Nanette Lepore’s play on the primary colors in her fall ’12 collection was bright and cheery. With her usual intensely embellished and decorative pieces, Lepore left everyone feeling satisfied. While she had a bit of darker colors like maroon, brown, and burnt orange bring sophistication to the palette, her use of bright, metallic colors in her accessories kept the collection lighthearted and fun.
Everything from the colors and prints, to the cuts and trims, were exactly what her super girly-girl fan-base was hoping for. With tulip high-waist skirts, tassel trim scarves, mini dresses and of course, lots and lots of pink. The collection started with slim-leg trousers, structured coats and blazers and moved into crazier, less structure, more loosely fitted dresses leaving the show with a gypsy/1970’s aftertaste.
