Lela Rose S/S 2012: Splashes of Beauty

Vibrant, feminine, and yet powerful are all quintessential descriptions for designer Lela Rose. Inspired by the "Neon Graveyard" ( unrestored and broken neon signs that fill the Las Vegas and Coney Island landscape), Lela Rose Spring / Summer 2012 collection diffused some of the brightest neon colors into a soft pastel like hue to simulate how neons would fade overtime. Similar to a finely crafted painting, silks, organza, tulle, and cottons were all the canvases taking in colors such as faded lemon, periwinkle, and neon tangerine. Statement pieces in the collection reflected a wonderful watercolor painting. I'm particularly in love with the khaki double faced jacket interior lined in the neon orange and paired with a blocked knit and panelled short (picture below on left). Certainly, the collection was a wonderful marriage of soft faded hues and electrifying neons, a great story of what happens to the 'new' as time passes- all the while telling a wonderful story.
