I’ve spent few hours watching the men’s spring/summer 2012 fashion shows and the only thing that comes to my mind is WOW!
Amazing colours, fun 70′s inspiration, beautiful treatments on fabrics, incredible accessories, croc and snake, pretty loafers and luscious raincoats are just few things we will see in the streets next spring/summer.
Givenchy: Greens, garden/flower prints, whites. For spring/summer 2012, Riccardo Tisci put aside the traditional black and white to counterbalance with the aggressiveness of fall. It is very refreshing to see vivid flower prints and other nature based theme. I am not crazy about the skirts, but I guess they were for the show, probably not gonna be mass produced… at least probably not for the american market.
Burberry Prorsum: 70′s inspiration, jewel tones, red, green, teal, purple: For spring/summer 2012, Christopher Bailey imagined his custumer right in the middle of the 70′s, in east village. Beanies, battik prints, parkas and loafers are must items of the collection. Definitely one of my favorite collections for next spring/summer, very rich and luxe but casual and wearable at the same time.
Neil Barrett: Black and white (of course), beige and army green. Neil Barrett is another one of my favorite. You can always expect edgy/rock chic and english sophistication from the designer. I love the patterns and plaid (usually associated with fall season) and LOVE this leather/cotton trench coat. Chunky shoes and leather, lot’s of leather are also part of Neil Barrett’s spring/summer.
Louis Vuitton: Luxe, luxe, luxe. LV is the symbol of luxe and the spring/summer 2012 is no exception. Amazingly expensive fabrics, croc coats, leather goods, gold knits and colourful plaid. I’m in love with the short golf coats, the sandals and of course, the leather accessories.
