Luca Luca Spring 2012: Sensual & Feminine Sportswear
One of my favorite collections for the Spring season thus far, Luca Luca S/S 2012 was the quintessential ready-to-wear sportswear collection from the silhouettes to the monochrome brights and vibrant prints. The collection’s color palate was enthralling for me from beginning to end, as the complementary mix of neons, pastels, and jewel tones electrified the runway. Turquoise, beaming lime green, yves klein blue, and rich whites were the stand out hues.
Aside from a little excess drapery on a few of the designs, the 40s style inspired silhouettes created a feminine sporty-chic look, tailored to perfection, which was a perfect matrimony between sexy and classic. The clever use of draped silk, chiffon, charmeuse, and garbadine allowed for the designs to adorn the models in a effortless manner. Some of my favorite shapes included the tailored jackets and trousers, crisp jump suits, and flowing evening gowns. My favorite accent of the show was most certainly the colorful head wraps. Some knotted, others bejeweled, it seems I’ll never tire of the head wrap’s statement and ability to enhance an ensemble in a very bold manner.
Creative Director, Raul Megoza, said “The Luca Luca spring/summer 2012 collection celebrates a woman’s sensuality and femininity. Further reinforcing the mood of the collection: Wrap, tie and button closures allow the wearer the versatility of concealing or revealing as little or as much as the occasion requires.”
