Now I must admit, while I don’t much care for the cold weather, these fall/winter trends have me dreaming about winter soiree, luxe pashmina stoles, slouchy sweaters and a bag full of my heart’s desire worth romance novels!
Forget Mr. Right- this season it’s his wardrobe we need to be set-up with. From Teddy Boys to Mad Men, fashion is completely smitten by all things male. The oh-so dapper androgynous trend flexed its muscles at Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Michael Kors, Jason Wu, Moschino, Salvatore Ferragamo, Chanel and many more. Well then ladies, it’s time to suit-up.
Trend II: Hue Calling
Winter, Winter come this fall, who is your favourite colour of them all? Well, why all of them, ofcourse! Say goodbye to dark and neutrals, eye-popping jewel tones are here, and from the looks of it, to stay. Catwalks world over saw an array of shades: red, blue, purple, orange, green and many more striking hues. Dare and you will see
even the dullest colour in bright vibrancy.
Blue is definitely F/W ‘11 must have hue. This gorgeous, urbane shade brilliantly combines the masculine line with feminine grace.
Red made a dazzling appearance; from scarlet to garnet and ruby to raspberry, the catwalks’ all over were smokin red- hot.
Amidst the colourful winter palette, the evergreen black and white stunningly stood-out. Many a designers called upon this classic duo to create minimalist masterpieces.
Trend III: Fetish
Gone are the days where fetish was everyone’s dirty little secret. This season we are ditching our inhibitions and unapologetically displaying our love affair with all things kinky. That very moment Kate Moss strutted down Louis Vuitton catwalk wearing bondage boots, loads of attitude and smoking a ciggie, fetish fashion was out, loud and proud. Get set to get your fashion freak on!

Till then, tra-la,
