Angie had scarcely finished writing about camouflage patterns when I stumbled upon the “Creative Camo” post on Style Sight. The traditional khaki and olive camouflage colours are not flattering on me, but I thought the pencil skirt in soft shades of pink quite pretty.
Speaking of a conversational print: Carven designer Guillaume Henri has created a dress that appears to be inspired by fashion magazine collages (look 15). In the meantime Max Mara is mixing animal print with plaid for Spring 2013. Is this something you would wear?
Colourful lifestyle brand marimekko is teaming up with Finnair. One of their Airbus aircraft is sporting the recognizable floral pattern, and passengers will get the full marimekko treatment with a special line of tableware and textiles.

Good design has such a high degree of longevity, Angie points out so rightly. This 1966 coat, these two mod frocks and this fab patterned black and white dress would all fly in 2013 if you updated the footwear, makeup and hair.
