The Return of the Polka Dots

Retro style polka dots made their debut in the high fashion scene some time during the fall of 2011, and the trend has now made its way onto handbags. Reminiscent of something right out of Minnie Mouse’s wardrobe, polka dot prints can bring out the playfulness in anyone’s overall look. The magic in polka dots lies in its variety—the print can come in the style of small grain-like dots, or larger dots mashed together, or slightly contorted ones that give a three-dimensional feel. And the best part of it all, the dots themselves don’t really have to be, well, dots. We’ve seen Marc Jacobs outfits and attires from Natalia Vodianova and Olivia Palermo “dotted” with fine squares and even small hearts. Whatever the pattern, the versatility of polka dots can work for a variety of occasions and yet leave the same chic, playful impression to the eyes of any beholder.

On handbags, we prefer to keep the dots themselves simple to preserve its delicate effect on a small surface area. White is an easy choice for the dots to set against darker backgrounds, and provide just the right contrast. We’ve picked out several new arrivals of the Dasein brand (below) sporting these styles, whether you’re in the hunt for a new satchel, hobo bag, or just a small checkbook.

Those Bright Colors for 2013 Spring & Summer

It is easy to find that bright colors are the theme for this Spring. Let’s take a look at some hot release this year.

Now you may familiar with Andy Warhol collection, But you may not know that a collaboration inspired by French fashion photographer Guy Bourdin will be released soon. The collection, created on behalf of the Guy Bourdin Estate, will feature Bourdin’s innovative and provocative work in a set of unique beauty products. Specific product details have not been released yet, it is for sure that bright colors are the main theme.

 

Bourdin may not be a household name like Andy Warhol, he was a prominent fashion photographer from the 1950s to the 1980s and his work spanned both fashion magazines spreads and advertising campaigns. While his photos were often seen as controversial, he was known for creating fashion photography that told a story and evoked a specific emotion. How Nars will translate this vision into colour cosmetics remains to be seen, but speculation already suggests that the collection could include powerful colours and sensual imagery.

While we fully expected to see a spectrum of bright, bold hues come down the runway, what we didn’t expect was a serious mix of luxurious navy blues, icy grays, and jeweled purples to tag along.

In short, Spring’s vibrant forecast already has us dreaming of ways to style up an outfit that perfectly reflects its rainbow hues. Enjoy!
