Kiki accompanied buyer, Jamila, to the Intermezzo Trade Show in NYC yesterday.

Together, we scoped out spring/summer 2010 trends in the contemporary women's market .

BLANK, a hit denim brand on, is bringing the heat this summer with edgy studded, tie dye, patchwork denim and more.


Christian Audigier

Christian Audigier has recently taken a cleaner turn, ditching some of its infamous bright colored tattoo prints for more vintage looks.

Do you think it's about time, or should this brand just stick to doing what it's so well known for?

Overall, we saw that stud details on clothing and accessories are not going anywhere anytime soon. Other popular hardware will be chains, spikes and various jewels.

The rock star look was very evident, but softened up in many cases with a vintage twist.

Soft pastel colors were seen, such as peach, greens and blues. Neutral tones were also prevalent, especially in fetish or lingerie inspired clothing.

Trendsetters Lady Gaga and Rihanna

We noticed luxurious fabrics like silk, satin, and chiffon, as well as leather and spandex.

Heavy metal is still a go, with metallic shades of silver, gold, emerald green, purple, etc.

One of my personal favorites is sheer fabric pieces on dresses and tops. It's super sexy without revealing too much and adds an elegant look.

How are you feeling about this upcoming season's fashion trends?

See more fresh looks on from brands like BLANK, Christian Audigier, Pour La Victoire, Betsey Johnson and many more!
