Spring/Summer 2012 Trend Report

It’s time for the Trend Report. Here is the best of the trends you’ll be wearing for Spring/Summer 2012. This season Designers seemed to be inspired by what is happening around them, from sports wear (The London Olympics) to 1920’s glamour (the re-make of The Great Gatsby film) and everything in between. Originality and individuality also proved to be on designer’s minds from tribal wear to a 1950’s housewife, it’s time to make up your own mind.

Pyjamas Anyone?

For this season (Spring/Summer 2011) designers have finally given into your need for comfort. Forget the saying ‘beauty is pain’. Throughout the runways from New York to Paris, a certain type of dress sense has been noticed. Silk, smooth, soft, yes thats right Pyjama style is in.


Does this mean you can get straight out of bed and head out of the house? No, but the comfort will still be there in this seasons must have outfit. So whats next underwear?

The Way To Wear Your Bag Next Season

For next season designers have decided to concentrate on the bag. When Miuccia Prada showed her fascinating (as usual) collection in Milan, she had her models pout down the runway holding their bags up to their chest, as if it was a safety guard holding all their possesions. Isn’t that what a woman’s bag is anyway? This trend has spread through the streets and celebrity world already as I saw Alexa Chung carrying out the same thing at the Cannes Film Festival.

Louis Vuitton, Celine and Miu Miu had different visions for how a bag should be held. According to their shows, handles will not be needed next season. Of course a bag has to have a handle for the option, but why do we have to use it?
