Manish Arora Fall 2012

Posted by jonny

 

Brooklyn-based graffiti master Judith Supine served as the inspiration for Manish Arora’s colourful Fall 2012 presentation.

Proceedings were kick-started with graffiti artists working their magic on a white backdrop which lined the runway.

Models then took to the runway wearing a selection of looks on a colour palette of sapphire blue, neon pink, citrus orange and black.

We saw fit-and-flare graffiti dresses and skirts, bomber jackets, metallic drop-waist dress with tutu skirts, printed pants, oversized coats, metallic laser-cut dresses and fur jackets.

Amongst the graffiti prints were floral appliqués, smoking-red lip motifs and psychedelic prints.

Models walked the runway with a collection of Nicholas Kirkwood for Pollini open-toe ankle boots.

Nicholas Kirkwood is one of the designers who will be part of this year’s British Designers Collective at Bicester Village

The show ended with models lining up against the now-completed ‘Life Is Beautiful’ graffiti backdrop, blending in like urban chameleons.

The whole show somehow reminded me of Neneh Cherry’s Buffalo Stance video. I’m surprised that wasn’t the soundtrack for this presentation.

Front Row: Zandra Rhodes and Anna Dello Russo

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Fergie, Anna Paquin Winona Ryder, Zooey Dechanel, Bonnie Wright, Corinne Bailey Rae, Fan Bingbing, Mia Wasikowska, Selena Gomez, Fearne Cotton, Eliza Doolittle, Jessie J and Rihanna
