Spring 2012 Trend: Pleats

5 Mar

Pleats are a massive trend this season, and if Fall 2012 collections are anything to go by, they are not going anywhere in a hurry.

The beauty about it is the very many ways designers have expressed the trend, from dresses, to skirts to tops! who would have thought pleats could show up in more than just skirts.

If you’ve ever been fascinated by accordion pleats, this is your opportunity to rock the trend in the most creative way you can think about. The great thing is that you’ve got tons of styles to get inspired by. Your go to designer for variety is most definitely Chloe, just look below.

Prada did some really beautiful pleated dresses, the powder blue and yellow dress is a sure favourite.

The Chloe collection was centred around accordion pleats and shows the most versatile ways of wearing the trend. It doesn’t get better than a pleated blouse tucked into shorts with a blazer thrown over.

The Luxe edit: Crème of Spring 2011 Bags

20 Nov

Spring 2011 is looking awfully beautiful for fashion. But then, it was pretty obvious from the Fashion weeks. I’ve been looking at the accessories over and over and it’s a deluge of beautiful pieces to choose from.

Talking about the bags, it is a sea of endless possibilities ranging from clutches to totes to the new small bag. I already did a previous post on my top 40 Spring 2011 bags. Right now, i’m awed by these pieces I consider pure art. My favourite is the Lanvin with a bronze leaf detail.
