Trend Alert – Neon Neon Neon!!!

Prada Spring 2011 Ready to Wear Collection

 The neon trend seems to be back in the game and this time, bolder and louder, or maybe it always has been, as seen from the Prada Spring 2011 Ready to Wear collection. As for this year, there was a playful mixture of neon hues and patterns present on the runways. Jonathan Saunders was definitely amongst one of my fave runways for the neon trend, and i loved how he played around with color, pattern, and fabric.

As i was searching for some neon runway photos, i came across a few designer brands that i’ve not heard of and i have to say, they did an amazing job with the bright neon look, especially Nanette Lepore. There was a strong presence of neon yellow and neon orange in her collection and the color contrast is a very refreshing and up to beat approach, just perfect for the upcoming Spring. The neon orange and lilac lips were also a great finishing touch on the models.

For me, this look definitely takes me back to the 80’s where it screams neon all over the place but it’s fairly easy to create a more toned down look, just by matching neon with neutral toned fabrics. In fact, you can take baby steps to experiment this trend by using neon accessories, such as a bag or a pair of heels.
 
I actually just went to H&M over the weekend and snatched a gorgeous looking neon orangy top so i’ll be trying out the neon look in no time! I saw a lot of the whole neon look going on so be quick, check out your local H&M shops immediately.

    I really like the Ellie Saab neon collection….its so elegant and pretty with the lace and long garments!
    Your Chinese New Year sounds lovely too! It must feel so much more festive in Shenzhen…plus you get holidays! I haven’t spent Chinese New years in Asia for quite a long time…think I miss the festive cookies and food most! We do have a celebration where they have the lion dance, caligraphy and stalls selling festive things in central London, but its so very hectic and packed with people that we tend to avoid it. We usually celebrate at home with family and I usually organise a night out to celebrate with friends too! :) It also gives me an excuse to wear my Qi Pao.
