The peplum top

Peplums was probably one of the most consistent trends in Spring/Summer 2012 runway shows, a majority of designers featured at least one peplum top, dress, skirt or jacket.
From top left: lace (asos), leather (H&M), white (zara), knitted (ACNE at Liberty),

My favorite peplum top is the leather version from H&M. In fact, peplum was not a trend that appealed to me in the beginning and I was honestly thinking of skipping it until I saw this leather top… I love the combination of the edgy leather with the romantic and girly silhouette of the design. The problem is that I'm not sure I will be able to get a hold of it. This is one of those great H&M designs which are only available in some shops and immediately sold out. H&M Belgium just confirmed to me that this top will only be available in Belgium in one shop Antwerp (damn you fashion capital !), and with my full-time job and my 100% kids weekends I will probably not manage to go there anytime soon. And as H&M online shopping is still not available in Belgium I don't have high hopes of getting this top...
Enough about me, how about you, are you falling for the peplum top ? What is your favorite ?

Happy weekend - Bon weekend ! xx

ps: If you manage to find the H&M top in a shop or online and you are so kind to get one for me I promise I will love you forever ♥♥
pps: And of course, I will pay you back too...

EDIT 7/05/2012: Thanks to Caroline (who will love forever) I did manage to get my hands on the leather peplum top, check it out here.

  1. Peplum voulant dire "tunique", je ne vois pas trop pq on a baptisé ce genre de top comme ça. Peut-être parce qu'il fait penser à une armure grecque ... Mais je n'aime pas trop ce type de top à basques. Maintenant, je sais qu'il ne faut jamais dire "jamais".

  2. Je n aimais pas non plus mais depuis que j ai vu la version en cuir j ai changé d avis ... Merci pour ton commentaire et bonne semaine ! xx

  3. Coucou Marta,
    J'ai toujours adoré les péplums sans connaître leur nom! (merci donc de me sortir de mon ignorance :-)). Je suis droite et ça me permet de donner l'illusion d'avoir de jolie hanche. Sur une jupe portefeuille, je trouve ça super.
    Je suis trop sage pour la version en cuir...mais j'adore celle de ZARA! Et crois-moi, je mettrai la main dessus!!
    j'adore ce genre de posts! Si pointu. Merci :-)


  4. Coucou Yeba !! Merci pour ton commentaire :) je pense aussi que ce top peut mettre en valeur un silhouette droite, la version zara est sans risques ! Il faut que tu me montres ça !! xx
