The same trends that pop for Spring 2011 filter to knits as well. We saw sheer knits, zigzags and stripes and boxy minimalist sweaters. Trendy colours saturated fibres.
Let's take a look at the Crown Royal of Knitwear, Missoni. I would have thought they would have gone the way of 70's stripes, like Marc Jacobs, but tribal and zigzag it was with boxy lines.
Salvatore Ferragamo keeps crochet alive in his 70's inspired show. This dress is too cute!
... and more boxy. See how knits are the pop of colour, minimalist and the sheer trend?
Interesting poncho (oh, not ponchos again!).
Speaking of colour, Pantone give us these to play with, but don't forget black and especially, white - it's so huge for Spring.
More from the various Fashion Weeks. More on Accessories Monday, including knits!
Ladylike - 50's
The whirlwind of September in the Fashion world is not just about the thick September issues of mags, the yummy new looks in the stores or back to school. Designers are already unleashing Spring 2011 to editors, retailers, bloggers, designers in the gruelling fashion weeks of New York, London, Milan and Paris. It all begins in New York and follows in the order aforementioned, ending the big splash in Paris.
Michael Kors is soon becoming a favourite of mine. His Fall 2010 collection is the best in my humble opinion, followed by an equally bang-on-hitting Spring 2011.
Here's a peek at the big trends (sometimes mixing with other trends I have in parentheses). I'll do four today and more tomorrow:
Nobody does it better...
Now and then, everyone needs a little bump of inspiration. Here's a peek at the eye candy that's got me going...
Isn't the hairdresser's where you feel a little more connected to fashion than usual? I mean, after all, when do you get as much time to peruse the latest magazines? I got a dose of it yesterday while Jay worked his magic. What I gleaned from this guilty pleasure is how much I am going to love this fall's trends. Always an admirer of past fashions ie 20's, 40's and 50's, the fall brings with it images of retro. Yes, I know the 80's is making a come-back and once was enough for me, but check out Lanvin and all the beautiful looks within this house of fashion Fall 09 RTW:
Yes, my days of thigh-high boots are well past me (sadly), but what struck me, especially in the 2nd photo, was the edginess of the square rims with the whole look. A little 80's snuck in, after all. Love the leather mid length gloves - that I can do!
Then there's my fav Ralph Lauren, velvet jodphurs - who else could make them look fantastic with satin wrapped blouses? I love the romanticism of these two:
And doesn't this one scent of the upcoming Amelia movie? RL never disappoints.
Joanne loves to...
