In terms of fabrics, velvet is without doubt one of the hottest trend for Winter 2012.

Designers like Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Lanvin, Balmain, Bottega Veneta and others presented exceptional creations based on velvet. What we witnessed: Skirts in Burberry Prorsum, suits and coats in Ralph Lauren, trousers styled with leather shirts in Balmain, Blazers and dresses for Giorgio Armani, dresses for Lanvin and Gucci.
Velvet is the perfect choice, the fabric itself brings out a glory needed in such hard times the world is facing. The richness, the deep colors and the dark romance is represented in one trend only. Dare to try it out? I started by purchasing a pair of velvet black slippers, next item on my list would be a velvet blazer- as a huge fan of blazers owning one is urgent enough.
Carven’s red dress took my breath away along of course with Ralph Lauren’s suits. But I already mentioned it above…
