Remember the spring 2012 shows? If you need a refresher, look no further than Zara‘s spring 2012 collection, which will be rolling into stores shortly (we’re usually thrown off by spring clothes hitting stores in February, but with today’s bizarre 60 degree weather, it’s actually pretty appropriate). We’re not going to call out Zara for knocking off any specific designers, but the spring trends are there: mixed prints (especially bold florals), pastels, high slits, baggy silhouettes and mesh, to name a few.
Saskia de Brauw, who also modeled for the Spanish brand last season, is one of the models who shows off those trends perfectly, sporting wet-looking choppy hair and dewy skin. You may also recognize her from this season’s Chanel, Loewe and Max Mara ads–she’s definitely having a moment.
We were surprised to see such high slits off the runway but we can’t deny their appeal–or how nerve-wracking that dress would be to wear on a windy day. Are you ready to embrace spring’s trends? You better be–New York Fashion Week is a week away and that’s when we’re going to start seeing them IRL. Click through for a peek at Zara Woman and TRF:
