A new trend is budding this season that suggests designers are seeing things through rose colored glasses. The soft romantic hue- toughened up and became a more muted tone for the fall season. It is a change from the neon inspired 80's colors that have also made a recent come back. Victor & Rolf and 3.1 Phillip Lim contrasted the dusty mauve and rose shades with more masculine cuts to create sexy and tailored power suits. Christian Dior, Lanvin, Bottega Veneta went more feminine and draped models in flowing gowns and ruffled dresses. Ralph Lauren and Dries Van Noten used the rose color scheme for every day wear. A rose is a symbol of many positive images and that might be what people need to get out of the dreary mode the world can be absorbed in. Makeup colors also mimic the look.
