    FALL 2012 Top Trends:

    What: Unexpected jolts of pink – Bursts of Crimson, Berry and Raisin

    Where: Acne, Celine, Lanvin

    >>DISCOVER: Top Fall 2012 Trends Part 1

    Bursts of crimson shades of berry, bordeaux and raisin imbued the season’s moody hues with rich color. Like that perfect red wine, this color is destined to flourish with age. From head to toe at Acne, to punctuating at Celine, autumnal berry tones add a vibrant supercharge that’s easily manageable.

    Ladylike Military Nuances at Burberry Prorsum

    What: Military Details & Strength

    Where: McQ, Burberry, Atuzarra

    Military notes, an omnipresent fall theme, highlighted the season’s mannish tailoring fabrics with new proportions. Peplums played against strong tailoring were austere yet sexy and compliment falls softness with strength. And a little androgyny to the otherwise femme codes of the season.

    Head-to-Toe Leather from Valentino

    What: Luxe Leather, even Head-To-Toe

    Where: Celine, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent

    Leather continues to gain momentum with labels like Valentino doing full (and exquisite) looks in slick hides. But this time around it wasn’t all about black as bordeaux worked as a mini trend. Referencing the masculine to 50′s princess a-line shapes to urban nomads, the case for leather goes beyond simple biker chic and looks remarkably cool.

    80′s Era Strength and Elegance at YSL

    What: Eighties Futurism via Sharp Suiting

    Where: Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent

    A stronger silhouette graced the autumn catwalks where powerful sharp shoulders were a recurring theme. Verging on severe 80′s shapes that evoke lensman Helmut Newton, traditional fabrics were juxtaposed with unexpected hues and finishes. Including bold flourishes of metallics and leathers in every connotation. Express your wild side while retaining comfort as triangle shoulders and bombers boast roomy interiors.
