I don’t know if you have been following the shows and trends lately, but there seems to be some kind of clash going on between the 90s and the 70s. Some of you favorite styles-and many that you hated- from the 90s are coming back full force, but coming in neck in neck with them is the 70s. Culottes in various lengths of short are back, suedes and animal prints, platforms, and even bell bottoms are coming back. Are you ready for the 70s trend? Is it something you are going to attempt come this fall? I might. We shall see how it goes. Photos from the Georgine PR reps and Style.com.

Resort 2012

The Resort 2012 collections have been coming out everyday for the past two months or so. I hate Resort and Pre-fall collections because they always come out at sporadic times. I wish they could all come out in like one week or so, or have the designers release their collection photos at scheduled times. The collections that you are about to see are just a few of the ones that I like. All photos are from Style.com. Thoughts?

Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2011 Has Amazing Dresses

Michael Kors’ Pre-Fall 2011 dresses are amazing. The collection was fantastic. I loved the colors, the cuts, everything, but these last three dresses really stood out. Pre-Fall is sold in the summer, so these dresses are perfect for that season. They have this Grecian look to them that looks very fashion forward to me even though they have been done over and over again.  How do you feel about these dresses? I couldn’t pick a favorite. Photos from Fashionologie.

UPDATE: I wrote this post yesterday, and scheduled it for later. Today I have seen some amazing Pre-Fall collection over the internet, so I am going to make a best of post between now and the weekend.

European Fashion Trends – Fall/ Winter Collections 2010/2011 Part 1

Soon, fall will replace summer. Many fashionistas are curious about which trends the new fall/winter collections will reveal. For all those who cannot wait any longer, I started to research a little bit about this season’s fashion trends in Europe, and this is what I discovered.

According to the motto “opposites attract”, this fall is a multifaceted mix of draperies, patterns and styles. Traditional costumes get suitable for everyday use, minimalism gets reduced to the maximum and sweet school girl outfits coexist with vintage suits à la Wall Street. The 80’s masculinity meets the charming fifties, and rock star outfits are commingled with baronial glam to a baroque mix.

1st trend: Minimalistic chic

Derivation

With its seeds in art and architecture, this trend traces back to the German Bauhaus era of 1919. The principle “Reduce to the max” adverts to reclaim clean lines and simplicity over an excess of ornaments. Later, it made its way as a mindset in fashion in the 30s with Marlene Dietrich as an outrider. Today, minimalism is an inherent part of the fashion scene.

Look

This mindset alludes to the basics. Imaginative shapes displace colourful prints. Brands like Chloé or Michael Kors tend to use fawn or shades of brown which can be variegated.

2nd trend: wool & shag / Norwegian style

Derivation:

Believe me or not, but this trend emerged due to the English royal dynasty. In 1922, the Prince of Wales wore a pullover with a Norwegian style on a golf tournament and made it socially accepted. In ancient times, the colourful patterns had a certain symbolic meaning: Mainly, they were worn by fishermen or peasants and were a distinctive mark of families or counties.

Look:

This season, wool cardigans and pullovers are extremely casual, but debonair. Whether  you like trumpet sleeves or Norwegian pullovers, this year fall gets inspired by Nordic patterns.

Really in: Woollen costumes with elegant pencils skirts (combined with lace at the runway shows of Dolce & Gabbana). Another winterly eye-catcher: Flashy colourful stripes.
