TRANSPARENCY-KEY ITEMS

May 5, 2010

Yesterday I outlined the TRANSPARENCY trend seen on the runways for Fall 2010. Today I give direction on easy items to purchase or manufacture to cover this Fall trend.

With all of the options that are out there, two key items stand out as investments.

THE SHEER BLOUSE and SHEER LEGGINGS/PANTS

Both items were seen from a multiple of Ready to Wear designers and will be translated by many Contemporary designers for the season.  If you are a shopper and want to stay ahead on this trend, I would start looking for these styles on the racks of vintage stores and boutiques.

THE SHEER BLOUSE

Moschino's blouse paired with Western stylings

Yves St Laurent paired the sheer blouse with tailored jackets and maxi-skirts for a seductive take on proper dressing

Givenchy

Valentino's white sheer ruffled version

Requiem's version with bib details

Balmain's Rock n Roll Baroque paired sheer blouses with 70's jackets and flared pants

Balmain's styling of the sheer blouse will be a trend push at Retail for Fall

THE SHEER LEGGING/PANT

Roberto Cavalli's Gypsy Bohemian collection used sheer pants throughout many of the looks

Maison Martin Margiela

Vivienne Westwood showed transparent colorful leggings on the runway. The Junior market will most likely interpret transparency in this way at retail.
