Mara Hoffman S/S 2012

The moment we walked into Mara Hoffman‘s Mara Mexicana presentation last week, our hearts literally skipped a beat. It honestly doesn’t get any better than custom prints inspired by Otomi embroidery and huipils, knitted Mexican serapes separates, silk crepe fabrics with neon embroidery, and colorful rope jewelry by Holst & Lee. Throw in some live music by a mariachi band and we’re sold. Now, all we’re waiting for is a home line by the master of prints. Mara, are you listening?


Jason Wu S/S 2012

Jason Wu‘s Spring Collection was off the chain with ultra feminine Kaws-inspired prints paired with Wu’s classically tailored silhouettes. But what really took the cake was the stunning makeup and bold hair. I’m obsessed with the needle-like black feathers arbitrarily bobby pinned into a messy do and the vibrant orangish red lips. Check out the how-to here.

Fenton S/S 2012

Inspired by the paintings of Cecily Brown and the Art Deco architecture of Miami, Dana Lorenz’s striking jewelry collection was presented against a backdrop of rose and yellow gold chain drapes at The Four Seasons. Long rhinestone duster necklaces were finished with beige feathers, silk fringed chokers were twisted and dotted with coral and turquoise, and beaded cuffs were adorned with pastel resin charms. And of course, all of it was juxtaposed with weighty chains and fierce spikes. Typically Fenton. Unsurprisingly exceptional.
