Pink Tartan: Reinvented 60’s
Early in the morning I went to the Pink Tartan presentation at Fashion Week in NYC, which meant to be a very nice surprise, bringing up the coolest 60’s and 70’s styles mixed up with some 50’s elements, such as full skirts and narrow waists. For Spring/Summer 2012, Pink Tartan suggested classical motifs such as large and small polka dots or thin and thick stripes, geometrical forms such as A-line dresses and pencil skirts, various shades of blue, some combined on the same outfit, orange, sugar white, black with blue and purple and details that could be called ‘very feminine’ even in looks that were on purpose masculine. Here again you could find smartly textured pieces, plain, sophisticated and retro ones. We loved the turtle neck tops worn with sequined pencil skirts making a characteristic metallic noise, ultra short 60’dresses, skinny red pants worn with red turtleneck tops reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot looks, transparent black net tops, 50’s style bikinis, golden sandals which is next season’s must-have item, trench coat dresses, wide belts with cut-out motifs and shirt-dresses with asymmetric hemlines. Models were walking and standing on a square catwalk with smart lighting, that created a dreamy atmosphere in combination with the DJ’s awesome French retro music set!
