Fashion Color Trends Fall/Winter 2011-2012
This fall, there is a diverse range of intricate colors. They all bear a shade of autumn. For the winter, khaki, beige and navy blue made ample exhibits. Let’s now run around the fall sheet and find what’s in vogue. Most significant trend perhaps is the military print. Khaki naturally leads the pack. The Burberry’s and Etro’s are already singing its praises. Beige is doing well over camel. At Gucci, they are present in nude, deglamorized shades. At Chanel, they come in ivory whites. The same is the case for Calvin Klein. This fall, black has been substituted by grey at large.
Apart from colors, there are a lot many prints too. The ethnic ones and the leopard variations, made big by Anna Sui and Emanuel Ungaro respectively.
Colors trail more colors and if Lacoste is anything to go by, then colors are simply getting bigger. Lacoste plays with both sides of color. In its first avatar, a flamboyant, youth-based color pattern of red, green and yellow was used. The second one used daring whites, grey and other earth tones. Anna Sui has experimented a lot with earth colors. She has awed one and all with her natural shades and usage of elementary colors. She has evolved knitting to a different level.
Fall 2011 has a fetish towards military prints. While khaki and green are right at top, navy blue emphasizes upon an urge to get rigorous and coarse. The navy blue blazer is adorned by horizontal zippers in golden and is augmented by svelte tights.
Camel is running rings around the market this fall. Right from cappuccino to cream, it’s a showstopper. In case, you do not concede to the idea of wearing camel from top to bottom, you can mix it with denim or other hues of the Fall like mahogany or copper. Chloe has used long camel boats with hazel pants in the most sophisticated and elegant way possible.
Not only the neutral colors, but also the very strong hues like carmine red, dark turquoise and cobalt are doing just the same to the catalogue. Red is the top color this fall. Carolina Herrera has done a great job with red and used it to portray the essential femininity and grace of the female form. Mark Jacobs is doing just as good a work with red.
