Get the scoop on Spring 2012 looks from Marc Jacobs, Stephen Burrows and Naeem Kahn.
This season. one thing was clear: the Stephen Burrows woman is happy. His models didn’t just walk down the runway — they sashayed, swung their hips and even did a twirl. Their exuberance was matched by the clothes — which were equally upbeat. Burrows sent down a collection of boldly printed caftans, dresses and separates. By crafting them from figure-hugging silk jersey fabric, Burrows ensured that his woman wasn’t just happy — she was sexy too!
It’s no secret: Marc Jacobs is the show to see every season. A ticket to view his collection is as coveted as water in a desert. And this season, he proved exactly why he remains essential after all these years: visionary pieces. His Spring collection was chock-full of dresses and separates crafted from unexpected materials like gleaming Lurex, taffeta, plexiglass-like fringe and plastic skirts. Is it wearable? No, yet we’re sure that mass retailers will be creating versions of this in no time!
Stunning is simply the only word to fully describe Kahn’s collection. The celeb darling, who counts Mary J. Blige, Holly Robinson Peete and Halle Berry as fans, showed his star power with glam gowns that made our jaw hit the floor. We loved the luxe fabrics, sophisticated shapes and craftsmanship in the pieces that went down the runway. Naeem Kahn’s spring collection was truly for the lady who loves luxe!
