Spring 2012 Buying Trip- Day 1

Our next stop was to view Marios Schwab. The collection was all about texture for Summer 2012.

Basket weaving on day dresses and cocktail pieces, sequins layered below tulle, and crystal studded leather trims.

Below is a quick shot of the unbelievably beautiful jewellery of Elena Makri.

We then walked over to Peter Pilotto. Now this…was a gasp worthy collection.

It was a mad mixture of Carmen Miranda, with Hawaiian surfer, with Japanese wave art. It burst with colors and volume from skirts to cocoon shaped gowns and masses of full on paillettes.

Just magic.

Our last stop was to skim over the collections of newcomer Burak Uyani. His pieces were quite architectural yet pretty with splashes of color, more basket weaving, snakeskin, and suede. An exciting new collection.

This is only day one my Cheries, plenty more to come in the next ten days- be sure to keep on following AlOthman on Twitter as well as checking up on me here on the blog.
