Trends 2012: Asian style

Among the hottest trends proposed for f/w 2012-13 season there's, for sure, the one influenced by the East atmospheres, made of opulence and exoticism. Distant and fascinating countries, each of them characterized by suggestive views and surrounded by an aura of mystery and full  of fantastic stories, myths and legends.

The timeless charm of the Far East had already conquered the fashion world at the begin of the twentieth century, when the historic designer Paul Poiret used it as  inspiration for his collection, characterizing the f/w 2009-10 collection of Dior, Basso & Brooke and Erdem and the s/s 2011 ones of Kenzo, Givenchy, Dries van Noten and Louis Vuitton.

Asian style, with its waelth of floral prints, precious fabrics and  luxurious gold inserts couldn't not be noted, especially in a moment of austerity like this and, this year, is brought on catwalk by brands like Proenza Schouler, Antonio Marras, Etro, Aquilano Rimondi and Jason Wu that show off to us all its cool androgynous look that astonishes and inspires.

I've always liked asian style so much! It makes me think to a a time so far but at the same time so close,  full of charm and glamour. It also makes me think to Mulan and the traditional asian clothes: from the amazing kimono dresses to the traditional umbrellas. Everything in it is so rich, sophisticated and elegant and it meants to be a must for this f/w season. If it's worn with moderation, this is a style that can be suitable to everyone.

If you like it, you can wear this style taking inspiration by the outfits worn by celebs like Katy Perry  Dakota Fanning and Solange Knowles. Check it out:

Solange Knowles at Mulberry's 40th anniversary

My fashion tip? You can opt for a total look, particular and characteristic, or mix it with some casual pieces, like a kimono jacket matched with a pair of jeans, for example,  or combine an origami dress with some asian accessories, without loose that oriental touch so modern and glamour, just like that:

Fuga al Sol Levante - Ladyfairy's polyvore
J.Lo - Miu Miu's polyvore
Crystalline - Miu Miu's polyvore
Asian inspiration - Miu Miu's polyvore
To complete the look take inspiration by the trend makeup seen on Zac Posen's show f/w 2012-13 or check out the Lavish Oriental collection by KIKO or Cherry Blossom by Essence
