Top 55 Luxury Fashion Trends in 2018

From Hi-Vis Neon Jackets to Elegant Robotic Fashion Runways

— January 12, 2019 — Luxury
The 2018 luxury fashion trends definitely present a tight mix of stylish ensembles with elegant aesthetics and artful embellishments. While some projects boast incredibly experimental collections, others focus more on an ultra-luxurious experience.

Designers have definitely caused a stir on the fashion runway this year. Each show becomes more of a performance piece as it rolls out — from Dior's futuristic Pre-Fall 2019 debut that was accompanied by a fembot sculpture by Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama to Kota Okuda's exaggerated and provocative approach to the industry which boasts sculptural outfits that are inspired by American currency.

Off-the-runway, the 2018 luxury fashion trends spotlight luxe offerings like Gucci x Dover Street Market's print-heavy and baroque-inspired collection.

For more luxury fashion trends in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter's 2019 Trend Report.
