Stripes inspired by the famous marinière, Jean Paul Gaultier’s favorite motif, were everywhere in Eva Minge’s collection, presented during MB Fashion Week at Hudson Hotel in NYC. Multiple versions of stripes, mostly in blue or black & white, were placed on casual chic and smart business women’s and men’s looks. Other colors used in this rich collection was red, yellow and green. Most lines where fitted with smart details such as zippers and openings. If you are searching for sexy and comfy everyday look, then this is going to be your favorite Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Mini skirts, hot shorts, leggings, and seductive swimwear are among your choices for next season. The whole idea is to get some of the pieces and make with them endless combinations. Geometry, sharp contrasts, underwear and sportswear inspirations made up easy-to-wear items for young, active people looking for ‘basics with a twist’. Most styles were combined with ankle boots which remain a trend for the coming months. Some of the models were also wearing impressive flats, further satisfying the quest for comfort. There was nice tailoring in jackets and trench coats for men and women, and a very interesting hoodie with revealing zipper on the back. The show was huge, so I didn’t manage to stay till the end. I had to rush for the next show (Venexiana) which I knew it was going to be fabulous, and finally I did it!
