ASOS SS12 PREVIEW

Headed to the ASOS SS12 preview last week and it totally blew my mind. Their use of fabrication is incredible considering the price point. I loved all the tropical inspired hot shorts and mini dresses. The lucite tinted visor and perforated backpacks were so cool too. I am always so impressed by the evolution of ASOS as a private label brand. Some of my favorite shots below….

DIVINE DETAILING: GIVENCHY

 

 

Ricardo Tisci demonstrated, yet again, his relentlessness attention to detail, tailoring and understanding of the female body with gis SS12 collection. A slightly different essence to his normal dark palette, Tisci played with pastel colors while keeping that edgy Givenchy vibe in the hardware. This was hands-down my favorite show so far this season and I think we can all agree those shoes with shark tooth closure are the perfect balance of femininity and traditional Tisci touch.

FLUORESCENT ABERRATION

With all this SS12 fever in the air its hard not to become image crazy as you surf the web. From runway shows to tumblrs you start off browsing one show which reminds you of a post on a blog you saw which brings you to five other blogs, eight shopping carts and a desktop littered with jpegs, gifs tifs and madness… trust me, I know. Amidst the overwhelming stimulation and fashion week madness I managed to focus my inspiration into one rather psychedelic sensibility. Sink your teeth into my creative juices and get lost in a world of florescent hues and geometric shapes.

NYFW TOP SHOWS: CHARLOTTE RONSON

Two words: NECK BELT. After last season’s presence of metallic chokers and collars I thought for sure there would be a lot of form fitting neckwear but this takes the cake. Although there has been virtually no jewelery coming down the NYFW runway I think this makes such a bold statement and I love it for SS12… I can imagine it in floral prints or spectator stripes as well.

Much like the vibe of Altuzarra, Charlotte Ronson had a very Utilitarian Femininity about it. The strappy sandals with the sheer knee-high socks underneath is a refreshing update to the clunky silhouettes of last year. We again see another metallic shoe in Ronson’s collection proving it to be a key player in NYFW.
