Fall Winter 2012 Trends - Brocade

Brocade was one of these trends that I didn't really like when browsing fall collections but as I'm rarely the "love at first sight" type I knew I would come around. And guess what ? I did. I still don't like the total look of brocade and regal embroideries which is simply ridiculous in real-life if you ask me, but pairing brocade trousers or jeans with an oversized sweater or a gold embroided item in a relaxed outfit is just irresistible.

Here are my two favorites. How gorgeous are these velvet brocade patterned JBrand jeans ? Plus, I have no other words than "simply gorgeous" for the gold embroided Miu Miu slippers spotted on Caroline. I think I would even sell my nude Pigalles for a pair of these... (ok, that's not such a challenge as the Pigalles keep on killing my feet every time I wear them and these slippers look as comfortable as a pair of... slippers).

As for my favorite brocade items available in store, here is my selection.




From top left: metallic brocade clutch (asos), black brocade blazer (mango), Marni metallic brocade coat (my theresa), brocade dress (newlook), Stella Mccartney brocade skirt (net-a-porter), Stella Mccartney ballet flats (net-a-porter)


To be honest with, I think that I'm going to skip this trend but I cannot be sure, only time will tell. Having said that, if I had a bottle genie (I've been watching Aladdin lately) I would definitely ask him for Stella Mccartney's skater skirt... How about you girls, are you in for brocade trend this season ? I would love to hear your thoughts !

  1. Je ne suis ni pour ni contre pour cette tendance car comme à chaque saison tout le monde va y trouver son compte.
    Cependant, je rejoins ton point de vue. Je ne suis pas pour un total look. Je trouve que cela fait too much et d'un ridicule... Par contre porter un petit jean J Brand tout en restant habillé intemporel ou casual pour le reste, la je dis oui.

    Et les slippers Miu Miu me font rêver comme son prix... Je n'en reviens pas que des Louboutin te font aussi mal au pied... Why ?!

    Belle soirée, bises.

  2. Currently I'm really into those Miu Miu slippers, but those J Brand jeans are so much more dramatic!
