St. John for Spring 2012, held at the St. John boutique on Fifth Avenue, proved that all-American glamour could very well be effortlessly chic. Creative Director George Sharp drew on Carly Simon for inspiration in her embodiment of free-spirited glamour. With ribbed knit separates in grey and white, cream blazers, pleated pants, deep v-neck halters, and floor length liquid gowns, the collection will be desired by any modern woman aspiring to dress with sophisticated ease. The muted palette ushers in a hushed sex appeal, but sportswear at the brand still maintains it’s cool, crisp, sharpness.

St John’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection proved that the label has gone in a new, stylish direction. Traditionally known for its knit suits and cool neutral colors, St. John stepped out of its comfort zone and carefully into the future. With a collection full of anything but dowdy long skirts and a cool silver color palette, it was both refreshing and exciting. St. John now has positive indication of a new direction, thanks to George Sharp, and of offering elegant attire to a new, younger legion of fashion-conscious women.
