Lucite, my love


From Miuccia Prada’s chunky Perspex heels, see-through plastic handbags and brightly coloured, geek chic glasses to the Fendi Lucite clutch. My love for them is as pure as Lucite itself ;)

And the bold and beautiful Burberry’s Prorsum faceted perspex bangle is an industrial piece that can be considered as a new innovation in the jewelry line.

The gum-ball necklace by Michael Kors to stalagmite stilettos ( Louboutin), the appeal of spring’s Lucite trend is sparklingly apparent.

And if you still haven’t fallen in love with it, or are finding my fixation weird. then you definitely need to look at this Harper’s Bazaar US March Editorial, with Cindy Crawford. And then see for yourself how lucite and Cindy can set the temperatures rising this summer.

P.S : Bazaar India has lifted this one for their April issue ;)

Trend Watch


While researching trends for the what to wear guide i researched the trends for the SS 2010. While this season has been high on shine with many designers using sequins and metallic’s in their collection, a trend which is a trickle of last season, it also had it’s grunge with distressed collection by balmain which is to die for.

But the biggest trend which has hit and is here to stay are the prints, YES !! they are back with full bloom, and this time they are really powerful, with prints ranging from small florals to digital. While Dior, Zac Posen and armani are some of the designers which had floral in their collections, the digital could be seen at McQueen, Versace and many others, here’s a look:-

Other trend to watch out for are BRIGHTS,, not only are they fresh, they are by Dior, Versace and many more. Promising not a single dull day,, the brights are here to stay !

then we had designers who had indian influences and brought the tie n dye and ikat to its full modern usage.

some other wardrobe staples of the season would be the the sheer fabrics and the pastels being spring summer. something else that was often seen were the drapes, iconic in that being the Burbery collection which had light pastel skirts and dresses in twisted drapes coiled along the body.

other trends that were there is the inner wear also termed by Elle mag as the Boudouir, all lace net and silk negligee as the trend for the summers, will be posting style boards for that soon .

till then ,, enjoy these :)

P.S :  So much to blog, so little time.
