New York Fashion Week S/S 12 Womenswear Color Recap
September 21, 2011 § Leave a Comment
After the S/S 11 white out, which featured numerous collections of achromatic summer dresses, pant suits, and evening gowns, New York designers have taken a cue from Jil Sander’s S/S 11 show and infused some blindingly bright hues into their collections for S/S 12. Yves Klein blue, bubblegum pink, and poppy gave vibrant pops of color to a number of runways, while seafoam blue and sand balanced some of the more vivid hues with a calm neutrality.
My favorite palettes for S/S 12 were the various iterations of yellow – mustard, canary, lemonade – each of which complimented the collections in a unique way. Mustard offered a visual weight, canary gave an optimism, and lemonade added a light airiness. Look below for some colors to look forward to next spring.
