belle sauvage ss2012

I had such a heart on for the Belle Sauvage spring/summer 2012 collection - their edgy silhouettes and loud digital prints are right up my ally and I knew getting backstage access would lead to some fun photographs. The dresses from this power design couple were all form fitting, many with high collars in either short with peaked shoulders or long and sleeveless. Lots of pleating details and a color palette of lavender, bright yellow, mint green and a bold red kept your eyes busy, especially when combined with their amazing hallucinogenic prints. Every look was styled with a fresh pair of bright white high heeled brogues and the plastic head shields and hats worn by many of the models must have been how people in the 60's probably imagined future flight attendants to look like. The finger wave curls, bold red lips and bright blue eye shadow were perfect touches to a very intense show.
