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.
