Where northern hemisphere Winter 2011/2012 featured furs, extravagant neon colours, obligatory BLAHK, rich cocooning fabrics and eye dizzying prints on prints on prints... this gorgeous editorial showcasing new Spring 2012 season garments for Vogue US beckons to our softer side ladies.
Pastel hues, textures, embellishment, modest hemlines - its a fresh ladylike view. I just love it - and lucky us, because we haven't really finished with summer yet in Melbourne (fingers crossed), we can emulate these silhouettes right now.
But whilst the look is Mad Men-esque (below the knee, soft palette, feminine), and the background is modern mid-century (barcelona chairs); the beehive has been hi-jacked and rock n rolled and back-combed - just a little; and the shoes are still teetering and edgy. I gotta say, I love it - though not sure that rocking up at school drop off in the morning would be suited to this look - but then again....? What's that saying... you can never be too overdressed?
How will you change your silhouette this coming season? Are you a below the knee hemline kinda girl?
