We talked to celebrity stylist Simone Harouche (who has styled both Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato) about some of the trends she expects to see in 2012. Simone told us that 2012 will be about bright and bold accessories. She expects to see lots of looks featuring a safe outfit, livened up with colorful necklaces, bangles, purses and shoes.
One of Simone's favorite accessories is a colorful purse, so she decided to start her own handbag line called Simone Camille. Her line features hand-embroidered vintage fabrics from India in colorful patchwork designs. She describes the purses as one-of-a-kind and eclectic.
Simone started the line when she grew tired of looking for purses that didn't exist. She designed a purse for herself, and her friend Nicole Richie loved it and asked for one of her own. From there the bag was photographed and the demand grew. Simone's next step was to design leather and suede purses that are more affordable with the same bohemian, whimsical aesthetic.
