Black is Back Again for Spring/Summer 2010
My next fashion tip is that although there are a lot of bright and pastel colours arriving for Spring/Summer 2010, black continues to make a big appearance in the collections in varying fabrics and combinations. Androgynous designs were shown at Ann Demeulemeester, mixing black leather jackets, mini skirts and leggings with black and white prints to give a lyrical urban feel. There was an edgy feminine look at Prada, who featured some interesting mini dresses and smocks layered over large 1950’s style knickers. Gucci created a sharp slick look, as they showed a lean body-conscious silhouette, with leggings, mini-dresses and leather jackets, alongside some digitally printed dresses in a black and white combination. The black and white mix was also seen in some striking dresses at Eley Kishimoto and Proenza Schouler. I have posted some links to show the different looks shown at the Spring/Summer 2010 shows at my Facebook Fanpage 'Carmen Woods Fashion Trends'.
