Trending | All Things Tribal Summer 2012

In continuation with my Summer Trends series, Tribal fashion is in right now.

Whether it’s Tribal prints on dresses, bikinis, shoes, Tribal motifs on bags or Tribal-inspired accessories, All Things Tribal are trending this summer.

Tribal prints and Tribal inspired fashion is similar to Leopard prints, when worn appropriately; it adds character, individuality and a touch of exoticism to your wardrobe without ever going out of fashion.

We see it on celebrities Nina Dobrev and Heidi Klum…

I’ve only recently seen this young starlet in action in The Vampire Diaries after a friend’s (huge TVD fan) relentless persuasion and man, she is gorgeous on screen. She is seen rocking a Tribal Skirt here.

Harper’s Bazaar UK tracks the trend on the runway, with Burberry’s tribal trench and accessories leading the trend.

Robinsons and mio TV presents PRIMETIME FALL FASHION

Hello all readers!

Sorry I’ve not been updating for almost two weeks! Pretty ironic as I had a school break for the whole of last week but I didn’t update because I was sick and still had to prepare for a CCS presentation today! Thankfully I’ve recovered since and the presentation today went well! Hallelujah! 😀

As you can tell, my post today is mainly to inform you, if you don’t already know, that Robinsons is collaborating with mio TV to present PRIMETIME FALL FASHION! You can join in the fun by checking out http://www.nuffnang.com.sg/robinsons/ ! 😉

And since we’re on that topic, I shall show you a few images that I think are the BEST of Fall Winter 2011! Awesome or what? Here we go!

Starting with Givenchy‘s iconic prints on a bright yellow to chase your winter (or rainy for that matter, in Singapore) blues away. I love Givenchy’s entire FW 2011 collection btw. Their prints on scarf are definitely collector’s item and their fierce Rottweilers T-shirt designs have already sold out!

Before Bini and I attended Hermes’ launch party for their showcase at Paragon almost two weeks back, we visited the Givenchy store and the staff expressed their surprise at how hot the Rottweiler top was. They didn’t think it would spark so much interest and be sold out so quickly. Indeed, fashion is a capricious industry, there’s no telling which is the next item and why! Although the reason could very well be associated to the media – publicity made it popular. Although it could also possibly that people just liked the print and how ferocious it looks, a like tattoo design.

Next up, I am loving these summery colours on Fall Winter clothings… You simply can’t take away the summer love in me.

60’s Mod look in Pink and Orange combi from Bottega Veneta.

YSL – can’t really tell if this is a dress or a a coat with a furry or feathery skirt – in bright plume.And of course, we can’t go through Fall Winter without having some of Burberry goodness.

 I simply love the berets and the simplicity in colours, it’s tres parisian. I love how the arms of the red coat poufs up like princess sleeves and the white coat reminds me of a poodle! Both coats are fit for a princess.

Talking about princess, leads me to the last and my favourite collection out of the lot – Jason Wu’s Fall Winter 2011. The collection is simply sublime. He is said to be inspired by Baroque, which he incorporates in his designs through the lace (also a big Fall /Winter trend). I love the simplicity and refinement of his designs which exudes elegance.

In a series of looks, Wu empowers women with very manly forms that resembles the italian mafia, suit-ed up man and dandy man’s wardrobe respectively…

In another selection of designs, Wu create looks for women that are formal and just enough part of lovely with the prints, lace and dotted leggings without being overly saccharine. And more impressively, they still come across cool in every way. (I am certain the sunglasses had a great part to play.)Lastly Wu’s gowns are simply gorgeous. One’s in my favourite pink and black combination and another beautiful long gown with a sexy high-slit cut.

Ending of with an image of the man himself!
