One of spring’s hottest upcoming trends is tie-dye or ombre dye denim. UK-based denim expert Donna Ida weighs in: ”To me tie dye is all about a relaxed, fun, hippy vibe and this season the colours are so super vibrant as seen on the catwalks of Charlotte Ronson and Etro. Get beach chic with tie dye shorts and casual tees.”
Get the look! Siwy Denim Camilla Shorts in Mixed Signals ($308.20) – buy it at Donna Ida.

In case you missed this wow-factor on the runway during the spring 2012 fashion week season, Manish Arora mixed in some vivid denim jeans with their avant-garde sportswear. Neon ombre, screen printed expressions of passion, and swirling psychedelic designs were just some of the elements involved. Of the eight original runway show designs, fifteen more were developed for a capsule collection release. Maurice Oyahon, founder of Notify says to Sportswear International, “We admire the work of Manish and his incredible know-how regarding colors and decoration.”
Expect to pay between $620 and $1,080 for a pair of these beauties. They’ll be available at Colette and L’Eclaireur, as well as Manish Arora’s e-shop. Hopefully at that price, they’ll fit better than the samples we saw on the runway.
