Today was the first day of Merceded Benz Fashion Week Fall 2012 and down at Pier 59, the collection that stood out most to this blogger, was under way. I am talking about the goods from designer Corey Lynn Calter. Her presentation was like “BOOM, here I am!” not just in vibrant colors but in the interesting prints and, subsequently, the pairing of the two. What I really, really loved most? Was that if worn with confidence, any regular gal could pull off these looks. These really are ready to wear.
Ben-Amun provided the strong gold accents for Corey Lynn Calter looks in statement necklaces, bangles and earrings. Chunky Italian resin bangles gave a young at heart feel to color blocked and whimsical patterned dresses while links and hammered gold tribal necklaces lay perfectly against silk button downs and trouser shorts paired with brightly hued tights.
Add a little, tiny bit nerdy, with a dash of edge and a touch of vintage flare and you have one righteous collection. My favorite pieces, as in I would want to call them my very own? The tangerine trousers, ANY of the clutches and the red orange caplet with gold buttons. Ugh, so dreamy. Corey’s pieces have been sold in stores such as Barney’s, Macys and Nordstrom as well as a fan favorite, Anthropologie… so I will most definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for a piece or *two to come into my life within the next year.
*Note to self: Start saving bottle and cans for recycling. We will need those deposits back.
