Fun & Fashion

Are you in a colourful and childish mood but you hesitate to express it? No worries! This summer, fun “splashes” fashion – with catwalks looking like a playground – giving in every woman the chance to reveal the sweet/romantic/crazy girl that hides inside her.

Prada seems to have a Cadillac mania this season! Skirts, bags and dresses with drawings of cars are ready to “hit the road”. In addition, the fashion house suggests with humor heels with a lipstick or a fire detail!

Playtime continues with the peter pan collars being one of the hottest trends! Louis Vuitton showed summer dresses and suits in pastel colors with broderie-anglaise collar, making models look like a kid lost in Never land. Would you ever believe that a collar could look so chic?

For those who want and even more girly style, eccentric designers give ideas how to look like real dolls! Meadham Kirchhoff presented dresses looking-like-cakes, handbags in the shapes of teddy bear and doll-faces, all worn with gold ruffles-wedges and pom-poms on the toes.

Chanel presented renaissance pearls as the most romantic accessory in hair and face!

The Japanese Mikio Sakabe’s summer collection, inspired by the princesse-look, is full of puffy shoulders, full skirts and gowns with big dolly prints.

The Viktor & Rolf duo impressed on the runway with two giant doll-dresses on the stage out of which, models appeared with pink eyelash extensions in a “Polly pocket” look.

Last but not least, Mulberry‘s 2012 Summer Campaign with girls surrounded by huge, delicious ice-creams fills great the funny and childish side of fashion for the summer. Undoubtedly we are all going to love it and enjoy it as much as we can. Besides, is there anything better than being a kid every now and then?
