Colour Me Happy

It is a known fact that I have a love for all things mint and peachy so when I saw that this seemed to be a popular trend at NYFW I was elated, to say the least! DVF brought us fresh looks for Spring; simplicity, femininity, and flashes of pastel is exactly what I like and what you got in abundance. With a preppy look at times it gave a nod to the sporty theme that we see in the other collections such as 3.1 Phillip Lim and Helmut Lang. My favourite outfit from DVF was the green tutu with a shimmer and loose vest to match it was effortlessly girly.

Leaving behind this years bright shades you are left feeling like a kid in a candy store as you see layers of sherbet orange and powder pinks in flowing yet neatly  tailored garments for 3.1 Phillip Lim SS 2012 collection. Steering clear of the busy patterns or safari trend that many other designers have gone for Lim has showed us that really simple is best. With sleek lines and generously cut trousers you see a reminiscence of Calvin Klein and the minimalism of the nineties. Sporty undertones give a twist to what seems like a timeless collection. The beautiful beige and cream maxi dress points us in the direction of Calvin Klein's collection with beautiful bias cut dresses draping across the models waif like bodies.

In shades of nude and subtle peach you can almost feel the soft silk touch your skin as you watch the models glide. This collection is sensual and steering somewhat away from its usual hard edge with the soft tailoring and collarless jackets; masculinity to accompany satin slips that showed off the female form. A perfect coupling. And who said Romance was dead....
