Trend Driven: Oriental Inspired for Fall 2012

Osman’s Autumn/Winter 2012 collection was one of my London Fashion Week highlights, and I’ve since become totally obsessed with the season’s oriental designs. The trend has already made its red carpet debut, with Dakota Fanning wearing a striking Proenza Schouler design to the CFDA Awards and Diane Kruger slipping into a chic black and white Derek Lam number.
If you’re not quite ready to go for the full head-to-toe look incorporate oriental influences into your wardrobe by mixing embroidery and bold silk brocades with leather and classic tailoring. This is one trend that works just as well in small doses as it does in full force…
Are you a fan of Fall 2012’s oriental inspired designs? How do you plan to style this trend?
