Honor Spring 2012 Collection-Femininity Cascades Down The Runway

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Honor NYC's sophomore collection was one of my favorites at New York Fashion Week (so far).  The collection paid particular emphasis to the notion of delicate femininity as sheer layers of beautiful pastel fabrics graced 1960s style knee length full dresses. Due to the lightness of the fabric, the full skirts cascaded down the runway in an effortless and ethereal manner. Given the recent seasons' onslaught of bold colors and color blocking, it was refreshing to experience and view a soft color palette.

I was particularly enamored and intrigued by the peter pan cutoff necklines, as it created a "sans collar" effect that blended seamlessly with the lace and chiffon paneling.

With a store already in place in NYC's Meatpacking District, I foresee staggering growth for Giovanna Randall's young line. It speaks to a wide age range and endears both one's fashion sensibilities and love for all things feminine and sweet.

The Fabulous: lace and sheer paneling, sweetheart necklines, absent collars, homage to the 1960s, lacy over the knees socks, soft pastels.
