Trendspotting!! Fall/Winter 09
My great pal - ShopGirl - who runs the fashion blog "Breeze in Paris" has recently posted a few great new trends for Fall/Winter 2009.
Overall, looks like the fashion world is going BOLD and EXTREME this coming season in contrast to the gloomy economic environment.
With her consent, I have summarized into the excerpt below and if you want to read more, visit her blog at http://breezeinparis.blogspot.com/
"New fall collection is all over town in Paris. All have one thing in common: Asymmetrical cuts & layers...Layers, flowy cuts...Remember proportion is the key...We have 2 other extreme trends that will hit the fashion streets this year: Bohemian, and Rocker Chick: Leather."
"Classic winter black, grey, white, and fire-engine red, with plaid being a very popular fabric pattern this time around...This winter, on top of the classic winter colors I have mentioned before, we're going to discover a relatively more colorful winter fashion than ever! One of the reasons is to hopefully spark some hopeful positive spirit in us in this slowly recovering recession."
"The use of metals, steel pieces is a necessity in the jewelery trend...This year's accessory trend is "extremely" bold in styles, structure, and colors...The use of materials is vast and creative, often with complicated designs and combination of big and small pieces...Turning a piece of accessory into the star of the show, the spotlight of the entire ensemble."
