The Very Best Of 2011 – Part 2

With New Year’s eve ’round the corner we take some time to look back on another great fashion year. ‘Cause boy, what a year it was! The year of Galliano, Kate Middleton and Emmanuelle Alt. A year in which colorblocking, seventies and polka dots became the biggest trends. A year full of new collections and collaborations (Versace for H&M, Lanvin & Marni kids). Yet also a year filled with goodbyes (Carine Roitfeld, D&G, Amy Winehouse). Join us in our retrospect of 2011…

Here are highlights 6 to 10 of this year:

6. More & more fashion documentaries
Sonia Rykiel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino, Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Dior, Viktor & Rolf, Fendi and Yves Saint Laurent. Turns out every major fashion label is now producing it’s own documentary. And since we can’t get enough of those movies we’re also super excited about the Bill Cunningham and upcoming Diana Vreeland docs.

7. Kate Moss marries in Galliano
After all the bad press Galliano got in the beginning of 2011 Kate Moss supported him (big time) by wearing one of his creations on her big day. In a gorgeous Galliano gown she got married to her love Jamie Hince.

8. Saskia & Daphne
We couldn’t be more proud of Dutchies Daphne Groeneveld and Saskia de Brauw. They were the newcomers of 2010 and the stars of 2011! Both girls were featured in multiple ad grand campaigns and editorials and reached a supermodel status.

9. R.I.P. Amy Winehouse
She may not have had her own fashion line (besides her work for Fred Perry), but she truly inspired the fashion world with her outspoken looks (big hair & thick eyeliner). Not only did we loose a great singer when Amy died, we also lost a extraordinary style icon.

10. Seventies Chic
2011 was all about the seventies revival; flared pants, floppy hats, large sunglasses, hippie chic headbands and platform heels. We sure loved every bit of it!
