For fall 2012, Marni successfully channeled retro-chic, understated dressing that may have a quirky detail or two, however, without detracting from the feminine aura. Monochromatic and asymetrical color blocking reigned the looks in a color palette that was simple, yet ultra-fresh. Plus, the heavily-cut bangs and ultra shiny tresses popped nicely on the runway, especially in a very “anti-bang” season.
Are we really looking at the Jil Sander collection for fall 2012? If you had to do a double take too, it’s with good reason! The romantic side of the brand has started to trickle out, via fluffy, light, champagne pinks, and delicate hand wrought fabrications, but don’t assume that Jil Sander has turned into mushy sentimentality. Some stronger pieces, both in their fabric choices and drama via dark, sharp tailored lines appeared in the collection, epitomizing the slick minimalist expertise that has made Sander a popular name in mainstream fashion.
Honestly, how many times can that signature chevron knit be rehashed and reworked? The answer: an infinite amount! Angela Missoni’s juxtaposition of nature and the metropolis played out to its fullest degree, literally a little rough around the edges as fabrics were given a dyed, worn effect. Equipped with fur, leather, and plenty of layers, this collection can definitely be coveted by Missoni lovers who want to rethink the way they wear the house’s best hits.
