This season, you were blind if you didn’t notice one of the major trends for SS and F 2011.
It has been on the runways, magazine covers, on celebrities and throughout a ton of editorials.
Jil Sander, Sonia Rykiel, Moschino, Gucci, Marni, Etro, Prabal Gurung and many other designers hit the runways with bold collections that featured this color blocking trend. I love it so much because it not only feels fresh, but it is the perfect way to work a recession driven industry. Everyone has solid colors in their wardrobe, but not many have thought to be as bold with combination’s like these. There is still a place for pattern and texture in our spring looks, but this trend is a powerful one. There’s no wonder why I’ve seen it everywhere, people recognize the smarts that it took to bring this to the consumer. I can’t wait to experiment with the color in my closet. Go be BOLD!
