We’re going to let you in on a secret: Spring 2012 is all about SPARKLE MOTION. That’s right, when you emerge from your wintery cocoon-cave ready to breathe in the petunia fumes of a bright ’n’ breezy day, imagine yourself bedazzled, nay BESPARKLED, in the sweetest of sequined embellishments. The spring collections shown at New York Fashion Week offered all kinds of shiny action for both day and night, making the prospect of wearing sequins all the more enticing. Besides, who doesn’t want a little razzle-dazzle in their wardrobe?
Though it’s more of a WOW evening or red carpet type of look, we loved the silvery web-like patterns on Jenny Packham’s peachy gowns. Anna Sui topped floral rompers with short-sleeve sequin jackets and matching berets—a look we could see at a festive garden party or for a dolled-up night on the town. If we had to pick a favorite, though, a SEQUIN BONANZA that had no rival, we must single out Jeremy Scott’s bikini-body dress. Can you believe this thing?! It’s more like a sparkle COMMOTION.
