Apparently, 'Colour Blocking will be the major trend for SS12'. According to Marina Rinaldi's site, 'a rainbow of colours, chromatic contrasts and unique combinations of shades will overwhelm us making this season even funnier and brighter'. Yep, we're laughing as we type. Anyway, that said, we do actually like the dynamic strength of this scheme as the monochromatic tones do create a powerful image. We could do without the marketing malarkey however although we are following her instructions and working on becoming 'the woman who adores playing with contrasts which become distinguishing traits of her personality'. Heheheheheh, you really couldn't make this stuff up, eh?
