The colour palette included muted tones with signature colours of mint green and coral along with wide black and white stripes. Romantic overtones were evident with ruffles, pleats and luxurious embossed fabrics.
2011 trends have centred around the 50s and 70s but judging by Paul Costelloe's show 2012 is all about the swinging sixties. Skirts and dresses are getting shorter and necklines are rising - no plunging cleavage here!
Costelloe seems to really understand the curves and shape of a woman's body and it is evident in the flattering cut of the pieces in the collection.
If this is what we can expect for next season, roll on Spring 2012!
