After a few seasons of simplicity, Erin Fetherston has brought back the type of clothing that she became famous for. Whimsical, elegant, detailed, and complete with a live harpist, the Erin by Erin Fetherston Fall/Winter 2012 presentation was one to remember—and well worth the wait to get into the intimate setting at Milk Studios in Chelsea.
In a refreshing change from the shows I’ve seen so far, Erin Fetherston opted to use pale pinks, greens, purples, and neutrals as the base of her collection instead of traditional autumnal earth tones. This palette was accented by hints of shine in sequins and metallic threading.
From the fabric to the jewelry (metal chokers!), many of the pieces glimmered majestically under the soft lights.
A peachy nude party dress appeared to be splattered with a gold foil treatment, a furry shrug was woven with shiny strands.
Even the shoes stood out: mile high stilettos featured a metallic woven detail on the straps.
Some of the first dresses in sight were cut from abstract animal prints in unexpected colors. (Think purple peacocks and pink zebras!) Other fun prints: a graphic floral seen on a sleeveless dress and cropped trousers.
Pieces photographers flocked to included…
>a pair of pants printed black and yellow daisies
>a rainbow sequined dress with sheer sleeves
>a strapless gold and black brocade cocktail dress styled with a messy topknot
>a grey wool coat with a hood and asymmetrical toggles
Spotted were a host of bloggers, including the ever-fierce BryanBoy. I also ended up standing super close to the designer herself, sporting a new hairstyle and a gorgeous rhinestone studded dress that I imagine was one of her own creations.
