NYFW Spring 2012

It has taken me the better part of 3 nights to gather this up, but it is finally here: My review on NYFW. FW2011 and SS2011 where such amazing seasons that I guess I was setting my expectations way to high. In that sense, it was a mayor letdown since these collections where more about wearability than statement. In other words: Safe.

Still, I'm very on board with pastels for next spring, acid hued shoes, and summer parkas and leather jackets to wear on top of any day or evening dress (mayor trend). So, not all hope is lost. Here are some of my favorite looks:

Alice + Olivia
This collection is perfect for Glee's Emma, don't you think? The looks are sweet in just the right amount, and perfect for a night out with the girls.
Love the pastels.
Anna Sui
I feel like you can always count on AS to make things fun. This time in the way of early-seventies inspiration. There where so many fun fun party dresses, and specially, so many really cool chunky necklaces: with hearts, stars, etc.
Band of Outsiders
I'm always a fan of masculine-turn-femenine looks, and these 2 are perfect examples. Specially the one in the right. Loving it. I would wear them with supper high-heel booties though.
Christian Siriano
 And enter the sheering flowy long skirt. So far the it thing of the season. Combined with a tee, it's glam and casual, all at the same time. Perfect for fab parties on the Mediterranean coast. Nothing less than that would do.
Marc Jacobs
I was like wait, I need to go through this collection a second time, it'll surelly grow on me. There must have been something awesome in there somewhere. I mean, it's MJ. Maybe I wasn't paying attention to the slides. But no, the whole flapper meets Adidas meets cowgirls meets high-school art project went NOWHERE. And I don't know why this is making me so angry, and all that green transparent paper [or fabric, or whatever it was] is making me a little nauseous. Ok ok not all was bad, and I did actually like these 2 dresses: (But you have to admit:
No big statement there)
Marc by Marc Jacobs
Now this collection was making a lot more sense to me that the MJ one. It's simple and fresh. It flows. It also reminds me of Jil Sander's Spring 2011 one (color-blocking & simple shapes), but for girls, and that's actually a very good thing. Plus the shoes are fantastic!
Nanette Lepore
The sun-dress on the right is SO Sookie 1st season, right?
Loved the colors in this collection and the bags and sandals look adorable.
Girly with a little twist.
 Proenza Schouler
Their past collections have been amazing, so understandably, my expectations where way up high. The first half of this collection was a little too muddy for my taste, with too much browns and blacks (not at all spring-like), but as the second half came in, colors became brighter and the kitschy Hawaii-inspired prints made my day. The dress on the right side makes me think of linoleum and cheap motels on the beach... but somehow, thanks to PS magic, it makes so much sense. I'm crazy about the platforms as well.
Rodarte is one of those brands that either you love, or don't get at all. Most of their dresses are definitely hard to wear. These 2, however, I so would! LOVE the colors, the shapes, everything.
Theyskens' Theory
Smart. Edgy. Urban. Cool. Super wearable.
Perfect leather jacket. Love the platforms.
Do I need to say more?
(I think this is my favorite NYFW/S12 collection)
 Perfect jeans!
And if I ever become a vampire and then decide to get married, this would make the perfect gown! But no seriously, I would wear this dress everyday. Or should I say every night? v----v
(Yes, I like it THAT much!)
