Sorbet colors will be in full bloom this season; the spring-summer collection will bring us orange, yellow, fuchsia, lavender and green …designers and labels have introduced a plethora of garments in these uplifting hues. but …don’t we still need to get the nudes, blushes, and whites out of our systems.
Yes, flesh tones were last season’s trend however they needed to evolve and transform. They have been embellished with fringes, tassels, feathers, frills, and bows. Lace –eyelet especially- and pieces constructed out of luxurious silks and sheer will make their way into our wardrobes.
Run your eyes over Chanel, Valentino and Chloe’s 2011 catwalk trends -among many other designers- a neutral palette still dominates … minimalist or fussy, haute couture or mass production, key pieces remain chic blouses in powdery beiges, sharp tailored jackets, tulle and tutu-like skirts, vintage petticoats, and maxi tunics. As far as footwear –booties and wedges will be with us for sometime yet, to contrast and at times, to shock.Sassy garments that flow, extrude femininity and sophistication, we love/want them all.
