First post ! Spring/summer 2011

2 Jan

I don’t think I’ve been so excited for spring/summer to come ! The trends this year are truly the best and i can’t wait to get my fingers on a few key pieces!

Colours:This year we’ll be seeing a lot of citrus tones.The runway saw a lot of tangerine,yellows and limes.Fuchsia has been huge as well twinned with coral.The biggest of all though has been white.As seen on the Givenchy runway.I love white in summer, it adds a certain freshness,a certain calmness which i can’t really explain! Neon is also making a big comeback.

Decades: 60/70s are the inspiration for this S/S .We see clogs,bell bottoms,tunics,silk blouses with billowing sleeves,kitten heels and jumpsuits making an appearance.If you don’t want to go full out with this trend you can go with a pair of cat eye sunglasses,which are hot!

Miu Miu

Cateye sunglasses

Dresses: As every year the maxi dress returns but with an added twist.Sheer ! Which adds a whole level of sexiness.Shift dresses are a key item as well.

Prints: Floral patterns is the biggest print this S/S.From Erdem to Paul smith.

Biker: One of my favourite trends for S/S is biker chic.Tough leather jacket adorned with studs,leather trousers and skirts.Burberry have the best pieces of biker chic this S/S,following on from their successful Autumn/Winter aviator jackets.

Androgyny: Androgyny means having both female and male characteristics.I love how the designers have portrayed this on the catwalk.The cigarette pant,the clean cut blouses and tailored blazers.

Shoes: My other obsession are shoes ! My favourite designer has to be Christian Louboutin.His shoes are literally works of art.His S/S collection is his best by far.He plays around with studs,polka dots,stripes,checks and there is even a tape measure inspired shoe! Creative or what ?!

The best collections in my opinion : McQueen & Prada.Timeless and effortless.
