My very first LGFW show of the season ended up being Attitude by Jay Manuel. Having skipped Day 1, I was really looking forward to hitting the tents, and soaking up the excitement and the buzz surrounding each show. And was there ever buzz for Jay’s Spring 2012 collection! There were rumours that Tyra Banks was planning an appearance, that ANTM model-wannabes were going to be strutting their stuff…there were rumours, but none of them were true.
Instead, we got to see a solid summer collection, full of covetable resortwear pieces, separates for the working girls (not those working girls), and lovely prints. Styled by the multi-talented George Antonopoulos, the show was cohesive, and actually a lot of fun (complete with dry ice, and a psychedelic runway). And though I wasn’t a fan of Jay’s Fall 2011 effort, this collection had me ooh-ing, and aah-ing (and making wishlists) all through the show. Printed pieces had me at hello, as did the pink pants (above), and the sleek trenches. But the object of my desire this time around was definitely the printed jumpsuit (below)! I hope it looks as good on me, as it does on that leggy model.
So tell me, did you like Jay Manuel’s Spring 2012 collection? Share in the comments.
