Fancy Some Fruit Salad?
A Tutti Frutti Fashion Trend
Brighten up your wardrobe with colourful fruity looks inspired by the Spring / Summer 2011 collections.
Between Prada, Stella McCartney and Moschino Cheap & Chic, designers were feeling for a Summer health kick. There were Banana prints on the Prada runway, while Miuccia Prada herself wore banana earrings backstage. Of her colourful collection, Miuccia Prada said: “I’m tired of minimalism.”
Meanwhile, at Stella McCartney, models looked fresh, vibrant and citrusy in luscious lemon and orange prints. At Moschino Cheap & Chic, a divine lemon print 50’s inspired skirt teamed with a matching top and waisted belt, made my heart stop! So divine! Other fruits that took to the runway included; apples at Miu Miu and cherries at Anna Sui, while at Blumarine models carried lemon handbags.
However, dressing in fruit can be daring. If you would prefer to ‘taste test’ this fruity trend, check out Charlotte Olympia’s banana clutch bag or mixed fruit platform heels (pictured right). The striking heels are decorated with interlaced pineapples, bananas, strawberries and watermelons. It is the perfect way to incorporate the trend into your everyday style with effortless flair. Of her pieces, Charlotte Dellal, the designer behind the Charlotte Olympia label, says; “They are tongue in cheek but wearable, I like accessories which have a sense of humour.”
So be daring in citrus! Make a colourful, fresh statement. You can now eat your fruit and wear it too! xx
