S/S 2012 Trends – The LPD


As I’ve already mentioned, I think the tribal trend is going to reign supreme for Spring/Summer 2012. So far, apart from that, it seems like everyone is yearning for a LPD – Little Pink Dress. Last season (Fall/Winter 2011), designer’s replaced the everygirls favourite dress (The Little Black Dress) for bright, stark whites. Things are now looking a little more saturated.

The best thing? There seems to be a “Pretty in Pink” moment to suit every taste. Cushnie et Ochs presented a criss-cross halter with a second skin feel, Jenni Kayne added thigh-baring slits to a sleek – and otherwise classic – sheath, Kevork Kiledjian played with multiple pink tones on a body-conscious minidress, and Peter Som blew us all away with a multi-tiered feather dress. I can’t wait to see what other designers have done with the typically femme hue.
