White : While some designers went mad for color (see below) others such as Dolce and Gabbana and Alexander Wang went mad for a lack of. In fact Wang seemed proud of having designed a collection using no black. (black being the fashionistas color of choice)While each of the above designers have used very different styles to get the right look : lace, geometric shapes, 70's trousers and erm, sci fi. But then Pugh is always different to the rest!
White is not a color I wear. I drop food and my house is bombsite so I need something I don't have to keep washing every second. I enjoy white.....on other people. Just not me!
Acid - Not the kind you take in a nightclub to look 'cool'. But the kind you can wear! Hurrah! Apart from blue, the other massive trend was orange, yellow and green. With a lot of shows making suits (maxmara) and shift dresses (burberry) out of acid colors. Burberry also touched on an easier way to wear this trend for those of us who are a little shy, add a tangerine or bright green skinny belt (the skinny belt is massively on trend) around your dress, jacket or shorts for this season coming. Instant update!
THE 70'S - It's back to the days of floppy hats, high waisted baggy trousers, studio 54 and jumpsuits. Yes, the 70's are the decade du jour. The season's inspiration. If it was 50's last season with Mad Men taking over Prada, then it's rebelling a little with 70's inspired styling and shapes. Look at Topshop Unique for example. Their show seemed entirely 70's influenced. Team with massive platforms!
Blue - The color of the season. Shown at all the major shows. In any shade or shape,From bags of love at Mulberry (the bags of love being blue butter soft suede) to the Beachy wrap dresses from Halston. The first collection since being under the control of Sarah Jessica Parker.
So whatever your coloring, there is a blue shade to suit everyone! If your feeling very bold and beautiful, why not try the ice blue lipstick from Lime Crime on sale in Harvey Nichols? After all, tis the season to be silly! Spring!
