Spring 2008: Taste the rainbow: Lines inspired by skittles
I am so happy that New York hasn't truly been hit by the likes of a blizzard or freezing temperatures yet. There has to be actually one day last month where I needed a pair of gloves to keep my digits warm. As I was sitting here thinking about my dream vacation-- which I deserve for next year-- I wondered to myself-- "Self what is the latest styles hitting the stores for this spring?" Self decided to check online and view the ready-to-wear shows. As I got back into first person I decided to see what was hot and what will leave for next year!--
Well I realized that patent leather is here to stay and that we are going to be hit with an Alberta Clipper worth of rainbow colors for 2008. I am excited because the creativity landscape will increase and the usage of different textures will arise. I viewed alot of patchwork arise, crocodile, patent leather and beads. We will not be seeing too much of the Color Purple-- (remember purple was the new black from latter summer to latter fall) The incoming 2008 will set the reign for the color pink in many variations. I love purple but I will definitely be looking forward to that pink. Other colors include powder blue and palm leaf green.
To see a preview of the Spring 2008 Ready-to-wear pieces from the hottest designers check them out below and enjoy them--If we all wish hard enough here in New York winter can be over by the end of February.-- Yeah right in my dreams.
