SCANDINAVIAN AUTUMN - The reds of the Scandinavian autumn trade places with the neutral shades of grey and brown and find their place on floral patterns of various sizes for dresses, skirts and blouses. The season’s must-haves are the coats in woollen cloth or tricot, the trench coats in real goose down and the thick wool jumpers reminiscent of hand-knitted types. The graphics are inspired by the genteel “teatime” atmospheres.
CENTRAL PARK - The leafy heart of New York reminds us of an urban look which comes from the skilful mixing of classics and casuals. The double-breasted pea coats and hooded sweatshirts, the inlays and jacquard patterns on wools with varying degrees of fineness and the chino pants are obvious examples of this. A retro style opens out onto graphics for the t-shirts or the choice of ankle boots in real leather. Dark blue and beige, coordinated with wood green, maroon and grey marl, make up the palette.
One of the fashion trends for Autumn-Winter 2011/2012 are clothes with contrast sleeves. The color of the sleeves can be soft and overflowing or bold and completely contrasting. The sleeves can also be made from a different fabric.
Contrast sleeves are popular not only for shirts and blouses, but also for dresses, jackets and coats. This fashion trend is introduced in the models of Burberry, Zara, CLU, Viktor & Rolf, Versace, Daphne.

For the next year the check will be trendy again in Autumn-Winter 2011/2012. The check pattern can be combined with both classical and with extravagant accessories.
Checkered shirts, skirts, jackets, bags and shoes can be seen in the collections of many world designers and fashion houses. We leave to you the choice in which one element of your outfit can bet on it.
I'M NOT A SOLDIER! - Women and men lined up in a vaguely military style highlights the skill of knowing how to mix pieces of clothing which define a character, a personality, a woman, a man. The softer silhouette used for her contrasts with the closer-fitting lines he wears. Chunky-stitch knits team with parkas and long and short jackets for him and her. Grey-green, brown and milky-white are the main colours.
NEW YORKER - Dedicated to those who shun exaggeration and have an innate sense of style and originality. This classic look – brightened with unexpected details like the vibrant colour of knitwear or the suit/trousers outfits’ penchant for pronounced patterns – radically transforms his and her approach to town wear. The comfortable fit allows a use of different fabrics. Camel, grey and dark blue create a colour base illuminated with the lacquer red, sunny yellow and electric blue exclusive to the unisex-look knitted sweaters.
D&G presented its Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection during the menswear fashion week in Milan. In the collection seems to dominate the spirit of Pop – candy pink, mint green and citrus bight yellow with logos of Coca Cola advertising and Mickey Mouse cartoons.
The models were wearing slim trousers, short or bomber jackets, basketball sneakers all in bright, cheery colors.
This season’s Versace collection for men presents an optical game of shapes, proportions, colours and graphics, conducted with a knowing and contemporary nod.
This is not, however, a look that sparkles and shines. Instead the luxurious aspect of the collection – such a hallmark of the Versace brand – comes from the fine fabrics used and the expert tailoring employed.
The foundation of the collection comprises highly sartorial elements, with garments that have a new volume and are less rigid and softer than previously.
