Saks Fifth Avenue Unveils Fall 2012 Trends

An overall mood of Eclectic Elegance emerges for the Fall 2012 season . Eclectic Elegance is about an unexpected mix of luxurious layers, decadent textures, decorative fabrications and opulent embellishments—as seen on the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris. Nature’s richest hues are pronounced throughout, from pine greens to deep ocean blues to vineyard reds. The most notable trends of the season are:

Decorative FabricsWhether for day or night, these fabrics add an incredible degree of richness to the season. They range from brocades with elements of shine to plush velvets to jacquards—either with texture or in geometric patterns.

Masculine/FeminineMenswear gets a feminine touch for fall, with houndstooth checks, herringbones, Glen plaids and pinstripes, providing inspiration for knitwear patterns and print design. Menswear fabrics are cut into ladylike silhouettes, from fitted jackets to sheath dresses and fluid trousers.

Unpredictable LeatherLeather has been used for virtually all categories this season, either in black or in one of the rich, natural hues of the season. From outerwear and jackets to tops, skirts, trousers and dresses, leather appears both all-over and as trims, patches and insets. Look for leather sleeves as a key detail on jackets and coats.

Eclectic OuterwearWe love military-inspired pieces like pea coats, duffle coats and officers’ coats. Elsewhere, outerwear boasts bold pops of color or opulent embellishments. Look for sporty parkas, cozy blanket stripes, plaids, puffy jackets and vests. Fur trim is everywhere, including hemlines, sleeves and collars.

Super StitchesFall’s knitwear shows off dimensional stitching. Look for exaggerated cables and updated fisherman’s knits, as well as lacy and crochet stitches.

The Sleeved Slim DressThis universally flattering look creates a sleek line while covering the arms.

PeplumThis feminine flounce helps accentuate the waist. Look for it on jackets and coats as well as dresses and tops.

Printed PantsWhen was the last time pants were the centerpiece of your look? Animal prints, decadent brocades and artful patterns grab all the attention.

Luxe Structured BagsMinimal meets maximal this fall, as simple structured shapes are embellished to the hilt.

Pointy-Toe PumpsSharpen your look with a pair of these power heels—they can add both an assertive edge and feminine flair.

’80s Excess JewelryMore, more, more! Big jewels, bright color, stacked bangles and brilliant shine recall the decade of decadence.

BEAUTY TRENDS

Saturated Lip ColorLips are far from understated this fall. The palette is deep and rich, and orange-red is ascendant.

Cat EyeThe ’60s staple returns. Eyes are well-defined and fe-lined for a high-contrast evening look.

Fresh FaceFrom cleansing regimes to illuminating foundations, fall’s beauty innovations aim to get your skin looking pure and radiant.
