Spring/Summer ’12 Trend Report

PALE and  INTERESTING VS TECHNOCOLOUR

Ice blue, spearmint green, bitter lemon and damask pink  – the s/s collections were awash with the palest and preetiest colours in stand-alone shades or colour-blocked so you don’t have to pick just one OR go for bold, shocking and outrageously bright blues, yellows, pinks, greens and yellows.

JAZZ AGE

Lavish beading, tasselled trims and feathers adorned art deco print flapper dresses and drop waists (big this season)

1950’s

The return of the crop top (if you’ve got cheerleader abs).  Glossy leather skirts and prim feminine dresses show off feminine curves or play down the look with some cats-eyes sunglasses and preppy checks.

LUXE SPORTSWEAR

Technical fabrics blend with feminine lines and body con cut-outs to create a very luxe take on sportswear.

SPRING FLORALS

Christopher Kane placed flowery stickers beneath sheer organza which heralded an expolsion of mixed blooms for this s/s. Printed, applique’ and beaded florals are back and if it’s a little too much flower power for you wear with crisp white shorts or jeans or opt for monochrome florals in black and white for a cooler take on florals.

DAY DECOR’

Sheer chiffon, silks & broderie anglaise ushered in an ultra-girly look but strictly for daylight hours

WHITE HEAT

White is huge this s/s and falls into two distinctive looks.  Graphic minimalism – precision-cut tailoring gives a sleek but tough edge to create one of the coolest looks this season.  Feminine Whites – Lace, broderie anglaise and silks create a soft preety and very feminine look.

THE FUTURE LOOKS SHINY

Frosted, glazed and glassy finishes, rubber metals and glistening silk organzas replace razzle-dazzle sparkle for evening.  Hi-tech fabrics are the future so prepare to shine and glow, if in doubt just wear with jeans.

PAJAMA PARTY

Swap your slppers for heels and adopt a different evening look, the laid back one.  Elegant PJ pants and jackets that have a slight take on a dressing gown in silks and satins are this seasons other big evening-wear trend.
