2012!! It’s flown by and I am struggling to remember key factors! Already we’ve seen the pre AW13 collections, we are currently working on the AW13 shows and looking forward to SS14! Fashion; it moves fast, so you better keep up! Once I took a minute to think, how could I really forget? Here is a round up of my best bits of 2012:
From space age materials at Balenciaga to the retro 90’s sweatshirt comeback at Kenzo; microtrends ruled and fashion was suddenly fun again!! The Gucci fedoras and Louis V hand-cuff’s of AW were packed away and we were ready to go head to toe in print by the new Queen of LFW Mary Katrantzou followed by dinner in our oh so chic pyjama suit! Needless to say it was another Fabulously Fashionable year and one that will go down in history for the ‘New Era’ beginnings at the newly named Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and most recently Balenciaga.
So long 2012……
Strong Motif’s made a comeback and with them wardrobe staples you couldn’t miss:
I literally feel lost without a ridiculous amount of rings, all day, every day. Luckily, Phoebe Philo seemed to agree….
Raf Vs Heidi as the two fashion houses went all out to show they had made the right move – They both looked pretty good to me!
Shaping shoes for years to come; shoe of the year arrived in the form of the Valentino Rockstud Slingback!
Victoria’s Secrets landed in the UK and the show…Exploded!!
Happy New Year!!
