✿ Roberto Piqueras: Winter 12/13 ✿

Hello :-)

If you have a Tumblr, you've probably already seen Roberto Piqueras' designs splattered all over your dashboard. His colourful and bright designs were inspired by the Queen of England, and also brought about a 'nu-rave' trend. The fashion show took place in a council estate and led up to a main road in London, giving a large contrast between the surroundings and the models clothes.

Above you can see the top inspired by the Queen. The diamonds over her eyes make it look very interesting and also link with the upcoming jubilee. The chips at the bottom also go with the English culture, since we all love fish and chips so much. As you can tell, the prints are very digital and colourful, which seems quite inspired by a lot of 'net-art' on Tumblr (sorry for referring to Tumblr so often, but a lot of the designs are pretty relatable).

The models, apparently, were all found on, again, Tumblr. This shows you the power of the internet nowadays; a whole fashion show can easily be organised on it, no matter what platform, be it Tumblr or Facebook. A lot of the designs are very 'new-age' and out there, but I really hope that everyday high street fashion starts to move in this direction. I personally LOVE this collection so much, and I can't wait until I can possibly buy some of it (even though I'll need to save up forever).

Another part of this collection is the facial decoration! Piqueras designed a bunch of temporary tattoos shaped like gems and crystals. They're very bright, and I actually want to buy some myself! They're a really good decoration as they also go with the clothes extremely well and add to the 'nu-rave' effect. You can purchase the temporary tattoos on Piqueras' website here.
