I have clicked through every single fashion show from New York Fashion Week for Spring 2012 via NY Magazine, and wow. I loved so many. It is of course fitting that on the first day that really feels like fall, boots and sweater weather, I have identified so many trends that have me beyond excited for Spring 2012.
But, such is life. I identified a few lust-worthy favorite collections as well.
I loved Elie Tahari’s take on what I deemed gilded abundance. It was dripping with gold, and whether in black and white or velveteen blues and oranges it was elegant and modern.
I am loving Christian Siriano’s Spring collection. It is completely wearable, relatable, and lovely. I love, love, love the pairing of sportswear silhouette on top with the a full skirt, and that trend was seen a lot on the runways. Great use of color, fluidity and silhouette.
I love the elegance and edginess out of Reem Acra’s Spring 2012 collection. Dripping in sequins and beading, and studded with leather and fur, this collection is elegant but still refreshingly fresh, and feels almost a big ageless. Any of these looks would work for 20’s – 30’s – 40’s – 50’s…
More Spring 2012 trends coming soon – you’ll love them!
