Remember that Mad Men scene when Peggy Olson takes a trip downtown to a party where all the artists of the 1960s New York art scene are hanging out? That, with a rush of additional color, is what the Corey Lynn Calter‘s Fall 2012 presentation looked like.
The Los Angeles-based Corey Lynn Calter is already in a lot of stores, her designs are sold from Vegas to Riyadh. It is fun, colorful, and well-made. A lot of pieces in this collection had modern accents on classic cuts such as a 50’s style top with cut out ¾ length sleeves. Every look had you moving from piece to piece – from the blazer’s to their pocket squares; from neon pink legs up to pleated high waist skirts.
“What you put on in the morning says a lot about how your day’s going to go. If you’re not in the mood, don’t put on a fuchsia maxi dress. But sometimes, it can change your mood and attitude,” said Calter.
“You can’t let economy run how you perceive with your life. Yes, you could stay in bed and hide under the covers but it’s about color now; people have to get on board! It’s about using color and how it works for you. Some girls it’s just a bright yellow belt, some it’s an orange shoe. Just do what’s comfortable to you.” said the designer.
