Elle with River Island's Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Launch!

by - 15 March

I went to River Island's S/S 2012 Fashion launch recently and was excited by their Elle Edits. They include Club House! Peter Pan Collars! Lace Lace Lace! PASTEL! Prints; inc. Scarf Prints & Monochrome & Aztecs and much much MORE! Exciting!

I'm going to share with you what I loved about the show.



Print on Print! Print is everywhere, in form of momochrome, scarf prints and aztec prints this season. The model to the left wears print on print, carefully clashing the prints but yet they go perfectly together with the bits of purple on the printed jeans. The wedges are left to stand out, bright orange/coral is big this season and statement wedges too!



I love this blazer, this is the Club House Trend, Club House usually involves a lot of navy, stripes, black, bit of red and white, so almost a nautical look. What I love about this is that Club House is 'British' Prep, and it doesn't go overboard with the high buttoned up collars, with blazers and briefcase bags which some may veer away from as it can be a very daring and masculine look to pull off. So this is easy British Prep. Photo Below of the navy and white striped and belted skater dress is very nautical and a part of the Club House trend.



As you can see there are stripes everywhere on these models, from shoes to bags to tops to trousers.

Denim on Denim

Double Denim is a key trend this season, be even more trendier with printed denim, the model below wears subtle printed denim, this is ideal for those who don't like to go big and bold with their prints this season. There's something for everyone.



During the show I noticed some small details. Socks with Sandals (below), who'd have thought it? Try chunky knit socks instead of the fine thin ones, but if you're going to go for the thinner ones, I suggest lacy knee high ones.


Yes, that's right, whites and metallics too! Including white skinnies.

This green pastel dress is so candy, very playful, it's all about lace and pastel and Peter Pan collars all mixed in together as I mentioned in my 'Spring Favourites' blog post.

It's the Millie Miami Trend and it's big the coming season for both day and night. I love how this dress is puffed up and pleated. It almost reminds me a of a pencil skirt, absolutely love the structure. The unique neck design perfect for showing off shoulders without wearing a boob tube dress.

It's very feminine and Parisian, louis Vuitton are all over this!



Another Millie Miami, very pastelly, if you won't dare to bare, wear with pastel cream patchwork jeggings [post on this up soon]. This is a cute peter pan collar with pearl and diamante embellishment. You can wear all Millie Miami will pearly jewellery to add to the pastelly effect, or even gold jewellery.



And the hyper feminine look is not only for girls, ooh no.
