Fall 2012 Trend Report (Part II)

Besides the new trends seen on the catwalks, some trends are reminiscent of last fall’s season showing us that “they are here to stay".


Burgundy was one of the main colours from last f/w season. From expensive brands to high street shops, the racks were filled with burgundy trousers, blazers, coats, knits etc. This season this trend continues by designers like Peter Som and Jason Wu.

We’ve all loved the metallics’ trend last winter and you should be glad to know that this trend will still be seen in the months to come. This season however, the main focus goes back to the basics -gold-.
