Fall/Winter 2011 Colour Trend: Red-Orange

With Fashion Weeks in Europe drawing to a close, a few colour trends stood out amongst the various collections. The Crayola shade of red-orange for instance, was used by designers in New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Carlos Miele, Proenza Schouler and Reed Krakoff in New York

Carlos Miele’s gathered jumpsuit will be a popular garment this fall season. Many neutral-coloured oversized blazers were spotted on the runways, but this Proenza Schueler piece is funky and eye-catching. And although black sheer dresses were a plenty amongst the New York collections, these sheer red-orange sleeves by Reed Krakoff give a fresh and cheery look to the trend.

Matthew Williamson, Issa and Betty Jackson in London

Matthew Williamson shows that red-orange pants can be edgy, and Issa gave grace and sophistication to this bright dress from his collection. Though Feretti’s outfit could have looked like a prison jumpsuit, the model carries it with a whimsical attitude.  

Gabriele Colangelo, Blumarine and Alberta Feretti in Milan

Designers in Milan showed that red-orange outerwear will definitely be trendy this Fall, and Blumarine used cut-out lace in the same colour for a spin-off of the sheer lace dress.

Lanvin, Sonia Rykiel and Rue du Mail in Paris

Lanvin impressed viewers with dresses that incorporated movement and body, while Sonia Rykiel included red-orange stirrup leggings in her runway show, and Rue du Mail mixed Halloween colours in his red-orange piece.  

Stay tuned for more colour trends from Fashion Weeks!

Jumpsuit of the Day: Carlos Miele at NY Fashion Week

Jumpsuits in the Carlos Miele Fall 2011 RTW collection

 A collection primarily made up of intricately embellished evening gowns, Carlos Miele’s runway show on Monday at New York Fashion Week was a hit, and amidst flowing skirts, metallic details and fur embellishments, these three pieces stood out from the rest.

Acording to Miele, the jumpsuits were his favorite garments from the Fall 2011 Ready-t0-Wear collection. The gathered pants, fitted waist, wrap neck and long sleeves give them look that is classy, sophisticated and refined, while still bold and statement-making.

The hoods worn with the red and white jumpsuits turned out to be quite popular amongst designers at New York last week;nDonna Karan, Zero + Maria Cornejo and  Chado Ralph Rucci also incorporated hooded scarves in their runway styling.
