Charlotte Ronson F/W 2012
For this fall/winter 2012 season, Charlotte Ronson kept her quirky 90′s aesthetic but erred on the side of polished. “I wanted to design a modern wardrobe for a real girl,” Ronson told Style.com prior to her show.
The essential pieces for the modernity motif in her collection, which subsequently gave the ensembles a more refined look, were the skinny pencil skirts, slender belts, matched with the glove and aviator-esque hat set. The key to all these pieces was leather, which is by no means unfamiliar territory for Ronson, but certainly had been cut more structured then seasons past. Another key element was the school girl-like collars which have been one of the largest trends come 2012. The color palate was more moody than seasons past with evergreen, chocolate, merlot and plum creating darker, more fitting ensembles for a woman whose grown out of her young, rebellious stage.
While the collection was unquestionably more sophisticated than we’ve seen from the downtown designer, it still featured Charlotte’s most popular signatures and styling. Printed ruffle dresses, hooded sweaters, billowy blouses and pencil skirts, were mix and matched with jewel-toned tights, knee-socks, and lace-up boots.
To complement the designs, Charlotte’s twin sister DJ Samantha Ronson presented an edgy playlist strictly comprised of strong female artists including The Dead Weather, M.I.A, MNDR, Sleigh Bells and more. Everyone’s favorite track was most certainly the cover of M83′s “Midnight City” featuring The Knocks and up and coming singer Mandy Lee.
From the designs to the vibrant runway sounds, it’s no secret why Charlotte Ronson’s show is one of the hottest every season.
