MUI MUI spring/summer 2012

The catwalks of London, Paris and New York fashion week, showed as it’s  usual an

MULBERRY spring/summer 2012

eclectic array of fashions, from a collection of designers, but a few trends are shining out already, and are definitely being translated into the high street stores.

Lace fabrics, and single prints grand enough to use as statement wallpaper are the biggest shout this summer, and this year the catwalks seemed to take us back to the two piece and layered look, so skirts, trousers and blouses, dresses with jackets, and dresses with design separation at the waist.

The lace trend is the biggest of them all this season, and the more intricate the better, Channel, Mui Mui, and Vera Wang all show lace in their collections, and it can now be seen in the hight street stores including at, Zara, H&M, New Look and Next.

single prints were scattered throughout most of the catwalk collections, and bring us a bit of class and glamour to our wardrobes this summer.

GUCCI summer 2012

The Channel and Gucci collections were full of two piece outfits, making the waist a focal point, and again the high street has picked up this trend pretty quick and filled its shelves with blouses, jackets, tailored pants and pencil skirts. So get mix and matching ladies, and you won’t go wrong.




Mens wear outfitter Burton’s has revealed its latest trends for SpringSummer 2012.

The mens fashion retailer have created a collection using a masculine silhouette that is playful. sporty and easy to assemble. Catering for the festival goer, the casual jeans wearer, aswell as the modern men who like to wear suits.  This season’s collection focuses its trends to add a breath of fresh air to their customers wardrobes.

The formal wear takes its inspiration from the mod men trend, and brings us slim fitting tailored suits, keeping to the Burton high quality tradition, and adding a ‘young trendy guy’ element to the suits. using tonics and sheen to the finish of the fabric which give their suits a lustrous finish.

Spring also sees the introduction of ‘City Trekker’, a trend that has nautical and sporty influences . This look is achieved through colour blocking and combining fresh and bright tones alongside stones and navy blues.   short-sleeved shirts are among the collection, but this season we se different shaped collars, giving men a change from the norm .

Moving into summer, the Trekker Summer uses colour as a statement.  This trend comprises of both casual and beach dressing and mixing this trend with neutrals and whites can make it more accessible as the loud colour pops are not for the faint hearted.  Key pieces include large-scale striped tees and polo shirts as well as geometric graphic tees, bleached out  shirts, bright coloured chinos and chino shorts, fresh short sleeve linen shirts and the coloured boat shoe.

This seasons big trend , across the board is block colour chinos and jeans, and Burton’s have catered for this with no quality spared.
