Among the print trends from the Spring 2012 runway shows, the use of ombre´ colors, or gradients, was one of my favorites. There were far too many to picture below, so I focused on a few examples that I thought were especially innovative. It’s great to see how designers are utilizing this colorful technique in such diverse ways, too, ranging from subtle and simple (Saunders, Wauchob) to bold and complex (Etro). A little something for everyone.
