Entries in fashion week spring 2012 (4)


Spring 2012 L'Wren Scott 

The sky blues and sunshine yellows are looking oh so fresh at L'Wren Scott.  All of the detailed sweaters, sweet cocktail dresses and precious heels, would be the perfect attire for an intimate garden party!


Spring 2012-Jil Stuart

Color was in full force for spring and Jil Stuart brought some of the best.  Her dreamy collection was a sweet breath of fresh air.  The bold brights were key in balancing the soft cotton candy neutrals.  The charming girly silhouettes seemed effortless with scallop detailed skirts, quilted jackets and organza slips, all of which spoke to her signature sweet-sexy look.

Jil sometimes gets reviews on being a tad too girly, but I thought here her use of bold layered graphics, contrasted with soft florals added a sweet vintage detail that made the collection seem special and timeless.


Spring 2012-Marc Jacobs

The Marc Jacobs show is always a fashion week highlight and the razzle dazzle was in full force at his spring show last night.  The looks channeled Bob Fosse's Sweet Charity showgirl (in swingy sheath dresses), all the way to the Oklahoma cowgirl (in gingham and plastic boots). Every piece seemed luminous, with long sequins, clear synthetic fringes and jaw dropping lace textures.  At face value the girls seemed ready for cocktail hour, but in true Jacobs form, there is always an edge that makes them modern, fresh and  dynamic.


Spring 2012-Anna Sui

Anna Sui is always a favorite of mine. Her sense of color, print and vintage style are spot on for me. This season did not disappoint!! The collection was based on Club Sept, the creative melting pot and place to be for seventies Paris fashion; in particular she focused on illustrator Antonio Lopez's impact on the scene.  

I'm in love with the unique prints, bold colors and feminine silks used to tie it all together.  The forties silhouette was key to the show. Think black tulle kimonos, silk shorts, sailor rompers, butterfly winged sheer silk dresses and sweet heart necklines. In true Anna fashion she adds a little disco fever (frizzy hair, flared trouser, and turbans) to make the show POP.
