2012 Fashion Trends

Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #2: Color. For colder seasons designers normally prefer using neutral or reserved colors like black, brown, navy, cream, dark violet, etc. However, Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 collections abound in brighter hues like crimson, neon orange, purple, sky blue and others. Besides, these eye-popping tones can come in daring combinations. See Haider Ackermann, Alberta Ferretti, Victoria Beckham, Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry Prorsum, and other designers and brands for inspiration. (Read COLOR TRENDS FOR FALL/ WINTER 2011/ 2012)

Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #3: Fetish. This trendhas come very unexpected. The most surprising thing is that so many designers have taken it so seriously. Marc Jacobs has built both Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs collections on fetish and domitatrix themes. Gaga’s favorite designer Mugler, Giles, Antonio Berardi, Marios Schwab as well as Viktor & Rolf and Givenchy have all featured this Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 trend in their ranges.
Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #4: Texture Overload.Everything is mixed in Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 collections. Silk comes along with fur and knitwear, sequins and leather make a perfect combination and even plastic goes well with chiffon and wool. Sounds crazy? It does. And it does look a bit crazy, too.
Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #5: 40s Elegance.Fashion repeats itself. In Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 40s elegance is again a hot trend. The best approach to reinvent this fashion era has been realized by Gucci, John Galliano, Miu Miu, and Jonathan Saunders.

Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #6: Midi and Maxi skirts. Miniskirts are always popular, especially with teenagers. But for Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 you better embrace the longer length skirts. These can look as sexy as minis because your sex appeal depends on how you wear your clothes, not the type of clothing you wear. Find midis and maxis in Dries Van Noten, Chloe, Balenciaga, Roland Mouret, Antonio Marras, St.John and other designer collections.

Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #7: Prints. The variety of prints in Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 collections is huge: from tiny polka dots in Gucci and broken glass in Stella McCartney to girly paisley in Anna Sui and bold flowers in Versace. There are also baroque prints in Jonathan Saunders, photographic flowers at Giambattist Valli, Miu Miu’s glittering spring flowers, enlarged feathers at Ungaro, panthers in Givenchy’s, and plenty of other prints in other designer collections. You just need to understand what print you want because you can have everything.

Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #8: Pleats and Frills.While gender play trend is going forward at a steady gait some designers think femininity should be preserved. It’s the greatest news for those girls who don’t want to transform into strong and courageous men and prefer to remain fragile women. Pleats, frills, cute rosettes and lovely embroidery help us look romantic. And we sometimes want to look romantic, don’t we? Prettiest pleats can be found in Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 collections.

Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #9: Zoological. Besides zoological prints, like leopard and python, to which we have already got accustomed due to the fact every single season designers use these in their creations, in Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 ranges we see lots of feathers, wild animals printed on fabric (Givenchy, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Topshop and Ungaro), hats in shape of lions and panthers at Anna Sui, etc. Fashion goes really wild.

Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Fashion Trend #10 Chunky Knit Sweater. .Fall and winter are cold seasons, so there is no wonder why designers have included warm chunky sweaters into their collections. Missoni is the main producer of knitted sweaters. You can see a great variety of knitted items in their Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 line.
