Pret Reporteur. Spring 2008 Trends from Paris

There is nothing quite like Paris in the spring: the blooming
flowers in the Jardins du Luxembourg, the picnics in the Champs de
Mars, the people watching in St. Germain. But best of all, Parisians put away their banal black wardrobes until the fall!
Come April we are all ready for a fresh start, particularly in our
closets. Here are the latest crazes I’ve found in Paris for spring 2008…

White is the New Cobalt
Last spring the ‘it’ color was cobalt, this season it is definitely white
(and any of its variations). Sick of neon brights? It’s a bit passé
here in Paris. Forget bold colors for awhile and return to a look that
is simple and fresh for the spring.

To Dye For
I don’t know about you, but I think tie-dye is pretty cool
— especially when done on high fashion items (a.k.a. not done in your
back yard with a plastic bucket and rubber gloves). This look is
laid-back yet bold, and hardly needs accessorizing. Look for one key
tie-dye piece to add to your wardrobe this spring.
