GOOD MORNING MIDNIGHT

NYFW SS2012: GRETCHEN JONES

We have discussed my ever-growing obsession with crazy acid bright digital prints, yes? We have also discussed how I work with a bunch of really amazing people, and one of them is Gretchen Jones, who aside from making awesome things is also one of the nicest humans ever? Yes, okay. So it’s already obvious then that I was way psyched on Gretchen’s presentation yesterday, but I’m going to tell you about it anyway.

The presentation was staged as a police lineup, with twenty numbered near-identical blonde models stepping forward when their number was barked over a loudspeaker.  I love the layering of the same piece in different colours and the fact that so many of the pieces are convertible and can be worn in different ways, but my favourite part is the fabric (and that’s not just because I saw the prints go from computer screen to swatch to dress over the past few months, I swear!)  The blue one on that mermaid maxi skirt (think we know what I’ll be buying here) is actually the 2012 lunar cycle superimposed over the ocean, and the one that looks like a brown floral or prisms is actually a kaleidescope-type print of horses like the background of her website. Makeup was kept simple except for a bright raspberry lip from OCC Lip Tar and the braids made me anxious for my hair to grow out more.
