Nanette Lepore is Full of Happiness!

Nanette Lepore’s was the only show accompanied with live persormance of a music band I attended this season at Lincoln Center during MB Fashion Week. It was a very amusing and uplifting moment, dominated by a Spring/Summer 2012 collection full of neon and bright colors. There were some vividly hued monochrome pieces and some other with wonderful prints such as stripes and abstract florals. Cute details like bows, smart openings and crochet got us back to the ages of innocence, those ones of our childhood. Blues and pinks painted a great part of the collection while the rest of it was full of neons like yellow, orange and fuchsia combined together in a magical way. Bags and shoes were equally bold, bright and adorable. Ensembles, dresses, trenchcoats and suimsuits followed simple lines with a 50’s flavor pointing to narrow waists and full knee-length skirts. Lace interplaying with brighly colored sub layers were another good surprise at this show. The looks were really feminine and modern, romantic and even futuristic since they added color to a world that turns up to be grey all the time. One of the major highlights was famous photographer Bill Cunningham taking pictures from stylish front-row people and others waiting at the long line to enter this huge space called the ‘Stage’. I happened to be one of the lucky ones to be shot by Bill not only in this show but also at the beginning of the fashion week. Anyway, I loved Nanette Lepore’s vibes in this show. She transforms people into differerent creatures full of positive energy and desire to go on. After September’s 11th 10th Aniversary that mood was absolutely necessary.
