Although shops are starting to fill up with the trends for Spring / Summer 2012, currently the shows for the Fall / Winter 2012 collections are in full swing in New York. It’s great fun to see the new creations of all the hottest designers in the world and over the coming weeks, I will write ocasional posts on the best dresses and garments for women over 40 from the collections. In this episode I will feature Rachel Comey, Costello Tagliapietra, Cynthia Rowley, St. John and Peter Som.
The graphical trend continues at Rachel Comey with strong color and great prints. Even orange is still present!
My reader Suzanne had already pointed out in a comment that I might like this collection. She is starting to know me 🙂 Indeed this collection was full of little treasures. Beautiful dresses in fabulous colors were draped beautifully at the front. Many featured asymmetrical features which I love so much as well. The colors were bright, with orange again featuring prominently.
Cynthia Rowley featured some very comfortable and chic dresses, which go all the way to the knee, my preferred length at the moment. I like the idea of the grey dress below, which is worn over a printed shirt. A very comfortable, yet trendy look for autumn and winter,
I loved the effortless elegance shown at the St. John collection. That dress is just so elegant and chic, yet trendy, while those beautiful wide pants in my favorite old pink remind me of the wonderful style of Catherine Hepburn.
Peter Som also showed a continuation of the wide oversized shoulders and the peplum trend that we have seen for Spring 2012 as well. These 2 trends featured in quite a number of the collections shown at New York Fashion week.
Which collection is your favorite sofar?
