Here we have shots from Robert Geller’s Spring 2012 show that took place during New York Fashion Week. The styles are edgy and everything we’ve come to expect from the New York designer.
This season’s New York Fashion Week brought along several milestones, most notably Fashion’s Night Out ever-growing success and Tumblr’s expanded participation in the slew of shows and happenings across the city. To take things to new heights, the Hudson Hotel played host to the Tumblr community’s top 20 fashion and style bloggers, affectionately referred to as the “Tumblr 20″. Through this non-paid partnership, Hudson created a cross-platform opportunity that seamlessly integrated content generated by bloggers during New York Fashion Week into the hotel’s physical spaces to create a unique experience for the hotel guests and visitors.
One of our favorite shows from this season’s New York Fashion Week comes from General Idea. The looks were fabulous but we were really impressed with the overall presentation. The bright colors and amazing styles walked down the runway with Colette Magny’s “Melocoton” playing in the background blending the timeless appeal of the collection with that of the classic French singer. Here’s what Selectism had to say: “We like the orange and turquoise in the upcoming collection, but also the more toned down khaki and black and navy checker pieces. Look at the pieces individually and you will find some great every day outerwear and knitwear to accent your outfits.”
As New York Fashion Week has officially kicked off, one of the first presentations to take place (off the runway) is that of New York designer Steven Alan as he showcased his Spring/Summer 2012 collection for both men and women. The looks were amazing with a good mix of simple and wearable pieces from shorts to shirts and suiting.
We’d like to turn you to one of the most wearable collections from Paris Fashion Week. Maison Martin Margiela’s Spring 2012 collection was amazing to say the least as the styling was a perfect mix of modern and timeless. Shades of blue and red filled the stage but there was a healthy amount of neutrals like black and white to even the playing field.
Kris Van Assche delivers another splendid collection for Dior Homme, this time going with a more minimalist approach. Clean staples like high-waisted trousers, double-breasted blazers and button-down shirts were offered up mainly in black and white but beige and shades of blue made their way into the show as well.
Lanvin’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection was one of the finest from this past week’s Paris shows and with good reason. Head designer Alber Elbaz went for a more masculine collection this time around with standout pieces ranging from leather shirts and stiffer fabrics to more structured outerwear, jackets and blazers.

We’re really digging the print’s in Yohji Yamamoto’s Spring 2012 collection as stripes and polka dots are pinned against florals and several other shapes to give the pieces some character and definition. There’s much to appreciate from Yohji’s collection this time around like patterned knits and Nehru-collared button-downs as well as the form-fitting outerwear, silk tops and traditionally-printed trousers.
New York designer Thom Browne brought out his Spring 2012 collection in Paris, showcasing some interesting styling and an amazing line of well-crafted suiting. Pinstriped suits with trousers hitting right at the ankle were featured heavily but that’s expected from Mr. Browne now, isn’t it?
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli deliver arguably one of the best collections from this week’s Paris Fashion Week in Valentino’s Spring 2012 lineup. The pieces are well-cut and offer up some wonderful detailing that’s luxurious but wearable at the same time. Look for military and safari jackets, K-Ways and camp shirts, cargo shorts and hooded parkas but these pieces shouldn’t be mistaken for anything you’ll find at your local army surplus shop. It all comes down to details, folks, and you’ll notice it throughout the collection. For example, the featherlight unlined chambray blazers are woven through with silk to catch the light and the parka’s plaid is patchwork, not print.
