The Autumn/Winter 2011 men’s Canali Collection is a “tribute to the typical Italian sense of elegance which plays down tradition and approaches tailor-made clothes with a playful sense of self-assurance.” Oversized lapels, cigarette leg trousers, military style silhouettes and velvet/cashmere fabrics in rich, fall “retro” colors sets this collection ahead of the rest. This collection caters to many tastes from casual, playful styles to more evening appropriate ensembles.
At the most recent couture bridal market in NYC a few weeks back, the overall trend floating through the air was “romance.” Many designers found inspiration through the upcoming royal wedding and almost everyone had their “Kate Middleton” gown. This stunning gown below came from the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012 collection and is Monique’s interpretation of what Kate Middleton would wear if she was asked to design her gown.

This look is regal yet fashion forward for the young trendsetting bride-to-be.
