Fashion goes romantic

Love is in the air... or at least it was on the Spring 2011 catwalks. Romanticism is the way to go this spring/summer, as this was the style repeatedly shown on runways across the globe in the form of white adorable outfits with lace and crochet details.

Fantasies, dreams and gardens were common denominators among designers as they explained their collections. Each interpretation was interesting to see, as a subject like this one could become very boring, but this is fashion, and there was plenty to choose from. Max Azria went on a very simple path, with structural and plain designs (á la Calvin Klein), while Peter Dundas continued to perform very sexy pieces, showing a lot of skin through crochet-made dresses on Emilio Pucci's catwalk.

Carefree hairdos (ponytails, waivy and knots) and barely no make up completed the styling.

And not only the clothes were romantic, the soundtracks of the shows accompanied the feeling. From Dolce & Gabbana's Muse tribute (with the songs from The Twilight Saga) to the violins of the most recognized classical composers,it was impossible not to feel the romantic vibe.

Dolce & Gabbana | Chloé (

This trend has rapidly move from the runway and taken over magazines, showing angelical creatures (aka models) wearing angel-worthy clothes, in scenaries like gardens or classical buildings. So it is simply a matter of time before this trend hits the streets, but will it be as popular among commons as it was on the runway?
