Summary: Jeremy Laing sure did make a statement. Bringing together hard-edge and rusted colors with airy fabrics for his Spring 2012 collection, each piece had a structured yet light atmosphere. The collection gives a gothic and ethereal feel, without being too overdone. Every piece is diaphanous, which helps in aiding the ideal that each composition of the collection is a “mirage”.
Each piece also had a bit of a metallic look, which brought the ambiance of the collection to another level. This effect gave another level of dimension to the show. The colors were kept a bit muted, as to not overpower and misconstrue what I believed to be the designer’s vision. For those who feel some collections are deemed too “young” or “cutesy” for spring, this should be right up their alley.
