Desirable trends littered 2012’s lush, slightly oddball fashion-scape. There was Cadillac kitsch at Prada, snarling tiger reliefs at Kenzo, baroque flourishes blooming across the catwalks, and Japonisme flexing its draped, steely jaw. We also saw a bigger shift this year than in the previous five combined, with designers entering and exiting each other’s houses like it was a bona fide block party (snag up that Ghesquière Balenciaga or Pilati Yves Saint Laurent while you still can). Here, ARTINFO runs down the standout sartorial moments of 2012 (stay tuned for our predictions for 2013 later this week) — “out with the old and in with the new” has never felt more apt than now.
