Milly Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week September 14, 2011
“My Spring 2012 collection is modern and geometric in cut and print, softened by earthy materials like wood and tortoise resin. Colors are vibrant and exciting- vermilion, tangerine, jade and azure are grounded by chocolate brown and indigo,” says Michelle Smith. I love this collection so much. The retro prints and vintage designs make for a stand-out collection by a label this is slowly but surely emerging onto the mass market.
The vintage and retro look is something that almost everyone wants a piece of, and Michelle Smith makes it available at a pretty affordable price. Sure you have Topshop for these types of garments - but isn’t it best to shop around more. The palette screamed retro-chic in shades of emeralds, red, bright blues, brown, and navy blue. The cat’s eye sunglasses are bang-on trend at the moment and complete the 1960s feel to the designs.
Favourite looks in this collection include tangerine high waisted trousers with a blouse consisting of both small and large prints and a sheath dress with a print that reminds me of tetris. Both of which are completed with cat’s eye sunglasses to complete the fabulous, retro-chic look.
