Christian Siriano Spring/Summer 2012 – Christian Siriano showed a strong collection of effortlessly glamorous designs this season. The show began with sleek looks with fresh pops of tropical shades in chartreuse and coral paired with neutral white and oyster. It appears that long, lean silhouettes will still be a strong trend next season. Long chiffon skirts and crepe drawstring waist wide leg pants in chartreuse and coral looked chic and easy. Siriano’s organza pleated maxi skirt paired with white jersey sleeveless oxford elongated the already lengthy legs of the models, which is a look that many will find appealing. A coral crepe oxford with textured chiffon sleeve gave an otherwise simple shell brocade pencil skirt an extra edge and structure.
“For Spring’12, my inspiration is exotic tropical underwater specimens found while traveling to Bali, Honduras, and Belize.” said Siriano in his program notes. One of his chiffon gowns had bands of sheer and textured chiffon in oyster, giving the impression of being a delicate, floating creature, perhaps a jellyfish. The show ended with all the models gliding down the runway in a cloud of gorgeous gowns and sexy cocktail dresses with textured applique in chiffon and tulle. Christian Siriano Gold Shoes For Payless were also whimsical and fun in design with lots of organic shapes and bright colors. For fans of the Project Runway winner and for anyone seeking great looks that stand out from the crowd, you won’t be disappointed.
