Warming to A/W12
I’m feeling very inspired today.
Be it the change in weather or the fact that I’m like a snake when it comes to trends, shedding my style to adapt to new season trends, the release of the new collections for A/W12 has had me inspired and ready for a good old wardrobe overhaul.
Campaigns for A/W 12 have been awash with fashion clashes. By this I mean juxtapositions of trends. For example, take Ashley Isham. Hard lines and leathers clashed with delicate lace to create a beautiful monster. Or take Aquilano Rimondi’s structured tailoring, made feminine with a touch of ribbon and bows: Genius. My favourite has to be, however, the revival of the country man with a ‘lady of the manor’ twist. Think tweed – but not in the Chanel sense. Greens and muted countryside hues, think conkers and Jodhpurs but with an accent of glamour. A tailored silhouette, Burberry’s campaign will be the winter look I will be swaying towards this season. Its one heck of a wish list, the most stylist wish list on the planet. I can feel a whole new wardrobe coming on….can you?
