On the Block – BCBG by Max Azria was dominated by color blocking for its fall 2012 runway show presented during New York Fashion Week on Thursday. Relaxed and slouchy silhouettes brought an elegant ease to the catwalk with models donning a variety of hues ranging from electric blue to eye-popping coral grounded in neutrals. Accented by furs and geometric prints, the fall collection is tailored for a woman who longs for luxury without any over the top thrills.
Valentino’s Demure Couture – Valentino under designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Picciol has found its own voice throughout the years and spring 2012 haute couture is no exception with a collection of demure romanticism. This season showcased florals, lace, and crystal embellished bodices, all made with the utmost attention to detail. Like many shows this haute couture season, the color palette was light–showcasing silvers, powdery blue and rosy pink for a feminine touch.
Skyline Couture – Karl Lagerfeld appeared to be inspired by air travel and stewardess uniforms for Chanel’s spring 2012 haute couture collection presented earlier today. The Grand Palais was transformed into the interior of an airplane with models walking down the aisles in elongated silhouettes and extended shoulder winged sleeves. Playing up the jetsetter theme, blue was a dominate hue for spring with sky blue, sapphire and navy all making an appearance. Amid the blue display, there is crystal beading, drop pocket dresses and pleated skirts.
