-- Daring colors and intricate silhouettes dominate Mercedes Benz Fashion Week swimwear collection for 2012.
Established designers and trendsetters have pointed out five major color schemes for spring and summer wear this year. These include cobalt, aqua, sunset orange, citrus green, coral and fuchsia. Keeping true to the color preferences for the Year of the Dragon – which are blue, green and yellow – the first six months is undoubtedly a bolder, brighter interpretation of the recommendations. On top of that, style icons have also embraced the use of pattern for swimsuits. Ethnic and tribal outlines will be evident in a lot of designer collections. On top of that, handcrafted fabrics like crochet and macramé as well as embroidery techniques will be prevalent. And making a comeback from the previous year, animal prints (particularly the leopard, zebra, croc and python) will also take part in the trend, with a more traditional appearance and accompanying solid trim.
The bikini and other two-piece suits will also reign supreme this summer of 2012. But the one-piece monokini and tankini will still remain relevant along with other structured swimwear such as bandeaus and one shouldered tops. A lot of intricate details will also be seen on this year’s suits, with the incorporation of ruches, sequins, ruffles, metal rings and multiples strips of fabric.
Rosemary Wang, a fashion stylist, confirms that the same colors will apply for men’s summer collection. However, their beach looks will mostly be retro, with a lot of color blocking in men’s swimming trunks, as well as patterned, with the use geometric, tribal and checkered printed fabrics. There will also be a noticeable variety in the length and cut of men’s shorts. And they may just get away with really small, form-fitting silhouettes this year.
Despite these fads though, Wang asserts that men and women should choose the spring and summer ensembles they wear according to preference. It’s one thing to stay in style. And it is another to be comfortable with what you have on. Ultimately, the clothes will not matter if you do not have the attitude to match. So if you are shopping for a tankini, a pair shorts or beach cover-ups, lean towards those that express who you are as a person and not what other people tell you to put on.
