We went deep sea diving with Peter Pilotto’s scuba diving-inspired Fall 2012 RTW collection, as the colors were a true inspiration consisting of beautiful sea greens, yellows, and blues. Such colors complemented the mix of various prints in a cool, fun way and sexy cutouts were an essential part of classic and feminine silhouettes. With rich colors, came luxe textiles in velvet and fur, layer upon layer. In addition to the aesthetic appeal, flirty peplums and intricate embellishments added a warmer feel to such assertive prints. Go ahead and wear Peter Pilotto’s collection with the confidence that you already possess!

Get dressed, layer up, and then do it all over again. That’s how Rebecca Taylor did it, and it was spot on chic. Pleated blouses were paired with onyx shearling hooded vests, herringbone coats covered leather bomber jackets, fringe sweaters fell over printed dresses…and it all looked flawless. The “wow-factor” came in via glitter, beads, velvet and leather pieced or charcoal nail head leggings. We will fantasize about those leggings until they’re in our closet, and then we’ll rock them, Rebecca Taylor style,with mini skirts and dresses on top. Beyond fashion, let’s just say we’ll all be imitating that undone beautiful fishtail braid the models rocked hard.
I’m obsessed with Rebecca Minkoff’s inspiration—a girl with moxie—but the obsession doesn’t stop there. How about the way she knows just how to glorify the modern woman by empowering her independence? Represented through bold jewel tones and menswear inspired pieces, Minkoff paired courageous ancestral prints and brocade touches to create confident looks. The pants and trousers were utterly to die for, as were the jackets and coats. Blanket coats, lamb bombers, overcoats and tweeds will be topping everyone’s lists for Fall 2012.

Designing couple Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia went retro for their Sachin + Babi 2012 Spring collection. Tailored separates and lightweight maxi dresses were presented in bright colors of ivory, blueberry, tangerine, cantaloupe, and melon (is there a theme here?). The duo paid close attention to beautiful details, such as leather trim and exposed zippers to add a little chic rock n’ roll. If you are looking for a feminine, two-tone spaghetti strap pleated maxi or a soft leather circle skirt, this is certainly the collection for you!
