JeremyScottSpring2012 (2)

Jeremy Scott goes all Daisy May at the country fair a la 1980 on us and I confess to feeling confused. Which is the meanest thing I’m gonna say. Why you ask? Cuz his fuzzy animal sneakers with Adidas have earned him lifetime immunity. It’s as simple as that!

RodarteCSpring2012 359x540 NYFW: Rodartes Pixilated Van Gogh Fabrics

The use of computers to generate techy prints is clearly a  millennium trend designers are using to create newness statements. Rodarte hops on board with its Spring 2012 collection, featuring pixilated prints inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, mentions of which have dominated the brand’s reviews. Images via Coolechic.

On the next page see a full view of the dresses, which, if you were one of those artsy college girl who was all over the printed vintage dress trend and still are fond of the look….you’re gonna be in heaven. Also get a look at the shoes (image via T), designed by Burak Uyan.

NYFW: Coco & Breezy Spring/Summer 2012

Highsnobette-Coco&Breezy ss2012 (6)

Last night we attended Coco & Breezy’s first runway for their signature eyewear. Titled “Rainy Days,” the collection “represents a shield of protection  for those taunted for being different.” Known for bold studded eyewear with a sci-fi edge and the idea of being out of this world, Spring 2012  sees a softer more subtle silhouette in various hues we can see as having a broader appeal. 

The show opened with an umbrella clad ballerina, a violinist  a short film and a voice narrating the trajectory of the twins who pretty much dropped averything in their native Minesota and moved to New York to follow their fashion dreams .

While the eyewear was the highlight, the closing looks featuring body hugging dresses made  in collaboration with Courtney M. Roberts (a college student)  caught our eye as well as a special appearance by Omarion who of course made us want to belt out a rendition of  ”Ice Box” (can’t help it). On the next page a closer look the eywear and a few attendees.

NYFW: Alexander Wang + White Shoes

12 September 2011, 21.32 | Posted in Fashion Week, Shoes | 3 comments »

AlexanderWang-2 (1)

In what is probably his strongest if not most distinctive collection yet, Alexander Wang for Spring 2012 catches print fever (inspired perhaps a bit by Rodarte and Prada Spring 2011?) and adds newness and electricity with activewear-inspired silhouettes–done to perfection because it’s a style aesthetic that has always been a backbeat for the line.

And yet, as strong as the clothes were, the white shoes he showed….just, oh my. And the truth is while it pains me a bit because white shoes have always been my secret, private signature and now they’re exploded all over a major runway for all the copiers to follow, nonetheless, these are a major must-own.

Highssnobette-Sally Lapointe backstage ss 2012 by Hannah Newbery (3)

One of our favorite shows to attend at New York fashion week is Sally LaPointe . From concept to production her runway presentations are shows in the true sense of the word transporting attendees into another world for a few minutes. For Spring the inspiration revolved around decaying architecture, more precisely  “The Renwick Ruins” in Staten Island, New York. Ethereal and bold, silhouettes are long and fluid with a succession of sharp and soft angles. Highly Snobette approved independently of  any pop star endorsements. On the next page we give you a glimpse of the ambiance backstage via Hannah Newbery. More runway images to follow.

Highsnobette-General Idea ss2012 by William Yan (4) 

General Idea’s Spring 2012 collection speaks to designer Bumsuk Choi’s skill at mixing color, patterns and textures. Inspired by “les garcons sur la plage” (boys on the beach), the collection is anchored by nautical stripes and  color blocking, giving new life to items like the knitted shorts above, which we would gladly borrow. A peek at our faves courtesy of William Yan, complete runway here.

Our beloved A  Peace Treaty gives us a little tease of  their Spring 2012 collection. We’re already loving the  beach side inspiration. Then again we love whatever do anyway. It’s just  one of those labels you cannot help but get attached to…global inspiration, social consciouness, impeccable styling,  pieces you know you will wear forever and even pass down.  More on the flip, via APT.
