Introducing the reigning color of 2012/2013 season….. PURPLE!!

6 Jul

Purple… It is the colour of luxury and passion, of princely robes and papal vestments, dazzling gems and florid prose. And now it’s the reigning colour of the season.

“Historically purple was only worn by an elite few, but in autumn/winter 2012-13 it will be for everyone,” explains Vogue fashion editor Francesca Burns. “It is undoubtedly the colour of the collections.”

Wear head to toe, from amethyst eyes to violet shoes.

How to wear it….?? See what the designers have come up with…

The Power of Purple

  • This is not a trend that relies on key pieces – everything from trouser suits to cocktail dresses, handbags, ankle boots and clutches are ultra violet for autumn/winter 2012-13.
  • Even the runways were saturated in purple shades – Christopher Kane, Prada and Gucci all carpeted their venues in this arresting shade.
  • On a beauty note, look to Roberto Cavalli where washes of purple lit up models’ eyes.
