(ad) The autumn-winter collections are hitting the stores giving us a lot to look forward to. As the weather gets colder, there is no point to look back to summer when you can expect a whole lot of dazzling fashion about to up your wardrobe game. I talked to one of the main buyers from Zizzi and got some key first-hand intel to give you an exclusive sneak peek at the collection and the trends we will all want to wear soon enough. Check this out and see pictures of the coolest styles about to hit the stores.
Zizzi’s autumn collection has been carefully developed, translating into plus size fashion the main fashion trends spotted on the fashion week’s runways. With the notorious evolution in their branding – taking place over the last couple of years – Zizzi raises the bar and brings trendy and stylish garments into the curvy wardrobe.
“We changed the way we think the collections and the way we buy clothes. Before we would have the assortment chosen and bought around 9 months in advance. This plan leads to lack of up to date trends in our collections. It’s just too hard to predict with 100% certainty what people will be wearing with that much advance. We spotted the changing opportunity and the new strategy is to buy the clothes 9 or 10 weeks in advance for most of our lines. So now we are much more accurate and up to date with the trends.” Explain Mia Skjødt, Zizzi Retail Buyer.
This collection has already started coming to the shops, so no more waiting. Expect more colours, dazzling embellishment, traditional craftwork and a seventies palette with beautiful hues of yellow, purple, blue, browns, bright and deep reds, with a dash of trendy lavender. And the flower prints, it is likely that you fall in love with them just like we did.
“It is not only about one flower print but how we developed the print throughout the collection. From small flowers to big graphics made out from the stem. It’s a whole oriental feeling in our flower prints that are the major mood in this collection.” Says Mia Skjødt, Zizzi Retail Buyer.There is a lot of focus on the textiles and on the details. Fancy embellishments, Devore velvet, transparency, lace up, blocking and slits on the jeans. Statement t-shirts paired with lace. Tomboyish moods contrasting with feminine fits and the oriental flowery bold prints. It’s all about contrasts in the new femininity universe brought by Zizzi this season.

Take inspiration from my picks of the most fabulous autumn/winter curvy styles.
So chic and trendy. The metallics are a highlight in the collection. look at these pieces coming in October and November. Available in selected stores and online.
Inspired by the men wardrobe, but designed by Zizzi – so you know it was made for our curves! 🙂 The grey coat on the upper left is already in stores and the other styles coming in october and november. Avilable in selected stores and always, online.
Try this: style your rock tshirt with a mesh or lace top underneath. It is such a cute late nineties trend that we can’t let go just yet.
Speaking of lace and mesh. I leave you to these beauties. They are seriously one of the most pretty pieces I’ve seen this season. Coming in stores soon, up to october/november.
This season is about the focus on the fabrics. The detailed work is about to up our closet game. You can thank me later.
Here you see how the flower print is developed throughout the collection. From small flowers to graphics made out of the stem. Plus, have you seen the kimonos giving us all these oriental vibes?
Decandent in s very good way because the warm tones are the most trendy this season.
The best jeans fit of the market now comes with trendy details. I would like to have one for each day of the week. #dreamon
The collection looks just amazing. I hope you guys will be as inspired as I got when I made the interview and wrote this post. Zizzi is a brand that has been going through a lot of good changes and I am very proud of collaborating with them for this post.
