I’m so happy that last year’s brocade trend, initiated by Dolce and Gabbana who drew their inspirations from Sicily’s baroque, religious traditions, is still very much present for Spring Summer 2013. Only this time, brocade comes  in light, pastel colours, making the fabric lighter and more wearable for the daytime than darker colours which appear much more opulent.

Berlin fashion Ellen Eiseman is a connoisseur of beautifully cut dresses and rich textures and fabrics.

Wear a simple white shirt under your brocade dress like Alexa Chung and you are good to go for a day in the office.

Pastel coloured floral Valentino Brocade dress Spring / Summer 2013.  Rock it with a leather jacket if you think a cardigan is to prim and proper. Heels, ballet pumps, ankle boots, lace-ups, all go well with this all rounder.

Our favourite fashion icon Marion Cotillard in a floor length floral brocade dress by Erdem. While I love the beautiful fabric, I think the length is too much for this heavy fabric. I love how Marion keeps the character of the outfit playful with a mini wicker cross body bag.
