The best way to wear a print item coming autumn is to mix it with another print. Even if you suppose two prints will clash, wear them together. The crazier and brighter the prints, the better.

Whether if it’s letters (D&G), flowers (Betsey Johnson), geometric prints (Hermes) or something abstract (Alberta Ferretti).

Forget color coordinating and just go crazy on the new season’s prints and patterns.

For fall/winter 2011/2012 we’ve moved on from the bright color blocking looks to jewel tones. Still very strong and colorful, but with a little bit more warmth and sophistication in it.

Amethyst, sapphire, emerald, ruby, garnet and citrine are some of the jewel-inspired shades you’ll see this fall. Especially the amethyst colors rocked the international catwalks at Gucci, D&G, Alberta Ferretti and Versace.

Combine this shade with other rich colors and you’ll look & feel bejeweled!

Afraid you might end up looking like a purple Teletubby? Just go for a purple accessory like a clutch bag or a small belt.


Trend Report FW2011: Oh my Tartan!

If the winter of 2011/2012 is going to be a cold one, these tartan pieces (made from thick wool) sure will keep you warm. Besides the tartan print can be combined with other fashion pieces very easily.

For instance: mix a large tartan scarf with denim pants (Dsquared2), combine a pair woolen tartan trousers with a leather jacket (Etro) or opt for a hounds’ tooth skirt and a sheer blouse (Salvatore Ferragamo). Black & white (Yves Saint Laurent, black & yellow (Burberry) or black & red (Moschino Cheap & Chic). The tartan can be very versatile.

If you don’t wanna go all the way, just choose a great tartan scarf. No matter how you wear it; you’ll definitely have fun with it.


Trend Report FW2011: Sixties Style

After the super feminine fifties and the playful seventies, fashion has now landed back in the sixties. This means: two piece ensembles, miniskirts, high boots, simplicity, color and eye for details (like large pockets and buttons).

Going on a sixties shopping spree? Take some inspiration from models like Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy. Copy their looks and give it your own MODern twist (forget the short hair and wear heels instead of flats).

Opt for thick fabrics that hold structure to create the ultimate sixties look. And don’t go to far with the mini-skirt tough; too short still is not very classy.

Check out the gallery below to see how designers like Burberry, Prada, Calvin Klein and Bottega Veneta interpreted the sixties in their fall collections.

Trend Report SS2011: It’s a jungle out here!

If you wanna buy fashion pieces that never go out of style you should – besides the LBD and the trenchcoat – invest in some animal prints. Season after season they’re a big trend on the runway, as well as on the streets.

In case you’re getting with the good old leopard print, there are plenty more animal-inspired prints on the market. Perhaps a Zebra dress (as seen at Louis Vuitton) or a snake skin jacket (like we saw at Burberry)?

And if the natural colors of all those animal prints are not daring enough for you, opt for some color. Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Blumarine all showed that. And though we’ve never seen a blue zebra, we still think it’s kinda cool.

It’s also nice to know animal prints can be mixed and worn together this season. So wear your favorite zebra skirt with your snake skin jacket and your full on trend!

Here are some pictures. Get inspired!

Since spring is in the air we’re starting a new round of trend reports. From now on you’ll find new trend reports on our blog every week. And we can’t wait to show you all the hottest new designs. We kick of with one of the big summer trends, floral prints….

Whether bright & bold (D&G, Etro) or subtle and pastel colored (Blugirl, Alberta Ferretti) you’ll never feel dull wearing some floral prints. The flower power print makes up for a romantic and feminine look and comes in tons of variations from roses, to poppies and from sunflowers to violets.

Dolce & Gabbana already proved there’s no limit to how you can use the floral print. The designers showed bright florals on playsuits, head scarves, summer tops and maxi dresses. They even decorated the whole show area with real flowers!

Of course the flower power trend is a big hit every spring, yet we’re starting to see more and more variations of the print, which, if you dare, can be worn together all at once!
