~ spring 2012 Trend Report ~

3 Oct

The strongest trends for spring from ball gowns to floral suits took shape on New York Fashion Week’s runways

Sporting Goods

This season, designers use mesh to express their ongoing interest in athleticism. The perforated fabric forms skirts, dresses, jackets, and even accessories, like oversized day clutches and sporty heels.

Rag & Bone

The Princess Diaries  

Floor-length skirts in silk taffeta, tulle, and organza are paired with everything from boxy lace to spandex tube tops to address everyone’s inner princess—even those who favor biker boots.

Jason Wu

Oscar de la Renta

Christian Siriano

Faded Glory  

Though most designers favor ultraviolet colors for spring, there is a strong counter from the pastel contingent. Baby-pink, blue, and light yellow sequins, silk, and cotton are at their best when mixed together.

Proenza Schouler

Calvin Klein

Digital Age

Vibrant florals, Navajo graphics, and apocalyptic prints are twisted, flipped, and faded through high-tech printing methods to give feminine dresses a fresh edge.

Prabal Gurung

Vera Wang

Bauhaus Brigade

The simple, functional lines used by designers like Narciso Rodriguez and Cynthia Rowley evoke the rational theory of architecture championed by the Bauhaus school in the early twentieth century.

Floral Row

For spring, designers favor head-to-toe florals on slim-cut suits. The flowery prints descend from tailored blazers to skinny pants—or very short shorts—for surprisingly cool summer suits (and easy-to-mix separates).

DKNY

Prabal Gurung

Peter Som

Peplum Power  

For spring, designers use peplums to add structure to dresses or a feminine touch to suits. Whether printed, cinched, lace, or hung low on the hips, a slight pouf at the waist will be spring’s must-have accessory.

For The Birds

Fashion has abandoned cats for a season and crowned the bird print king. Marc Jacobs uses a colorful, abstract print, while Carolina Herrera chooses more literal avian illustrations—and there are dozens of other interpretations offered in between.

Best Eyes

 “While many New York designers showcased glowing skin and strong brows, statement-making peepers were far and few between—which is why Rodarte’s smoldering navy eyes provided a welcome dose of drama.” —Emily Hebert, beauty editor, ELLE.com

Rodarte

Solange Knowles may have been this season’s Sofia Bush, but Nicki Minaj wins for her adoring tweets and big front-row smiles. Minaj popped up everywhere from Oscar de la Renta(“Oscar is a very handsome man”) to Prabal Gurung(“The new Prabal Gurung collection is to die for…gagging”), dishing heaps of praise along the way.

Most Dramatic

“It’s always dramatic just getting to the Marc Jacobs show, which is now notorious for its early start time—but we loved the dramatic tableau arrangement of models who looked as though they were one part Fosse and one part Southern dance hall.”—Joann Pailey, market director

Marc Jacobs

Best Style

When Olivier Theyskens landed at Theory, the number one question was, “Can he do casual?” In the year since, he’s proved his innate skill at mixing the high and low. From pairing sequined pants with cotton jackets to ball gowns with biker boots, the man knows how to build an outfit—no Paris atelier necessary—and teach his girl how to wear it.

Theyskens’ Theory

Most Musical

“Amazonian conga drums tied for best music. They were used at Donna Karan and Michael Kors, and I left feeling I wanted to book a trip to the jungle for my next vacation. And wear a tie-dye sarong when I get there.” —Joe Zee, creative director

Donna Karan

Michael Kors

Class Rebel

“Backstage is always a war zone; time is short, space is tight, and stress levels soar. But at Thakoon, there were also bursts of joy in the form of colorful, powdery clouds. Though his show was set against the gilded backdrop of New York’s Plaza hotel and featured rhinestone covered silk prints, the designer gave his models hair more punk rock than princess.”—Emily Hebert, beauty editor, ELLE.com

Thakoon

Class Clown

Thom Browne staged his spring presentation at the New York Public Library. He dressed his room as a lady’s apartment, with women playing the part of furniture, curtains, and even birds—in the case of a feathered dress worn inside a human-sized birdcage. It was the sequined mermaid that said, “Yes, you’re supposed to giggle.”

