants and rainbow cake? We were sold. 
The boys at Babek Brothers served a Greek feast for lunch and we had cocktail and candyfloss aficionados making Cyro Pimms and laser-cut candyfloss.
(Our minds were blown too. )

So what’s AW18 looking like, we hear you ask? Next season is all about four key trends: 80s, Heritage, Bijou and Street Chic.

80s is a throwback to everyone’s favourite era with structured shoulders, trophy jackets and statement colours.
Wear with faux fur accessories in bold colours and your go-to heel for party season.

Heritage takes inspiration from countryside chic with clean checks, layering and cosy faux fur in warm brown tones.
The 90s print puffer jacket is going to be a huge player this AW and we can’t wait to wear it. Layer over a chunky knit and wide leg trousers.

Bijou brings back vintage-inspired knitwear, luxe boucle fabrics and the cape.
Your nice top gets updated with feminine frills and rich tropical prints for cocktails with the girls. Wear with a maxi coat and heels to take you from day to play.

Street chic introduces us to monogrammed denim and diamante embellishments to luxe up your daywear. There’s only one rule: anything goes. Mix up styles with a statement shirt and track pants.
