Another trend here for ya. Now spring wouldn’t be spring without colour and liveliness, so it might seem obvious to have colour on the catwalk, but this is suttin else. Lots of orange and hot pink especially at Giambattista Valli and and Aquilano.Rimondi, the shiny orange and yellow blazers are amazing. There’s more of a beachy vibe at Christian Dior, typical summery prints and flowy dresses don’t seem too earth shattering. Jil Sander and MaxMara both went for block colour, which looks particularly good on the 4th picture down at Jil Sander, the black makes the colours pop like nothing else. The Rachel Roy collection was pretty mixed, quite a few nude and metallic looks, but the favourite has got to be the aqua/turquoise gown at the bottom of the post, pretty hot.
This trend is probably one of the most doable this season, so there isn’t an excuse. I guarantee you have something in your wardrobe worth pulling out this spring, but if all else fails, you can always go shopping…
Perhaps thanks to the current global obsession with all things vampire-ish, the cape is the coolest coat to be wearing this season. But think plain – the shape of the coat speaks for itself and a pattern will kill the look. And don’t let yourself throw a cape over baggy trousers – harems or otherwise. Skinnies or minis, please, to avoid looking like a bag lady. Or a bin lady. Or even a bin bag lady.

Here at MOtrend we’re feeling all autumnal. You can forget about wearing waterproof mascara to prevent the pool-side-panda look and finally relax about de-hairing, well, everywhere…because Summer is so last season! Bring on the thick furry jackets, the leather gloves and – aaah – the (many pairs of) Winter boots.
We’re going to do an A/W10 Trend mini-series, starting with the oh-so-fashiony coat of this season, the cape. We’ll be covering all your fashion bases in the next few posts so stay tuned…
So far we’ve covered:
Whether it’s suede or sheepskin, buckled or laced, chunky boots are going to be big next season. Let’s go kick some ass, girls, because these boots were made for wearing:

Y-3 is known for its comfortable clothes which combine sport and fashion flawlessly… especially relevant given this summer’s global obsession with football and (much more importantly!) this year’s ‘let’s get physical’ trend. Legendary footballer Zinedine Zidane is a massive fan of Y-3, and is the face of the 2010 Y-3 campaign.
Here’s Zinedine and a group of models looking beautiful Y-3 (whilst staring intently at a flag) in Y-3’s S/S campaign film – the eight models represent the football federations of South Africa, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Argentina, France, and Russia, by the way.
