2010 was an exciting year for fashion. It approached many different trends and also trends famous long back and redacted it. While Chanel did a little country segment back in Paris, there was a lot of pretty ‘bare-it-all’ in Michael Kors and Hussein Chalayan collections. Fall brought a breath of fresh air when Louis Vuiton brought a little 50s twist with bold midi length skirts. There was a lot of vintage in the air with adaptation not only from the 20th century but also beyond. An excerpt from the old Chinese red silk to the exquisite Egyptian gold here are those timeless hues in your wardrobe of 2010.
Camel is a color which is ageless, classic and timeless. It was introduced by Chloe and then was used by every major designer like Maxamara and the less expected, Yves Saint Laurent. Prada’s Miuccia showed camel patent leather two pieces that screamed 70′s in a modern way that only she could do. Stella McCartney, Gucci, Dries and Michael Kors too paid homage to the most decadent neutral of the season. Timing, they say, is everything. A trend back in the 50s and 70s has materialized in the 21st century of minimalism.
Red– the signature color of Valentino– gained more momentum when it became quite a star shade past year. Red was a prevailing color and was touched by designers like Giambattista Valli, Jean Paul Gaultier, Michael Kors and even Yves Saint Laurent in their pre-fall collections. It symbolizes attitude, passion as well as elegance and that is why it can be experimented by Vivienne Westwood and Balenciaga at the same time. The experimental trend of 20s and 40s is back on the pages of all.
Burnishing golden got an ageless label when people like Cameron Diaz, Chanel Iman and Sigourney Weaver wore it the same season. It has gained more popularity in the red carpet and on runway last summer. It is more flattering on skin and is thus ageless. This jewel tone is effortlessly beautiful and bold.
The onset of the color actually started in 2009 when everyone labeled nude as the Spring White. The great tranquilizer was used by Donna Karen in her spring/Summer 2010 collection which screamed newness and comprised of soft skirtsuits and body loving draped dresses. Fendi gave it Parisian style; Givenchy added ruffles while Burberry used it with a little twist of putting this color on fur. It got worldwide recognition when it featured on Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire to name a few.
