Peplum Fashion Trend

Ruffles have already been around for spring/summer 2010 but now they come back, not only for this season but also for autumn/winter 2012/13, particularly focusing on the revamp of the pencil skirt - the so-called peplum, flaring elegantly at the waist.

Burberry Prorsum (

My selection of the best looks from the latest catwalk shows includes not only established brands such as Burberry Prorsum but also some surprises.

Christopher Bailey has indeed created one of the most flattering examples of the peplum trend for Burberry Prorsum, you can see yourself walking down the street with one of these skirts, adding movement and sensuality to your day.

Lanvin (

But if you're wondering how to translate this trend for the evening, look no further. Lanvin has done so with his unique mastery over cutting fabric and playing up with volume and body contours.

David Koma (

David Koma, who has dressed celebrities from the music industry such as Beyonce, presented an artistic black and white version for a strong fashion statement.

Thierry Mugler (

Nicola Formichetti, Lady Gaga's stylist and creative director for Thierry Mugler, has also chosen these colours but has produced a more dramatic interpretation of the peplum trend.

Antonio Berardi (

On the other hand, Antonio Berardi focused on the richness of the fabrics, letting texture play a prominent role, these clothes could easily fit in for an evening at the opera or a special dinner.

Ermanno Scervino and Bottega Veneta (

For a splash of colour, Ermanno Scervino has presented a beautiful dark green dress while Bottega Veneta added a bit of sparkle and long leather gloves to a chic purple ensemble.
