One of the likely big trends in women’s wear for next is year monochrome black and white.  Think Bridget Riley, op art, stripes of varying lengths, maybe a bit of dogs tooth too.

Apparently stripey op art style dresses by the likes of Marc Jac0bs are predicted  to drip on down to the High St. 

Chances are that the mod monochrome look will also have an influence on menswear too, which is good news for the heritage brands who t are always selling 60 influenced clothes. Here are few items that are likely to be (coughs) bang on trend next year.

Dr Martens are back, just have a little faith here

By Jonathan Smith on August 11th, 2008

june08_drmartens.jpgDr Martens are one of these timeless brands, like Converse, who’s iconic shoes have changed little since they were first conceived, which in both these cases was many a moon before any of us were.

DMs fade in and out of obscurity with ease and have for the last few years been bubbling under the surface pulling their profits from the hardcore fans, but I predict a comeback. With early ’80s style being so hot right now it takes little imagination to make that jump to skinny acid washed jeans and a pair of Docs, but only time and perhaps our street style posts will tell.

For A/W 08 Dr Martens are bringing you the Monochrome range, the super simple 1460 boot available in either all black or all white, and if my prediction is worth its salt then these will sell well. Coming soon to Oki-Ni.

Wearing one colour all the time

While not as interesting as Lindsay Lohan going
topless
impersonating Marilyn Monroe, there was an intriguing feature in New York magazine about
people who wear all one
colour
. Don’t worry, black wasn’t allowed – otherwise it would have just
been a feature on Goths.

There’s a shoe designer who only wears
blue, a fashion designer in grey, an industrial designer who wears pink and
white at separate times (that’s two colours, the cheat), a fabric designer in
green and Stephin Merritt, who only wears brown.  The article is interesting if only for the
pomposity of the interviewees. The industrial designer (is that just fancy talk
for architect?) stated that wearing white made him feel “angelic and free”.
Presumably, wearing black made him feel like the grim reaper.
