An overall mood of Eclectic Elegance emerges for the Fall 2012 season. Eclectic Elegance is about an unexpected mix of luxurious layers, decadent textures, decorative fabrications and opulent embellishments—as seen on the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris. Nature’s richest hues are pronounced throughout, from pine greens to deep ocean blues to vineyard reds. The most notable trends of the season are:

Decorative Fabrics

Whether for day or night, these fabrics add an incredible degree of richness to the season. They range from brocades with elements of shine to plush velvets to jacquards—either with texture or in geometric patterns.

Masculine/Feminine

Menswear gets a feminine touch for fall, with houndstooth checks, herringbones, Glen plaids and pinstripes, providing inspiration for knitwear patterns and print design. Menswear fabrics are cut into ladylike silhouettes, from fitted jackets to sheath dresses and fluid trousers.

Unpredictable Leather

Leather has been used for virtually all categories this season, either in black or in one of the rich, natural hues of the season. From outerwear and jackets to tops, skirts, trousers and dresses, leather appears both all-over and as trims, patches and insets. Look for leather sleeves as a key detail on jackets and coats.

Eclectic Outerwear

We love military-inspired pieces like pea coats, duffle coats and officers’ coats. Elsewhere, outerwear boasts bold pops of color or opulent embellishments. Look for sporty parkas, cozy blanket stripes, plaids, puffy jackets and vests. Fur trim is everywhere, including hemlines, sleeves and collars.

Super Stitches

Fall’s knitwear shows off dimensional stitching. Look for exaggerated cables and updated fisherman’s knits, as well as lacy and crochet stitches.

The Sleeved Slim Dress

This universally flattering look creates a sleek line while covering the arms.

Peplum

This feminine flounce helps accentuate the waist. Look for it on jackets and coats as well as dresses and tops.

Printed Pants

When was the last time pants were the centerpiece of your look? Animal prints, decadent brocades and artful patterns grab all the attention.
