As we bid our farewells to 2011 and look forward to a fabulous and fashionable year ahead in 2012, i thought it would be a bittersweet moment to recap back on all the trend alerts spotted over the past twelve months.
Twelve months of fashion may not sound too short or too long but we definitely captured some of the best and unforgettable trends out there! And for some reason, i won’t be surprised at all, if history repeats itself with any of the following fashion trends.
Which fashion trend alerts were your favorite in 2011?
Watch out, cat woman is in town! And this brings for another sequel of my “Trend Alert” post, which i’ve missed dearly.
So it looks like we’re all gonna be seeing alot of catty eye actions for the up coming Spring/Summer 2011 fashion trend. If you haven’t already noticed, the fashion world has and still is, rocking the ’50s and ’60’s sunglasses style back to life and it’s some pretty serious business too. The trend has already been spotted on the run way for Prada, Dior, Paul Smith, Giles Deacon, and etc.
It’s surely not a style for everyone but it sure looks fun, if anything!
Tassels were seen on the S/S 2o11 runways for Gucci, Pucci, Paul & Joe, Topshop Unique, and etc. Although tassels have already been seen in the past and mostly on bags, it seems that the trend has gone upon that and can be applied to dresses, belts, clutches, shoes, and even hats!
Honestly, i can’t quite figure out if this is a do or don’t. And if i had to choose, the only thing i’m kinda liking are the tassel belts and can be worn on a “normal” day, lol. What’s your take? Are you bedazzled or baffled by the tassels trend?
I’ve never thought about who my favorite designer is but if I have to name one, I think it will have to be Alexander Mcqueen. He was a true genius and created history in fashion, where he stood out in public with his unconventional designs and showed no boundaries within creativity. It’s quite unbelievable to think that this legendary artist in the fashion world has already departed from us for nearly 7 months.
However, i felt that his presence was relived the very moment i saw the Alexander Mcqueen SS11 collection. The inspiration for this collection derives from nature where elements such as butterflies, wheat, and feathers are used. I love this collection and how it looks so earthy and colorful at the same time. The shoes in this collection is totally to die for too! I absolutely adore the heels with the butterfly and those golden arched wedges are sure to make a golden statement.
I know that Fashion Week has already come to an end and that i should leave it at that. I tried hard to stop myself from posting runway photos as the entire fashion blogosphere has already done so but as expected, i just couldn’t resist and gave in to my fashion cravings, hehe. I decided to make it short and sweet and only share two of my favorite runways, Jil Sander SS11 for Milan Fashion Week and Lavin SS11 for Paris Fashion Week. Btw, i snatched the lovely photos of the Jil Sander runway from the gorgeous fashionista blogger Andy, who is based in Amsterdam.

I am head over heels for this collection. It’s all about bright colors, structure, and detailed prints!!!! I like how the make up isn’t too dramatic on the models, with just white pale faces against the shocking pink lips. This way, there is less going on with the face and more focus towards the vibrant dresses!!!
Normally i don’t really notice Lanvin and don’t ask why, it’s just one of those things, lol. But i was really drawn to their SS11 collection this time. I loved the drapery effect where it creates a look that is that much more feminine and sexy. The colors were more earthy tones and you can never go wrong with neutral colors, right? Afterall, it is one of fall’s best trend. And i abosolutely adore that beetle look alike accesory on the model. I’m not sure if it’s a brooch or necklace but never minds, it’s just pure gorgeous and pretty functional as an accesory piece.
So what did you think of Fashion Week? Which one/ones were your utter most favorite on the list?????
