Fall Is Just Arriving While Fashion Is “Spring”-ing Forward:The Trend Report
September finishes up one of the busiest weeks for fashion as the designers preview their Spring 2012 collections in Paris, Milan, New York, and London. While the rest of us are just now putting away our linen and labor day whites, and dragging out our favorite boots and sweaters, it seems crazy to even be talking about spring- but fashionistas know the drill. And I will let you know who was front and center and the major shows picking their fav runway looks for Spring.Young blood- front and center- really young!
HCC: Hyper Chic Color
Color on Crack is no exaggeration to describe designers’ take on color for Spring 2012. Oscar De La Renta, Thakoon, Marc Jacob, Haider Ackermann, even Donna Karen can’t help but embrace electrifying blues and citrus yellows and limes. So, those of you stuck in black and white- time to break out the shades and let your inner Elton John rule your house of color!
Put on your Big Girl Pants
It is time for women of the world to take after style icon Coco Chanel and wear the pants and the high heels. Almost every designer showed high waisted cigarette pants with peplum tops or blazers in vibrant textured hues. Tailored but still very feminine.
In the Flesh
That’s right ladies, as vibrant as the colors are, we also can expect soft flesh and nude tones as well. chiffon blouses, long gowns, billowing silks all in varying sexy nudes. I predict the summer to be stifling!
