Eastern Asian Fashion Trend | Fall 2012

These Pieces Make It Easy to Channel the Far East (No Travel Required)

View in slideshow

Rich brocades and embroidery, architectural, minimalist cuts, and mandarin collars all pointed to something beautifully Asian-inspired on the Fall '12 runways. Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, Rag & Bone, and more all offered up trips to the Far East that don't require a plane ticket, just a little styling whimsy. Whether with more literal nods to their Eastern influences in kimono-style silhouettes and bold prints from the likes of Dries Van Noten, or in tributes paid more subtly with Rag & Bone's wrap-style skirts and dresses, these collections offer a pretty brilliant jumping-off point. Now we're seeking out the same ornate jacquard, beautiful blossom prints, and sleek mandarin-collared dresses and jackets to channel Fall's homage to Asia.
