Trends 2012: Ottoman twist

Talking about trends proposed for f/w 2012-13, we've seen intense colors like black, brown, red and green, luxorious fabrics like velvet and brocade and glamurous inspiration like baroque, gothic and soldier style. Could prints miss to this list? Of course not! To animate the cold and grey winter days will be palatial prints inspired by the splendor of Ottoman Empire.

Amazing and rich decors go from delicate floral themes to stylized animals which lines flow to cool geometric themes, each of which reminds to 60's and 70's fashion, for a super glamour effect. Perfect for outwear, this prints are also amazing on suits, dresses, skirt and pants. Brands like Prada, Christian Dior, Versus and Marni, have been conquered by the timeless charm of the oriental atmospheres and, this year, they will make us dream, turning us in so many modern Sheherazade.

I absolutely adore this style! When I worn this kind of prints and I close my eyes, I can feel the breeze of the east winds, smell the parfums of the spices and see the charming colors of Middle East. Is amazing  to see the effect that this style has on me, I imagine sultants, sumptuous palaces and mysterious princesses... I feel like Jasmine on the magic carpet... Back in the real world, I love to wear this style. I like to combine the prints each other and with other basic ones, just like that:

Ottoman prints #1 - Miu Miu's polyvore
Ottoman prints #2 - Miu Miu's polyvore

My fashion tip? Have fun and play with mix and match, contrasts and overlapping colors, to replicate them infinite times. The result is kaleidoscopic and absolutely super glamour!
