Structured & armour; a trend I feel is represented by buckles, tailoring, military inspired pieces and again, lingerie. JPG is a king for structured armour like pieces. And Vivienne Westwood is a queen for her buckles, and bondage pieces. Big chunky belts, leather, chunky strapped shoes and boots and large heavy bags, are some of the key pieces I feel represent this trend perfectly, and are a fantastic way to add detail to other trends in the Urban Armour key look, particularly leather.
Keep a look out for studded details and even spikes on shoes (see Topshop for some amazing spiky shoes!) Look for armour like paneling, structured shoulders and sharplines in tailoring, similar to the eighties trends we saw last season but edgier with a more modern approach.
