In the Spring time, fairy tales come true!
Welcome back to a new season in a new year!
New seasons bring new fashion, and it’s easy to tell it’s that time again with all of us here at Vancouver Fashion Week swiftly getting things ready for another amazing show! The Fall/Winter 2012 season is without question going to be the most exciting and dynamic event of the year! In the mean time, we can’t help but obsess over our favourite collections Spring/Summer 2012 has already fostered.
Valentino’s Haute Couture’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection remind us of a fairytale, accentuated by soft aesthetics of silk and beaded dresses. The collection highlights the simplicity of nature; emphasized by playful fabric and dewy makeup, it tell tales of romantic Spring evenings. This season’s Haute Couture collection is girly and whimsical, but nonetheless stunning, as is always the case with Pierpaolo Piccoli and Maria Grazia Chiuri

To continue the celebration of naturalistic inspiration, Givenchy’s Spring 2012 collection highlights H20 in a way that soars past flowing cuts and oversized shark-tooth necklaces.His fabrics are intoxicatingly exotic; using variations of eel skin and sea wolf (to name a few) added incredible depth to this water-enthused collection. The tailored sequin suits and dresses sparkle like the mysteries of the deep sea; yet we are drawn by the simple, strong dark green skirts and wonderful coral silk pieces. Riccardo Tisci ladies and gentlemen, has done it again. See more of Givenchy’s S/S 2012 Haute Couture Collection here.

Our excitement doesn’t end with Valentino and Givenchy and neither does the water theme. Donatella embraced the sexuality of our favourite fairy-tale creatures in her delectable Spring 2012 collection: mermaids. With coral yellow, light green, and striking black dresses covered in gold outlines of seahorses, starfish and of course mermaids. Versace successfully celebrated the wonders of the ocean and left us desperate for more.
As a few of our favourite designers celebrate Mother Nature, we celebrate all their creativity and chew our nails in anticipation for what could possibly end up at Vancouver Fashion Week this season. Excited?
