A/W 16 Trend: Opulent Luxe

Now the sun might be shining outside but here at zero2one, we are turning our attention to the key autumn/winter trends (predicted by Unique Style Platform), which are just around the corner!

One of the main AW16 trends that has caught my attention is Opulent Luxe.

So if you’re not a fan of minimal style, this is the trend for you as the hoarder with ‘a taste for the finer things’ finally reigns supreme.

Opulent Luxe has a maximalist aesthetic inspired by historical interiors and mystical references. This atmospheric mood has a gothic presence. It effortlessly combines the old and new with plush surfaces, hi-shine metallics and heavy embellishment.

(Think Roberto Cavalli living in a rock ‘n’ roll takeover of Downton Abbey!)

To recreate this look, opt for dark, saturated tones that are rich and luxurious, combining precious jewel shades with hi-shine surfaces in black, pewter and gold for dramatic effect. Prints and patterns are magical and textures for soft furnishings include devorè, velvet and damask for a sumptuous feel.
