Best of British / with a sustainable element
Britannia rules not just our Parliament but on the catwalk too. Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi of Preen showcased argyle knits and pretty lurex jumpers in collaboration with British Woollen Mills, using up dead stock heading for landfill so their collection was sustainable too. Tradition, patriotism and sustainability all combine. Here at TradeGala we have a fantastic sustainable collection ready for you to pick the cream of the crop of our stock to match this trend without a tacky union jack print in sight!
Sleeves of significance
Statement sleeves are an easy way for customers of all styles and ages to access the cutting edge look on the catwalks at the Jonathon Anderson A/W show. Bubble shaped sleeves, embellished sleeves, looking at different fibres, or even knitted. TradeGala brand favourites Geniris and Aimelia have some great knitwear to achieve this look.

The cricket sweater
Reminiscent of school PE lessons the humble cricket sweater has made a comeback on the runway at Burberry. Riccardo Tisci also incorporated over sized rugby shirts for a sporty casual look. Figl and Lenitif and Haus of Deck are just a few of the TradeGala brands with wholesale knitwear that can help you stock up on this trend.
Thatcher’s Britain and power dressing with a throwback reference to the 1980’s were inspiration for the collection at Roland Mouret. Model after model strode the catwalk dressed in jackets with padded shoulders, pussy bow blouses, suited and booted in pinstripes & silk shawls - all to reflect what should be worn in a post Brexit boardroom.

Simone Rocha is known for using Catholicism as her inspiration for her garments. The procession of birth, life and then loss are illustrated in her portrayal of christening whites. Think stark white cotton smock dresses, christening robes, fabrics and textures that remind you of purity and summer days as the days darken into winter. This is a fantastic way to merge seasonal trends and TradeGala can help you do just that with these fantastic pieces.

Blue suede shoes
Bottega Veneta and Queen Bee of fashion Victoria Beckham used blue shoes as their inspiration to brighten up a winter colour palette of brown and caramels with a focus on bright blue shoes. Elvis used suede but Glitz Shoes use satin and sparkles to make your boutique collection a little brighter, and use blue shoes to pop with otherwise dull outfits all in browns, creams and toffee shades.
La vie en rose
The A/W much anticipated Erdem show I didn't disappoint the VIPs in their front rows with a beautiful, delicate collection inspired by Cecil Beaton’s Bright Young Things. Romanticism and bold prints with England’s most ubiquitous flower, the rose, proudly stride back into fashion. TradeGala's popular brands Zibi London and Independent Clothing let your clothing boutique do the same.
