Beyoncé and her mother Tina Knowles relaunched their House of Dereon line last fall with a big runway show at Selfridge’s in London. Full of party dresses, form-fitting pants, and a slew of LBDs, the collection pretty much mimicked Beyoncé’s style. The Spring 2012 lookbook for the brand has been released, and while freakum dresses still factor in heavily, there are also a variety of other wearable silhouettes at play, showing that House of Deréon just may be a brand to watch this season.
We all know colored skinnies and trousers are a big trend for Spring, and those are available in baby blue and coral in both cropped denim and high-waist pleated trouser styles. The season also calls for florals and punchy prints, which make appearances on fluid blouses, form-fitting tube tops, mini skirts, blazer lapels, and floor-sweeping maxi dresses.
Draped jumpsuits and empire waist one-shoulder dresses will definitely pop for Spring because of their functionality for many sizes, shapes, and styles.
B, Ms. Tina and co touch on all the trends here. Even cut-outs and thigh-high slits are worked in the mix.
All in all, this collection is highly wearable and dare I say it? Cute! The pricing hasn’t been released yet and the brand’s online shop is coming soon, but the collection at Selfridge’s retails for approximately $100 – $175.
Will we see Beyoncé rocking these pieces while out and about in the months to come? I certainly hope so. Celebrities like Nicole Richie and Victoria Beckham are constantly seen out and about in their designs which has led to the immense success of their brands. I think Beyoncé has a strong collection here and it would be great to see her mix and match these looks with her high-fashion accessories, don’t you think?
