Matches Fashion: A/W 2012 Trend

What I love and hate about this trend:

  • (+) It's a chance to push the envelope from what we know
  • (+) There's lots of leather!
  • (-) Can't be fully embraced by most folks given their everyday work
  • (-) It requires a full closet redux to do properly

Designers/brands you'll see run with this trend are likely Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Dannijo, and Isabel Marant Etoile.
