ACCESSORIES REPORT: Tangerine and Metallic Shoes

This spring/summer 2012 promises to be a bright season indeed as two of the hottest incoming trends include tangerine and metallic shoe details.

According to Pantone, the leader of color communication, “Tangerine Tango” has been chosen as the color of the year for 2012. They have described it as a “spirited reddish orange, which provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.”  Since 2011, tangerine has been lurking through fashion week collections not only in heels but in clothing as well. Collections that have sported the tangerine trend for spring/summer 2011 in both categories include Blumarine, Cacharel, and Sportmaxx. Metallic shoe details are another exciting trend for 2012 which gives any shoe a tougher punch. Metal toe caps to be exact have been seen on major brands like Louis Vuitton, Mugler, and Yves Saint Laurent.

This week’s Fashionista definitely knows what’s in store this year as her peep-toes showcase the tangy color and gold metal heels. Along with her trendy shoes she is wearing a tribal patterned skirt, a graphic t-shirt, a bejeweled necklace, and beaded bracelets. There’s no doubt she’s ready for the bright season ahead!

Spotted: During Philippine Fashion Week for spring/summer 2012, Parisian, one of the biggest shoe brands in the Philippines, showcased their new collection not only with bright colors, but silver metallic details. Whether it is seen with bright yellow wedges or black pumps, the metallic element gave each shoe a more striking look.
