I decided to trawl my tumblr for all my favourites of 2012. And looking back there are a few themes that have consistenly popped up in my picture bank…
BEST OF HATS //
My love affair with head wear continued into well 2012, but my favourite hat to grace the heads of the fashion pack was undoubtedly the veiled beanie created by milliner Stephen Jones for Jil Sander’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
BEST OF PINK //
If you were to ask me if i’m a fan of pink, the answer would be “no”. But, when reviewing my archives there’s no doubt the colour was all over the place like a rash. I’ll have to put some pretty in my wardrobe for 2013.
BEST OF ASIA //
Anyone who knows me, knows I have a mad love affair with anything from the east. From Susie’s Kimono streetstyle to Proenza Schouler’s samurai bomber jackets, Miu Miu’s geisha inspired ad campaign and Jessa from Girls top knots and flowing florals, 2012 was jam-packed with Asian inspiration.
BEST OF VINTAGE ROMANCE //
Nothing beats an old-school romance in black and white.
BEST OF PRADA //
Miuccia, my hero. For me, Prada is like the Dr Seuss of fashion. It’s exciting, surprising, inspiring and always has a sense of humour.
BEST OF DENIM //
Whether it was a texan tuxedo, dungarees or jeans slashed to the max, denim proved (as it does every single year) that it’s not going anywhere. anytime. ever.
BEST OF HAIR //
Short. Cropped. Blunt. My favourite hairstyles from 2012 epitomised effortless cool. Chop! Chop!
See you in 2013.
