TREND ALERT: Three Fabrics to Watch


Carven Fall 2012

Ahhhh, this brings me back to the long black spaghetti-strap velvet dress I wore to the homecoming dance in high school. Not to mention the 3/4-sleeve deep red velvet shirt I used to wear with a choker and jeans. '90s anyone?


Naeem Khan Fall 2012

Proenza Schouler Fall 2012

Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012

Kinda seems like Grandma's old housecoat, right? Or loungewear for Chinese royalty. But it's everywhere this season. Probably the fabric I spotted the most.

Chloé Fall 2012

Balmain Fall 2012

Of the three, I'm most excited about quilted fabrics making a comeback. This also strikes me as rather '90s, but in a tough, sporty way. It creates such voluminous, boxy shapes — also a big trend right now.
