Spring/Summer 2012. New York, London, Milano, Paris. Hundreds of shows, thousands of desirable clothes.
But what exactly is next season gonna be about?
This is my personal selection of 6 trends I think -and hope- we’re gonna wear next summer:
1. Wear More than One Hat
2. Dare Stripes
10 Crosby Derek Lam
3. Study new Geometries
4. Get on the Fringes
5. Play with Prints!
Dolce & Gabbana
Dries Van Noten
Yves Saint Laurent
6. Swim in deep waters
What do you hope to wear?
This is like a western 2.0 should look like! Take away the ugly hats and boots but keep the leather embroideries and move them to the pants. Keep the fringes as well, the belts and the light blue color of denim – but throw away the fabric – and add lots of gold.
There you go! Who else if not Balmain could make the Far West look so punky, so 80s and nevertheless so up-to date?

I think that for now this is the best show of the season!
Well done Olivier Rousteing!
