third in the ” Fabulous Fall 2012 Fashion Trends” series
Imagine piles of crisp leaves, the smooth red skins on apples, and the soft, thick coats on furry little animals as they bundle up for the cold of winter. Imagine, if you will, the textures of fall. In the spirit of art imitating life, the fabrics for Fall 2012 find their inspiration in the multitude of textures found in nature- crisp brocades, smooth leathers, and thick, soft velvets. Garments in the usual fall colors of brown, black, and orange, joined by the “outside the Fall box” shades of pink, blue and winter white, become richer when fashioned from bold brocades, luxe leathers, and voluptuous velvets.

CLASSIC FALL FASHION FINDS
The Timeless World of Brocade
There is something warm and reassuring about brocade … it lets us move forward while keeping us firmly grounded in the past.

The Edgy World of Leather
Even the most classic wardrobe has room for a bit of leather. Team it with a fine sweater or a cashmere twinset and the result is edgy, yet timeless.
The Elegant World of Velvet
Velvet — the perfect way to say “elegant” this fall.
