Roberto Cavalli 2012 Resort Trend Preview

Hello Truffles Girls,
I’m back with a beautiful runway collection that will surely inspire your fun, playful side. Famed fashion designer Roberto Cavalli shared his acid-toned print resort collection with us and I’m hear to bring you a sneek peak of what’s coming up for 2012. In case you haven’t seen the memo, influences from the 70’s and 80’s are back with multi coloured floral bouquet prints in monochromatic colors. Playful hues in lemon, lime, red, rose and royal left jaws dropping and some in tears. Tie-dye prints and acid washes on a wide variety of fabrics and skins, from chiffon and crepe de chine, to printed knits and  leathers set the mood for a collection with pieces for everyone. I also even saw a new and unusual leopard print. As if our eyes hadn’t had enough, hand painted ivory, red and black completed the show in true cavalla style demonstrating that a younger more casual approach was on his mind. For the jewelery, reflective fabric with crystals and pearls, created a new techno iridescence. Fine bone porcelain was used to make floral chokers and bracelets with hand painted gold leaf detailing further accentuated the floral motifs. The classic Cavalli serpent this time was made from tiny engraved gold flowers arranged to form the shape of the snake. So what can we take for our own personal style from the sneek peak of what’s to come? Well even if you tend to wear a lot of black, mixing in some of the beautiful colors by adding a bold top or skirt is what I recommend. If you are more fashion forward, definitely go for the print pants and don’t be afraid to play with romantic skirt lengths and flirty layers of ruffles as well. Lace touches are always a must have in any wardrobe any time of year and they are terrific layered under jackets and suits for fall and winter. As a rule, don’t mix to many different prints together but have fun mixing the new styles in with your wardrobe basics.

Christian Dior Resort 2012

Coral Caftan Dress

The sixties flavor was in full focus at the Dior 2012 Resort Show. It’s not just in those Liz Taylor-worthy caftans but the collection was filled with crochet dresses and gamine drop-waist dresses with ruffled hems made slightly exotic with bands of sequins. I personally loved the his clean lines and fresh comfortable style. My favorite looks included a fitted jacket with pleated skirt, print pants, coral caftan dress and Poka-dot blouse. The footwear (latticed raffia flats) and accessories (big resin bracelets for stacking up the arm Nancy Cunard-style) did as much work as the clothes in conveying the collection’s message. And let’s not forget the hats. Lovely.

2012 Resort Preview: Oscar de la Renta’s Picasso

Resort 2012

High above 42nd Street in his new raw and unrenovated space, grand master of couture, Oscar D La Renta displayed his meticulously constructed Resort 2012 collection. With Picasso’s Cubist period as inspiration, the designs looked like they could’ve been lifted from a canvas or sculpture. We saw pieces that were beaded and embellished— just how his ladies like it. The artist’s Spanish roots were clearly celebrated in the collection’s matador jackets; high-waist, narrow-cut pants; embellished waists and pompom trim flamenco hats made of construction paper. If you thought the headgear was a bit over the top, a polka-dot evening dress was de la Renta at his best. And there was more where that came from. Flouncy gowns in shades of flamenco red, blossom pink, and vivid green hues will be lighting up dance floors come the holidays. So what can we attribute Oscars full of life collection?? Maybe it’s the new address.
