Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2012


New mom Rebecca Minkoff knows her bags. She just gets it. The colors, styles, and shapes (not to mention the reasonable price tags) are what women want. Variety is the spice of life, is it not?

For spring, Minkoff has a slew of styles that her fans will no doubt go wild for. My favorite was a quilted one with a chain—and studs. For the ladylike rocker in all of us. I also really liked the leather fringed bags, but perhaps that's from watching The Doors this weekend. (And yes, that's all I'm listening to on my iPod, in case you were wondering.)

Piazza Sempione

I've been a fan of Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi for years. From their eponymous label (Aquilano.Rimondi) and 6267 to seeing what they did at Ferré, I was glad to see them land at Piazza Sempione. Though it's a capsule collection (for the 20th anniversary) and not the main line for spring, the duo's fit with the brand is good. It works. And I was, of course, thrilled to be able to see the clothes in person. Milan is a far ways to travel, after all.

The clothes are expertly tailored (a strong suit with the designers), clean, and modern. Embellishments were kept to a minimum, though there was a paillette-covered dress that I went gaga for. A loose silhouette that shimmers is just what the season calls for!

Stuart Weitzman Spring 2012

Do you know what makes for a great Thursday morning? Shoes. (You knew I was going there, right?) I kicked off my day (pun intended) at Stuart Weitzman, where there was a distinct disco vibe in the air. Patent platforms in pastels and gold as well as even higher platforms in embossed leather held court with sexy, ankle-cuffed heels. The Weitzman girl is going dancing all night long come Spring 2012.

Picking up on the colorblocking runway trend, some of my favorite shoes were in a rainbow pack of colors. Pink, orange and green? Yes! Black, white and red? Absolutely. They're so fun and fresh for the season—makes me wish winter weren't looming before us.
