We have just returned from Premiere Vision in Paris to get a round up of the key fabrics, colour and prints for next season.
Key trends for spring/ summer 2012 include impression prints and botanical washed out florals. The seasons look is 'Colourful paleness', there was lots of bleached out denim and there is a just washed, slightly lived in look to dresses and trousers. Irregular dyed effects and overdyes give a slightly haphazard yet unique look to prints.
There is a strong African influence- think tie dye and abstract. Oriental ceramics and Japan-style mini graphics are also key.
Lets get to work peps!
