Manish Arora S/S 2012

Manish Arora decided to go more subdued this season, designing what he calls easy and believable clothes. Of course, as it usually goes in the creative industry, these things are relative; and from the moment Spanish actress Rossy de Palma opened the show in a holographic bustier dress, there was barely a surface that didn’t include a mix of iridescent silver, psychedelic or photographic prints, or marabou feather details.

To his credit, though, the pieces present a vibrant and visual addition to one’s wardrobe, and actually do prove to be very wearable, as Manish went with elegant sixties-couture silhouettes—featuring peplums, knee-length, as well as floor-grazing skirts, and skinny cigarette pants—and stuck to a relatively toned down palette. The designer also debuted his new line of jeans, produced in collaboration with French premium denim brand Notify, which were imprinted with the collection’s matching florescent hues and psychedelic prints.
