With the Spring -Summer 2009 ready to wear shows in Milan and Paris over, here is a look at some of the trends for the upcoming season. Some we are happy to see .... some we hope stay on the runway.
Too-cool-for the room designers like Hussein Chalayan to Miuccia Prada who is at the forefront of the trend curve have echoed bare midriff looks as a must for Spring 2009.
So its time to wrap up and hit the gym ... In keeping with body exposure, ripped jeans and torn denim also had a strong showing on the Spring 2009 runways. We loved the ripped denim look at Balmain. (pictured in shoulder looks)
The statement necklace a big trend in New York for Spring 2009 was also big in Milan and Paris. Emporio Armani, Lanvin , Iceberg and Marni had this as a key must have.
One-Shouldered Tops, Dresses & Bikinis were everywhere this season . A huge part of Versace Spring 2009.
Natalie Massenet on style.com calls Jumpsuits the "look of the day" . Bottega Veneta , Dolce & Gabbana and Ann Valerie Hash all had jumpsuits on the runway.
Skeleton looks were big at Alexander Mcqueen, Maison Martin Margiela and Givenchy
