bebeBLACK Fall 2012 Collection

For bebeBlack, the seduction of the cinematic 1940’s and 1950’s film noir was the inspiration for their Fall 2012 Dark Angel collection at Style360. Class film noir silhouettes such as fitted pencil skirts and dresses, exaggerated shoulders with nipped waists, tailored shapes, corset seaming, capelet-topped trenches (my favorite look), sheer blouses, etc were given futuristic touches.

The romance of the film noir was ever present in the fabrics – georgette, velvet, lamé, jacquard, wool crepe, tartan and tweed in colors that capture the strange, dream-like, erotic and ambivalent mood of the genre.

Key colors included the following two deep tones – rouge noir (a deep crimson), and reel teal (rich green-blue) but the collection also featured lots of colored plaid.
