RUNWAY FASHION TREND: The L.P.D. Is the New L.W.D. The month-long runway season from the majors (New York, London, Milan, Paris) for Spring 2012 has just begun and right out of the box it looks as if Pantone’s panel of experts nailed at least one of the big color trends correctly. At the beginning of the year, Hall Five reported that they were betting on 18-2120 Honeysuckle, a shade of hot pink.
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.
Is what they had to say about it.

For fall, designers replaced the little black dress with little white ones, but next spring calls for brighter hues. Behold, the little pink dress. But lest you think this translates to frilly and fussy, think again: Today’s LPD is sexy and youthful. Jenni Kayne added thigh-baring slits to a sleek sheath, Cushnie et Ochs dreamed up a pleasingly askew halter, and Kevork Kiledjian emblazoned a snakeskin print onto a body-conscious minidress.
