Is anyone else getting completely confused about what year it is? I’ve been writing “2012″ ever since the Resort 2012 collections arrived on Style.com (which was about six months ago) and although we’re just coming to the end of 2011 I feel like it should be 2013 by now.
Anyway, the Spring Summer 2012 collections will soon be arriving in store, in time for actual spring 2012 (and just as we’ll be viewing the Fall 2012/13 collections, but let’s not think about that…)
One of the big colour trends for the new year is yellow. Whether it’s so bright it’s verging on highlighter pen chic, as seen at Jason Wu, or is more of the girlish lemon shade, shown at Louis Vuitton, yellow is going to be a big story in 2012. And on the runway it was worn from head-to-toe, so this trend is one for the very brave.
Luckily there are plenty of other ways to dip into the yellow look. Both Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang have designed yellow handbags and DKNY Jeans [left] are championing the zesty-lemon-skinny-jean, which look fabulous worn with a casual grey sweater.
