There are some really great pieces in this collection and some pieces that are not my favorite. However, usually something that is paired with something I do not like I love. There are fun splashes of color here and there and the dress at 7:15 is stellar. I love the blue and black silky and matte colors together. It looks fun and flirty but can also look Kimono like. I get that.. but I still love it. The flirty slit up the front that gives a flow and movement to the skirt that I want in my closet. There are small similarities hidden in the collection with shirts made similarly. However, the shirt directly in front of the dress at 7:00 into the show has this cheap looking trim around the neckline that takes away from the beauty of the materials together (which is used in a few other pieces also). I do not like the Pleather looking gray coats/jackets in here but love the lace look of a lot of the collection.
I like quiet a few pieces of the collection but not necessarily together. I give the show a 7 overall out of a 10 rating. Even though I find some of the pieces really great I also find some of the materials looking cheap. The black and blue pieces are my favorite of the collection. What do you think of this 2012 collection?