Thom Browne

Most Inventive

Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez proved they could produce a classic handbag on their first go-round, so now they get to have fun. These old-fashioned camera cases will be the first thing every loyal Proenza fan pulls out of her PS1 come spring.

Proenza Schouler

Best Duo

“The accessories at Carolina Herrera were such a perfect complement to the clothes and really drove home the look—exactly why I love accessories: They elevate without taking over.”—Jodi Belden, associate accessories editor

Carolina Herrera

Valentino

Party Animal

“Valentino was a man of the people this season, celebrating at the Barneys and Carine Roitfeld karaoke party at Westway. He took to the former strip club’s stage, along with longtime partner Giancarlo Giammetti, and belted out Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way.’”—Keith Pollock, editorial director, ELLE.com

Best Smile

 “Pink lips were popular last spring—but never like this. Backstage at Prabal Gurung, M.A.C maestro Charlotte Tilbury made puckers resemble ‘beautiful orchids,’ darker at the center and brighter along the perimeter. Though I’ve accidentally flaunted this lip in public after a glass or two of red wine, I’m too wimpy to wear it on purpose. But I admire the artistry behind it!” —Emily Hebert, beauty editor, ELLE.com

Prabal Gurung

Beyonce

Most Changed

J.Crew’s mastered the art of reinvention. It may have started as a go-to destination for chinos and polo shirts, but in the past couple of years it’s morphed into the go-to place for uptown weddings and downtown style. Last week, they staged their first fashion week presentation at Lincoln Center and snagged the ultimate star—Beyoncé. The pregnant superstar showed up in custom J.Crew collection, a cream-colored sequin dress. Sounds like it’s time to place your bets on J.Crew’s first red carpet appearance!

Solange Knowles, J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons, and Beyoncé

J.Crew

Best Dancer

After a day of walking the runways, the models of NYFW hit the dance floor. Jourdan Dunn and Hanne Gaby got glow-stick happy at the Alexander Wang after-party, and Chanel Iman hit the banquettes at Milk studios for the Teddybears performance. All in all, they made for an impressive party brigade.

Rodarte

Most Artistic

“We went ‘crazy’ for Rodarte’s Van Gogh–inspired prints and embroideries. Luckily no one lost an ear.”—Joann Pailey, market director

Rodarte

Alexander Wang

Most Athletic

Alexander Wang’s runway was like a super-chic locker room—the mirrored walls reflected zip-up mesh anoraks, parkalike party dresses, perforated leather backpacks, and NASCAR-worthy jackets. He printed dresses with stadium seating and gave a few girls motorcycle helmets, just in case his sporty tribute wasn’t clear.

Alexander Wang

Cutest Couple

Together, Chris Benz and Alejandro Ingelmo prove unstoppable each spring. This time around, they added sneakers to the mix—so if you prefer to leave the five-inch platforms at home come spring, you’re in luck.

Chris Benz

Most Outgoing

This was a battle fought between two blonds: One, a 6’4″ Swede known for playing a vampire, came by his locks naturally, while the other, a troubled 5’5″ starlet who could’ve used Fashion Week to make a graceful comeback, did not. Alexander Skarsgård, who’s in town filming his latest movie, was listed on almost every party tip sheet. But aside from a late-night appearance at Mulberry’s bash, you were more likely to find him having lunch solo at Café Gitane. Lindsay Lohan, however, was everywhere—despite a little social media-ignited drama, nothing could deter her from making a late-night appearance.

 The Westside Highway

Coolest Hangout: The Westside Highway

Fashion Week didn’t just favor the west side of Manhattan during the day. Once the sun set, the pack abandoned art galleries in favor of the Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room, Westway—the strip club turned hipster dive lounge—and Pier 40. On Saturday night alone, they played host to parties thrown byPurple magazine, Barneys, and Alexander Wang, respectively—making it infinitely easier for the well-heeled to party-hop.

Alwxander Wang's niece

Best Dressed

Alexander Wang’s niece, Alia, was first documented as a stylish front rower at his fall 2011 show, where she wore a black shaggy fur, and a cross-body Chanel bag. This season Alia went for a look after her uncle’s own heart in a bondage top, leather skirt, and black hi-top sneakers. Could she be the face of an Alexander Wang kid’s line…? We can only hope so.
