With the release of the brand’s new season lookbook, what instantly comes to mind is the hottest trend that we at OnoBello.com forecast for Spring/Summer 2012- “Bright Colours”.

It’s a well know fact that fashion embraces a lot things- looking good, hot and chic, what’s in and what’s out, what’s old and what’s new. How to wear what and what not to wear and also how to avoid those dreadful fashion crimes. With all these in tow one important factor is the colors translate your style and bring out your best features.

Autumn/Winter 2011 trends are gradually fading away and the fashion world or ‘creatives’ as some people are beginning to term us as, made up of journalists, stylist, photographers, models and even celebrities are already forecasting what trends are going to be big this Spring/Summer 2012 from top designers all over the world. We recently saw all the beautiful clothes from the recently concluded Cape Town Fashion Week last July and still have our eyes on the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks this September where most of our favourite designers will be parading their new season collections and can’t wait to see the trends they all will be championing.

This lookbook from Duchess says it all for us- the colours and shapes are fun, girly and flirty. It simply shows that fashion lovers are going to run wild with the trend and make them suit their individual styles. We are not saying you should all abandon the trends from previous seasons or discard the old pieces in your wardrobe, as you already know, true style comes with combining old and new.

For us right here, our forecast for spring/summer 2012 is that brights are still going to be big. It’s summer in most parts of the world and Nigeria is always in summer come rain, sun or harmattan if you know what I mean. Indulge yourself in some colorful experience this season. Be girly and beautiful, have fun and whatever you do, don’t forget to pop into one the Duchess stores, it’s worth it!
