Trending | Printed Blazers Summer 2012

In the thick of summer, I’m glad to present the first of a series of Summer 2012 Trends, Printed Blazers! Printed Blazer is a trend that started late 2011 and it hasn’t caught on fire yet. But it’s certainly a trend that is still growing and I expect high street fashion labels to be producing and selling affordable printed blazers very soon!

Printed Blazers as seen on celebrities Blake Lively & Rihanna.

I love Lively’s sophisticated and carefree sense of style. Not sure where she got this blazer that seems like a digital print of paint daubs but I found a high fashion label blazer that resembles this piece, see below!

Rihanna’s Printed Tuxedo Blazer is also amazing, on one hand it looks like a digital print inspired by peacocks and it also resembles Van Gogh’s starry starry night painting albeit in vibrant saturated colours. Love.

Luxury labels Celine and Balmain have led the trend with their beautiful prints in their Resort 2012 collection. Check these out.

Although it’s a far cry, but this blazer does slightly resemble the colourful blazer that Lively wore. While Lively’s blazer is artistic, Celine’s prints are more tribal inspired.

Designed by Olivier Rousteing, successor to  Christophe Decarnin, Rousteing carries on Balmain’s super-luxe rocker chic aesthetics which garners hearts from girls all around the world, including my own. <3
