Once again the fashion world stands in awe of the talent seen on Parisian runways. One designer in particular is honoured for his dedication to one of the world’s most luxurious brands, while all designers continue to provide us with cool new trends to covet.
In 2001 Alber Elbaz joined Lanvin and has managed to turn a once modest family brand into the luxury powerhouse it is today. Through continuous innovation and collaboration, Elbaz has secured a place for Lanvin in the fashion industry for many years to come.
Colour continues to be splashed across several runways and a clear 60s inspiration is still seen. Boxy cuts with geometric prints in bold colours are definitely an excellent way to spice up next fall.
Not only is colour all over the runways, but hair is getting a good dose of tint from ombre to bold yellow; ever colour was seen on the models.
A continuing trend is the reinvention of the tux. Several designers showed a tailored tux for 2012’s more formal occasions.
Finally, a cool trend coming out of Paris is the fusion of modern designs with historical pieces. From Baroque to Elizabethan, many signature European fashion eras are being reinterpreted on the runways.
From applauding a modern fashion genius to pulling inspirations from geniuses past, the fall 2012 ready to wear collections are definitely prompting a fashion reinvention next fall.
