Fashion
Trend watch: bright colours

Article by Vicky Wilson

When we think of what to expect from a typical autumn/winter collection, we tend to think of clothing in dark, reserved tones which reflect the cold winter weather.

However, this season the trends for autumn are taking a turn and the colour that we are currently seeing for spring/summer are only going to get bolder and brighter as we head towards autumn. Colour will be a key look for autumn/winter 12 with blues and oranges at the forefront of our wardrobes.

The colour themes are one of the key things to look for at the start of the season and this season the only rule is that it has to be bright, making it easily wearable for many. Whether you go all out with the colour blocking and clashing from head to toe or you simply team an outfit with some colourful accessories, this trend is so accessible.

This colour trend crossed all the major fashion weeks. The Topshop show space in London saw designers such as Mary Katrantzou send beautifully sculptured dresses in colourful hues of yellows, blues and greens down the catwalk, while at the Fashion East collective Maarten van der Horst followed the trend by decorating clothing with bright floral patterns.

Off-schedule at the A La Mode show, Scottish designers Obscure Couture showcased a selection of eye-catching golds and yellows whilst all the models wore bright pink bobs. And at Phoebe English, Merit Award winner at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, the spectacular show ended with vibrant pink dresses contrasting to the black seen in the rest of the collection

Over in Paris, Stella McCartney sent eye-popping cobalt blue dresses down the runway and in Milan, up and coming designer, Mauro Gasperi used colour blocking to show off his Italian style. He mixed classic black tailoring with Mediterranean orange trims to add a little colour to a simple outfit.
