As anyone who has attended will know, fashion week is very much akin to a safari. All manner of species gather around the watering hole every four months to plume their feathers and size each other up—and of course, there’s the mandatory gaggle of tourists snapping away, hoping to catch a glimpse of the creatures in their natural habitat. If you stay very quiet, you might just be able to hear the tapping of their kitten heels hitting the pavement and the gentle rustle of their tulle midi dresses as they step into their chauffeur-driven cars.
Yep, it’s a wild and wonderful fashion world out there, and over the course of 2018, we’ve been observing the comings and goings of these fascinating creatures, documenting their every move and making notes of their seasonally changing coats. The result? A definitive guide to the seven style tribes that dominated the last 12 months. Some you can probably guess (anyone for “old” Celine?) while others might not be so obvious to the untrained eye (wait till you see the fashion cats).
So get out your binoculars, put on your safari gear and prepare to immerse yourself in the fashion fauna and flora. Scroll down to see the style tribes that ruled the animal—I mean, fashion—kingdom this year.
