Frosty blooms of pallid Winter Lavender impart a ghostly air to day and eveningwear alike, as a soft demure winter pastel with a cold edge emerges. Statement flannel silhouettes at Comme des Garcons and Balenciaga are reminiscent of 21st Century Trekkie tailoring, while Chanel and McQueen present looks with a refined evening edge.

Whether for day or evening, lavender adds a pastel pop to accessories, such as the clear Perspex heels and hard cases at Chanel, gravity-defying raw edge ruffled heels at McQueen, and mock croc holdalls at Nina Ricci. Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Nina Ricci, Winter 2012-13
Fashion colors follow through increasingly into hair, and Winter Lavender is no exception, as the Trendstop.com style spotters report from the East London street scene. Colored statement wigs were a frequent feature at the fall/winter 2012 runway presentations, with Junya Watanabe opting for cold lavender blue for one of his looks.
LAVENDER FOR MEN
In menswear Winter Lavender works as simple spring fresh tailoring, or as an unexpected pop on creeper sole boots for a softened take on the biker look, as seen at Mugler and Enrico Coveri. 1 & 3 Mugler, 2 Enrico Cover, Winter 2012-13
