Positively Marni-esque... a compliment, a FUN...color driven (CORAL, EVERGREEN, ORCHID), boldly printed collection-in wearable clever cuts-with slight design twists on the classics---

We thought Corey Lynn Calter started NYFW off just right.
Feminine details like peter pan collar, and classics like this trouser/shrunken blazer duet---and the cross over pencil skirt (right-in rust tone)
Color gurus Pantone deemed tangerine- the Spring 2012 "IT" color---but we love how this flattering orange tone of coral (and a few darker interpretations)--- are just as flattering year round.

Pucci-esque swirling prints-in this 'simple' shift dress...a nod to the 60's silhouette-is really timeless.

Sexy librarian vibe-confident smart girl chic...cropped trousers, peter pan collars, pleats skirts of various lengths...and brilliantly,  an effortless way of mixing colors with prints...not matching up but very pulled together...

dark plum shrunken blazer, sparrow bow bluse, peek-a-boo gauchos with iPad case

pleats and peter pan collar-modest in theory -punched up with bold pink color.

l.a. Eyeworks glasses...lent the right tone to geek chic
