The Art of Style
Our modern lifestyle has had a major impact on the way we dress.
As a result, a new code of dressing has emerged to replace the more traditional feminine silhouette.
As we have seen over the past few seasons, Designers have deconstructed classic tailored looks and form fitting silhouettes, and reimagined them by playing with proportions and volume to create
looks that deliver comfort and practicality yet elegant and effortlessly stylish.
This directional shift in fashion is leading the trend towards dressing in a more architectural way which can be described as deconstructed tailoring, exaggerated silhouettes, bold new lines, and creative use of proportions.
Here is what you need to know to embrace the new codes of dressing and to build a modern silhouette that keeps you relevant:
The modern silhouette is an asymmetrical silhouette that disrupts the traditional rule of symmetry in classic dressing.

Use layering to create your own look by combining different textures, colours and proportions
Chunky shoes, sneakers, flatforms, loafers, complete the modern silhouette. They help balance the proportions and emphasize the contemporary feel.
Replace skinny jeans or cropped skinny pants with high waist, wide legged trousers for a more relaxed look.
Mix and Match
Do not hesitate to mix and match colours, patterns or fabrics to create your very own personal look.
Play with contrasts
Play with contrasts and opposites such as the cool balance between masculine and feminine, or a sharply tailored look paired with sporty casual elements.
Make a statement
Use volume to build a structural dramatic silhouette
