I like neon, but not sure about transparent fabrics.

Fall 2012

  • Craft-inspired pieces with a “handmade look” such as crochet and patchwork as a print.
  • Oversized pieces like palazzo pants. “Things are going to be longer and bigger as well as skinnier and shorter.”
  • Wild animal prints but “moving away from the leopards and cats to smaller animals.”
  • Substract cutting using “futuristic lines where all angles come together.” Example: Yohji Yamamoto exhibit in London.
  • Elevated sportswear with less is more in perspective and just keeping essential things. The ‘parka’ is a key item for the season.
  • Transparency in clothing. Example: the final looks of the Burberry show.
  • Digital-inspired neon looks. The use of materials such as plastic, aluminum, metal.
