NYFW Fall Winter '12 Collections: Colour Trends

Despite the fact that it usually takes a good year or so for trends to trickle down from the runway to the Perth fashion scene, I love the fact that the showing of the new collections come just before we Southern Hemisphere folk head into the respective seasons.  To keep me sane for the next few weeks whilst I live through 5:45am wake-ups and hour-long train rides, I will be doing some round-ups of what the Fall/Winter collections have to offer.  First up, some colour trends.

Judging from the first 3 days of New York fashion week alone, shades of red from bright poppy to broody maroon are the go for the upcoming season!  There is indeed a shade of red for everyone.  I personally love maroon and will be digging out my darker pieces for this season.


Not as viral, but nonetheless popular - blue has also popped up a number of times out of the 30-odd shows that have already been.  In particular, cobalt seems quite the popular choice, as well as the ever-classy navy blue.

Last but not least, as a change from the usual sea of black - winter white takes centre stage.  How will you wear your white this season?  Will you attain a dress, slip it in with your neutral ensemble, or wear it in a patterned variety?  Team it with pewter a la St John, and if you're feeling it, white-on-white is always a winner.
