We collaborated with Illustrator Natalia Grosner to illustrate a selection of looks from NYFW S/S 2012,in her signature style, using her nameless pea pod character. I love seeing how to clothes translate, its so charming!
Phillip Lim has become king of retail separates. He always nails the street trend on top of the head, or maybe its that he sets it. That sounds more like it! When asked about his 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 2012 collection Lim brought up childhood references like kites and spoke nostalgically about Jil Sander and [...]
I really liked Reed Krakoff’s S/S 2012 collection, especially the rigid suit-like looks. The bonded cotton used in the “suiting” gave a really streamlined look to the silhouette, and was shouting woman in power! His use of contrast fabrication and color blocking in other looks also gave the collection a really nice and graphic feel. [...]
“It was about light and flight,” was what Wayne Lee said when asked to describe her collection. We saw quite a bit of white in this NYFW, which is always nice and refreshing, but a lot of it also shared other similar characteristic like the layering and flowing fabrics. Though it was a small selection [...]
The Row’s S/S 2012 collection was as elegant as could be. The mega-celebrity twin duo stopped surprising me a season or two ago and now I just expect this caliber of work from their collections. They mentioned being inspired by Tibet. You could definitely sense that in the silhouettes and spirituality of the collection. The [...]
For their first runway presentation the young prolific brand Suno, known for their use of prints, seemed like they tried to reserve some of their usual fire by keeping to a minimal palette. Of course the prints were in no way jeopardized, but it did give the overall vibe of the collection a more serious [...]
You could not find a more classic and chic collection than that of Jenni Kayne for S/S 2012, during NYFW. The looks could not have been any easier and unpretentious than this. The selection was so tight and streamlined, could have been Celine’s younger sister.
By the looks of their S/S 2012 collection Rag & Bone designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright may have gotten in some beach lovin’ when designing this collection. But despite the strong surfer references the collection still retains its urban chic. A bit overwhelming at times in the styling but we see beyond that. There [...]
We know by now that ready to wear innovation comes with no shortage to the Proenza Schouler duo. Each season their collection stands out in its direction and fabrication. Though not shy to borrow ideas from the past Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez always find a way to remix it and make it all their [...]
I loved the Lacoste S/S 2012 Collection! As the collection was unfolding in front of me I kept thinking, “what is going on here, this looks amazing!” And then I remembered that Lacoste is now under the creative direction of Portuguese designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista. This collection was everything I love in sportswear. I loved [...]
I was not crazy about Alexander Wang’s S/S 2012 collection, but I did rather like his T by Alexander Wang S/S 2012 selection. The minimal palette and lightweight fabrications gave the collection a really effortless grace. He did exactly what was meant to do with this collection, create beautiful everyday separates at a accessible price [...]
I really like Jill Stuart. I know that if I ever want something that will make me feel really soft and feminine and look great on my body I will be able to find it in her store. The Jill Stuart S/S 2012 collection was more sweet than anything else. Her palm tree prints, pastel [...]
