Globetrotting Fashion Trend Spring 2013 – Luxemi Loves Eclectic Ethnic Prints

If this season’s runways are any indication, we’ve got a year of fashion globetrotting ahead of us. Here are the edgy, Eastern-inspired print and textile looks that have us wanting to pack our bags to take a world fashion tour.

We fell in love when we saw all the brocade on Fall 2012 runways, but we’re digging this new trend even more. For Spring 2013, designers are mixing and matching print and textiles in an eclectic, ethnic way that’s a major nod to Indian fashion. Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs, Marchesa, Tory Burch, Elizabeth & James, Vera Wang are just a few of the designers who have sent layered print and textile looks down the runway for spring.

One of Luxemi’s favorite globetrotting looks is this Altuzarra Spring 2013 runway dress. We love how the designer mixes a blue and yellow textile (which looks like it may be embellished with zari) with a perfectly draped gold and white embellished print. And did we mention the fringe?

We’re also loving the Neeru Kumar-esque vibe of this striped knit skirt in Derek Lam’s Spring 2013 collection. By pairing the skirt with a cutout short-sleeve top in racecar red, Derek Lam gives knit a funky, playful twist for the New Year.

The best thing about the mix and match textile trend is that the options are endless! The zari work, buttas, mirror work, bandhani and traditional weaves we love are all getting a new appreciation in Western runway looks this spring, so if you haven’t already been rocking your print and embellished sarees, now’s the perfect time.

When it comes to imaginative textiles, Neeru Kumar is the first designer who comes to mind. For her mod take on classic Indian textiles, try this Red and Blue Deconstructed Bandhani Saree by Neeru Kumar.

Another easy way to tap the global print trend is by rocking Luxemi’s Brocade Coat with Velvet Border by Kisneel, which is the epitome of fabulous fabric mixing and matching. This stunner is unique from its sweetheart neckline down to its rich double border. And Luxemi’s Cerulean Blue Saree with Gold Sequins and Foil Printed “Club” Pallu Saree by Satya Paul both capture the shimmery print detailing that’s all over the runway in Spring 2013.

Top 2012 Fashion Trends – Neon, Brocade, Burgundy, Florals + Great Gatsby Bling

With a new year of fashion just around the corner, Luxemi has been doing a lot of reminiscing about our favorite fashion trends of the last 12 months. Here are the 2012 trends we couldn’t live without.

Florals

From the moment this trend started blooming, Luxemi was totally enthralled with all things floral. Whether it was Valentino’s flowery romance or Proenza Schouler’s modern, graphic take on floral, we loved seeing how our fave designers put their touch on this staple print.

Memorable moments: Oscar de la Renta’s iconic poppie and daffodil gown and Sonam Kapoor’s Dolce & Gabbana flower and onion dress.

Luxemi’s take: Our Floral Cotton Gota Salwar features gorgeous embroidered flowers that add a soft touch to this Indian shift dress’ stunning magenta hue.

Burgundy

In case you haven’t noticed, burgundy (also called oxblood or wine) is definitely the “it” color for Fall and Winter 2012. With designers like Jason Wu, Zac Posen and Tibi bringing this hue front and center in high-impact runway collections, burgundy has been on every girl’s fashion radar — including ours!

Memorable moments: Jason Wu’s killer burgundy coats, which totally stole the show at New York Fashion Week.

Luxemi’s take: With fine metallic embroidery and a rich red hue, Luxemi’s Scarlett Saree with Rich Gold Border will make you the belle of this season’s burgundy ball.

Neon Everything

Pantone’s Color of the Year was Tangerine Tango, but given the amount of highlighter yellow we spotted on runways, Red Carpets and the streets in our favorite fashion cities, it was definitely the summer of neon.

Memorable moments: Frieda Pinto’s Atelier Versace dress at Cannes Film Festival and Oscar de la Renta’s neon yellow runway creations.

Luxemi’s take: Our Neon Green Cotton and Silk Saree by Neeru Kumar uses its gorgeous highlighter hue, not embellishments, to make a bold statement.

Brocade

We fell in love when we saw designers like Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana work metallic brocade into their runway looks for Fall 2012. It’s an opulent, Indian-inspired touch that made a major splash in both the East and West this year.

Memorable moments: Dolce & Gabbana’s black, crème and gold brocade collection (especially those knee-high brocade boots!).

Luxemi’s take: Our Red and Gold Brocade Salwar showcases brocade at its most beautiful from its elegant scoop neck down to its metallic gold border.

And this Green Brocade Halter Suit with Zari Work and Sequins is an eclectic addition to any girl’s closet.

1920s Jewelry

Even though we’re still holding our breath for the new Great Gatsby flick, we’ve gotten a gorgeous dose of 1920s-inspired bows, headbands and heavy pearl necklaces this year from celebs like Nicole Richie, Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams. This is one trend we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon!

Memorable moments: Michelle Williams’ vintage bow brooch at the 2012 Oscars and Nicole Richie’s deco headband love affair.
