Spring-Summer 2011 trends
It's the beginning of January so it's list & trend time. Who's hot, who's not, what's in what's out. And of course what are the Spring-Summer 2011 trends. ILOVEBELGIUM
Yes, although it's still dark outside and in the mornings the roads can still be slippery, we're already dreaming of airy summer dresses and cute printed tops. The I Love Belgium team listed up the Spring-Summer 2011 trends for you, the overall trend being boldness: don't be afraid to stand out. You've been hiding long enough, the crisis put a weight on your shoulders and it's time to shake it off.
1. Big, bigger, biggest
Boyfriend blazers, sack-like dresses, long flowy skirts,... lose the understatement. It's time for some oversize.
Dries Van Noten has a go at the boyfriend blazer.
Raf Simons did some sack-like (but still feminin) dresses at Jil Sander
I Love Belgium
Skirts touching the floor at Haider Ackermann
The boyfriend blazer with a waist at Véronique Leroy
And at Chanel the quilted bag also goes oversize. Not a Belgian brand you say? Chanel accessories have been designed for years by Belgian queen of accessories Laetitia Crahay (who's also creative director of Chanel owned millinery Maison Michel)
2. A whiter shade of pale
All white silhouettes could be seen everywhere on the catwalk. Not so special in an SS season but the women did not look dreamy like walking into a David Hamilton shoot. They were ready to take you on. White warriors. A tid bit of sci fi, but not in an old skool way.
