Spring 2012 Fashion Trends

January and I am already thinking of spring... Could it be the balmy weather we have received? +13, +15 in January?! Unusual, record setting and FABULOUS. Others would disagree that this climate upswing is a negative global phenom but I'll take the easy commuting and light-jacket-wearing any day! Spring 2012 is packed with color, prints and art. LOVE IT! Here are some looks that were a recurring theme at Fashion Week:
BIRDS
Models donned swans, hummingbirds and doves on the cat walk. This is Giles Spring 2012
 Humming birds by Commuun... Love the turquoise!
Even for men? Givenchy Spring 2012... A little fem for my man ;)
PASTELS
A contrast to the neon's we saw in Spring 2011
Lovely... I am loving this trend.
Adore this pastel Valentino
PEPLUM
This flared design is hot for Spring 2012! Funky! This is Jason Wu
Jason Wu Spring 2012
Extremely chic Giorgio Armani
BAROQUE FLOURISHES
Also known as ornamental designs were all over collections for Spring 2012. This is Aquilano e Rimondi
Peplum and ornamental! This is Thakoon.
Stella McCartney, Spring 2012
DROP WAIST
I'm a huge fan of drop waist as my wedding dress had a dropped waist bodice. This design isn't for everyone though and a slim torso will help you carry it off- nothing like a belly hanging over the dropped waist. HA! This is Chloe.
Reed Krakoff
Love the indigo one in the middle. Gorgeous!
THEME: DEEP BLUE SEA
Last year was nautical, this year is ocean deep! This is Versace
The brilliant Alexander McQueen. Similar to coral, no?
Take a look at that tooth! Givenchy, Spring 2012
DIGITAL IMAGING
Using digital photographs on clothing... Brilliant! This is Akris
Wow. The colors are so brilliant. This is Mary Kartrantzou
Love the feeling this creates
REVEALED MIDSECTION
Love how the belly button isn't shown just the narrowest part of a woman's body almost like the umpire. This is Anthony Vaccarello.
Emilio Pucci. Very dramatic.
Almost looks like a retro TV cut out... Carven
MATTE SATIN
I think this satin looks luxurious and glamorous. This is Miu Miu.
Victoria Beckham, spring 2012
LOVE this Lanvin- I would wear to work!
ABSTRACT ART

Geometric shapes and solid color blocks. This is Herm├Ęs
Gucci Spring 2012. Great party dress!
I like the texture on the skirt. What do you think of these trends?!
