Colorblock Just Won't Quit: The Persistent Trend Popped Up On London Runways
September 27, 2012
Just when you thought you had to stow away your favorite colorblock dress, the designers at London Fashion Week confirmed that this incredibly persistent trend (first spotted for spring 2011) will still be in 2 years later. For spring 2013, Paul Smith mismatched colors and patterns on tea-length dresses, while Jonathan Saunders did the same thing with his line, but made the bottom half sheer (another LFW trend). Moschino Cheap and Chic took dress lengths well above the knee, and in eye-catching neon tones. Preen played with separates, adding different colors to certain parts of tops and skirts for an accentuated effect. The takeaway: no matter how you prefer your colorblock, it’s here to stay.
