Fall/Winter 2012

Fashion trends change with every season and as the weather changes, so do the the trends. The ensembles and colors for fall are more darker and the materials heavier. Here’s are look at the Fall/ Winter 2012 trends.

Print Obsession. Prints are still a fashion week favorite as designers pushed their print love and obsession to the limit with jackets that matched the patterned pants we’ve been seeing for some time. Paisley floral and painterly went head to toe at Miu Miu, Rag and Bone and Rochas.

 Oversize. When it comes to outer wear, oversize and away from the body coats are the way to go as seen during Celine, Chloe and Balenciaga shows.

Fluff Pieces. Designers turned out an updated and modern way to wear fur which is as an accent. Sleeves at Fendi and Jason Wu were fuzzy, pelted skirts at mulberry and the shearling trim on leather dresses at Rodarte.
Fendi Fall 2012
Curve Emphasis. Stella MacCartney, Marc Jacobs and Lanvin kept focus on the waist by adding peplums, panniers and padding to hips for impact.

Gothic Charm. After the display of blinding bright hues and busy prints during Resort 2013 Fashion Week, fashion has turned a gothic corner. Tough black leather turned up on the runway at Proenza Schouler, Givenchy and Versace.

Brocade Opulence. There was a common gold thread running through the season. Dries Van Noten, Marni, Balmain all channelled baroque opulence with rich brocades and embellishments.

The velvet touch. Super luxurious and comfortable, velvet is very wearable for fall. Opt for a reflective look for added curves.
Gucci F/W2012
Embellishment. Shine is a big deal this Fall/Winter with the emphasis on reflecting the light rather than catching it. Try injecting your look with some super-shiny additions like jewellery or an embellished dress.
Dolce and Gabbana F/W2012
Burgundy. It is hard to escape the rich darkness of burgundy. It is a fantastic colour to wear for fall because it is easy to co-ordinate and goes on anything.
Gucci F/W2012
Black and White. Everyone looks good in this classic monotone which is a nice way to break out of the all black ensembles that dominated the Fall/Winter 2012 catwalks.
