Helios & Luna Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

I had the pleasure of previewing the Helios & Luna Spring 2012 Collection from designer Patricia Clyne, a collection filled with color, classic feminine shapes, modern and luxe silhouettes. Her looks were all very chic and highlighted the details and shapes

When asked about her spring collection, Particia stated, “Spring is about colors and being comfortable wearing colors. Strong color. The mixing of colors, complimentary colors like magenta and the sunset, the golden rod, the orange and the azure and the spring green. Also, the graphic quality of black and white the positive and the negative of all colors it is a timeless combo and it looks better than ever when mixed in the same garment.”

“It’s about shapes that are fresh and new, yet have a timeless quality. The sheath, done in a new way, the blouse done a new way and an importance in a women’s vocabulary that she is comfortable trying a new shape in a blouse for instance.”

One of my favorite looks from her collection was the below pintuck sheath dress (available in gold and charcoal) – whether it’s on a mannequin or on a model, it looks very chic. The fit is just about perfect.
