I had the pleasure of attending the Fall 2011 Honor show last season, so I was happy to get the chance to check out the Spring/Summer 2012 collection.  Although there were some suits that I would never wear, there was an overall beauty to the collection.  The detailing was what stood out to me, as well as what designer, Giovanna Randall, was able to do with lace.  The garments were so feminine, yet quite sexy.  And the back of the garments were to die for, particularly on her ultra feminine dresses. 

GIovanna Randall also presented the collection in a fresh way, when the girls came out, there was a blower to make the outfits move, and reveal little lace undies.  This is Honor’s 3rd show, and 1st show under the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tents.  I look forward to more, or I can always stop by the new store in the meat packing district.

Elene Cassis

The vibe at Elene Cassis’ first show under the tents at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, was a good one. With energetic music by Santigold and more, it was the perfect vibe to start off a great evening of the last night of Fashion Week.

Now about the clothes. I really liked many of the pieces and loved the detailing. The line was inspired by the New York skyline. The wine color gown, a black textured mini, with a scalloped hem was my favorite, and a leather skirt with a zipper slit.

I didn’t have the best seat in the house, but I did my best to get pictures. The line was filled with textured (maybe wool or cotton) blends, leather, suede, and silk; all great elements for the Fall season. She used a lot large blocking detail, which was particularly successful with the leather and suede. Fur was also incorporated in the collection is a sort of Russia meets New York kind of way. The line seems to be geared to the sophisticated 30 something New York woman, but I look forward to seeing more.

I lost my paperwork that would have told me who the make-up artist was but I loved the clean, flawless, dewy look of the models.

What are your thoughts?
