CC’s master cheat sheet of Fall and Winter 2012 trends are posted for your perusal. They’re the result of many, many weeks of study (from fashion weeks around the world)—and a few trips to our favorite children’s markets to check out the latest offerings from our favorite brands. Consider them inspiration!
Inspired by the classic silhouettes of Chanel (dropped waists, strong-shouldered jackets, and trim skirts) and an overall Parisian sensibility, this trend (which comes to us this season via Prada’s breathtaking Fall collection) makes its way into childrenswear through retro silhouettes, vintage patterns, neutrals and demure florals. For your petit, channel the vibe with nostalgic tweed coats, cap-toe shoes, and forties-era chapeaux. Gloves not required!
