Fashion Week: Trends from FW12 (PART 2)

Last week we gave our initial observations fresh off the last leg of fashion week … This week we combed through some of our favorite looks and noticed some more trends among them. Most noticeably was all the new looks with sleeves and shoulders — It’s definitely a thing. More than a thing. Over-sized sleeves, sheer sleeves, fur sleeves and layered sleeves. Additionally we are seeing embellished shoulders with everything from rouching to sequins to fur to lace. In outerwear we saw pairings between long evening dresses and moto jackets, as well as a large showing of bomber jackets, pea coats and our absolutely favorite — Capes! Another major new theme was opera length gloves. Most shows (unless your name is Lanvin or Valentino) shy away from gloves altogether but this time around everyone was showing long gloves. Pattern wise, geometric squares and matching prints took over the runways.
