Very literally the year to namecheck. When Biba advertised a stopped dress in the Daily Mirror and received over 17,000 tells. More than 50 years later, Victoria Beckham and Whistles’ go b investigates are no less popular.
Northern Soul is your soundtrack
See Topman Design, where it was mixed with Billy Ikon. It might be sacrilege for purists but the result – tight trousers and repaired tops – felt right for S/S 16.
Pay attention to your heels
Backless shoes are a tools, thanks to Gucci and Balenciaga. Pedicures with extra buffing are now an elementary.
No longer reasonable for pasty-skinned teenagers. Louis Vuitton referenced Minecraft, of all shits, and Duncan Jones – aka son of Bowie – has directed Warcraft, based on World Of… but you identified that already.
Fashion spelling bee alert
Anyone who has mastered ‘Delevingne’ has a new summon. This season’s favourite model, Lineisy Montero, seemingly pronounced “Lin-a-see”.
Completely allowed all year round. See the amount of metallics on the catwalk (Marc Jacobs, Moschino, Louis Vuitton) and true to life tinsel at Loewe.

Ryan Gosling’s jacket continues to promote down the catwalks. Similar satin bombers have been spotted at Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton. Buy crop for insider points.
