Spring's Trends

Asymmetric- The Airy shapes in poufy gazar, duchesse satin, georgette, one shoulder dresses were perfectly presented by the man who made voluptuous exist in the age of austerity. With a recipe for reductionism and all out gorgeousness with a strike of lethal feminism, Alber Elbaz showed that he can do just about anything with his creations for Lanvin.
Black- A Classic but checkout them shoulder pads by Maison Martin Margiela. 
Graeco Roman Togas - Dsquared's version of the modern "Venus". 

Heavy Metals - Donatella for Versace always has the ability to make me go gaga.

Harem Pants - this new-silhouette trend isn't really one of the highlights of my season, but the critics seem to be going crazy about it. Seen Above, in Chloe.
 New Nudes - Embrace fashion's soft side with this season's new nudes in Cafe au lait. Here seen in Giambatista Valli, also sporting florals which is another big hit this season.
 Futuristic - whoever said Fashion and Science had nothing in common clearly doesn't know what the f*ck they're talking about. With Pac man as his inspiration, Giles Deacon presents his collection with these amusing headpieces. It's nice to know Balenciaga isn't the only one who was inspired by NASA's pioneering efforts in Space.
Super Shoulders-  This season's shoulders go oversized with peaked and round faces. Reminds me of my mum's Escada suits from the nineties, i've never been a big fan of them until Margiela emerged on my radar but this Flinstone - inspired collection by Christopher Kane, is very fresh, completely changed my insight on them. Definitely one of my favorites this season.
Tribal - This season dance to the beat of the drum with Galliano's new reformed look with modern silhouettes for the tribal using python giving it a luxe edge. I have to say, i'm really digging this whole "Audrey Hepburn circa Breakfast at Tiffany's look sporting the african inspired pieces at Dior by John Galliano.
Trophy Jackets - Forget bags, this season it's all about the Jackets. Whether their embellished, beaded, military or brocade, definitely one of this season's must haves.  Especially if your lucky enough to get your hands on this Balmain one. Ahh, Balmain...i have truly died and come to heaven (fashion heaven that is), all the vintage madonna bling and rock-chic fabulousness give me this rush in my blood.
