The Callula Lillibele Spring/Summer 2012 presentation at Lincoln Center during MB Fashion Week in NYC, reproduced smartly a new notion of romanticism with a unique identity which is sweet and tasteful. The whole collection put together features from the 30’s, 50’s and 70’s to make statement pieces such as the hot pink under-knee dress which attracted most photographers attention. The designer revealed a long series of polka dot, black lace and animal print items. There was a variety of lightweight and more solid fabrics, with those motifs in many different forms and combinations on jackets, tops, skirts and dresses. Retro elements was an integral part of this collection, as well as the ‘spicing up’ with pieces from a man’s closet such as long blazers and men’s shoes. A certain emphasis was given to accessories framing the looks such as the very feminine thin belts with bows, the strap sandals, and the colorful straw clutches. Models were also wearing wonderful bracelets with large beads. Pencil skirts alternating with full and pleated ones coexisted in the same collection with cute shorts and pants. Transparencies and layering set the mood for seducing looks while metallic shade leathers were the No1 material for shoes – heels and flats. Most of the outfits could be called all-day and some of them brilliant party looks. There was also a prom soft turquoise tulle dress in the middle with a contrasting orange color belt which called for the most romantic modern creatures to wear it. The palette of chosen colors included black and white, heavenly pink, soft beige, vivid orange, vintage yellow, light blue and green. Old and new, the key points of those looks brought about a flare of innocence and ‘sauciness’, the magic duality of women’s nature.
