Out of the many fashion shows I saw in New York, Jeremy Laing’s S/S 2012 Collection was perhaps the most unique.
The looks were neither tailored, quirky or pastel. (Not that there is anything wrong with that. My best friends describe me as tailored, quirky and pastel. Okay, that’s a lie. But they could and I wouldn’t mind.)
The pieces were full of movement. They were soft, yet strong (utilitarian? Post-apocolyptic? Both?). The palate was earthy (nothing pink here!)
It was an intelligent and cohesive collection. I love that Jeremy Laing didn’t feel the pressure to follow the trends of other design houses—that he stayed true to his perspective. And while I don’t think my frame would support all of the volume (I may have a big mouth, but the rest of me is small!), there are definitely pieces that could be added to my wardrobe.
I loved the low, scooped backs, the sheer fabrics and the belted details. Enough about what I loved. What do you think of Jeremy Laing’s collection?
