Runway Your Way: Nanette Lepore

by Barbara Gonzalez

Fun and feminine as always, Nanette Lepore’s Fall 2012 Collection shows that just because summer is over, doesn’t mean that your wardrobe has to get drearier with the seasons. For fall, Nanette Lepore, well known for her amusing, girly designs, took the same vibrant greens and yellows we enjoyed all summer, and paired them with typical autumnal shades of deep, rich purple, burgundy and orange, helping each individual color truly pop. Overall, the collection is reminiscent of the 60′s and 70′s, with its intricate paisley patterns and flowing gypsy skirts, yet Nanette Lepore smartly grounds the unique styles with classic favorites, such as skinny pants and briefcase purses. These garments definitely stand out from the crowd and are versatile for any occasion, whether you’re making your way to class on a Tuesday, or going out on a Saturday night.
