Inspired by a feminine and glamorous Sophia Loren, the designer for Callula Lillibelle, William Calvert, took the Spring 2012 collection into a modern day era. Delicate pieces are mixed with strong, distinct prints and fabulous statement pieces. Black and gold jacquard shorts are topped with a daring tulle blouse, while another model wore yellow metallic jacquard shorts with a leopard print jacket in black and white. Bright colors rules the presentation in fuchsia, aqua, neon pink, ivory, and a red polka dot chemise dress. Callula Lillibelle’s accessories were bold in color and shapes, as yellow pumps and large belts met tapered trousers and long silhouette dresses. This collection has inspired me to bring some color into my typical (and very New York City) black and gray closet!
