Tones, Prints, and Body Rhythm - SS2012




(Above) Nicole Farhi

It's always easier to fall in love with spring colours or even autumn for me, because both are transitional seasons that share traits ... one having the ability to get away with long or short sleeved garments, in conjunction with or without jackets, sandals, and tanks. It's the almost rhythmic period that I love ... neither cold nor hot! We make our choices and the experience begins.

Some of the silhouettes, and details that I admired for next season were a blend of textures, and prints – particularly those of pastel coloured motifs mixed in separates.

I loved so many other looks, however here's a few more that I haven't shared:
Sparkling golds, and solid white styles captured my eye as well, especially with a touch of a few peplum additions. In fact, throw in a luxe hat or fitted bottom into this stylish medley and then ... well, you've sold me! 
 Giorgio Armani
Pant slits and a colour palette glistening of dreamy night.
 Light and airy safari sophisticate: I really adored these flowing looks from Chloé.
Barbara Bui

  6. Love your choices, Madison! The color palette from Chloé is gorgeous, and of course I love the look from Armani, such a grown-up and "mysterious city woman" vibe going on. (And really, the hat? I want one!)

    Wow, I so didn't expect me to like the Armani shot, but I do... the colours are gorge and the split front detail is a little different.

    Hope all is well with you beautiful.
