2012-2013 Fall / Winter make-up - Purple reign

All about make-up > Fall / winter 2012-2013 > Purple reigns with Yves Rocher

The must-have color at the 2012-2013 fall-winter Fashion Weeks, purple is celebrating a return in shows from top designers. Let’s take a look at this season’s trendiest hue.

A purple rain is drenching the fall-winter 2012-2013 collections. This season’s hot color, purple brightens up winter’s cool beauty.

Much in evidence in the new collections from major design houses, purple may prove to be the new black since, like black, it adapts perfectly to any type of outfit.

At Givenchy, it’s purple’s day out, paired with sequins and silvery sparkles.

At Lanvin, purple gives the working girl a total look by adding color to strict tailored lines, or bringing a cheerier feel to a skirt and sweater.

Prada rocked the color in Milan, while Muiccia took lilac, violet and royal purple and put them to use in strong geometric patterns and encrusted embellishment.

Purple is appearing in many shades: bishop’s violet from Lanvin, amethyst from Givenchy and Lagerfeld, indigo from Balenciaga and lamé from Vanessa Bruno.
