Trend: Pretty Pastels

This spring/summer, designers have embraced pretty pastels. At Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer 2012 show, the audience was treated to fairytale-like, all-white merry-go-round with a model on each horse displaying Marc Jacob’s latest pastel pieces creating a “pretty-princess” look.

Not too far away at Prada, Miuccia showed a collection that took the pretty pastel trend and gave it strength and character by placing it in the world of the 1950’s. She achieved this through the use of classic silhouettes as well as a playful touch of cars. Examples include car-print blouses, automotive themed pumps and leather skirts with a large retro car.

Karl Lagerfeld seems to have also been bitten by the “pretty bug” at Chanel. His spring/summer collection was abundant with lady-like looks in pale washes. Though he included a number of black pieces, the overall feel of the collection is light and pale. This was emphasized through his liberal use of pearls: wrapping them around necks and slinging them around waists.

This trend is so much fun I couldn’t simply make one look.. so here a few ways to style “pretty pastels”.

Topshop top, Rag & Bone jeans, Topshop toecap heels, Miu Miu tote.
