London Fall Fashion Week sees a focus on jeweled tones particularly in shades of green and gold tones. Constructed skirts and jackets are a highlight with more comfortable open silhouettes. Top must haves include Burberry’s bird motif sweaters, Mulberry’s jeweled toned snake skin bag, and Williamson’s cut out dresses. Favourite is the simple chic and elegant outfits presented by Aquascutum.
This young Hungarian model is much touted for her baby face look, discovered in 2006 at the age of 13. She has recently scored the lucrative position as ambassador for L’oreal Paris and has been shot by the top names in the industry as well as walking for Prada, Chanel, Christopher Kane and Vivienne Westwood. With her luscious lips and bright blue eyes, I would love to have her in a beauty story!
The second half of 2012 shows New York fall collections taking a trend for sharp clean tailoring, with a focus on pristine shapes and muted colours with a nod to British aristocratic masculinity. 1960s flapper silhouette still has a lingering hold with a brief flirt with fishtail skirts giving more of a womanly twist. Highlights include Derek Lam’s cable knits and leather pieces, Marc Jacob’s brilliant purple jacket and Proenza Schouler’s japanese inspired mini skirts. My favourite however is Donna Karan who’ve certainly made a strong comeback from recent years- her minimal but strong design with assents of origami should make a leading forecast for what’s to come in 2013.
