The ABC of womenswear ss2012, part 5
There are still some parts to go of the fashion-alphabet for spring 2012. It’s such a wonderful, exciting season that’s awaiting us. Can’t wait to wear a great pleated skirt.
M is for MODERN BAGS
The it-bag of season 2012 will probably be the va va vroemmm clutch of Prada, with the Thunderbird-flames or a cartoon of a car. But the new classics that will last longer we’ll find at Celine, Jil Sander, Chloe and Balenciaga. The modern bag is geometrically shaped, has a short, big strap and is worn under the arm. Look at Balenciaga and Chloe. While Celine sticks to the minimal, in form, function and color. The boxy shapes at Jill Sander are quite new, while Vuittons interpretation of the plastic basket is quite funny and adorable.
N is for NEAT PLEATS
The pleated skirts is fashion’s favorite coming spring. Worn low at the hips with a big belt at Celine and Chloe, but also elegant, feminine and swinging in soft colors at Prada. It has everything a woman needs: it’s flattering, sensual, sunny and wearable.
O is for OVER ALL PRINTS
Prints are the big message for ss2012, especially the digital flowerprints. But designers take us one step further, they love to see us in print from head to toe. And it doesn’t matter if it matches or not. Digitally manipulated flowers, stripes, fantasy-prints and even classic drawings: the more the better.Mary Katrantzou’s work is the best example.
