The first days of the Paris Fashion Week have brought a more toned down style attitude compared to the Milan Fashion Week and the Guy Laroche spring 2012 definitely subscribes to this tendency bringing fabulous designs that don't go over the top, but that remain interesting nonetheless.
Wild colors and bold prints might have grabbed our attention at
the Milan Fashion Week, yet
overly daring outfits rarely translate into real world outfits.
That's why well defined outfits with carefully controlled focal
points generally attract the most attention and the Guy Laroche
spring 2012 collection is definitely constructed with this idea in
mind. With a sporty vibe and a straight forward approach, the brand
offers several alluring outfit ideas.
Subtle ruffles, decentered necklines, abstract print styles, leather skirts and form fitting dresses have captured the most attention in terms of style trends with the most potential to become mainstream style directions for the upcoming warm months. The emphasis on femininity is well represented with the multitude of skirts and dresses available. The high split spotted several times during this edition of the Fashion Week is also adopted by the brand for a more seductive touch.
The color palette is fairly well defined and revolves mostly around versatile colors such as khaki, navy, grey, whites, yellow or soft orange. Unsurprisingly, the accessories are kept simple and the color palette remains fairly subdued. As a result, the accessories blend with the rest of the outfits rather than standing out as an additional focal point of interest.
