Spring 2012 runway looks from Derek Lam, Peter Som, and Jen Kao.
Diminutive Liberty blossoms are always a delight, but the spring runways have traded in understated for a bolder approach to prints. A clear theme of “go big or stay home” emerged in zealous florals (Peter Som, ADAM by Adam Lippes, DVF), graphic geometrics (Alexander Wang, Jen Kao), and abstract wonders (Helmut Lang, naturally). Paired back to sleek solids or mixed and matched from head to toe, spring 2012 promises to be a statement of a season.
