Couture de Pastel
The sherbet hues of spring 2012’s runway are as refreshing as a scoop of pistachio ice cream on a hot summers day. Karl Langerfeld (pictured with Florence Welch) of Chanel designed a dreamy spectrum of pastel confections. Louis Vuitton’s spring 2012 collection is a deluge of creamy, filmy pastels and sugary LV frosting (Confections of Lace, eyelet, organza, and soft fabrics in pale yellow, mint, peach and pink). Elie Saab’s pastel evening gowns, and Phillip Lim’s eezy breezy peaches n’ cream blazers and pants and Ralph Lauren pastel cloches and collared blouses are like airy Macarons in a palette of pastel.
