Michael Bastian turned to the Galapagos Islands with the idea of exploration, and evolution when his collection made its Spring 2103 debut at the Industria Superstudio in NY’s Meatpacking District. The collection paid homage to the extensive history of explorers visiting the islands. A hint of South American prints and burst of color in yellow, and turquoise paired with khaki and silver.
Anteprima held their Spring 2013 collection at the historic Castello Sforzesco Thursday evening. Feel the Best, was the theme of the evening. The inspiration was about inspiring women to shine with joy, elegance and confidence.
Tracy Reese will be debuting her Spring 2012 on Sunday but we were dying to know what’s in store before the first look hits the runway!
For Spring 2012, the designer Tracy Reese is inspired by a land of pure delight. Softly voluminous styles paired with lean, refined silhouettes, evolving proportions with a focus on modern fluidity. There will be subtle hues of khaki and blush, mixed with pastel shades of waterfall. Misty blue and aqua tears gradually intensify to deep saturated tones, with neon brights making a bold splash for the transition into summer. Reese describes the sketch shown here as, “A drapey culotte jumpsuit in waterfall, complimented with drawstring waist, and seductive neckline details, paired with a lemon zest hat and printed platform sandals to embody the relaxed mood of the season.” In a word: Beautiful! Stay tuned for images after the runway show.
The Spring 2012 muse is contemporary, fresh, and ethereal. The collection emphasizes cut and color with unexpected cut-outs in silhouettes. Shades of oyster are highlighted by bold citrus colors of lemon, lime and tangerine. Cropped slouchy embellished sweaters, long skirts and voluminous outerwear in technical fabrics add edge, while apron back dresses mixed with bone colored snake leather bibs inject a paired down cool attitude. Rebecca Taylor will present her collection this Friday at Lincoln Center.
