While we assemble our in-depth New York Fashion Week stories and specials, Lucire photographer Stephen Ciuccoli wanted to share with readers some of his shots from the shows at Lincoln Center.
Vivenne Tam, moved by her zen garden at her apartment, showed an elegant collection, with clear inspiration from the plant life, water and space there. Orchid and petal appliqués, ﬁoral and bamboo prints, and coral and ocean blue hues marked out Tam’s spring–summer 2012 collection.
Helen Yarmak still showed sumptuous furs but knows when to tone things down while times are tough, showing dresses, ponchos and chunky knitted sweaters for spring.
Farah Angsana also looked to the east for inspiration in a return to form this season, with delicious beaded evening gowns, embroidered dresses and kimono jackets. Her inspiration came from a painting that Angsana saw in a Shanghai art gallery, tempering the oriental inﬂuences with western sensibilities.
There’ll be more from Custo Barcelona in our pages, but, in the meantime, we’re whetting your appetite with one of Custo Dalmau’s most wearable collections—but he’s lost none of the trade-mark pizazz with psychedelic prints, sequins and rufﬂes.
Last but not least, designer Rafael Cennamo really impressed us. He is established but spring 2012 was the ﬁrst collection he showed at New York Fashion Week. He showed a tightly edited connection, inspired by collectible dolls. Again, there was a sense of glamour to the collection, thanks to Cennamo’s use of lace, tulle and beading.
