it’s so funny how fashion works… remember a few years ago when grey was the most refreshing color out there?  and now i’m so excited for all the new silhouettes and bright colors, print mixing and bold color blocking. Street styling is going to be so much fun to watch this spring in Manhattan! a lot of these trends work really well together too, which if done properly, could make some really wild new interpretations of the trends.  Obviously 70’s and print mixing go, and color blocking, minimalism and long skirts fit seamlessly together, but minimal maximal, like Prada’s graphic prints on simplistic silhouettes, Jil Sander’s exaggerated lines or Celine’s voluminous leather skirts is the stuff i can’t wait to see on the street! Layers and detail that should be contradiction but instead create something wholly new…  Ok cold weather and bundling up even when i’m inside, get outta here! We got some spring fashions to see!
