JOYCE Fashion Parade SS 2012

Yes, I missed out another private preview.. very depressing huh? As usual I have been missing out tons and tons of events this month. Trying to take my mind off the outdoor street carnival experience featuring live music performance, customized goodies and the chance to meet Paco Rabanne ( creative director Manish Arora) organized by JOYCE. Thanks to JOYCE for sending me some insider’s trend report so I can still share it with my readers:) And start getting ready for SS 2012!
For the ladies:

Body Conscious
Time to head back to the gym and work out for your new sexy body. This spring, designers have form-hugging designs to show off women’s curve silhouettes. Mugler’s neutral tones of beige is defiantly a challenge.
Tips: If you are not confident in such tight dresses then throw on a long scarf on top to give a bit of distraction to your whole body.

Jacquard, Brocade and Prints
Bring your outfit to life this Spring with vibrant colors, prints and textures. My favorite print from the runway is Rodarte’s inspiration in the natural world of Van Gough’s painterly sunflowers. Textured like fabrics printed on garments will add a new dimension.
Tips: Don’t go too crazy with patterns and prints. If you want to stick to a simple chic outfit use only 1 -2 prints, for example a printed blazer with solid top and bottom.

A trend to create new feminine shapes. The sculpted folds transform top and dresses into architectural masterpieces. It gives female a defined waistline and create great proportion to the body.
Tips: To add a bit more styling to your outfit, try a thick or thin belt. It will make your outfit look more 50s.

Yellow and Electric Blue
Yellow and Electric blue stand out the most this season. The two primary colors will look fab no matter they stick together or stay apart. We can see Stella McCartney’s rich shades of azure blue and Vionnet’s yellow statement dress are truly modern and elegant. Mary Katrantzou’s mixed blues and yellows pops out adventurous.
Tips: Yellow is more suitable for tanned and warm skin tones while blue looks great on pale skin tones. Remember to find the shade of yellow or blue to complement your skin tone instead of making you look tired and dull.
