Each season we love seeing what designers put on the runway. Even though the garments take priority, the styling is essential. The wrong hairstyle, makeup or accessories can compromise even the best outfits. We were so inspired by the way Donna Karan accessorized each of her pieces. Her clothes are spectacular on their own so it left us in anticipation waiting to see how they would be styled. The chic accessories included natural and dark leather trim, gold buckles and metal accents that tied each look together.
Fashion week this year was amazing, even though I say that everytime, I really mean it this time. Spring 2012 still has beautiful bright neons in its future! There will still be full skirts with beautiful tops, ikat patterns, lace, fringe and suprisingly nailheads. Scroll down to view highlights from New York and London Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Week! Paris and Milan to come.
New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012
London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012
With Menswear Spring 2012 at an end and Fall 2011 Couture already starting. I pulled together some of my favorite collections for menswear. And of course all of these designers are a favorite of mines for women’s fashion as well. 3.1 Phillip Lim collection had interesting pieces, but the tie-dye pieces were most interesting of all. Burberry Prorsum’s collection had bright colors and ikat patterns great look for men in the Spring. Salvatore Ferragamo did an excllent job of capturing the casual beach look but with so much class. Netting defined the collection for Dolce & Gabbana. But my all time favorite for Menswear Spring 2012 was Hermes collection, every piece had a causual luxury feel.
