Jill Stuart Womenswear S/S12

Mixing beige, peach and red, the NYC designer added tree prints and quilted silk jackets to her Spring Summer lineup

Having famously sold her first home made fashion goods to Bloomingdales at the tender age of 15, Jill Stuart is no stranger to the fashion business. Today, with almost 20 years as an international brand, the NYC designer has found and established an aesthetic that sees her sell her collections throughout the world. For Spring Summer next year, Stuart went for a colourful and often mismatched palette. beige and red colour combos didn't seem obvious at first but soon made sense, especially when a peach shade was also thrown in for kicks. The fit was often loose and comfortable without loosing the silhouette. Belted dresses and A line skirts kept everything in place and quilted silk jackets added to the luxe feeling. Tree prints added a sense of humour and gold lame a touch of glamour. But it was the subtle pastel colours, pleated skirts and lace detailed tops that characterised this tasteful collection.
