I don’t quite know what it is, but as soon as July hits I get an instant urge to start preparing for my Autumn/ Winter wardrobe, when really I should be starting to enjoy the summer weather that has taken so long to arrive (or at least in Glasgow anyway). This year has been no different and I am extremely keen to start pulling together outfits for next season, especially since there are so many trends that I can’t wait to try out.
The trends for Autumn/ Winter vary from designer to designer. We saw masculinity and androgyny at Chanel last fashion week, a take on different eras: the forties and the sixties at Miu Miu and Prada respectively but my favourite trend has to be the comeback of 90s grunge and the use of harder fabrics such as leathers and glossy pvc, rougher edges through the use of studs and spikes, giving fashion a domintarix spin.
The main statements I’m hoping to implement into my look next season is simplistic make-up, using bold colours on my lips such as purple and black, crosses will be the print/shape I will definitely be trying out with maybe some feathers a la Ungaro, sheer tights, grungy knits with plenty of rips and holes, armour jewellery… the list goes on
Take a look below at some of my fashion inspiration for next season, can’t wait to start rolling out the trends….

Batwing jumpers are hugeeee at the moment. Hong Kong is an absolute fashion follower of baggy clothes but the batwing tops look playful and elegant at the same time. Perfect for daytime and night. Whereas William teams up a leather jacket with cropped trousaurs. Both finished work and went shopping, I would have never guessed..

I met Marc in Fo Tan, Hong Kong where there was a mass arts event in different studios in the area. Leather shoes and tailored trousaurs are definately a favourite in the sophisicated look in mens fashion here in HK as well as black trench coats in its colder weather at the moment. What I see alot are guys wearing man-bags here, which I love! More guys should do this in England..
Thought it would be nice to introduce myself first. I am a new blogger in the tellusfashion team and my name is Yuliya. I will be posting London street-fashion straight-ups from today.
So here goes my first try and forgive me if something is not right. I will get there in no time!
