Stop Staring Fall 2012: Making the Vintage-Inspired New Again!By Eveline Morel | August 16th, 2012 | Category: Articles, Interviews and Reviews, Fashion, Runway | No Comments »
During Style Fashion Week LA, Alicia Estrada’s fall 2012 collection was one of vintage-inspired dresses. This line continues to channel vintage into easy, ready-to-wear pieces that would turn any tomboy surfer chick into a 40’s hourglass-curved vixen, without breaking a girl’s piggy-bank. With palettes of mostly solid colors, with a lot of black, a few touches of plaid, a vintage flower print, and my favorite, a black-on-black polka dot print added just enough edge making this vintage look fresh.
The Stop Staring Fall 2012 Collection centers around two predominant silhouettes: 1) body-conscious, below-the-knee pencil skirts; and 2) fitted tops with a little feminine touch or fitted bodices and flared skirts. The dresses and separates all spoke the same language, with minimal surprises, good or bad.
