The designers have released their Fall 2012 Ready-To-Wear (RTW) collections and specific trends are emerging. In fact, there are a lot of emerging trends to the point that this article must be broken down into three parts. These will be the type of fashion styles that will be infecting the streets (depending if people will catch up on it). So let’s see the highlights so far.
BLACK AND WHITE COLOR BLOCKING
Yes ladies. This is color blocking into a whole new level. Gone are the acid brights (thank goodness!). It is time to go back to our minimalistic and noir selves. However, color blocking has been so effective in contouring the female body, the method has not died yet. In fact, it has evolved with our preferences. Black and white is in and this is how you are going to use it!
(FAUX) FUR PLEASE
Unfortunately for PETA fans, FUR ruled the runway. Hopefully, they are all faux. Nevertheless, (our fake) animal skins have donned the runway from being a full fledge outerwear down to just an accessory. They also come in different textures and colors so the choices for your staple wardrobe are endless.
ORDURES (GARBAGE) STYLE
We are not talking about the recyclists finally winning the battle with the fashion industry. Although it would be a very happy thought that finally, we can freely wear recycled paper and plastic bottles with pride, this trend has nothing to do with that at all.
Ordures (meaning garbage) style is basically wearing deconstructed pieces of fashion on the runway. As if it has become post apocalyptic and this is what it’s going to be like at that time.
To downplay it a bit, it’s like you have picked up pieces that do not go well together at all, put them on and that is the point. The reason that it is called garbage fashion is because it makes you look like you just came out of a garbage and plastic wrappers or other stuff just decided to stick on you.
Just to be clear, this is a new emerging trend that not all fashion lovers may want for themselves. It looks fun though.
Slacks, blazers and pencil skirts also ruled the runway. Finally, some chic corporate attires that you can gladly wear with pride on the streets! Black, gray and white are also prevalent. So feel fierce in your chic corporate glory!
