Fall 2012 Trends by Nordstrom

Nordstrom have released their impressive style guide for Fall 2012, citing the most significant runway and designer trends. The 'Portraits of Style' Fall 2012 Lookbook compacts everything we need to know about this season's fashion fads, gracefully displayed by some of the biggest names on the modeling scene. This elegantly shot campaign gives us a comprehensive idea on what colours, silhouettes, prints and shapes to wear this Fall.

The oversized coat. This season, winter coats are larger than life and cut on a bias with a rounded shape, keeping details to a minimal. Jeneil Williams wears a radiant crimson red over-the-knee Jil Sander collarless coat. Denmark's Gertrud Hegelund displays chic modernism in an ultramarine blue Celine coat. 

Sombre Vs Sheer. A shadowy gothic theme prevails this fall with heavier all black ensembles, as seen on Meghan Collison's opaque leather look by Givenchy. Opposing this dark force are sheer panels and daring cut-outs, modeled by Ondria Hardin for Emilio Pucci.

Leather and Lace. Valentino combines two of Fall's major trends - the little red dress and decorative cutwork. Ruby Aldrige wears a beautiful red long-sleeved laser-cut leather dress with high-neck. Erdem uses sheer lace with a bright coloured underlay in this lingerie inspired look worn by Argentinian model Tati Cotliar. 

Masculine Mode. We have not yet escaped the menswear trend this Fall, in fact, it has only become more prominent. Chunky knits, stripes and plaid and tailored trousers with a hint of military design. From left: Brazil's Aline Weber in Junya Watanabe, Julia Nobis is sleek in Christopher Kane and Kori Richardson in a sophisticated look by Haider Ackermann.

Velvet Days and Burgundy Nights. Gucci gives us the luxurious feel of velvet in a navy blue animal print dress, seen on Hailey Clauson. The burgundy colour trend has already caught on like wildfire, Hind Sahli wears a specked bordeaux dress by Jason Wu.

Two Toned Glamour. Two very different ways of wearing duotone - Anouk Lepére makes a striking appearance in a black and white Lanvin mini, swirled with voluminous ruffles and accented with red hot heels and gloves. Stella McCartney takes a more streamlined, sports luxe approach to winter dressing in this sexy urbane gown worn by Kate King.


The Patterned Power Suit. Pack away that plain black suit, prints and patterns are the order of the day, with abstract art and bold graphics painted upon masculine tailored jackets and trousers. Dries van Noten gets creative with bold patches of eastern inspired art, modeled by Hanne Gaby Odeile. Anais Mali dons a fully printed square geometric suit by Prada.

Textured. Chanel updates tweed and jeans in charcoal grey with a tinge of metallic for 2012. Romanian model Diana Dondoe wears a three piece look from the collection. Dominican dame Marihenny Rivera displays cozy fur couture in a cloud of white by Alexander McQueen.

Innovative shapes and prints. Mary Katrantzou brings forth futuristic structures in inventive digital prints, as seen on Jay Shin. Proenza Schouler redefines Oriental print and costume design, giving it a more modern appeal, as worn by Magda Laguinge.

Each of these outfits and accessories are available for purchase at Nordstrom. 

Which of these trends are you inspired to try out this Fall?

I chose my favorite items, of course! The Celine coat - fabulous! Then the Oscar de la Renta dress and the Gucci dress, fabulous! I would wear these items without a second thought! And would feel so myself! Wish I had the Gucci dress to wear in the UK! Well, getting my handluggage ready for my trip... I have to be very careful with what I take, I decided not to take any suitcase, apart from handluggage... I have loads of things there, that I even don't have the chance to wear, so... saving time on luggage claiming!

Excellent suggestions whenever I visit your blog.

Xixia said...

Sam, you have such a great eye when it comes to seeing trends in fashion lines. A lot of times, I tend to blur it all together, so it is so nice to see posts like this that sorts them and injects a bit of order into what I thought was just a conglomeration of different clothes. :)
I'm a huge fan of the two-toned glamour. Anything color blocked / two-toned is just so classy.
