So from what I can see from the NYFW shows, the common denominator for the Spring/Summer 2012 collections are punchy pastels, with a southern bell influence. Marc Jacobs’ lined the runway with malt shopped, white sunglass and red pinstriped-clad models. The most striking example is Alice + Olivia’s colorful patterns and light fabrics. Their collection seems to be an ode to many decades of women, with inspiration ranging from 1950s jet setters to 1970s disco queens. I’m excited to see la suite!
