Although Berlin Fashion Week 2012 is officially over, it’s impact will be felt by the rest of the fashion world for some time to come. Even though it primarily served to reinforce some of the trends foretold last year, by all accounts Berlin made a huge statement. In today’s post we’re putting the spotlight on several blog posts that covered the festivities in Berlin.
After reviewing multiple blog posts and photos, we noticed four themes that kept re-appearing at Berlin Fashion Week 2012.
Biker Fashion Expansion
Seeing the prominence that leather played in Berlin Fashion Week venues reinforces something that we were already beginning to see last year. 2012 will be a huge year for biker fashion. In addition to biker jackets making a splash in Berlin, several blog posts also mentioned seeing an abundance of leather pants, dresses and accessories. Here are a few posts that reflect on the biker trend.
- Leather Accessories from Fossil at Berlin Fashion Week
- Berlin Fashion Week 2012 Leather Dress from Hugo Boss
- Leather Pants a big trend at Berlin Fashion Week 2012
Denim on the Rise
This is something that we’ve spoken about in a prior post where we shared 2012’s up and coming fashion trends. Denim has been on a gradual upswing for decades. However, Berlin Fashion Week 2012 confirms that the best days for denim are yet to come. Here are two posts that seem to support that notion.
- From the Bread and Butter Venue – Denim Takes Over
- This post features denim in men’s fashion as seen at Berlin Fashion Week
Continued Interest in Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns began resurfacing in fashion in 2011. While in and of itself this is an important trend, we feel that it signifies another important point. Geometric patterns, in fashion, are like a time portal that transport us back to two separate eras-the 1980’s and the 1960’s. Judging from the pictures not only were triangles, rectangles and other geometric patterns in heavy attendance at last week’s venues, but they took center stage at the fashion events last week.
The pictures in these two blog posts tell it all.
- Hard to miss bold geometric lines will be an even bigger fashion trend in 2012
- The geometric patterns in these pictures evoke a Mad Men feel
Colors Take on a Life of Their Own
Although color was big in 2011, it will become the focal point of fashion in 2012. Interestingly, color has been a centerpiece of fashion for the last few years. However, what makes fashion colors unique in 2012 is colors no longer need to match or follow accepted fashion norms.
The following posts feature images that paint a better picture of color in 2012.
- Heavy fashion color emphasis
- Indulgent mix of bright colors describes the photos taken at this Marc Jacobs venue
Each of these trends seem to also foretell a beautiful picture for t-shirts in 2012. And if you’re looking for t-shirts to complement any of these looks, Rock Bottom T-Shirts has a large selection of trendy women’s t-shirts at affordable prices.
