When Sam Bisbee and his five-piece band opened the Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 show with a fun, energetic beat, you could feel something delightful was going to come down the runway. As the first look came down the runway, it is clear that color blocking is here to stay and the colors are getting brighter and brighter. A citrine crop top and tangerine skirt began the show. Each look was completed with a contrasting wedge or platform heel.
The collection had a sophisticated youthful feel with cut outs, crops, color blocking with longer hemlines and tailored jackets mixed in. The silhouettes were kept simple. She favored full skirts and shorts, although there was a series of slim-fit dresses and pants. As the show progressed floral prints were mixed in as well as under lays of color and striped looks.
The swimwear kept with the same youthful feel but with a retro cut and design, again using the fun, flirty floral prints. The colors, the prints and the silhouettes combined with the fun, energetic live band left you desiring spring and sunshine immediately!
