AW12 CRASH COURSE

Leather, lace, fur, military boots…ohhh, the Autumn/Winter fun! *snaps out of fashion fantasy* “There’s so many trends, how can I interpret them for myself?” I hear you say. Well, let’s take a look:

DARK ROMANCE
As seen at Givenchy, Gareth Pugh and Balmain.
Put those pastels and florals away. Steal the show with baroque, brocade, velvet, jacquard, lace and leather.

PURPLE REIGN
As seen at Gucci, Prada and Christopher Kane.
There is a sense of sumptuousness this season with purple as the colour du jour. Indulge in purple tones signifying power, femininity and luxury.

POWER
As seen at Donna Karan and Zac Posen.
Tailoring at its best. Sharp-shouldered smart separates. Effortless drapery with just a touch of androgyny.

THE DIGITAL AGE
As seen at Mary Katrantzou, Peter Pilotto and Basso & Brooke.
Graphic prints set against tailoring; accessorised with metallics. Mix and match – don’t be afraid to print clash.

VINTAGE BELLE
As seen at Oscar de La Renta, Tory Burch, Moschino Cheap & Chic, Meadham Kirchhoff and Marios Schwab.
We see references from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 70s. Embellishment is key.

COMMANDER
As seen at Altuzarra, Victoria Beckham, Magaret Howell, and Topshop Unique.
Miltary takes on a feminine alter ego. Think form-fitting midi dresses with military boots or admiral jackets and skinny leather trousers.

Bring on the cold!

Love, Ms.Rae xo
