Vera Wang Spring 2012

Credit: Vogue.com

It seems that Vera Wang has also taken a sportier route this season.  Rather than coming across sweet, this is a refreshingly modern and sleekly futuristic take on eyelet patterns and fluttery skirts.  I love how Vera has reinterpreted sportswear into rather sophisticated daywear while maintaining the expected Vera Wang aesthetic.  Moreover, Vera has a great eye for shape and accents, adding texture and edge by breaking up the bodice into unique fastenings.  The peplum hardly feels quirky and dated; rather, it flows right into the line and provides a little volume to an otherwise streamlined silhouette.  I love how clean the lines are in general without any fuss or romantic bells and whistles.  Vera has always excelled at bridal, giving sweetly romantic designs and silky accents.  This collection demonstrates that she can do something more without losing sight of who she is.
