NYC FASHION WEEK SPRING 2012

A Fashion Week Round-Up

 

Style Watch by Eden Herbstman

September 2011

Even though fashion week has wrapped in New York, London fashion week is in full swing, and the looks that inspired this past runway season have certainly not been forgotten. Each designer created different visions of femininity that emulated through their signature styles. Alexander Wang’s motorcycle chic theme captured a look of feminine edge mixing a biker helmut with floral prints, paired with a floral jumper. The minimal simplicity of Calvin Klein displayed a collection that was soft, refreshing, and classic, which was a great counter balance to Rodarte’s intense look of smokey eyes and dresses that were literally walking works of art. Rodarte and Prabal Gurung set the trend for clothing that served as canvases for art. Van Gogh was the obvious inspiration for Rodarte’s dresses while Prabal Gurung chose electric purple brushstrokes mixed with his collections futuristic elements. Vera Wang, like Prabal Gurung, looked to the future to design for their present collections. Both designers incorporated neon patterns over intricately constructed pieces, mixing sportier looks with elegant gowns.

Each runway show consists of a complete head-to-toe look, and this season it was hard to miss the head gear rocked by the models. Designers incorporated different hair accessories to accent their collections. All that was missing from the Alexander Wang runway show was a hot motorcycle to accompany the hot models. Wang sent models down the runway in mesh doorags, while some carried helmets. Victoria Beckham turned the classic baseball cap into chic leather caps, which were paired with her dresses. Luca Luca, Kevork Kiledjian, and Marc Jacobs chose turban options for models, while Derek Lam used polo-inspired hats designed to compliment patterns on his dresses.

The dominating trend though that showed up in almost all of the designers collections were floral accents. Alice and Olivia’s entire presentation radiated a sophisticated flirty garden party, while other designers worked bold floral prints into their collections. Peter Som and Cynthia Rowley showed colorful floral pants and with a matching blazer, while Jason Wu went for a black and white floral pairing of high wasted shorts with a fitted crop top.
