Women’s Wear Autumn 2012

Tracey Reese: Women’s wear designer Tracey Reese always brings forth a collection of simple elegance to make a women feel like she’s on top of the world. Sexy, vibrant, empowered, easy – are just  few of the words to describe her colorful Fall 2102 collection. In hues that would cause any onlooker to wonder “who are you wearing,” Tracey Reese delivers another amazing collection for the women on the go. Shrunken peplum jackets, draped silk “cocoon” blouses, and sparkly lamé party frocks came in traffic-stopping bright colors ranging from tomato red to juniper green to ultraviolet. –


Emilio Pucci: From the moment the lights eliminated the runway, the sexy “come hither” chiffon with slashes of flesh made for a collection of sultry feminism. The superb tailoring yielded true to the talents of designer, Peter Dundas’ creativity. The addition of shear T-shirt, beaver fur & nude patent leather pea-coats rounded a great showing of garments to the swarmed over by many ‘fashionistas’. Plus, a new Pucci store on Madison Avenue will be up and running by September, right about when these clothes start shipping.


Rick Owens: When I think of an Gothic edge, avant garde, thought provoking, raptures of a sheer genius, I stop at the creative minds of Rick Owens. His Fall 2012 monotone collection did not disappoint. The imagery of moving concrete sculptures lent itself to explain the journey of which Owens took his audience as the model came down the runway in sheaths of chiffon and light weight wools seen the cropped leather jackets and huge lapels, adourned with mask and a peek-a-boo red lip upon a pale face. Owens mentioned that he’d progressed from last season’s Marcel Breuer (“soft” brutalism) to Frank Lloyd Wright, the most organic of architects. So it was Wright’s elementalism that ultimately shaped Owens’ Fall. –
