When we first started collating the fashion trends of spring / summer 2011, the season was way off on the horizon. Now the very 2011 fashion trends that comprise the guide are in full swing, or at least much closer to hitting our wardrobes than they once were. Naturally, as 2011 rolls on, we’ll continue to update fashionisers with new information, and more importantly new inspiration, for spring 2011’s trends and how to wear them. So do check back often, and read on to find out what spring 2011 has in store.
Read on for inspiration for the Spring 2011 season and coming year.

Lingerie as street wear aside, there are four themes that Interfiliere believe will be key to Spring / Summer 2011 fashion trends:
An atmosphere heavily loaded with, memories but reinvented by using, technical innovations. To maintain the feeling of softness and a nostalgia of charm, there are sophisticated constructions, digital prints, placed jacquards, audacious accents, and subtle featherweight effects, silks, fine cottons, blends.
Then there are the refined, luxury lines of coordinates made to last: it’s the triumphant return of the camisole, bodices, teddies: all expressions of an eternal seduction.
Happiness lies in non conformity. It’s not a question of being good or reasonable, but the passion colours evoke, the explosions of prints, geometrical accents, Indian flowers, folk music kitsch, cartoon influences and the naive primitives that all mix create a wild patchwork of fashion.
A liberated celebration of all that everyday life is about. Amusing creativity, beachwear influences, mixes of ethnic and otherworld, ardour and femininity, the whole trend being based on strong lines.
Pleasure gorged on the sun and freshness you’ll want from Spring / Summer 2011.
On the one hand, the exotic: exuberant nature inspired by Gauguin, luxuriant foliage and cat-like beachwear motifs. On the other hand, the desert: a landscape of sand, primitive embroideries, Berber stripes, beautiful laces patinated by the years, ikats and metal accents.
For ample shapes such as caftans or djellabahs, dry knits, charming linens and cottons for the loungerie trend.
The essence of a new luxury, ostentatious and astonishing with a hint of theatrical and urban roughness.
Haute couture meets high-tech. The scene is ostentatious, emphatically astonishing, and unique. In the corridors of this new theatricality surface effects, contrasts of opaque and transparency. Think transfer prints, graphics and bondage accents.
This is the essence of the new luxury, exceptional beauty ready to conquer the land of modernity.
