Can you believe it’s almost time for New York Fashion Week again? The Fall 2012 shows begin in just a few weeks time, in mid February at Lincoln Center. Designer Tracy Reese just sent over one of her Fall 2012 sketches with a note on her inspiration for this collection. According to the designer’s office:
” For fall 2012, Reese offers an optimistic color palette of vibrant tomato, juniper green and lemon enlivening neutral browns, grays and black. A mixture of fabric, textures and embellishments create dimension on tailored silhouettes, abundant with refined craftsmanship details. Bold pops of fiery tomato orange energize the classic contrast of black and white, as seen on the Black Box Jacquard Pea Jacket with large leather knot button, and Bi-Level Mini, when paired with the Tomato Falling Leaves Ruched Turtleneck and Black Tomato Gold Mixed Media Pump. A subtle peplum updates a classic mini yet remains flattering and wearable.”
This looks interesting, although I wish the skirt wasn’t a mini. Is it just me, but don’t minis fade a bit when the weather turns colder? I do like the jacket at the accessories with the “tomato” accents. I’ll be interested to see more from Tracy on the Runway. What do you think readers?
