Runway Notes Spring/Summer 2012 – Midriff Bearing

If the bright lady-like trends of the spring aren’t for you, maybe you’ll like this tough girl look that’s popping up at many of the contemporary runway shows, the bare midriff. These aren’t the eighties neon midriff-bearing outfits, but black and white sleek urban looks, that we love.

Lanvin Resort 2012 Lookbook

I’ve been looking through the resort 2012 collections and I’m feeling thoroughly inspired. I love the satin trousers, the blazers, and I’m definitely going to post the best of the incredible gowns from these collections soon. Today, though I have to bring your attention to the Lanvin Resort 2012 lookbook, it is fantastic and can stand in for an editorial as is. Models Daphne Groeneveld and Kristina Salinovic exude glamour and fun, and make a gray staircase look like the chicest place to hang out, but Daphne really steals the show with her “Whip My Hair” action.


Let’s Get Some Shoes

Here’s something for the shoe fiends in all of us

Rick Owens sandals that I really want

Rodarte, this trend of wearing pumps with sheer socks also appeared on Cynthia Rowley’s runway. It’s a great alternative to going barefoot and getting blisters or wearing the little nylon socks that look silly if they stick out of the shoe.

Runway Notes – Vests from Resort 2012

Vests are definitely a trend this year for fall, but they are also going strong in the resort 2012 collections.

Spring/Summer 2011 Crochet Trend

From the runways it’s evident that crochet is back again this summer. What I’m liking about this is it’s not looking so frumpy this season. It’s got some edge and an easy chic style.

Fashion For Relief

We at RYGGRAD are always eager to promote a good cause. So today our post is dedicated to the Fashion For Relief runway show. In order to raise funds for the Japanese Red Cross, a fashion show was held at the Cannes film festival, on May 16th. It was hosted by Naomi Campbell and editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani. These are some of our favorites from the runway.
