Are you all still celebrating and enjoying summer? Or thinking about Fall already? As you know I’ve done quite a bit of shopping this past holiday. Mostly looking for great summer sales items of course, but of course I could not help but look at some of the new fall collections as well. I was delighted to see that the colours have not disappeared just yet!
Above you can see the Pantone fashion colour predictions for Fall 2012. In the shops I did indeed notice a lot of the ultramarine green, which is a colour I love. I saw many bags in this colour and was tempted many times….
Pink flambe is a colour I need to warm up to but I saw many lovely creations featuring this colour.
I saw more royal blue, which is brighter, than Olympian blue in the shops. And in fact I got seduced by a lovely top in that that colour, which you will just have to wait for to see 🙂
I was also happy to see the rose smoke in this colour selection. Although some of you find me too pale in this colour, I still love it and it’s great that I can continue to wear some of my favorite pieces without any problem (not that I stick to the fashion colours strictly, but still….).
And I was happy to see the honey gold in shops as well. As you know I purchased a dress in this colour not so long ago, and pretty soon I will also show you a top in that colour.
Tangerine is still there too. I was surprised to still see many items in that colour for fall, even though I don’t think that colour has been a huge success in shops for the summer season.
In general though, I love all of these colours. They are still bright colours, but just slightly softer than the really bright summer colours that we saw in summer, which suits me a little better. The very light pastels are gone, save for my favorite old pink, which is great.
Of course there were plenty of neutrals in the shops as well and the predicted leather, which was everywhere. I was seduced by many items created out of leather, or that featured leather, but sensible me won in the end. (Singapore is just too hot for leather). But you can be sure that I will feature these creations with leather on the site for all of you who are lucky enough to be able to wear them! If you like to know how all these new colours are worn, you may like to have a look again at some of my earlier trend predictions for fall 2012. Based on what’s actually coming in stores now, I will soon release my definitive report on the Fall 2012 trends.
Are you looking forward to the new fall collections or still enjoying your summer clothes?
