The designer managed to marry both his love of minimal with a softness, and the takeaway was a very feminine collection.
Michael Kors Spring 2012
Every few seasons Michael Kors loosens his fascination with urban dwellers for the wilds of Africa. This season's switch was sparked by a recent trip he took to South Africa's Kruger National Park. As such, he lined up a rugged, earthy collection with pops of spicy orange and persimmon.
Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012
Oscar de la Renta's runway started and ended with a major statement — a big, voluminous evening gown of a statement. And everything in between was pretty major, too. His inspiration is always women and the idea of dressing them up for something big.
Vera Wang Spring 2012
Vera Wang explored sheer layers and architecture for spring. Her all-white opening of see-through eyelet had an otherworldly feel to it, like costumes in a Stanley Kubrick dream sequence
Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2012
There were no wheels reinvented here. But then again, Marc doesn't need to do that. Sometimes all a girl needs is a great, simple look.
Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2012
For spring's requisite suit, Hilfiger blew up and abstracted red and blue tonal florals on button-downs and trousers and teamed them with khaki jackets.
DKNY Spring 2012
The extra-large T-shirt was the idea for evening. Except these were done in a pretty pinky-nude or hot pink, slightly sheer and worn over a sequined mini — an effortless look that didn't skimp on sex appeal.
Prabal Gurung Spring 2012
His final look blended all of his motifs — the abstract print, a sheer skirt, flourishes of floral flou and a touch of bondage. Provocative and yes, pretty.
BCBG Spring 2012
Dresses — the emphasis was on dresses, but with two pant looks, including a louche jumpsuit.
