So Elleuk.com have launched a competition to find their next intern. They are offering a 6 month…. PAID…. internship. Oooph. So, along with 100s of other girls, I entered, and here is my entry on SS11 trends:
If last season saw us drinking hot chocolate in front of the fire, then this season sees us hopping atop a Harley Davidson, brandishing a multi-coloured Mohican. Rebellion pervades the catwalk this summer, like a v-sign to last season’s muted tones, restrictive knits and lack of skin. Veteran rebel Christopher Kane has upped his ante for 2011, giving royal fashion a perverse make-over with acid green skirts paired with argyle twinsets. Even notoriously serene designers have been seduced by colour. Prada seeks to galvanize our senses with a cacophony of tropical prints and block colour, and Fendi too, who once heralded the nude and pales trend, has had some intensity injected into its colour palette, with flashes of tangerine and aqua. But if colour becomes too saccharine, we can turn to Givenchy, who serves up gothic decadence with a hint of leopard, to shake things up, and Balenciaga who reactivates androgynous chic, with boyish blazers and biker jackets. Lanvin amplifies the romance trend of previous summers, with an acutely feminine collection; his gliding layers of fluid silk and plunging necklines exude glamour. Overall, it’s another tantalizing sartorial season, full of energy and zest.
